Upland Bird Hunting Experiences

Experience quail hunting and pheasant drives through the rolling hills of oak and mesquite thickets lined with native-grass prairies. The pre-season release program combined with the large number of native birds result in an unequaled quail population. Our upland bird hunters have the opportunity to choose from several different types of upland hunting from September through March. The number of quail and pheasant hunts are limited to ensure every trip to the field is the very best wing-shooting hunt possible.

Dove Hunting

Strategically located in the southern portion of the central flyway, The JL Bar Ranch & Resort is intensively managed to attract large numbers of native and migratory dove. Hunters will see all three species on the ranch in September and October; the Mourning Dove, the Collared Dove, and the Whitewing Dove.

Spring Turkey Hunting

The JL Bar Ranch & Resort is home to an incredible population of Rio Grande turkeys. Taking a big gobbler during the spring season can be one of the most challenging and rewarding of all hunting experiences. Whether you are looking for a turkey hunting destination for yourself or a group, large population of birds, professional guides, and luxurious accommodations make The JL Bar Ranch & Resort the perfect destination for the Turkey hunt of a lifetime.
