Mexico white-winged dove hunting was tons of fun. It was wingshooting nirvana. I simply did not expected the volume.
White wings are bigger, stronger prettier birds than the little Argentine eared dove. It was wingshooting nirvana. I simply did not expected the volume, not yet knowing that during October typically the birds are more congregated, which is why they swarm! Most traveling hunters consider a “volume” hunt one that involves shooting 20 boxes of shells in a morning and we did that every time here. It’s not the endless river of doves in the sky that sometimes happens in Cordoba, but it’s a much shorter trip, and it’s not the same shot over and over again, either. These birds arrive wildly, and from all directions. So you’ve mastered that slanted descending approaching shot? When you have to spin and take the rising and away left-to right shot, you will surely enjoy a solid bite of humble pie, if not an entire slice. Mexico white-winged dove hunting was tons of fun.
