El Dorado Outfitters operates in the heart of Tamaulipas’ bobwhite quail country, a true sportsman’s paradise. The area has long been known for its wingshooting, and the present is as good as it has ever been! We have ranches and fields that haven’t seen a quail hunter in 20 years, the beauty of the area is still largely untouched.
We offer wild quail over well-trained bird dogs, ducks in freshwater ponds and lakes, doves in the surrounding agricultural fields, and turkeys and bass fishing in the spring.
We pride ourselves on providing world-class wingshooting, accommodations, and personal service. An owner of El Dorado Outfitters will be guiding your hunt, hosting you at the lodge, and in attendance at all times. We not only own the operation, we live it, and we love it.
El Dorado Outfitters invites you to come experience some of the best quail hunting and wingshooting the world has to offer.
At all times our guests' experience is the top priority, from the second you arrive until you depart, our staff will go above and beyond. Upon arrival at the lodge, we greet each guest with a cold drink and a hot towel. Drinks and appetizers are at your request.
Prepared fresh by our chef each day, you will be treated to contemporary and traditional local fare. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all considered a chance to showcase the food of Northeast Mexico. The same ranch land that produces the quail we hunt also produces some of the finest beef in Mexico. We prepare steaks, fajitas, and other hearty food to fuel long days in the quail pastures.

BirdDog exists to provide Hunters with exceptional hunting experiences. By partnering with ranch owners, we give Hunters access to a broad range of hunts across many types of game, and we ease the marketing, scheduling and administrative burden for Landowners. Our partner ranches include properties with five-star lodging and amenities and those with more modest accommodations. Similarly, some ranches are set up for trophy hunts with a high chance of successful for a once-in-a-lifetime trophy, while others are geared toward the chase. BirdDog aims to ensure both new and seasoned Hunters alike confidence that their hunting experience will be what they expect. Above all, our goal is to facilitate memorable experiences for all hunting guests.
We strive to provide complete and accurate information in the ranch profile. If you don't find what you need there, please contact us by emailing BirdDog directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive an email with additional details about your hunt immediately after booking, and exact location details will be sent approximately one week prior to your hunt. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with questions at email@example.com.
Most types of game listed on BirdDog require a hunting license. Additionally, in Texas, Hunter Eduction is required for all hunters born after September 2, 1971. Hunters from the age of 9-16, who are accompanied by a properly certified adult of at least 17 who is licensed to hunt in Texas are also exempt. Hunter Eduction requirements can be met by completion of an in-person or online course. When hunting on private property, animals that do not require a license include: hogs, coyotes, bobcats, and other nuisance animals.
The entirety of the base cost of the hunt is paid through BirdDog's website upon booking. In the event that the hunter takes a larger animal - or additional animals - the balance will be charged after the hunt. Hunters are expected to tip guides a minimum of 10%.
Suggested gear for your hunt will be emailed with the hunt details after booking. In most cases you will need to bring your own firearm. Some ranches have firearms available for use. In the event that the ranch does not offer firearms for use, and you don’t have access to one, please let BirdDog know, and we will work to procure one.
Hunters who, during the the course of the hunt, do not have an opportunity for the animal they're after will be offered a credit to return and hunt again at just the cost of lodging. This typically does not apply for low-fence hunts. If a Hunter wounds an animal, misses a shot, or does not take a their intended animal, the full price will apply.
BirdDog provides incredible hunting experiences for seasoned and new Hunters alike. All hunts are guided by experts who are happy to educate and instruct as necessary. We do, however, recommend that you practice at a shooting range before big game hunts as injuring an animal commits you to paying the full price of that animal.
