Being one of the pioneering outfitters of Duck and Dove Hunting here in Nicaragua. We are proud to celebrate our 50th Year Anniversary with you. Since 1966, it has been a family business, with the dedication to excellence, affordability, and just having fun. We have always worked on the philosophy that the success of a hunt is not only determined in the number of birds you harvest, but, in the complete experience as a whole. Also, hunting with us, you hunt entirely on private lands. We do not hunt in reserves or take clients where they are not supposed to be. Very important when choosing an outfitter in Nicaragua.
2017 - 18 Season Forecast
We are still feeling the effects of the 2015-16 season, which gave us very uncommon weather conditions. We struggled with an early season drought, and very high winds. This made the duck hunting, especially difficult due to rice fields were not flooded, and water was hard to find. It helped in concentrating the ducks, but once you set up and shot into them, they had no close place to retreat to, making them fly longer distances, and was not coming back as normal. The high winds made the dove hunting changeling to say the least, with birds not flying as well as normal. But, still was a great year, with many birds harvested. The drought has not hurt the dove population or hunting. We are actually seeing an increase in the dove numbers for the last two years.
It is expected for 2017-18 season, for the rains to pick up during the following months just as it did last year, which will motivate rice farmers to start planting as well, this will work perfectly by the time the duck migration starts. This rainfall will also fill some of the ponds surrounding lake Managua, which at the moment is too dry. The vast migrations of ducks (mainly blue wing teal) are attracted to these ponds, concentrating thousands of birds within a small area. This is due to the fact that we bate these ponds and that the winds create small waves in the big lakes making it difficult for the ducks to be rafting in these large bodies of water. With this we are expecting for great duck hunting this year in both the rice fields and the ponds and marshes surrounding the lakes. Rice farmers are setting irrigation systems in case the rainfall is not as expected, this way the rice crops will not be delayed by climate conditions.
Currently There is incredible dove hunting over corn and sorghum fields that were harvested. We are also currently having good hunting for Black belly and Fulvous tree duck which have concentrated in the few remaining rise fields which will soon be harvested and prepared for the upcoming rains.
We are proud to announce that Buck McNeely will be coming back to hunt with us again in 2017.
With all the new regulations on weapons and ammunition in the U.S. it is getting a bit harder to get shells but we are doing our best to secure a good amount of the best possible quality ammo for our groups. Our recommendation for all of our groups is to send deposits ASAP to guarantee dates and ammo for their group.
At this time we still have openings for the 2017 and 18 season. We do have a lot of inquires, and a lot of reservations. We have always worked on the first come, first serve basis for our hunts. If you are planning a duck or dove hunting trip with us, we highly recommend you get your deposits in ASAP to hold your spots. They go fast, and I have seen in one day, almost a whole month gets booked up. We only take so many hunters, and do not like to group people together, unless it is the request of the hunter or the group. We like to keep things private and personal.
