Viva Mexico Quail Hunting

While U.S. upland bird seasons are closed by March, this month is prime time for quail hunting in some parts of sunny Mexico, particularly for the black-throated bobwhite variety found throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. NRA Outdoors, a service that organizes hunting and fishing excursions specially tailored to NRA members, offers an intriguing three-day hunt in Yucatan’s rural northern coastal plain, not far from the tourist mecca of Cancun. A party of six American hunters, including NRA Outdoors chief Greg Ray and Editorial Director John Zent, found the welcome there to be as warm as the weather, the birds were abundant, and the shooting downright excellent.

Thanks for reading. For this hunt you fly into Cancun, so it's quite easy to get there. You can find further details about what's involved at:, or better yet, give program manager Greg Ray a call at 918-258-7817 and he can fill you in on all NRA. Outdoors hunts that fit your interests. Also, a feature article on the Yucatan hunt is slated to run in the August 2014 American Hunter magazine.
