Southeast Texas Bachelor Party Dove Hunt

Southeast Texas Wedding Planning 

Alternative Bachelor Party Ideas

Are you looking for a fun Southeast Texas bachelor party idea that won’t derail your wedding?

How about a dove hunt?

Southeast Texas grooms are a different breed. That’s why when we plan bachelor parties, we often center them around the activities that appeal to us – hunting, fishing, and enjoying the beauty of the Southeast Texas outdoors.

Smoky bars and nightspots have their place, but for many Southeast Texas grooms, the outdoors are just special.

My father-in-law spent the morning of his wedding squirrel hunting. I’ve known other guys to enjoy a Rayburn or Toledo Bend duck hunt and then make a quick dash to the shower and church. Southeast Texas brides may not love it, but they like it more than some of the other bachelor party alternatives!

This time of year, a dove hunt can be a perfect Southeast Texas bachelor party backdrop.

Dove hunts make great Southeast Texas bachelor parties.

For grooms, some of the nice things about a dove hunt for their bachelor party include:

  • You can make a dove hunt bachelor party as exclusive or inclusive as you want. If you want to invite your father-in-law to be, this is the safest kind of bachelor party. You know, as long as he doesn’t “accidentally shoot you”. If you want it just to be you and a couple of your oldest friends, just tell people your hunting location is “off the grid”.
  • Loose lips sink ships. At a dove hunt bachelor party, you won’t have to worry about who saw you at the club or “what they think they saw you doing”.
  • You’ll be sharing the outdoors with your boys. You’ll be able to talk, share old memories, and make new ones.
How romantic. Shoot!

How romantic. Shoot!

Dove hunting also works for Southeast Texas grooms no matter their budget.

You can keep it simple and load a case of shells and a cooler in the back of your truck. You don’t get much more budget friendly than that.

In the mid-range you can make it a camping trip. Nothing is better for swapping stories than a campfire.

If you want to splurge a little, consider a Southeast Texas or South Texas dove outfitter:

  • They’ve been working hard to make sure they know where the birds are and how to get you on them.
  • Most have a pretty nice lodge where you can relax and kick back after the hunt.
  • Waking up at a nice lodge thirty minutes before a hunt can beat waking up at 4am and making a long drive to the dove field.
  • Option 1: The Drake Plantation
  • Options 2: Central Flyway Outfitters

The important thing for your Southeast Texas bachelor party is that it should be a reflection of you. 

  • It should be centered around and activity or activities that you enjoy.
  • It should include the people you want to spend this special time with.
  • You should create a memory that will stick with you and your friends for a long, long time.
Whew! That's a lot of doves.

Whew! That’s a lot of doves.
