Literally meaning “Dove Party,” Paloma Pachanga’s hunting fields were chosen for their location—the historic flyway for millions of migrating doves! Hunters can pick their shots, or limit out minutes after their professional host guides them afield. Either way, celebration shall ensue after the guns are cased.
Venatura’s flagship wingshooting destination, Two Creeks Lodge, is a haven of sporting luxury surrounded by acres of outstanding bird hunting. After a memorable five-course dinner prepared by Chef Mike and a great night’s rest in our exquisite dogtrot style lodges, sportsmen will ride to the field via custom Critter Gitter vehicles that must be seen to be believed. Upland hunts consist of flushing hard-flying quail, chukar and pheasants over professionally trained pointing dogs. As game vests sag, clients can retire for cigars and cocktails–or the five stand range–to continue this high-end brand of Venatura fun.
La Pryor, Texas
Thanks to the topographical variation and floral diversity sustained by the clear Nueces River that cuts through wending gorges, Venatura’s La Fortaleza is unlike typical South Texas mesquite ranches. The 13,000-acre property produces giant whitetails aplenty, but it’s also home to axis deer, wild bobwhites and several other species of exotic game. Be our guest while enjoying modern lodging, a Spanish-style fort and a scenic well-water pool after you hunt big game via tower blinds, custom hunting vehicles or spot-and-stalk tactics amid this legendary land on the Nueces.
Port Aransas, Texas
There are boats, and then there is Ventatura’s pride of the floatilla, the sleek and stately Centurion sportfishing yacht. Spanning 74 pristine feet from bow to stern with a worldly range capable of 46 knots, she’s a head-turner even in the slip, but she’s much more at home bedecked with bent rods and billfish. Piloted by the legendary Captain Pete Rae, clients will experience five-star amenities at sea–and more importantly–world-class fishing, when they charter the Centurion for the oceanic adventure of a lifetime.
Port Aransas, Texas
Overlooking Texas’ Gulf Coast on the docks of Port Aransas, Cotter House is the place for pure, uninhibited relaxation. Its three floors of modern beach-house comfort provide a picturesque setting to host friends or family and enjoy all the water offers via charter fishing, included Wave Runners, paddle boarding and countless other activities. Or simply open the glass doors, settle in and grill out as the sun sets over Cotter House and the coastal getaway of your dreams.
