Texas Ladies Hunt Series - Wimberley, Texas

New to upland hunting? Our Enter the Uplands Ladies Hunt November 7th-9th with Spoke Hollow Outfitters is the perfect opportunity for a new hunter or shooter to get a hands-on welcome to the world of upland hunting.

Over the course of two evenings and a full day in the field, we cover topics ranging from gun safety and mounting to how to shoot over dogs and field etiquette. You will leave this experience with a deeper understanding of the uplands, what to expect in the field, and the basics of preparing your game.

Example Schedule :

  • Arrive at 5pm to meet the field mentors and team
  • Practice shooting sporting clays at Spoke Hollow Outfitters’ sporting clays course to gain confidence in your shot and gun
  • Enjoy a wild game dinner and drinks around the fire pit
  • 8am breakfast followed by a safety briefing before going into the field to learn proper field etiquette, bird identification and safely moving around dogs with a loaded gun.
  • Break for lunch in the field
  • After lunch continue building on your knowledge and begin practicing shooting live birds in different hunting scenarios.
  • Bring your harvested birds back to camp and learn how to pluck and prepare for your own dinner table.
  • Last day will wrap up with further discussion about hunters’ critical role in conserving wild spaces and how you can participate in future opportunities

This ladies-only hunt includes all meals and lodging, skill development and mentored instruction, work with experienced upland dogs, and clays and ammunition.
