Cordoba Dove Hunting – Seasons & Weather

What is the best time of the year for dove hunting in Cordoba?

The dove hunting season in Cordoba is open year-round and the shooting can be spectacular any day of the year.  The climate in Cordoba is moderate and we are rarely affected by extreme weather.  Keeping in mind that the seasons in the northern hemisphere and the southern hemisphere are reversed, here is a quick breakdown of the weather in Cordoba and the dove hunting throughout the year.

Dove Hunting in the Spring (September – December) is when we enjoy terrific weather and high-volume dove shooting extremely close to the lodge.  In early spring, high temperatures average in the mid 70’s and by late spring reach the mid 80’s.  Evening temperatures typically range from the high 40’s to the low 60’s.

Dove Hunting in the Summer (December – March) provides us with the longest days of the year hunters can enjoy a couple extra hours of shooting each day.  While the days can be warm, temperatures rarely exceed 90 degrees and evening lows are usually around 60.

Dove Hunting in Fall (March – June) coincides and overlaps with our heavy harvesting season in Cordoba.  The dove can be quite active during this time, moving from farm to farm.  There are occasions when massively intense concentrations of birds converge on a property resulting in what is called a “dove hurricane.”  Daytime temperatures are usually a comfortable 65 to 75 degrees and evening temps can dip between 45 and 55 degrees.

Dove Hunting in the Winter (June – September) is usually very moderate and arid. With little rain, we enjoy cloudless blue skies throughout much of the season, making for ideal dove hunting conditions. Daytime highs range between 60 and 70, with lows in the mid 40’s.
