La Finca Lodge is located in downtown San Fernando, Mexico on the Laguna Madre, an hour and ten minutes from Harlingen, Texas. This convenient, safe and comfortable getaway is perfectly situated near the largest white-winged dove nesting area in the world and in the middle of thousands of acres of sorghum, corn and sunflower fields. The Laguna Madre is also home to over 3 million species of ducks. Known as the breadbasket of Mexico, this area in the state of Tamaulipas, is ideal habitat for white-winged and mourning dove, and for huge coveys of wild bobwhite quail. A few miles away, along the Mexican gulf coast, waterfowling is highlighted as the large North American flyways converge in this coastal region which contains large freshwater “pans” as well as shallow saltwater bays. This variety allows hunters to combine shoots of quail and duck in the morning or dove and quail in the afternoon.
Owned and operated by national sportsman Steve McCain, the La Finca Lodge staff has over two decades’ experience with wingshooting. Extensive pre-hunt scouting minimizes drive times to the shooting areas. Quailhunting trucks are new and kept in excellent condition, as are the gator tail boats used for duck hunting. For the convenience of guests who don’t wish to bring their own firearms, a selection of Beretta shotguns is available.
