Everything you need to know about hunting!



Hunting Licenses, Gun Permits and Game Limits
You are not allowed to bring guns and ammunition into Mexico, it’s against the law and if caught you could go to jail, lose your gun and more.

You can bring 2 guns and 100 shells per gun for hunting purposes if you obtain a military permit and have a hunting license contract with a guide. The hunters of Campo Ramona use 2 entities to obtain the necessary documentation.

The benefit of hunting in Mexico a long uninterrupted season, large game limits an abundance of fields and waterways to hunt.
  • Dove: This is the longest season, it starts in August and ends at the end of February, the limit is 45 per tag, tag cost about $50.
  • Quail: Mid October through January, limit is 30 per tag, tag cost about $50
  • Pheasants: Late October through January, limit 8 per tag, cost per tag $50
  • Ducks, Geese and Brant: early November through February, limits 30 per tag, tags cost about $100.
The above costs are approximate and should be verified by contacting the 2 entities above and are shown here to give the reader an idea of the hunting opportunities and related costs.

Since Campo Ramona and our hunting grounds are in Baja, which is about the same climate as Palm Springs, warm and hot. Most of the upland game hunting is in shorts and a tee shirt and waterfowl hunting is done in layered clothing to accommodate a cold early morning boat ride and the warming of the late morning sun. lightweight full waders are the pants of choice.
