There are 3 different bird hunts that Legelela Safaris has to offer all wing shooters. Dove and pigeon, land fowl, and water fowl.
There is no specific hunting season on dove and pigeon. The best time on crop fields is March to May, where you can expect 500 to 1500 shots per day. Mid-September to the end of February we do dove and pigeon shoots at a cattle feedlot. All hunting is done on flight lines. There are 3 species of dove: Red-eyed Dove, Cape Turtle Dove, and Laughing Dove. Two species of pigeon are also hunted: Rock Pigeon and Feral Pigeon.
The hunting season on land and water fowl is from the 1st of May up to the 31st of August. Well trained English and German pointers are used on all our land fowl hunts. There are 6 species of land fowl on the menu: Grey-winged Francolin, Swainson’s Francolin, Orange River Francolin, Red-wing Francolin, Helmeted Guineafowl and Kurrichane Button Quail.
We only hunt water fowl early mornings. Yellow-billed Duck, Cape Teal and Red-billed Teal are mainly hunted on flight lines. Decoys are used on Egyptian and Spur-winged goose. A combination of all bird is hunted on most safaris if season permits
