The Story

Go wingshooting in Arizona and enlist the help of the experts at Orvis-endorsed Dave Brown Outfitters. Arizona owned-and-operated Dave Brown Outfitters, L.L.C. is based out of our home in Patagonia, AZ , which is located in southeast corner of the state. D.B.O. offers a wild bird-only guided Arizona quail and dove hunt experience on a mix of private and public land, to wingshooters of all levels of expertise.

Along with our knowledge of the area and the habits of Arizona quails, the largest commercial dog string helps ensure your trip is a success. D.B.O, is fully insured, licensed, permitted, and we have the proper vehicles and other equipment to ensure your hunt is a success.

We are surrounded by the Coronado National Forest, which is home to the best Mearns quail hunting in the United States and the world. Gambels and scaled quail hunting opportunities can be found a short distance away in their respective habitats.

Outfitting and delivering quality Arizona quail hunts is our main focus in life. This is not a sidebar. It is easy to see why we are the go-to outfitter for those seeking a top-shelf Arizona quail and dove hunting experience. Our licensed Arizona hunting guides competently guide parties of two to 10 hunters with a one-guide-to-two-hunters ratio.

All of our guides work and live in the area. Some are retired or active Border Patrol Agents. We spend a great deal of time in the off season training dogs and scouting out new hunting areas, ensuring that you will be into new and productive covers.
