Jose Aleman - Owner/Partner
Jose Aleman, Owner/Partner
Jose has always had a natural gift for shooting, hunting and finding game. His father, Jorge Aleman, owned an El Dorado 35 years ago, hunting and fishing Lake Guerrero for a decade. Jose being involved at an early age in the hunting/family business gave him a passion for the outdoors. His experience in hunting Tamaulipas all his life helps him find the perfect ranches and leases to make your hunt a once in a lifetime experience.
His father and older brother were part of the Mexico’s International Skeet Team, both going to World Cups, Pan-American games and Central American games. Jose’s also a great shot both on the field or the skeet range, you can say he had a great teacher!
One of the family business is a sporting goods store in Ciudad Victoria, so a shotgun shell shortage will never be a problem at Hacienda El Dorado.
Hacienda El Dorado is a dream come true for him, always wanting to continue his fathers legacy. Jose will always do his best to give you a wonderful experience while putting you always on birds.
