Argentina Dove Hunt – Small
These luxury boutique Argentina dove hunt lodges define luxury. Shocking value without giving up service, excellent meals or exceptional volume dove hunting.
These lodges are owned and operated by two brothers. They have spent the past 17 years developing a reputation for spectacular accommodations and customer service. Because of this, they have created the finest dove shooting experiences in Argentina.
Cordoba Province is set in the heart of Argentina dove hunting. The mild climate, extensive agriculture, and perfect roosting conditions produce an ever-increasing population of doves. These attributes of the area create the best dove hunting in the world.
This Argentina dove hunt outfitter owns and controls over 20,000 acres of the best land in Argentina. These properties are located in the heart of the prime roosting areas of Argentina. Typically the roosting grounds are heavily wooded areas with native trees and crossed by natural streams. These produce an ideal habitat for the reproduction of doves.
Surrounding these refuges are valleys furnished with large amounts of grain, providing a consistent source of food for doves. In addition, crops are planted on their land exclusively for dove. They use no till methods, which provide unlimited amounts of food for the birds. By practicing game management techniques, this operation has been able to provide a one-of-a-kind experience. They are the only outfitters in the area that offer excellent shooting throughout the whole year.
The observers in the group, or those who decide to take a day off, will enjoy horseback riding, polo matches and lessons, wine tours, spa and more. Or just enjoy sitting by the outdoor fire pit enjoying the lovely setting.

The eared dove is the most prominent game bird in the area.
A recent Argentine Game and Natural Resources study estimates the dove population in the area to be upwards of 32 million birds.
The eared dove is similar in size and appearance to the North American mourning dove. A typical shooting day starts after a sumptuous breakfast, with departure to the fields by 8 AM.
The shooting fields at each lodge are carefully rotated and rested to assure maximum bird numbers. The driving distance to the fields ranges between 30 and 50 minutes in one of our new 15 seat passenger vans with air conditioning, refreshments and two-way radios.
Clients shoot with their own experienced professional bird boy, who will provides shells, acts as a loader, retrieves downed birds and keeps cool drinks at the ready.
Shooting continues until noon, when the group gathers in a shady grove of trees for a traditional Argentine asado (barbeque) complimented with salads, gourmet desserts and fantastic wines.
After lunch and an optional siesta, the shoot continues until approximately 6 PM.
Upon returning to the lodge, relax with drinks and hearty hors d’oeuvres while dinner is prepared. Or sooth your muscles and unwind with a professional massage from our staff therapist.
Beginning wing shooters will have countless opportunities to improve their skill level due to the excellent conditions of the shooting fields.
Experienced guns can take great satisfaction in picking more challenging high targets. You can expect to shoot between 2 to 4 cases of shells in a normal day.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Links to the companies we recommend:
While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times! The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible. Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.
Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues. It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.
