hunting - Dove & pigeon
Our prime location and superb facilities make our dove hunting operation the top choice for wingshooting in northern Argentina.
Tucumán and Santiago del Estero provinces provide a variety of shooting roosts, feeding fields with crops, water holes, and sugar cane ranches, that will challenge our hunters daily. The type of hunt will also vary according to weather conditions, agriculture calendar, harvesting, and time of the year.
Our proximity to the hunting grounds allows us to return to the lodge for lunch and rest before the afternoon hunt. Driving to any dove field will take between 10 and 25 minutes.
Since our beginnings, we have worked and developed along with government wildlife departments, to establish an exclusive area for each outfitter in the provinces where we work. These policies lead every operation to be responsible for a sustainable hunting planning across the board. We are the only ones in an area of 100 kilometers around, taking care of every roost, ranch and land that we lease. Scouting, creating a strategic plan and developing the hunts following these rules took us to offer a quality and consistent operation.
The massive population of doves makes this region an extremely wild and impressive spot for hunters. In this rich environment with farmland, doves have found an ideal space for proliferation and have multiplied to an overwhelming extent.
As dove populations have severely increased in number making them harmful to agriculture, dove hunting has become an important component to control overpopulation. In addition, it provides valuable employment for the local communities.
Depending on the time of the season, pigeon hunting trips can be added to the itinerary upon prior request.
