Description: Cordoba is considered the dove shooting capital of the world. The 100 square mile radius (60 km) around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 30 million doves. The lodge has around 25 shooting fields, which are within a walking distance or a short drive through the region’s rich farmland.
The program generally starts at 8:00 AM with a hearty breakfast followed by a walk or short drive to the shoot. In the field you will be assigned a bird-boy, who will provide you with shot shells and refreshments and direct you to your shooting stand.
You will be constantly visited by your main guide who will be available to assist you with any need, even give you some tips on shooting if required.
Depending on the time of the year, you will shoot till noon when you will be treated to an incredible barbeque lunch at the lodge, tasting some of Argentina’s wonderful beef and superb wines.
Afternoon begins at around 2 or 2:30 hr., and continues until almost dark. There is no definite time to close the shoot. Return to the lodge for cocktails and early dinner.
Accommodations: The hunting lodge with rich history designed by an American architect with a rancho style design, the lodge is decorated with a great collection of Argentinean trophies. There are six huge bedrooms with private bathrooms. The large living room with a fire place is placed in the heart of the lodge which creates an easy route to a common area where the warmth and an easy social atmosphere is enhanced.
The cuisine is exquisite, with Goyo, our Peruvian chef with 17 years of experience cooking Argentinean food for international hunters: with the best Argentine beef and quality ingredients, he creates an array of delicious traditional specialties and international dishes. Carefully selected Argentine FW wines complement his mouth-watering menus.
From the moment you arrive in Argentina, service is personalized and attention is paid to every imaginable detail. This standard is maintained throughout the house staff and guide tam making this dove shooting program hard to beat.
We have been operating the area for 14 years and we have improved based on the shared experience of our guests.
Capacity – 14 guns with 6 double rooms with private bathrooms (2 more double rooms adjacent to the lodge)
