SPECIES & SEASON

Doves

The Eared dove is a species endemic in most of South America, about the same size and coloration as the North American Morning Dove. Its distinctive feature, and what gives it its English name, is the dark feathers on the lower ear coverts. Like pigeons in general, its flight is fast, high and direct.
The fields in Cordoba area are the natural environment for a huge amount of Eared Doves. Eared Dove population, estimated in more than 50 millions, make Cordoba the wing shooter’s paradise for those looking for a hot barrel experience.

SHOTTING DAY

  • Cordoba is considered the dove shooting capital of the world. Over 50 million doves annually inhabit the 60-mile radius (95 km) of the lodge. The lodge features 40 shooting fields, which are within a 30 or 40-minute drive through rolling hills.
  • Like doves worldwide, they offer fast and challenging shooting – the difference here is their monumental number. On a typical day, guns shoot from 1000 to 2500 cartridges, or even more.
  • We meet in the morning for a delicious breakfast at 7.30 am.
  • After a short drive of 30 or 40 minutes, you arrive in the shoot where you are assigned a bird-boy. He will assist you with shells and drinks and anything you may need and one of our professional guides will be around ready to help you too.
  • We take a break at midday to enjoy a wonderful lunch in the field: an incredible barbeque with the famous Argentine beef.
  • Afternoon shooting begins after a short rest and continues until almost dark. We are flexible according to guest’s preference.
  • When the shooting day is over, you continue with cocktails and an early dinner at the lodge.
  • The shooting fields are carefully rotated and rested to assure maximum bird number. This is part of our Game Management Program, which allows for a successful big-bag shooting season all year round.

  • Thank you very much for a brilliant trip we all had a fantastic time. Julian and myself thought on the plane last night that the sights were superior to two years ago and David and George haven’t stopped talking about it, they are over the moon

  • Three lovely days shooting, an excellent host, plenty birds. The star performance was the palomas in the garden of your lodge, a good wind and very high and fast doves. Perfect quality. Gracias
