High-Volume Bird Hunting in La Pampa, Cordoba and Buenos Aires

Dove, Pigeon, Perdiz and Duck Hunting Outfitters

River Plate controls over 80% of the best shooting grounds for all three species in the privileged Entre Rios south, only a 3-hour drive from Buenos Aires. Due to the success of this mixed bag concept, River Plate started another operation in La Pampa province, which also includes giant perdiz over dogs and high-volume decoying pigeons. For over two decades River Plate has been a leader in Mixed Bag Shoots in both Uruguay and Argentina. We take pride in the quality of our “one-stop-shooting” destinations, the training of our staff and the overall service you will receive from the moment we pick you up, all the way to the end of your journey.

During our 30 years of outfitting for the discerning guests, entrusted to us by the most prestigious international booking agencies, we have selected the best wing-shooting grounds in Uruguay and Argentina. We have perfected our services and logistics such as no one else in the business, in order that you might enjoy the wing-shooting trip of a lifetime.

River Plate, in its relentless search for ever-better wingshooting grounds, has expanded its world-class offerings to include Entre Rios province in the East, Buenos Aires province in the South, and their newest and most unique program in the province of La Pampa, in the West. This area offers close proximity to an abundant population of ducks, doves, pigeons, and both spotted and larger elegant crested Tinamou (giant perdiz).

As it has become the norm at any River Plate Wingshooting site, our guests will enjoy plentiful populations of several game bird species—in many cases, most or all of Argentina’s species in the same game-rich location!

All-inclusive Argentina Duck Hunting Lodges

The reasons for River Plate´s extraordinary duck shooting is its successful learning curve on feeding, shoot management, and the selection of areas with more than one water level. For each of its duck programs River Plate feeds 40 to 80 blinds EVERY MORNING. The blinds are easily accessible, there is seldom a need to take a boat or wade through treacherous muck or do any walking at all. Guests will see a continuous stream of low-flying decoying ducks of many species – including the prized rosy-billed pochards – charging into the decoys at a shell consumption rate of one box every 15 to 20 minutes.

Considered a plague in Uruguay and Argentina, doves provide the ultimate high-volume bird shooting experience. It is no exaggeration to say that you can shoot doves in our areas until you are exhausted. Many experienced dove shooters claim that the dove shooting here surpasses in volume and intensity the dove shooting in Cordoba, which has long been considered the world´s foremost dove-shooting destination.

Estancia “La Bellaca” is considered the most luxurious dove destination in South America and the easiest to reach.

This is truly a mixed-bag wingshooting program offering great gunning for all of Argentina’s sportiest species. La Escondida is a comfortable estancia centered in one of the best waterfowl areas in the Buenos Aires Province. Luis VI, formerly a famed big game estancia located right on the best pigeon and giant perdiz habitat in Argentina, is currently being remodeled for River Plate’s shooting guests. Both estancias have 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms.Duck shooting is similar to the standards established at other River Plate estancias and may include shooting over small or large ponds and irrigation canals, which provide for incredible decoying. All duck blinds are within 30 minutes from the estancia and 10 yds from the pick up truck. A number of duck blinds are conveniently situated for a half day shoot on the way to the upland area in San Luis Province.Giant Perdiz (or Montaraz) either driven or over dogs is bountiful and can only be shot legally in the Pampa’s brushlands.Pigeons abound in the brushy habitat favored by the Giant Perdiz.

This is truly a great shooting experience that rivals or surpasses the pigeon shooting in England and Paraguay.Doves are shot at one of South America’s largest roost next to estancia Luis VI and rivals Cordoba, with the added bonus that there is no significant driving time.Perdiz A River Plate classic. The spotted tinamou (or common perdiz) gets up with an explosive take-off and flies swiftly and in a straight line making it a very challenging target; one that upland gunners love to hunt over pointing dogs.Itinerary Day 1: Arrival day.

Three Feather Shoot

Our three feather program offers the possibility to hunt for the perfect mix of feathers granting a serious challenge to our savvy guest hunters.The dove shooting in southern Entre Rios Province is truly super-high volume, rivaling anywhere in South America. Hunters will routinely go through 40 – 80 boxes per day and enjoy a variety of shooting blinds – on the perimeter of standing corn or sorghum fields, in the midst of cut sunflowers, in dense roosting cover and along flight lines.MIXED BAG PROGRAM – ENTRE RIOS, ARGENTINA • Day 1: Arrive at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Upon arrival you will be met by a member of our staff, who will assist you with gun clearance, customs, etc. and transfer to El Rincón Gualeguay, Entre Ríos (approx. 3 hours drive). • PM: dove shoot. • Day 2 and 3: At the guests option the morning may be at ducks (max. 5 boxes or 40 ducks; the first of the two) or perdiz over dogs (max 10 birds), returning to the estancia for lunch and siesta, followed by a dove shoot in the evening. Cocktails, dinner and continued overnight accommodations at the estancia. • Day 4: Duck hunting in the morning. After lunch and packing, transfer by van to your Hotel or International Airport in Buenos Aires.In this region, ducks are resident and migratory, in amazing numbers their flocks can blot the dawn over shallow freshwater lagoons, rice fields and riverine marshes. Each species – as diverse as the rosy-billed pochard, speckled and silver teal, brown pintail, fulvous and white faced tree ducks – works decoys in its patent way.The rosy-bill, South America´s prized large-bodied duck, is normally the most abundant species and decoys with spine-tingling verve. RPW´s guides get you to the blindes in stable 20-foot boats, powered by Go-Devils or with an anphibious 6×6 ATV, set out decoys, retreive the bag assisted by Labradors, and can call the ducks. Blinds have movable, revolving seats. The wild native spotted tinamou, “perdiz”, resemble a small partridge. When flushed, “perdiz” fly fast and skim away on rushing wingbeats that delight upland gunners who love hunting over pointing dogs. Whether in South America or worldwide, this class of wild bird hunting over pointers is a rarity. Not at all unusual are 25 points in an hour. the terrain is easy: short grass pastures of fallow land – no brush, thorns or cactus.During the cool mornings “perdiz” are the favored quarry . In Entre Rios, “perdiz” and bird dogs invest upland hunters with fresh dimensions of sport and companionship, wile at table, many rank the “perdiz” the finest of all white-meat game birds.Along with the splendid hunting, guests will enjoy luxurious accomodations, the finest in cuisine and Argentine wines, and the caring and congenieal service for which River Plate is well known.
