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.

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!

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.
