A Day on an Argentinian Pigeon Shoot

A typical hunting day starts with a good breakfast in the lodge, after which you will drive to the hunting district. The hunting guides will already have been orientated on where the pigeons are flying, so they can make sure they place their hunters in the optimal areas. When you arrive in the hunting district each hunter will be assigned an experienced “bird boy” who will show the individual hunters to their place and make sure that the hunter is supplied with cartridges, refreshments etc. during the shoot. They will also be able to offer advice if needed. It is not unusual to take between 1,000 - 2,000 shots during a single day!

Depending a little on the season, we will normally hunt until lunch time. You will then be taken back to the lodge where you will be served a really delicious barbecue lunch in the shade, naturally the menu include Argentina’s famous beef and wonderful wine. You will then have the chance to take a short siesta before starting the hunt again at around 14.00 - 14.30. Hunting normally continues until darkness falls. After the hunt ends you will be drive back to the lodge where your hosts will be waiting with cocktails and a big dinner. 

The hunting areas are carefully selected by the outfitter to ensure that all areas only receive moderate hunting pressure, and that the maximum numbers of pigeons are always available. The hunting districts are between a 20-30 minute drive from the lodge, in one of the outfitters air-conditioned mini-busses.

One of Argentinas best hunting lodges

You will stay in what is possibly Argentina’s best lodge for hunters and fishermen, with its own sauna, massage room and jacuzzi, as well as a fantastic view over the Parana River.

Combination with rifle hunting and fishing

If you feel like taking a break from pigeon shooting you can spend a couple of days on a big game hunt or fishing on the River Parana for dorado and catfish. The outfitter offers a very attractive rifle hunt on a nearby district on which you can easily spend 1 -2 days. You can choose to spend a night in the outfitter’s other lodge, called Malalcue Lodge, or alternatively drive to this hunting district early in the morning and hunt there all day, stopping for a large lunch in the field, before driving back to the lodge in the evening after the hunt. 

Circa a 2 hour drive north of the lodge Estancia Cortaderas, the outfitter has a hunting district some 40,000ha. in size. Here he offers hunting for big game on some of the farms in the Corrientes district. The hunt takes place in the open countryside, and you typically hunt for Blackbuck antilope, Axis stags and wild boar. There is also a good population of South American water buffalo which you can also hunt.

Erland on Wing Shooting in Argentina

It is the Best Pigeon Shooting in the World

But my friend just replied “You can’t be so stupid! You simply can not travel all the way to Argentina just to shoot pigeons!". JI tried to explain that there is a lot more to it than just shooting pigeons, but he just shook his head.

I’m Now Standing in a Field of Sunflowers

Behind me is standing Jamie, my bird boy. He is holding one of the Benelli shotguns I have hired, while I shoot with the other. ”Nice shot”exclaims Jamie,as I managed to hit a really big pigeon. ”Just behind” says Jamie, as I miss the next shot. Jamie has worked as a bird boy many times. He has put a sticking plaster on his right thumb to prevent it from getting a blister. His job is to reload the shotguns, then finally to collect the birds shot. ”Would you like a cola?” Asks Jamie.

I am here with two other gentlemen, Göran and Leif. Both are good wing shooters. We arrived in Argentina yesterday. At the lodge we were greeted by the staff with hot towels and a glass of champagne.

I Pass the 800 Mark for Pigeons Shot

I’ve spent a bit of time on photography, so Leif is leading our competition with over 1,000 pigeons today. The local farmers are happy we are shooting the pigeons here. Although we all believe that we have never seen so many pigeons before, my bird boy Jamie is sorry that it has not been a really good day.

But we have enjoyed some fantastic days. At lunch time the staff laid the table under the open sky. We had grilled steaks and good Malbec-wine. After eating we take an hours siesta in our hammocks. When the days shooting is over, we return to the lodge, where we all enjoy a jacuzzi and massage to relive our sore shoulders.

After I return home to Sweden, I send an SMS to Leif. He was really pleased with his tour. On the last day of the trip he shot 2,200 pigeons. He plans to soon book another tour to Argentina for him and Göran. Next time they will also bring their wives with them.
