Argentina has for many years been known as the world's leading wing shooting destination. We can offer a combination hunt for ducks, partridges, doves and pigeons, which must be said to be a totally unique and complete hunting experience. We are also offering some amazing fishing on the Parana River.
5 days from $6,495
As something quite extraordinary, our partner in Argentina now offers a "Mixed bag program", which combines different hunting experiences with fishing. Here you can hunt the lightning-fast pigeons and ducks, as well as you can fish in the unique Parana river.
When shooting pigeons the only limit is your desire to shoot. At the same time, there are also some excellent opportunities for duck hunting in the large wetlands of the region and along the Parana River.
There is something magical about Argentine duck hunting and their many brightly colored duck species. Typically, the hunt takes place in the morning, where you leave the accommodation early in the morning and head out to the hunting area, where upon arrival your guide quickly constructs a hide and lays out decoys. At dawn, you can begin to hear the ducks' wings beating in the air. Just seeing the sunrise and ducks flying over the decoys is worth the trip! In Argentina, there are quotas on ducks and it is permitted to shoot 20 ducks per hunter/day.
In addition to pigeon and duck hunting, partridge hunts are also offered with pointing dogs. Also here, there is a quota on how many birds you can shoot per day. In this region, the quota is 8 partridges per hunter/day, or max 50 shots)
As an added bonus to the many hunting opportunities, Argentina also offers some fantastic fishing. The Parana River offers the world's best freshwater fishing after the "Golden Dorado", which really offers some entertaining fishing. There is fishing from the bank or from boats along the Parana river and it is possible to fly or spin fish according to taste and preference. If you really want serious action, "Golden Dorado" is a fish that is really up for a good fight.
