The size of the local pigeon population in the Entre Rios province has exploded in recent years because of improved farm production. On a pigeon shoot here in Entre Ros, the only limit is your own desire to keep shooting!

They are renown for both their high level of service and the excellent shooting and fishing they provide.

Additionally they offer fantastic accommodation, which helps to make this wonderful tour complete. Argentina’s Best Hunting can therefore offer our customers some of the very best hunting and fishing tours that Argentina has to offer.

The Hunting

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.

Hunting Season

(Best period January - April)

Hunting stories


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.
