You may find cheaper hunts, but you will never find better quality at the best price.
BestWingshooting.com offers All Inclusive hunts – In our spectacular wingshooting adventures we include everything - from your in country transportation, your three day or four day hunt, you accommodations, your chef prepared meals, your hunting licenses, your gun importation or gun rental if you prefer, all staff service charges, and 500 to 1000 shells, depending on the species. Hunters pay only the bird boy tips in cash to their ‘secretarios’ at the end of the hunt, and any additional shells beyond those included in the package.
A typical hunt itinerary begins with the client picking the dates they want to hunt, species to be hunted, and amount of time they want to spend. BestWingshooting.com has staff support to help with airfare and also additional days of sightseeing, touring, or even wine tasting. Once dates are set, flights are booked and deposits are invoiced. Deposits are non-refundable but may be applied to another hunt within one year. About 60 days ahead of arrival, final invoices are sent. Hunters are met at the airport by their outfitter and transported to the lodge, usually one hour to two hours maximum. Depending on flight arrival times, hunters can shower, rest, have lunch, and hunt the first afternoon.
What can I expect on a typical dove shoot?
Imagine this scene: wave after wave of doves, and you shooting with your bird boy loading shell after shell...all day long. We refer to it as a ‘target rich’ environment. That's wingshooting in Cordoba. Argentina is one of the most affordable and enjoyable dove shooting locations you'll ever visit.
Pigeon shoots add variety to the adventure.
Pigeon shooting often takes place over harvested peanut or corn fields. We use decoys for pigeons and also pigeon carousels, which mimic birds flying into the group to light. Because of BestWingshooting’s owner’s relationship with Terry Denmon of Mojo Outdoors, most of our outfitters have motion decoys for the pigeon (and duck) spreads. Afternoon pigeon shooting is a wonderful change to the volume shooting experience for those who want to add variety to their dove shooting adventure.
What's a typical day of hunting like in Argentina?
The Argentina asado, or barbecue as we call it, is a staple of lunch time dining in Argentina. Served at the lodge or in the field, a lunch of prime beef cuts, sausages, ribs, salads, and fine Malbec wines is always a favorite part of the day.
In the late afternoon, after returning to the lodge, fully satisfied and worn out from the volume shooting, hunters will enjoy dove brochettes or dove pate, homemade chips, homemade salami, Chilean olives, and your favorite beverage as you lounge by the pool or by the fire depending on the season you are there.
Enjoy a chef prepared three or four course evening meal, featuring Argentine grass-fed beef steaks, prime rib, tenderloins, or ribs as your main course. And at the end there is always a favorite Argentine dessert - perhaps Flan tonight, or Dulce De Leche over homemade ice cream, or fresh fruits with a custard sauce.
World class wingshooting for doves, pigeons, ducks or perdiz in Argentina; wonderful people; great accommodations; spectacular lodges - Argentina has it all. And Best Wingshooting uses the best lodges. No long drives for our customers. Hunters can often walk to the hunting area from their rooms, maybe 200 to 300 yards. If driving is required, you will be there in 5 to 20 minutes, not one hour.
“Know before you go”, and Best Wingshooting is your best source for no hassle, short distance, volume wingshooting - doves or pigeons - in Argentina.
Argentina has Legendary fields of Doves & Pigeons
Argentina boasts an unlimited number of doves, and pigeons and duck limits Americans can only dream of here. There is no place on earth for the wingshooter like Argentina. On a typical dove shooting afternoon, it is not unusual to shoot 1000, 1500, 2000 or more shells, depending on the time of year.
Most Americans are overwhelmed on their first trip as they cannot believe the numbers of Eared Doves in continuous flocks for hours on end, usually four hours. Besides doves, Argentina boasts two types of pigeons, the Spotted Wing pigeon, a more common variety found in large numbers in the wild, and the Picazura pigeon, a larger version of its cousin with colors more like those of a dove.
Both are acrobatic fliers that decoy readily for those who like that sport, but they also provide challenging, speedy targets in a pass shooting environment as well. Shooters should add a day or two of pigeon hunting to their itineraries once they have enjoyed a few of the volume days of the dove field.
An Argentina dove or pigeon hunt is one unforgettable experience due to the sheer volume! High volume bird hunting action, exquisite dining, and first-class accommodations in one all-inclusive price tag offered through BestWingshooting is the key.
We offer a variety of three day or four-day dove hunting packages in Argentina to fit your schedule and in different seasons. These can be combined with pigeon hunting or duck hunting, as a secondary shooting for either of these standalone hunts. Join us in Cordoba for the bird hunting experience of a lifetime.
Cordoba – Doves and Pigeons
Cordoba has been the standard for dove shooting in Argentina for a long time now. With direct flights from Miami twice a week, it has never been easier to schedule your three- or four-day trip to Cordoba for incredible dove shooting. BestWingshooting.com has the preferred outfitter there, who also offer dove shooting and spectacular pigeon shooting at a second lodge only two hours from the Cordoba airport. If you are looking for the best place – price, hunting, accommodations, food, wines, and service – BestWingshooting has the right outfitter for you.
Buenos Aires Province – Mixed Bag, Ducks, Perdiz, and Doves
Buenos Aires (BA) is reachable by direct flight from many major US cities, and now duck hunting, perdiz hunting, and dove shooting are all available within reasonable driving distances of the international airport. BestWingshooting has four lodges three to five hours from the airport, all of whom offer wonderful duck hunting, perdiz hunting over pointing dogs, and afternoon dove shooting to rival their sister province of Cordoba. Whether it’s world class cuisine, first class accommodations, or the genuine Argentine estancia experience, we can offer quality hunts to the most discriminating wingshooter. Spend an extra day or two in BA, the Paris of the South, for extraordinary shopping, dining, and entertainment.
Salta – Doves and Pigeons
Salta is the closest hunting destination to the US, but has been hampered for years because there were no direct flights there. Now there is a direct flight from Panama City, Panama, an easy destination from many major cities in the US. Spend three of four days shooting doves and or pigeons in virtually virgin territory with millions of birds, while staying at a first-class lodge with all the food, wines, and service one would expect from any world class location. We believe Salta will become the new ‘go to’ destination in Argentina over the next several years. Go now while it is everything you have ever wanted in Argentina wingshooting.
