The Hunting

Hunting season

Start: 27/04 End: 05/08

Our hunting days start early; usually at 5 a.m. Hunters depart the lodge in the dark, after a hearty breakfast made to order.

Drive times vary depending on water conditions and best locations, ranging from 10 to 50 minutes, after which hunters are positioned in the blinds and ready to hunt 10 to 15 minutes before shooting time.

Hunters will be hidden in traditional two-man surface blinds with a bird boy offering his assistance with hot and cold drinks, snacks and providing an extra set of eyes to alert you to incoming ducks. Electronic calls are furnished unless the hunters want to call themselves, something occasionally desired by accomplished callers on subsequent hunts where they have picked up the local duck “language.”

Hunters will return to the lodge in late morning for lunch and after a short siesta, depart at 3 p.m. for another shoot ending at dark. Then we enjoy an evening of camaraderie and a dinner that impresses!

Hunting Specs

Waterfowl season begins in April and ends in late July.

The weather is mild but can be cool in the mornings and evening. In Argentina, it is fall/winter at this time of the year and temperature range from 38 to 60ºF degrees. Sunny, pleasant days are the norm and ice and snow are very rare. Be aware that hunters are going to do some light wading during the hunts, so we strictly recommend chest waders.
