Cordoba is considered one of the pigeon shooting capitals of the world. The 50 square mile radius (80 km) around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 5 million pigeons. The lodge enjoys around 20 shooting fields all within a scenic drive through the region.
Pigeons are large and fast, which makes calculating speed a little bit deceptive. They work excellently with decoys and we ensure one freshly built blind per hunter. Decoys are strategically deployed around the blinds and at a suitable distance. Staying hidden and still in a good blind is the key to success.
The program generally starts at 8:00 AM with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to the shoot. In the field you will be assigned a bird-boy, who will provide you with shot shellsand refreshments, direct you to your shooting stand and help you load your gun. They areequipped with radios for easy fast communication and can solve problems rapidly.
Depending on the time of the year, you will shoot until noon when you will be treated to an incredible traditional barbeque lunch in the field or at the lodge, tasting some of Argentina’s wonderful beef and exquisite wine. Afternoon begins at around 2 or 2.30, and continues until 5 or 6 when you will return to the lodge for cocktails at the wine cellar and early dinner.
