Argentina is considered a dream for water fowlers. One of the best options offered is the Parana River wetlands, specifically in Santa Fe province, one of the longest rivers in the world, surrounded by thousands of little islands that are just the right place for duck breeding. Pilaga Island is also very famous for the amazing number of ducks and variety of species that come every year.
The 50 square mile radius (129 km2) around the shooting area form one of the most amazing duck shooting reserves. In the northern area of the lodge, about 60 miles away, there are a couple of great roosting areas for doves, and the fields covered with natural grass have a great population of Perdiz. Our location is annually inhabited by over fifteen million ducks during the season. People and outfitters talk about a population of twenty million doves. Our Company counts on thirty different shooting fields throughout the entire region.
The flat lands of Buenos Aires have a dream depression full of lagoons and ponds and small rivers and flooded areas that are just amazing for duck breeding. In This unique area we run our amazing Las Rosas Lodge, with the largest number of lagoons and ponds to be hunted. We have seen some of the best hunting days in this lodge and we expect many more hunters will have the pleasure to enjoy it. Just one hour and few more minutes away from the international airport paradise will be waiting for water fowlers.
Buenos Aires: You will be able to shoot the largest number of lagoons in Buenos Aires province with the #1 Outfitter. They are mostly ponds and large lagoons.
Santa Fe: The duck shooting fields are located around islands, near lagoons and rivers, in San Javier. The place looks like a big marshland. In order to access this area, we utilize boats with power engines. The wildlife is amazing and the rivers/islands change color and form frequently. When shall we welcome you to paradise?
They are well known in the duck hunting world as bird boys, but we call them field assistants because at Pointer Outfitters we understand that they are the key to the best experience ever for all our hunters.
Over the years, all our field assistants have perfected the level of professionalism and are the best in taking care and handling all details for our guests, from the moment they arrive at the field till it is time to get back to our premium lodges.
They are always ready to jump on their waders and take you hunting.
The personal field assistants are in their thirties and most of them have been working in the wetlands for many years; this becomes apparent when you see them exploring the area while you hunt. They work hard every day preparing your blind, carrying shells, shotguns, drinks, and stools to your blind. They are also responsible for cleaning the field and picking up all shells expended.
People make the difference, and we are proud of the people working with us, from the amazing service to the skills they bring every day to the field. Be ready for some of the best royal treatment.
We run the largest bird hunting operation in Argentina and we own the largest collection of Beretta & Benelli shotguns!
Hunting and target shooting are among the safest of all sports. This short note is intended to make them even safer by emphasizing the basics of safe gun handling, storage, and by reminding you that you are the key to firearms safety.
Always Keep The Muzzle Pointed In A Safe Direction
Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to shoot. This is particularly important when loading or unloading a firearm. In the event of an accidental discharge, no injury can occur as long as the muzzle is pointing in a safe direction.
Firearms Should Be Unloaded When Not Actually In Use
Unload your gun as soon as you are finished. A loaded gun has no place in or near a car, truck, or building. Unload your gun immediately when you have finished shooting.
Do Not Rely On Your Guns Safety
The safety on any gun is a mechanical device, which, like any such device, can become inoperable at the worst possible time. You should never handle a gun carelessly and assume that the gun won't fire just because the safety is on.
Be Sure Of Your Target And What is Beyond It
Do not shoot unless you know exactly what your shot is going to strike. Be sure that your bullet will not injure anyone or anything beyond your target. Firing at a movement or a noise without being absolutely certain of what you are shooting at constitutes disregard for the safety of others.
Use Correct Ammunition
Using improper or incorrect ammunition can destroy a gun and cause serious personal injury. It only takes one cartridge of improper caliber or gauge to wreck your gun, and only a second to check each one as you load it. Be absolutely certain that the ammunition you are using matches the specifications that are contained within the gun’s instruction manual and the manufacturer markings on the firearm. Be aware not to use smaller ammunition in the gun you are using, this could cause a major accident.
If Your Gun Fails To Fire When The Trigger Is Pulled, Handle With Care!
Occasionally, a cartridge may not fire when the trigger is pulled. If this occurs, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Keep your face away from the breech. Then, carefully open the action, unload the firearm and dispose of the cartridge in a safe way.
Always Wear Eye And Ear Protection When Shooting
All shooters should wear protective shooting glasses and some form of hearing protection while shooting. Exposure to shooting noise can damage hearing. Adequate vision protection is essential. Shooting glasses guard against twigs, falling shot, clay target chips, and the rare ruptured case of firearm malfunction.
Be Sure The Barrel Is Clear Of Obstructions Before Shooting
Before you load your firearm, open the action and be certain that no ammunition is in the chamber or magazine. Be sure the barrel is clear of any obstruction. Even a small bit of mud, snow, excess lubricating oil, or grease in the bore can cause dangerously increased pressures. This can cause the barrel to bulge or even burst on firing, which can cause injury to the shooter and bystanders.
Do Not Alter Or Modify Your Gun, And Have Guns Serviced Regularly
Firearms are complicated mechanisms that are designed by experts to function properly in their original condition. Any alteration or change made to a firearm after manufacture can make the gun dangerous and will usually void any factory warranties.
Learn The Mechanical And Handling Characteristics Of The Firearm You Are Using
Not all firearms are the same. The method of carrying and handling firearms varies in accordance with the mechanical characteristics of each gun. Since guns can be so different, never handle any firearm without first having thoroughly familiarized yourself with the particular type of firearm you are using, the safe gun handling rules for loading, unloading, carrying and handling that firearm, and the rules of safe gun handling in general.
We re the # 1 Outfitter in Argentina and we are the first one to start a conservation program and a non profit called MAKING CHANGES NOW with the specific purpose to study, count and protect specific wetlands for ducks. We started in 2019 with the Biologist Juan Seco Pon doing research in Buenos Aires province and we are ready to catch up with a larger project next year. For more info, please go to makingchangesnow.org.
We are the #1 Outfitter, because we support the largest number of NPOsthat do conservation in the US, such as DW, DU, CCA and many more. We have learned to think in the long term, and we all understand how important conservation is in our bird game.
