At Pointer Outfitters we believe that your experience at the lodge is just as important as your experience hunting or fishing. Our team goes to great lengths when you are with us to ensure you have the best vacation possible
Our Lodges are primarily Argentine Estancias built by the Cattle Barons of the Early 20th Century. They were built with luxury and relaxation as the main goal.
After an exciting day in the field or on the water, you will be met by our staff and treated as if you were the Cattle Baron of yesteryear. Cold drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a relaxing fire allow you to unwind from the glorious day afield and once you are thoroughly relaxed you will be called to the table and served a meal prepared by some of the finest chefs in Argentina.
Many of our clients say that the hunting and fishing bring them to Argentina but that our lodges and staff bring them back to Pointer Outfitters.
YOU SHOULD BE THE NEXT ONE
This is a traditional lodge with a relaxing natural garden to set the mood for a spectacular stay in Argentina. It combines classical and modern style in a perfect union but still harmonizing with the beautiful setting. The house has a spanish style and had been remodeled for being an amazing lodge
The house, which has 3 spacious bedrooms and a capacity for 6 people, has a cozy feel to it and an atmosphere to help put your feet up and unwind after a fun day of shooting.
As you can appreciate in the pictures below, we have designed each and every room in the Lodge to be an individual expression of design, while maintaining a typical Argentine style
Enjoy our gourmet and traditional cuisine every night after your hunt; our professional chef will delight you with amazing Argentinean and international dishes. We will have special appetizers available as well as drinks before dinner. You have to experience our special goat or lamb “a la cruz”; which is a local specialty and uniquely prepared. Normally it takes more than three hours on the fire to get it tender and phenomenally tasty!
Our dove shooting program starts early in the morning with a complete breakfast, which provides fruit, cereal, toast, coffee, and eggs prepared according to your preferences. Your guide/host will arrive for breakfast and will talk to you about the hunting location, the guns, and the shells that will be used in the field that day. He will also give a safety speech on the first day of your hunt and will assist you in acquiring any/all accessories you could need. Around 8:00 am – 8:30 am, you will depart with your group to the field. Depending on location, it can be anywhere from a twenty-minute to a forty-minute car ride.
At your arrival, the field staff will be ready to take you immediately to your shooting blind. It will be an estimated three hours of shooting before lunchtime. The head guide will be available to assist and coach you if you so desire. Each guide is an experienced and qualified shot. They will be able to provide you with special coaching and tips to improve your accuracy.
The personal field assistants are in their thirties and most of them have been working in the field for many years; this becomes apparent when you see them shooting. They work hard every day preparing your blind, carrying shells, shotguns, drinks, and stools to your spot. They are also responsible for cleaning the field and picking up all shells expended.
*Schedules can change depending on the time of year.
Shooting Clothes – Hunting shirts which are shades of green and brown are recommended. Camouflage clothing is optional. The weather is typically cool in the morning and evening, so packing a light sweater or jacket wouldn’t hurt. Hopefully, the weather will be exceptional while you’re here, however it rains quite often so bringing a rain jacket is a necessity.
Ankle High Boots/Shoes – Lightweight, ankle-high boots/shoes work exceptionally well. A Gore-Tex breathing shoe, like the Rocky Boot, would be an excellent choice. There are quite a few thorny plants where you will be hunting. Keep this in mind when deciding on what footwear to bring.
Safety Glasses – Your glasses should serve a dual purpose; protection from the sun and any debris that might fall from above. The green or yellow protective glasses that can be worn over regular glasses are optimal. They have a small side panel which protects against glare. You will be able to find them in most hunting/fishing supply stores.
Ear Protection - This is perhaps the most important item on this list. The average hunter shooting dove here will shoot their gun anywhere from 500 – 3000 times a day. There are numerous varieties of ear protection on the market. You should look for comfort, fit, and sound deafening components.
Lightweight Hat – A personalized hunting cap will be provided although we also recommend bringing a wide-brimmed hat for better protection.
Shooting Gloves – the volume of shooting is immense. You will need to protect your hands from the hot shotgun barrels, as well as any brush traversed through. Having gloves will also reduce the likelihood of nicks and blisters from reloading, breaking your gun(s) and activating safeties. Golf or batting gloves are a good substitute if you cannot find quality, sensitive leather shooting gloves.
Shoulder Pad – We highly recommend the Caldwell Field Shield. It is ambidextrous for ease of use for all shooters. The 1/4-Inch thick energy-absorbing pad provides excellent protection for all shotguns.
Small Field Bag – A small bag/backpack would be a good idea if you desire to bring any personal items to the field. A camera for example.
Insect Repellant/Sunscreen – During our spring and summer season (September to March), bug repellant will keep those bothersome pests from driving you crazy. Sunscreen is a necessity. Our blinds are set up daily, depending on where the birds are flying. So you might be in the sun or in the shade.
Camera - The area you will be hunting is exceptionally beautiful. We also offer a private service by a professional photographer. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Evening Dress- Clothing is casual. Slacks and sports shirts are all you need.
Band-Aids/Tape/Medicinal cream - We have first aid kits in the field in case of an emergency, however, it’s a good idea to bring your own medical supplies (antihistamine cream for bug bites, Neosporin for cuts, etc)
