General Information

Species: Eared Dove.

Season: All year round.

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, you will be treated by our staff as if you were the Cattle Baron of yesteryear. Cold drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a relaxing fire will 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 our lodges and staff bring them back to Pointer Outfitters.

Accommodation

The main house offers the following facilities:


ABOUT THE LODGE

This is a traditional lodge with a relaxing natural garden to set the mood for a spectacular stay in Argentina. It combines classic and modern style in a perfect union, but still harmonizing with the beautiful setting. The house has a Spanish style and has been remodeled to become an amazing lodge. 

The house, which has 5 spacious bedrooms and a capacity for 10 people, has a cozy feel to it and an atmosphere that will make you want to 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.

Cuisine

Enjoy our gourmet and traditional cuisine every night after your hunt; our professional chef will delight you with amazing Argentine and international dishes. We 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, uniquely prepared. Normally it takes more than three hours on the fire to get it tender and phenomenally tasty!

The Fields

Doves live near big feedlots we can find in the north of Córdoba, San Luis or Tucumán, as these provinces have big cattle ranches. Weather conditions and water increases the development of their nesting areas.

The fields that comprise our shooting options, depending on the time of the year, are: 

1)  Shooting in the “Flyways”: This means between the roosting area and the feeding field. 

2) The fields and feedlots: Anta Valley produces incredible amounts of wheat, sorghum, soybeans, corn and peanuts, so there is never a shortage of food for the doves and pigeons. Birds which feed at the feedlots are great shooting options for some months of the year. 

3) Roosting areas: When birds leave the main roosting area and stay in temporary roosting fields, we have the option of shooting them there without affecting their main roosting place. 

The Hunting

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 tell 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 to the field with your group. Depending on the location, the car ride can be between twenty minutes and forty minutes long.

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 you if you 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 to prepare your blind, carry the 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.

Gun Rental

Most of our guns are semi-automatic Benelli Montefeltro 20 gauge and Beretta Urika 391 20 gauge. 

We have Benelli Montefeltro, Benelli M1 Black, Beretta Urika 391, Beretta A400 and Beretta A300. 

We have Beretta silver pigeons 20 Gauge over and under. We also have a couple of Beretta silver pigeons 28 Gauge over and under and a couple of Browning 525 410 gauge for rental. Check for rental pricing on this guns.

They are all use guns like in all companies, because of the big volume of shooting in Cordoba. That is why for a better service to our guest, our policy is to work with 2 shotguns per person per blind, so if you have jammings or miss fires, your filed assistant will be able to change your gun, and take the other one to camp for a check or a cleaning. We would like you to understand that we work really hard to provide a great hunting service, but sometimes, shells could be working wrong or even a gun can get ammunition and get stacked, or a spring could be broken, or the fire pin could be broken. 

Your field assistant will be taking good care of you on the blind and if by any reason your gun needs to be replaced, he will contact the head guide in the field personally or by radio to be sure you have a great hunting experience.

Regarding chokes, we have mostly modify and IC, so please be sure to have your special chokes if you are planning to have something different, or be sure to let us know about your special request before your hunting trip.
