Rock and Dove

We’re always excited to take groups of friends hunting! And let me tell you, we had a blast with this group and it felt like we were hunting with longtime friends! We can’t wait to see them again!


Aaron, Richmond, and Brandon from Houston and Alabama visited us last May and stayed at our amazing La Loma Lodge and not only did they enjoy the hunt but plenty of non-hunting activities as well. It was their first time in Argentina and I’m sure it won’t be their last!

 

They did a city tour in Cordoba city where they got to know our rich history and visited plenty landmarks such as the Capuchinos Church and the Jesuit Square, and ended an awesome day doing some bowling and having drinks. The cherry on the top to end up a great city tour! We all had so much fun touring the city with them. You can check out more about the city here with our Travel and Leisure department to make the most out of your trip!

 

And all the fun was just getting started. At the field, we joked around to last us till the next visit. I remember putting flowers all over Richmond’s beard decorating it... We couldn’t stop laughing!! Richmond is a crazy funny guy… There wasn’t a serious face around him, everyone was laughing 24/7. 

 

The hunts were mostly held in fields at a 15-minutes drive from the lodge where doves were plentiful. We coached them a bit to improve their aim: giving them pointers on how to position their shoulder, try not to shoot above the dove and how to follow its flight trajectory to make it an easier shot. I was really impressed by how quick on the uptake the three of them were! Putting our tips to good use, their aim improved a 40% in just one day, that’s a lot considering it was their first time hunting!

 

They also enjoyed a great deal the lunches at the field where they tried our most typical ritual: the Asado! Made up of tenderloin, chicken, sausages, veggie skewers plus different types of local beers as well as some delicious Malbec wine with multiple salads. 

 

Another great anecdote that I could never forget was on their second hunting day, Aaron and Richmond spotted a pigsty and started talking about taming it. And this is where it gets crazy funny! They actually entered that pigsty! At first, they tried to give him food to gain the pig’s trust and grab it… This has to be the most hilarious scene I’ve ever seen! As soon as they tried to grab the pig, it started running of course. But these guys weren’t about to quit that easily! So they started chasing the pig through the entire pen! I can’t even start to describe what they looked when finally they left the pig alone and got out of the pigsty. We were all laughing and holding our sides the whole way back to the lodge!

 

One night we got to take them to a local bar to taste some drafted local beers since they were big beer enthusiasts! And it was our pleasure to make it happen… So, after dinner, we picked them up at the lodge and drove to one of Jesus Maria’s pubs where we had some beers, played darts and did some karaoke followed by amazing local food! 

 

All in all, we had so much fun with them! Both hunting and hanging out, getting to show them our culture and history. We can’t wait to see our dearest friends again! Hopefully, next year we’ll get the chance…

 

And you, what are you waiting to have such a great time?

 

You should be the next one!
