Hunting Like Never Before
In Argentina, doves are year-round residents. The mildness of our winters combined with a supply of food from various fields sustain them, so the volume of birds is great during the cold season.
We received John’s group at the beginning of winter. He was joined by his 17-year-old son Joshua, his dad Warren, and his best friend, Bill. They happened to meet Dale and James and their wives, Teresa and Melissa, who were staying at the same lodge during those dates.
During their hunting days, they woke up and got out early every morning. They hunted in the lowlands, in the area of Jesús María. When they got to the field, at aroung 7.45 in the morning, it was still dark, which was a good sign because they caught the flight of doves from their loft and dawn. During their stay, they always got surprised to see so many birds!
At lunchtime, they made the most of time to relax and get some rest. Both groups hunted and had lunch together at camp all four days. They got along very well, chatting away happily about what a good time they were having! They always got a 45-minutes nap in the hammocks before the afternoon hunt.
John was willing to be a part of the 1000 doves club, whereas Dale and James took it easy and enjoyed hunting with their wives. At the end of the day, they always enjoyed a few drinks before heading back to the lodge.
Both groups stayed at La Loma lodge, a beautiful estancia built in 1908 located between the two most prized dove roost in Córdoba.
