4 Days of Perdiz Hunt
Amazing, can you believe that?! We have a friend that came to hunt with us last July. We did Perdiz hunt during 4 days in a row, and we had a fantastic time. He reach his limits 90% of the times, and his bag was always full.
I had met david by phone, meanwhile I was walking in downtown Buenos Aires for some paper work. We have been on the phone for 20 minutes. The following day after he had read all our hunting info and material, and after watching some of the over 100 videos we have in our social media and webistes, he called me and requested dates to come to hunt with us.
I personally had the pleasure to shoot with David one great morning which was sunny and not very windy and we reach our limits in over an hour. Sergio was the guide and we hunted with Luna and Nube. Francisco was David's main guide and driver, and he took care of all details, he even prepared a couple of barbecues in the field for him.
David has enjoyed camaraderie as much as our great food and wine, and we hope he come back soon for some more amazing perdices. We are training new dogs for next 2016 season and he will love them.
What can we tell you about perdiz hunt?
The perdiz hunt could be compared to quail hunt in Georgia or Alabama, but these birds are normally in small groups of two. It requires a well trained dog, a professional guide with good skills to run the dog, and two shooters. The spotted Tinamou gets up with an explosive flash and flies in a straight line making it a very challenging shoot. This perdiz hunt is a unique sport shooting program, and no many people have the skills to get averages over 50% accuracy.
The Perdiz as it is known in Argentina is a partridge which lives in the abundant grass and his scientific name is: Tinamou. Argentina is home to 15 species of Perdiz, the most common of which is the Spotted Tinamou. The tinamous are one of the most ancient groups of bird. Although they look similar to other ground-dwelling birds like quail and grouse, they have no close relatives and are classified as a single family Tinamidae within their own order, the Tinamiformes.
We hope you have enjoyed this short hunting report, but please read below our friend's feedback about perdiz hunting with Pointer Outfitters.
I am writing to provide you with my overall impression of your lodge.
Overall, the experience was fantastic and I enjoyed my stay very much. I appreciated the commitment that you and your staff have to your guests and their satisfaction. One of the best aspects of my stay was the ability to try new activities including duck hunting and Dorado fishing. As you know, few lodges provide such a range of sporting activities.
Your staff is first rate; they are professional, attentive, competent and peasant. Francisco, Ricardo and Federico stood out as particularly professional and helpful.
Sergio is an excellent guide and his dogs are very well trained. Sergio and I were able to communicate effectively with my very limited Spanish. However, for hunters who have absolutely no Spanish language ability, cue cards may be helpful. I imagine that most hunting guides say the same 25 phrases/questions over and over to all of their hunters. But, please no misunderstand me, it was great and we had communicated ok with Sergio.
You have a fantastic lodge for sportsmen, and that is very valuable. It is a place where sportsmen can relax and have fun, and a lodge cannot be all things to all people.
It is would be amazing the Instruction classes for both shooting and fishing that we have been talking, This could help sportsman to convince their wives to come, and may facilitate new clients for the future.
The silver pidgin I used was excellent. Maintaining good quality shotguns is essential. The IC/Full combination in my shotgun was fine and worked well
Thanks again for a very memorable experience.
