PIGEON HUNTING

Our pigeon hunts take place in Santiago del Estero, one of the provinces in Argentina with the greatest population of pigeons. The fields are approximately twenty to forty-five minutes away from the lodge. The hunts take place in various grain fields and feed lots. There is a limit of 200 pigeons per hunter per day. We are constantly scouting the area to insure that every hunter has a successful hunt. Pigeons are hunted over decoys to maximize the opportunity of reaching one’s limit. The pigeon hunt typically starts around early mid-morning and runs until mid to late afternoon. Lunch is served in the field to increase hunting time since pigeons, unlike doves, are very unpredictable in their behavior. Each hunter is assigned a “bird boy” to tend to their needs while in the field.

TESTIMONIALS

Our Guests say

"I have been coming to Argentina for 30 years,and this is the best hunt we have ever had.  Three days of ducks , more than 140 per day, and pigeons well over 200 per man per day. 

I can highly recommend HP Wingshooting for a super well organized hunt."
