Argentina, Santiago Del Estero

Imagine an area the size of California dotted with marshes, agricultural activity and a steady supply of water brought by rain, rivers and streams from the high Andes to the northwest. It is a combination of Everglades and the Mississippi delta. A wingshooting paradise and best of all no other hunter in sight! Liberal limits, no steel shots and no plugs complete the wonderful reality of having arrived to shooting Nirvana. Imagine bagging in a few days what you shoot in a whole season back home. Our entire wing shooting is done in the best part of Argentina. This is the north central portion of the country. This area comprises the provinces of Santa Fe, Chaco and Santiago del Estero. We have 3 main lodges about 100 miles from Resistencia, Santiago del Estero or Corrientes airports. With this kind of infrastructure and daily jet service from Buenos Aires you can avoid the expensive alternative of charter planes. Ducks, Doves, Pigeon and perdiz, all within driving distance of each other. In our Santiago lodge a mixed bag can be done This is the very best value return for your trip investment in particular for those who have limited time away from home and our great price makes it even more attractive. The area is spread between the Provinces of Santa Fe and Santiago del Estero. This area is full of marshes surrounded by all kind of crops. The limit for duck is 25 a day per hunter, so if you have say 4 days of duck hunting you have a total of 100 birds regardless of how many you shoot in one day. The accommodation at the Estancia house or ranch house is very well appointed and just remodeled. It is between 30 and 60 minutes from the different shooting areas. The most common activity is duck in the morning and dove, pigeon and an occasional perdiz in the afternoon (arrangements can be made for a duck/ duck day). This is because you usually reach your duck limit in the morning. Through the season there are more than 10 different duck species available at one time or another. Unlike Córdoba and other provinces, here doves and pigeons coexist in the same area. Usually they are hunted together. In addition, it’ s possible to hunt three varieties of Perdiz: the small (inambúe), the montaraz and the copetona. May to Sept.
