BEST WINGSHOOTING IN THE WORLD
HCU’s Scott Steinkruger made his way back to Argentina
to hunt with Manuel for his second consecutive year and will be making 2
more trips in 2014. Scott reports this as being the most fun and
relaxing hunt of his life and this time he enjoyed some fantastic duck
hunting along with the dove shoots. From the gourmet, yet hardy meals to
the absolutely beautiful ranch-style estancia accommodations, your every
need is attended to. Located in the mountains just 1 ½ hours from the
airport, the outfitter’s claim to fame “Sleep under the doves” is no
misnomer. 90 percent of the shoots are 2 to 15 minutes from the lodge.
What makes this hunt somewhat unique is the fact that mainly you are
hunting in the mountains, not on flat farmland. The views are majestic
and the hunting rivals the finest bird hunts anywhere in the world. Of
course, the numbers of birds you encounter are spellbinding.
During each shoot, you constantly have doves coming within
shotgun range. The mountain shooting posts are reminiscent of European
“driven” shoots, positioning hunters in the bird flyways. It is not
unusual to shoot 1000 rounds in a single shoot. Hunts are 3 nights, 6
hunt affairs with your first hunt coming on the first afternoon of your
arrival, then the next two days you hunt morning and afternoon, with the
final day, you will make a morning hunt then lunch and then back to the
airport for your flight home. Your day starts with a hearty breakfast
then you and your personal “bird boy” will be taken to your shoot.
Two to four hours of shooting, then back to the lodge for a
barbeque lunch, a siesta, and then out for the afternoon shoot. After
your afternoon shoot then it is back to the lodge for a cool drink and a
white glove supper. Of course, it’s your hunt and you can hunt as long,
or short, as you want. Your bird boy will have your ammunition as well
as ice cold drinks ready for you at all times. Bring your own shotgun or
rent their 20 gauge Berettas or Benellis at 70 dollars per day.
All transport in country, food, beer, wine and soft drinks is
included in our packages. Shotgun shells are $12.50 per
12, 20 or 28 gauge.
