Argentina Dove HuntingUltimate Argentina Dove Hunting
Argentina Dove Hunting
Our Cordoba dove hunting operation boosts to be one of the best, if not the best in all of Argentina. With multiple beautiful lodges strategically placed to cover all seasons, we are never more then a 15-minute drive from as much shooting your body will withstand. From traditional agricultural field shoots to owning 1,200 acres in one of the largest roosts in the area, we give our clients the ability to “sleep under doves,” at certain times of the year. The service rendered by an extremely qualified staff coupled with gourmet foods, their own bottled wines and world-class wing shooting is a memory maker for sure!
This estancia is our newest hunting location. The region’s ideal climate consistently yields an abundance of grains, corn, milo, sorghum and wheat producing tremendous bird populations. Current estimates put the population at over 20 million birds, allowing for exceptional hunting year round. Outfitters are scarce in this area, which means more doves for you and your group! In 2009, we introduced a new operation. Over the past five years we have been scouting this area and learned that the farming conditions have resulted in a huge population of millions of doves. This easy access means no flight connections, saving you money and time. After arriving in you will be hunting the first afternoon – this wingshooter’s paradise is just a day’s travel from the U.S.
Nothing kills the excitement of a quality hunt more than worries about shooting too much due to the shell bill at the end of the hunt. We have designed an all inclusive package so you can enjoy shooting LOTS of shells with no thoughts about a huge shell bill at the end of the hunt. Our all inclusive dove hunting packages include everything so you won’t get hit with a barrage of charges when it’s time to head home!
We invite you to come and visit one of the finest wing shooting destinations on the planet, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Bringing a firearm to Argentina
We do not recommend bringing a firearm on your hunt but if you decide on it we will assist you. If you have never brought a firearm to Argentina in the past or it’s not a breach loading firearm, the process is pretty simple.
If the above does not apply, you will need to get approval by mail or in person appointment from the Argentina consulate closest to you.
Ammunition must be purchased on-site at $13.00 per box of 25 for dove and $15.00 per box for partridge, duck and goose. We ask our guests to clear the shell charges prior to their departure. Payment must be in the form of a personal check or cash – US Dollars are fine.
Common liquors, such as scotch, gin, rum or vodka are available. However, if there is special liquor you want (bourbon for example), please let us know in advance or buy it at the duty free store in Miami or the Buenos Aires Airport. Never drink the tap water in Argentina.
BIRDS FOR MOUNTING
Birds cannot be exported from Argentina in 2018
Cash and major credit cards are acceptable for purchases in most of the stores. At the Lodge we accept only cash or personal checks. It is a good idea to let your credit card companies know you will be traveling in case you need to use your credit cards. Check with your credit card company to make sure there are no fees to use your cards while in Argentina.
Cell phone service should be available in Buenos Aires and you can speak with your Gage Outdoor agent about WIFI or cell service at the lodge you will be visiting. Most estancias are equipped with WIFI service. Check with your service provider about data or cell usage packages in Argentina. Whatsapp is an app you can download on your phone to communicate with friends or family. They would need this app on their phone also. You can text, phone, and send photos and video for free.
Proceed to the baggage claim area to secure your luggage and follow the lines to clear customs. A Four Seasons staff member will be holding a sign with your name outside of customs – look in the area next to the McDonalds. If for some reason you do not see the Four Seasons representative wait in this area.
Voltage in Argentina is 220 volt, differing from the USA 110 Volt. You will need an adapter but most appliances or charges do not need converters. Adapters can easily be purchased in Buenos Aires if you do not get one in advance.

Spanish is the spoken language in Argentina. However, one of our bilingual hosts will accompany throughout your stay in Argentina. Please communicate any concerns during your trip to your host. He is there to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
Travelers clearing customs with medication are selectively stopped and referred to Federal Narcotics Agents for questioning. They must prove that the medication is what they claim it is and has been prescribed by a physician. Since this may cause undue delay and the possibility of missing connections, it is suggested that you make sure the container is labeled and has the prescription number from the pharmacist who supplied the prescription to you, plus the date, your name and the name of your prescribing physician.
U.S. citizens must have a passport that does not expire within 90 days of your return date to the USA. NEVER PACK YOUR PASSPORT IN YOUR LUGGAGE.
