Game Description
Major Game Animals Taken:Dove; Duck; Perdiz; Pigeon
Game Sought But Not Taken:; ; ;
Game Conditions Comments:Doves are everywhere. There's hardly a moment that you don't see doves in the air. 20-bird limits on ducks are quickly filled. 8-bird limits on perdiz are quickly filled (and a lot of fun). Pigeons are not as common as doves, but they decoy very well.

Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:None
Highlights of Hunt:Innumerable doves. Plentiful and varied ducks. Sporty perdiz(along with good dog work). Pigeons over decoys. Great fishing too for golden dorado.
Equipment Recommendations:Do not bother bringing your own shotgun. They have top-notch Berettas (both over-under and semis) for hire for cheap, and it saves you the hassle of importation and wear-and-tear on your own firearms. Go with 20 gauge; your shoulder will thank you. Bring hearing protection and some type of recoil pad. Firing 3,000+ rounds per day is possible!
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend?yes
Why?If you are a wingshooter, you owe it to yourself to experience what Argentina has to offer. The Cordoba region of Argentina is more well-known and may have a few more doves (or at least more concentrated), but the type of mixed-bag hunt I experienced is just not available in the Cordoba region of Argentina. And I could walk to my dove field, so no long drives in a crowded van!
