DESTINATION #1 – ARGENTINA

Destination Overview:

The Ultimate Waterfowl Challenge is proud to partner with this proven Argentine wing shooting outfitter. They are located just 4.5 hours from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The area is a UWC premier destination and our top choice when it comes to value. The area reminds us of the famous prairie pothole regions of Canada. There are thousands of acres of grain fields within a 45 minute drive of the hunting lodge. Amongst the grain fields are large lakes, small fertile ponds, and freshwater creeks. All three of these bodies of water can be very productive.

The Hunt:

Hunting with this premier Argentina duck hunting outfitter should be on every waterfowlers bucket-list. The team is tireless when it comes to scouting the very best lakes, marshes and creeks. When hunting with this team you will have an opportunity to take multiple species of ducks. This is one of the best areas for Southern Widgeon. This is the favorite duck of many hunters heading to Argentina duck hunt- ing. Not every hunting destinations has the southern widgeon, here you will find it commonplace to see several each hunt! Other species include: white-cheeked pintail, yellow-billed pintail, cinnamon teal, speckled teal, ring-billed teal, Brazilian teal, shoveler, and two species of tree ducks. A pinnacle that many hunters reach year after year! Put Argentina duck hunting on your bucket-list.

    Accommodations and Cuisine:

    The Estancia is an Oasis located in the heart of the prairie pothole region of Argentina. The Estancia is new enough to have all of the modern conveniences of any first-class hunting lodge. For three years our outfitting partner combed the region looking for a place that hunters would enjoy nearly as much as the hunting. The Estancia is a working ranch with cattle, crops, and over 50 horses. It is set among a majestic forest that will make you want to spend your evening watching the sunset from one of the outside porches. To maximize your enjoyment we prefer to take a group of four to six hunters. This keeps our hunts very personal! In fact you will be hunting with the owners of the outfitting operation.

    Dining at La Quebrada is always an event, and menus feature a variety of Argentina’s famous beef, international cuisine, and well-seasoned recipes of wild game as ducks, perdiz, hares, wild boar, deer…all these accompanied by a fine selection of best Argentinian wines.

    A group of four you will have your own private rooms. Most have newly updated en-suite bathrooms. Often this luxury comes at a premium. Our team thinks your comfort is their priority!

    Additional Species to Hunt

    UWC guests at our Argentina operation will not only experience amazing waterfowl hunting you will get to hunt doves and perdiz as well.

    Perdiz

    Perdiz are a small partridge type bird similar to a quail or Hungarian partridge. Perdiz habitat consists of large fields and brushy fence rows. Unlike quail and Hungarian partridge, perdiz are normally found in singles or pairs rather than coveys. Upland hunters will enjoy hunting perdiz over our trained pointers as they hold well for the pointers and are extremely fast after flushing. Don’t be surprised if you miss the first couple of shots!

    We typically hunt perdiz in the afternoon, following the morning duck hunt, a siesta, and an Argentine-style lunch. Hunters enjoy the cool afternoons walking the fields, watching the dogs work and shooting

    Doves

    Doves are really the species that made Argentina famous for wingshooting. Hunters travel from all over the World to experience the amazing numbers of doves that populate Argentina. Regions like Cordoba and Salta literally have millions of doves! Unfortunately, those regions do not offer ducks or perdiz.

    RECOMMENDED GEAR:

    • Shooting safety glasses—yellow for dark days, dark for sun
    • Ear Protection
    • Camouflage hunting hat
    • Upland hunting field boots for perdiz hunting
    • Orange vest for perdiz hunting
    • Shooting gloves
    • Headlamp or small flashlight
    • Camouflage waterfowl hunting jacket
    • Copy of passport
    • Toiletry and prescription drugs
    • Lightweight hip boots or waist-high waders. If you have questions on this please call your consultant.
    • Multi-tool
    • Small field bag
    • Light long underwear
    • Hunting socks
    • Camera with a waterproof case or Ziploc bags
    • Go Pro

    ADDITIONAL:

    In regards to field, clothing weather varies greatly so we recommend you dress in layers. You can bring a lightweight set of polypropylene long underwear, a layer of fleece or wool, and finally an outer shell with a gore-tex (waterproof) material. A camo pattern that works great in our area is Shadow Grass or something similar.

    What works great for dove hunting is bringing a shell holder that attaches to your belt. The ones that hold 25-50 rounds are perfect.
