LA LOMA LODGE - Dove Hunting

This Lodge is ideal for Families, Groups of Friends, or for a Company Trip with Exclusive Customers

Perfectly situated between the two most prized dove roosts in Cordoba, the La Loma experience offers superb shooting year-round. It is a 60-minute drive from the airport; close to Totoral City on national road number 9.

This Famous Argentine Estancia has been renovated in 2014 and it is now one of the most requested destinations for Dove Hunting in Northern Cordoba. An excellent private lodge providing superior service.

La Loma is a beautiful traditional Estancia built-in 1908 by one of the wealthiest families in Argentina. The lodge is located about one hour north of Cordoba International Airport in the town of Totoral. Situated next to the biggest dove roost in Argentina, the rides to the fields are convenient 10 to 40 minutes. La Loma’s staff, the delicious Argentine meals, as well as copious amounts of doves, combine to make this a very memorable dove-shooting trip.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Species: Eared Dove

Season: All year-round.

Capacity: A Maximum of 12 people in double/single bedroom accommodations.

ACCOMMODATIONS

We believe that your experience at the lodge is just as important as your experience hunting or fishing. Our team goes to great lengths when you are with us to ensure you have the best vacation possible.

Our Lodges are primarily Argentine Estancias built by the Cattle Barons of the Early 20th Century. They were built with luxury and relaxation as the main goal.

After an exciting day in the field or on the water, you will be met by our staff and treated as if you were the Cattle Baron of yesteryear. Cold drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a relaxing fire allow you to unwind from the glorious day afield and once you are thoroughly relaxed you will be called to the table and served a meal prepared by some of the finest chefs in Argentina.

Many of our clients say that hunting and fishing bring them to Argentina but that our lodges and staff bring them back to us.

The Lodge perfectly blends the charm of “old-world” Argentina with contemporary luxury and offers 4-star amenities seldom found at hunting lodges. The Lodge sits on an immaculately kept traditional estancia. This Estancia has been in use as a hunting lodge for more than twenty years and has built an amazing reputation for the comfortable rooms and the elaborate traditional living room.

The house, which has eight bedrooms and a capacity for 12 hunters, has recently been refurbished making it very comfortable and appealing.

The lodge has nine well-appointed suites. There are five single suite rooms and three double-occupancy suites. There are 4 rooms with private bathrooms and 4 bedrooms sharing bathrooms as private apartments. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning or a ceiling fan.

Quiet, comfortable, and cozy!


CUISINE

Enjoy our gourmet and traditional cuisine every night after your hunt; our professional chef will delight you with amazing Argentinean and international dishes. We will have special appetizers available as well as drinks before dinner. You have to experience our special goat or lamb “a la Cruz”; which is a local specialty and uniquely prepared. Normally it takes more than three hours on the fire to get it tender and phenomenally tasty!

THE FIELDS

In the North of Córdoba, we will shoot in the hills 70% of the time. This is a dry area with rocks and rolling hills. It is packed with waist-high thorny bushes that make the terrain tough, but not impossible, to maneuver through. The remaining 30% of the time we shoot in the flatlands. The terrain in the flatlands consists of farm fields with crops or low-cut grass.

Birds normally leave the roosting area during the first light of the day. They fly forty to sixty miles on average for food. The fields that comprise our shooting options, depending on the time of the year, are:

  1. Shooting in the “flyways”: This means between the roosting area and the feeding field.

  2. The fields: fields where crops were harvested, such as soybean, corn, or sorghum (especially from March to May).

  3. Feedlots: Birds that feed at the feedlots are great shooting options for some months of the year (March to July).

  4. Water holes: Especially in the Summertime, water holes constitute great shooting options (October to April).

  5. Roosting areas: when birds leave the main roosting area and stay in temporary roosting fields, we have the option of shooting them there without affecting their main roosting place. During a hatch, you will see them flying in both directions.

THE HUNTING

Our dove shooting program starts early in the morning with a complete breakfast, which provides fruit, cereal, toast, coffee, and eggs prepared according to your preferences. Your guide/host will arrive for breakfast and will talk to you about the hunting location, the guns, and the shells that will be used in the field that day. He will also give a safety speech on the first day of your hunt and will assist you in acquiring any/all accessories you could need. Around 8:00 am – 8:30 am, you will depart with your group to the field. Depending on location, it can be anywhere from a twenty-minute to a forty-minute car ride.

At your arrival, the field staff will be ready to take you immediately to your shooting blind. It will be an estimated three hours of shooting before lunchtime. The head guide will be available to assist and coach you if you so desire. Each guide is an experienced and qualified shot. They will be able to provide you with special coaching and tips to improve your accuracy.

At our daily location, we will set up a tent and prepare the famous Argentinean barbecue. You will immensely enjoy the cuts of meat prepared, accompanied by our well-known Malbec wines. After a great meal, depending on the time of the year, we will set hammocks to relax before the afternoon hunt begins. In the evening, when everybody has finished shooting, we will return to the lodge for appetizers and drinks.

The personal field assistants are in their thirties and most of them have been working in the field for many years; this becomes apparent when you see them shooting. They work hard every day preparing your blind, carrying shells, shotguns, drinks, and stools to your spot. They are also responsible for cleaning the field and picking up all shells expended.

*Schedules can change depending on the time of year.

FIELD ASSISTANT AND GUIDES

They are well known in the dove hunting world as bird boys, but we call them to field assistants because at Pointer Outfitters we understand that they are the key to success for the best experience ever for all our hunters.

Over the years, all our field assistants have perfected the level of professionalism and are the best in taking care and handling all details for our guests, from the moment they arrive at the field till it is time to get back to our premium lodges.
