CUISINE

Our menu was designed to include the most popular meals that are normally requested in any country restaurant. We wish to delight our guests with one unique meal every evening. We also serve special appetizers before dinner in the evenings. We are stocked to capacity with duck, perdiz, and dove breast. Do you like grilled dove breast with onion and bacon? Ha, we got it! Our Chef works passionately every day to satisfy all our guests. We provide a delicious dessert with every meal. If you lucky, you might even get to enjoy our famous sweet milk caramel or “dulce de leche”.

Great breakfast with eggs and bacon. “Asados” (BBQ), and special requests available. We also provide some amazing wine to go with dinner every night. Lastly, do not go home without trying mate, the special Gaucho tea. Bittersweet never tasted so good!

THE FIELDS

Argentina is considered a dream for waterfowlers. One of the best options offered is the Parana River, one of the longest rivers in the world, surrounded by thousands of little islands that are just the right place for duck breeding. The Pilaga Island is also very famous for the amazing number of ducks and the variety of species that come every year.

The 50 square mile radius (129 km2) around the shooting area form one of the most amazing duck shooting reserves. On the northern area of the lodge, about 60 miles away, there are a couple of great roosting areas for doves, and the fields covered with natural grass have a great population of Perdiz. Our location is annually inhabited by over fifteen million ducks during the season. People and outfitters talk about a population of twenty million doves. Our Company counts on thirty different shooting fields throughout the entire region.

THE HUNTING - Mixed Bag

We call the Mixed Bag Program the shooting combination of three different species in one place. The Mixed Bag Program offers you the best of three different activities. It includes the challenging shooting of ducks, the big volume shooting of doves, and the unique perdiz hunt. 

It is normally an average program of four nights. In the mornings you will shoot ducks or perdiz, and in the afternoons you will be shooting ducks or doves. This is a seasonal activity that we are offering during our winters (from May to August).

The perdiz hunt could be compared to the quail hunt in Georgia or Alabama, but these birds are normally in small groups of two. It requires a well-trained dog, a professional guide with good skills to run the dog, and two shooters. Please check on this website the section called the hunting for more details and pictures.

Dove shooting in this program is different from Cordoba’s Dove Shooting. The terrain is flatter, so there are not as many shooting angles in terms of the presentation of the birds. The volume of birds is as good as in the well-known Cordoba program, but normally in the afternoons, birds fly in bigger volumes. It is important to know that you will have more than two hours of big volume shooting, which in Argentina means hot barrels and lots of action. 

FIELD ASSISTANT AND GUIDES

They are well known in the dove hunting world as bird boys, but we call them field assistants because 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.

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.

People make a difference, and we are proud of the people working with us, from the amazing service to the skills they bring every day to the field. Be ready for some of the best royal treatment.

SHOTGUNS

We run the largest bird hunting operation in Argentina and we own the largest number of Beretta & Benelli shotguns together with all our lodges.

Base Price is for 4 Night stay double occupancy. Single occupancy additional fee based upon availability.

Rules & Guidelines

TRAVELLING HERE

The final destination for this hunting option is Santa Fe City (Sauce Viejo Airport).

The best international connection is through Buenos Aires (Argentina).

In Buenos Aires, you'll arrive at Ministro Pistarini International Airport in Ezeiza (EZE) and you'll have to change the airport to Jorge Newbery Airfield (AEP).

Here are great connections to Buenos Aires from New York, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Los Angeles.

IMPORTANT: Since you have to change airports in Buenos Aires, make sure that you have at least 4 hours between connections. EZE and AEP are located far from each other (almost 2 hours drive, depending on traffic).

Most of our guests that come hunting in Santa Fe arrive on their check-in date and start hunting that same day. A different option is to arrive a day earlier in Buenos Aires, spend the night in the city, and fly to Santa Fe the following day.

If there are no flights available to Santa Fe on your hunting date, you can also fly to Paraná, General Justo José de Urquiza (PRA). Paraná is in Entre Ríos province, which is right next to Santa Fe, and its airport is located at the same distance as SFN.

Ministro Pistarini Airport (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

Right now, 31 airlines operate out of Ministro Pistarini Airport. Ministro Pistarini Airport offers nonstop flights to 51 cities.

Every week, at least 126 domestic flights and 833 international flights depart from Ministro Pistarini Airport.

Sauce Viejo Airport (Santa Fe, Argentina)

Right now, only 1 airline operates out of Sauce Viejo Airport: Aerolineas Argentinas

When connections are through Buenos Aires (Argentina) you arrive at Ministro Pistarini Airport in Ezeiza and have to change airport to Aeroparque. It is 40 minutes in between airports and up to 80 minutes in rush hours.

Consider also private charters from Buenos Aires to San Justo.

From San Justo airport to The Lodge it is 45 minutes drive.

What people usually do is to arrive in Buenos Aires, spend the night there and take this flight the next morning since there is only one flight at 8:15 am to Santa Fe.

Final destination for this hunting option is Santa Fe City (Sauce Viejo Airport). From the city to the lodge, is a 2:10 hours drive.

And, to return, there are two flights from Santa Fe to Buenos Aires: one at 10.15 am and another one at 2.15 Pm.
