Argentina offers some of the finest duck hunting to be found anywhere in the world. Liberal bag limits and unique waterfowl species make this country one of the best destinations for the serious waterfowl hunter. Our duck hunting areas lie just north of the province of Cordoba, and in the south in the province of Santiago del Estero. Our other area is in the province of Santa Fe, along the Parana River. The duck hunting season runs from May 1st through August 15th.
Our lodge, "Corrientes" in Santiago del Estero, is situated just minutes away from the water’s edge where our boats, powered by gauchos on horseback are waiting to pull you through the flooded plains to your shooting site. This on its own is worth the trip! Once you arrive at the shooting site you will step out of the boat and your bird boy will set up your shooting stool, prepare your blind and put out the decoys. Then prepare yourself for some of the most incredible duck hunting you will ever experience.
At certain times of the year, depending on the water level, this area is hunted by traveling up or down the rivers and wading on the flooded pastures. Along the banks, cover is found readily and used as a blind. The area is so vast that you never hunt the same place twice. Chest waders are a recommended although the water level you will be hunting in is usually below the knees. The area is also well known for excellent pigeon shooting, which can be added on as extra days . Arrangements must be made in advance to provide our scouts with ample time to locate birds and have dogs available on standby.
Corrientes Lodge has 4 bedrooms of double occupancy each with private bathrooms and showers. Our duck hunts can accommodate 8 hunters with a minimum of 4 and at least 2 days of hunting. There is a daily set limit of 30 ducks in the morning and 30 in the afternoon.
Another of our hunt areas is in the neighboring Province of Santa Fe which is to the east where we have our lodge "Yatay". It can accommodate up to 12 hunters and sits right on the bank of the Parana River. This area consist mostly of flooded pastures and grain fields. One can easily access the blinds by boats and wading a short distance in shallow water to set up. As with our other lodges, when you hunt “Yatay” you will also enjoy fine accommodations, meals and wines.
This region has some of the largest Deltas found in Argentina. International Ornithologists recognize this region with some of the largest concentrations and diversity of species of waterfowl. This is truly a paradise for waterfowl hunters where it is common to shoot 8 to 12 different species of ducks per hunt.
Both areas are between 3 to 5 hours drive from Cordoba, and 3 to 4 hours drive from our Dove hunting lodges, making our duck hunts very convenient to combine with our high volume dove hunts in Cordoba.
