Duck Hunting

duck hunting

Our hunts take place along San Javier River, in the province of Santa Fé, where the Paraná Delta, the rice fields and the lakes come together, making of this an authentic paradise for more than twenty species of ducks that inhabit here or migrate to these wonderful lands of South America.

A typical day begins early in the morning, since it is very important to be ready at the shooting place before dawn.

After a delicious breakfast, we go to the coast with the staff, where comfortable boats wait for us. We sail under the stars through the Delta’s water enjoying the wind in our faces and excited about the great adventure. In this last opportunity, the James family joined us: father and son, both very good hunters. They used semiautomatic shotguns, caliber 20, Beretta brand, Urika 391 model. The shotguns show great loyalty since they didn’t jam at no time, which usually happens at dove hunting because of the large volume of shooting.

When we reach the shooting area, the mechanical decoys start to work and the flocks start to show against the wind. Each position is placed strategically. We have one guide and two hunters in each position, and our friends from image and video also working very hard and in absolute silence.

We had a great two hours of intensive action. After each hunter made his quota and every piece are collected, we go back to the warm lodge in the boat. At the dock, Ricardo waits for us with our customers’ favorite drink: gin tonic for everyone. At the lodge, we have a delicious appetizer and a fine wine to accompany during lunch.

When the afternoon begins to show and everything is ready to continue with another unforgettable shooting session, we go out again looking for more ducks in the branches of San Javier River. With everyone in position, the rock and roll starts and for a while we are all excited with the action and the birds coming down to the decoys. Our friends are very good shooters, and they also get a couple of long shoots passing through. After the action with the sun starting to hide, and after finishing a wonderful day, we pick up the ducks and go back to the lodge to drink an ice-cold beer and serve our guests with our menu’s specialties and excellent Malbec Argentinean wine, specially chosen by Pointer Wingshooting.

My Best,
