The Best Way to Start the Year

On the 7th of January, I met an amazing group from New York; Tim Kilgallon and his friends Daniel, Dean and Ben. They arrived in Cordoba on that same day, saturday morning, and I went to the NH Panoramic Hotel to pick them up in the afternoon to accompany them on a walking city tour in Cordoba city.


One of Cordoba’s main attractions is the Jesuit Block, a series of colonial buildings that has been declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The Jesuit Block is a city block of buildings constructed by the Jesuits during the 17th and 18th centuries, including schools, temples and residences. Among the more impressive features are a crypt at the underground novitiate temple, the Company of Jesus Church (the oldest temple in Argentina), and Argentina’s first university, which has been converted into a historic museum by the Cordoba National University.

The city’s most important religious building is the Catedral de Cordoba. Its architecture combines neoclassical, romantic and baroque elements fused with indigenous details. The interior design highlights vault paintings and a variety of contemporary adornments.


Another thing we went visiting was the amazing Paseo del Buen Pastor, a cultural center in the historic district. Modern and functional, it includes a beautiful colonial chapel (Capuchinos) and conserves original pieces such as porticos and columns, combining contemporary and historic elements. It is made up of diverse spaces designed to house art exhibitions along with various galleries, theaters, cinemas, concert halls and dancing fountains that perform a light and music show in the evenings. There are spacious gardens, terraces, plazas and open-air areas for relaxing, surrounded by excellent restaurants and cafes. El Paseo del Buen Pastor is a true delight for art lovers!

Los Capuchinos church, just in front of the Paseo del Buen Pastor, is a true example of Gothic Revival architecture, designed and made by the famous Italian artist and engineer Augusto Ferrari. He brought specialized staff from Rome to build this structure. The interior and exterior are incredibly beautiful!


So, it was a hot day but they were really happy about our summer weather since snow is the main character in NYC these days.

It was 6 pm and the tour guide started to telling us all about Cordoba’s history, and after an hour of interesting facts, the group was feeling thirsty – but excited still-  so I took them to a beer place called Antares in Nueva Cordoba neighbourhood, to grab some beers before dinner.


Beers, laughter, happiness, camaraderie, everything was going great. At 8:30 pm we had reservations made for the group to have and amazing Argentine Barbecue in Alcorta Restaurant for dinner.

Red wine, the most important part of the night, appear to delight our clients palad. Let me tell you a little bit of Argentinean Wine.

Aromas and colors of Córdoba’s wines are closely related to the work of both Jesuits and Friuli immigrants that inhabited the province. As in almost all winemaking regions in Argentina, the Jesuits were those responsible for introducing wine in the province, mainly for mass celebration. Our wines’ handwork can be perceived in their intensity, a flavor enhanced by those of pork meats, cold-cuts and cheese from Colonia Caroya, where the largest local winemaking production is concentrated.

Dan and Dean are chefs, so they were really into this part of the day. They told me lots of stories of all kinds of food they’ve tasted around the world, but nothing compares to the meat and wines we have in Argentina, they said.

Dinner time was over and so I took them back to the hotel, so they can rest and relax before starting the hunting trip with us.


The next morning, Martin, one of our main guides, went to the hotel at 11:00 am to pick them up and take them straight to the field. 


It was a rainy morning, but Martin managed to escape the storm and arrive to the field right on time for lunch.


After lunch the gentlemen took a quick nap in the shadow of the trees on the hammocks, had coffee ,and chatted before they headed to their afternoon hunting locations.

Once the afternoon hunt was over, Martin took them to the Plaza Real Lodge so they can relax and have a massage session after such a long day of hunting.


The football game was on the TV, so they were all watching that. After some snacks, drinks and the game, we had dinner and then went to the firepit, and, a few hours later, we all decided to go to sleep so we can be ready for the day we had ahead.

The next morning we woke up at 7 am and went to the dining room to have an energetic breakfast to be good to go. Martin arrived at 8am with the van and everything ready for us. We got in there and started that unique experience they were really excited to have.


On that cloudy and hot day we arrived to the field, after escaping from the dark clouds full of water, and the team was waiting for us with everything prepared to hit the hunting spots.

We heard the shots and we knew everything was going great. By the time they finished the morning hunting, lunch was ready.


Our amazing and professional chef Federico, prepared for us a really tasty lunch. We had the traditional Argentinean barbeque known as “asado”. A light salad composed of cabbage, tomato, and lettuce was our first course. It was doused with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, giving it a sweet tang. Juicy sausage was served next. Then came the pork flank. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and lime juice; it was the perfect consistency of fat and muscle. It is akin to eating a large succulent piece of bacon. The main entrée was tenderloin. Slow cooked to perfection with a moist pink center and a charred exterior. The two textures playing off each other exceptionally. Lastly, chicken thigh and breast seasoned with lime juice, salt, and pepper. For dessert we had Tiramisu. It was light and airy providing a sweet but not overly filling end to our meal.


The sunny afternoon was waiting for them, so, they took a quick nap to relax a little bit and went back to their hunting spots.


I don’t think I can really put in words how much fun this group had while hunting here with us. They were having a blast! Doves were everywhere and flying really fast, the challenge was on!

It was my first time hosting a group from New York City, and I have nothing to say but good things about them. An amazing group of people, full of energy and fun, open to other cultures, trying to make everyone to feel comfortable, Tim’s group.


You should be the next one !

Generation after Generation

We have reached the last month of the year but our season is not over yet. I arrived at the airport around 1:10 pm on a sunny day with a temperature of 29 degrees, waiting for our friend Mark and his son John.


Once we were with our guests inside the van, we left the airport ready to undertake trip to the shooting zone that is towards the north of the province of Cordoba, well-known as the “tuna zone”, located an hour away from the airport, where the rest of Pointer’s team is waiting for us, ready to have an amazing hunting day.


As usual Gaby (number one) is waiting for us with a tasty Argentine lunch, well known as Asado, that includes tenderloin, matambre (a thin cut from Argentina and Uruguay) with lemon, boneless chicken and chimichurri!

After lunch, we like preparing the hammocks for our friend to relax and take a quick nap before the afternoon hunt.

We are ready to go to the shooting zone. It’s already 3:30 pm and we see a large volume of doves reaching the nesting area.


Our friend Mark visited us for the second time fortunately, and this year he wanted to pass along the experience of dove hunting in Cordoba to his son John.

We double checked that all the shotguns are in great conditions and, once everything was OK and our field assistants were located in the hunting spots, the day started.


In terms of shotguns, our customers were pleased to use our new Benelli Montefeltro 20 cal shotguns. They are our workhorses and the only weapons that carry on like no other the pressure of Cordoba’s high volume hunting. They were really surprised by its comfort when shooting over 2000 thousand rounds a day. They have been shooting 20 gauge ammunition 7, which is one of the best ammunition for the sport of shooting doves. We also use regular ammunition ½ or 7 and 8 and loads of gunpowder in our cartridges are of 25 grams.

Benelli’s Montefeltro shotgun features a slim, graceful forend, which, combined with an anodized, lightweight receiver, keeps the weight minimal and the swing quick.

It has an Inertia-Driven System, which means that the shotgun is clean, reliable, and adjustment-free.We have them available in 12- and 20-gauge, we do not have any with left hand configurations. We like a lot the low-profile rib.


At this time of the year, summer is starting in Argentina, so we have a temperature from 20 to 30 degrees celsius and of course, rainy days, so it is important to have very strategic fields for these months, but that never stops us from providing our clients of a good time!


Once I heard the first shots I decided to go to the sports and see how everything was going up there.

I arrived and I saw that everything was going great. Mark was asking the field assistants for some advice for him and his son, so I told him that it’s very important when you shoot to have a feet relaxed so you are able to move with total freedom to follow the doves, and it’s also very important to have your arms in the right position (lined up) because that will give you a great precision while firing the shotgun .


After three days of pure shots, the faces of Mark and John showed us nothing but satisfaction of being together in Cordoba.

Their numbers were unbelievable; both of them got really great rates, some days it was more than a 1000 doves ! So we congratulate them by making them part of the 1000 Doves Club!

So, great clients with a great crew, leads to a great trip. They were very pleased with our amazing lodge, La Loma, and with their host those days, Juan, who takes great care of every single client we have, making them feel as comfortable as possible.


As they said, it was a wonderful trip!

I hope to see you guys next time,

A Memorable Weekend

It’s December and we still have a lot of things to do before ending a great 2016 full of work and great new friends. Now, it was about time for Joseph Thomas Bailey (from now on: “Joe”) and Edwin Gilbert Bell (“Ed”) to come and visit us.


They arrived in Cordoba’s airport on December 1st at 3pm, and then Martin, who went to pick them up, took them straight to the field, where Emanuel, Santiago and Tata were waiting for them with some tenderloin sandwiches.

We don’t like losing too much time for lunchtime on the first day if we have guests going directly to the field at 3.30 or 4 pm, because the priority is to hunt a bunch of doves and then, on the following day, with plenty of time, we would have an amazing argentinian barbecue at the field with the entire camp set out.


It was raining on the second day when I woke up, so,  after a big breakfast, we decided to wait a couple of extra minutes at the Lodge until the rain stopped for a while.

By 8:30 am. we were in the truck ready for a new adventure. It rained all morning long, but luckily for us, it was an easy rain. It didn’t stop the doves from flying, and,  of course, Joe & Ed from having a great time. 


When we were close to lunchtime, we decided to go to a nice restaurant 10 minutes away from the the field, that we occasionally use when we have rainy days. Don’t get me wrong, is very unusual to have rainy days here in Cordoba throughout the year. In fact, this was my first time in 3 years of going to the fields that I had barbecue in a restaurant. Anyway, food was great and the place looks like an old 70’s local restaurant. I liked it and even more important, the guys liked it a lot! 


Once we were back in the field for the afternoon hunt, the storm moved away and we had a great hunting afternoon; Ed killed 856 doves with 49 boxes, while Joe did 611 but with 36 boxes.

It was 6:15 pm when we arrived to La Loma Lodge, where Paola and the ladies were expecting us with some drinks and wet towels. After this, the guys took a long and refreshing shower while I was waiting for them with some appetizer and 2 olives Martini with Joe’s name on it and a long glass of cold beer for Ed. We had a really nice evening and, after a great dinner, we stayed for a while around the fire pit with the great Jimmy “Baby Baby” Reed singing for us and a cup of wine each.


On the following day we went hunting to the same Hills but to a different field. The morning was very good but nothing compares to the afternoon, since we were closer to an area where doves go back to sleep; the nesting area. Afternoon was separated from the morning with a very neat camp, where Emanuel was cooking some beef (tenderloin), chicken, sausage, pork flank and some dove’s brochette, that Ed & Joe gently killed for us.


After lunch Ed went straight to the hammocks, same as Joe but with  first having his Cuban cigar. That afternoon we all finished at Ed spot, shouting and having fun with some nice and very difficult long shots, but also with some “easy ones” he missed (you can’t just hit them all!!). Joe was there too; he shot 20 boxes, while Ed did 30.


Once again, ladies were expecting us with some drinks and wet towels. And, unlike the day before, that night we had LASAGNA!! I love the lasagna that Silvia, our chef at La Loma Lodge, prepares for us once a week.

That night was really short, since we were all tired and our friends were a little sore from a great hunting day: empty shells everywhere! Before we all got asleep, we thought about the plans for the next day and so we decided to take a free morning and then go straight to the field for lunchtime and do some shots in the afternoon.


And so we did. That afternoon Ed shoot only 4 boxes and he gently invited me to take the shotgun. I didn’t start very well but after a few shoots I was getting lucky and started hitting them very often. We were having a blast and I remember Tata saying: Ok, let’s open a box and see how many birds can you get with 25 shells. The final number was 19 from 25. But it was not the numbers what really brought me joy that afternoon, I really enjoyed watching Ed smile as he watched Tata and me shouting and laughing and how “stupid crazy happy” we can get when we start shooting doves. The funniest one was the one I shoot and ended up on top of my foot!

Joe, on the other hand, fired 20 boxes. There was no reason of picking up more shells, these two 75 years “old” gentleman’s (they don’t look old at all!) did a total of 3384 birds shooting up 5575 shells between both of them. I whish I have that energy at my 60’s!!, if I’m lucky to live long enough.


Last day arrived and it was time to take these two great new friends to the airport. Francisco was the person in charge to take them there and so, at 11am, I introduced him to our friends. We had a soft appetizer and once we gave us our final greeting, they got into the truck leaving to Cordoba’s airport, while I, on the other hand, was turning on the air conditioner, putting some great “Asleep at the wheels” music and started driving back to Bs As.


It was a great time…a memorable weekend!

Fun all over the Field

On December 18th, two families integrated by Frank Barron Fletcher III and his son, and Joseph Holmes Davis V and his son, arrived at the airport at 5:40 p.m. Then, we went to the Hotel Plaza Real and, due to the arrival time, the hunting was not done.


The hotel was hosted by Vicky on behalf of the company. She welcomed them and accompanied them to their rooms to make them feel at home. At 8:30 pm they had dinner and then sat around the firepit to share drinks and stories before retiring to rest.


On the first day of hunting the idea was to leave the lodge at 8:30 am, but because the night before was a little bit long, we ended up leaving at 9:45 am.

We headed northeast of route 60 (mountain range) where, thanks to a good climate,we had an excellent day. Due to the delay of the departure we decided to extend our morning hunt a little until 1 pm, at which time, our cook Federico, waited for us with a typical Argentine Asado with the best cuts of meat you could ever imagine.


Once we finished lunch, our new friends decided to take a little nap in the hammocks, in the shade of the trees, to relax and to prepare for the hunting of the afternoon. At 3 pm we resumed the hunt, placing us at the top of the mountain range, as JOSEPH (father) wanted to change the shot and hunt lower pigeons.

At 5:45 pm we returned to the hotel to finish the day of hunting. There, Lori waited for them to dine with them and make sure everything worked as it should be.


The day started at 8am. We decided to start the trip an hour earlier because the place chosen is more distant than the day before. Thus, we went to the eastern part of Jesus Maria, where the weather in the morning accompanied us again, but, for lunch, we had scattered showers that were not grounds to suspend the hunting of the day, but in the afternoon, due to a toothache, they decided to throw only an average of 5 box each and then return to the hotel. Once at the lodge, we were able to give a quick solution to Fletcher son’s toothache problem.


On the third day of hunting, I went to pick them up at 8:30 am and we decided to go to the northwestern zone of the road 60 because of the bad weather that started the night before and lasted until 10 am. Don’t get me wrong, that type of wheather made the temperature go lower so the morning hunting was amazing– remember that here we are in spring almost summer so it gets really hot and, sometimes, a cold morning helps a lot-. 

Lunchtime was at 12.30 pm. We prepared the tent and started a little fire so that our new friends get warmer while they enjoyed the one and only Malbec wine.


Lunch at the field is amazing.  For lunch we usually have traditional Argentinean barbeque known as “asado”. A light salad composed of avocado, onion, tomato, and lettuce is our first course. It is doused with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, giving it a sweet tang. Juicy sausage is served next. Then, the pork flank. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and lime juice; the perfect consistency of fat and muscle. It is akin to eating a large succulent piece of bacon. The main entrée is tenderloin. Slow cooked to perfection with a moist pink center and a charred exterior. The two textures playing off each other exceptionally. Lastly, chicken thigh and breast seasoned with lime juice, salt, and pepper. For dessert; peach flan. It islight and airy providing a sweet but not overly filling end to our meal.


After lunch the gentlemen had coffee and took a quick nap in the hammocks before they headed to their afternoon hunting locations.

The afternoon hunt was great. it exceeded everyone’s expectations. Holmes son got to complete for his first time more than 1000 doves in just one day! He said it was the best way to finish this incredible trip.


On the last day, and because of the itinerary of the flights, we could not go to the fields, but they woke up, had a huge breakfast to reload their energy and we left at 9 am straight to the airport.


Four people with a great sense of humor and very kind that we hope we see again soon.

Great New Friends

Brent Beard’s group arrived in Cordoba on the first of september and they decided to stay that night at the Amerian Park Hotel in downtown Cordoba. The next day, we picked them up at the hotel at 8.30 am and went straight to the field in order to stay the hunting day.


We arrived at 10.45am and there, the field assistants and the guides were waiting for us with everything prepared to start the amazing day we had ahead.
This time, the place we have chosen to go hunting is in the northern part of the province, in a place called “ Los Pozos”.
That morning’s weather was a bit cold, something that was not helpful at all for the doves to fly as we are used to see them flying.


The hunt lasted 2 hours and, once we finished the morning hunt, we went to the camp, where our chef David was waiting for us with lunch ready.

For lunch we had traditional Argentinean barbeque known as “asado”. A light salad composed of avocado, onion, tomato, and lettuce was our first course. It was doused with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, giving it a sweet tang. Juicy sausage was served next. Then came the pork flank. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and lime juice; it was the perfect consistency of fat and muscle. It is akin to eating a large succulent piece of bacon. The main entrée was tenderloin. Slow cooked to perfection with a moist pink center and a charred exterior. The two textures playing off each other exceptionally. Lastly, chicken thigh and breast seasoned with lime juice, salt, and pepper. For dessert we had peach flan. It was light and airy providing a sweet but not overly filling end to our meal. After lunch the gentlemen had coffee and chatted before they headed to their afternoon hunting locations.



At 2.30pm we were leaving to the hunting sports again. The weather? It played us a bad turn once again. There was this cold southerly wind that was not affecting the amount of doves flying, but the quality of the shot, since doves were flying higher and faster.
There was another group coming too, and, since the two groups got along very well, we decided to make one big group. This new group, Mike Amato’s group, arrived at 3pm, ate a quick lunch and then went to their hunting spots to take advantage of the day they had ahead.


The next day, everyone at Plaza Real Lodge started early in the morning. At 7.30 am the clients had a great breakfast. We had planned to leave at 8.30am and so we did.
The morning was cold with great results in terms of the hunting, but not as good as we are used to. Lunch time was earlier that day, because we noticed that doves were flying better around 2pm, so we did not want to be late or in a rush, and on that same day, the clients decided they wanted to keep hunting a bit more, so we finished the day at 6 pm. Luckily, the afternoons were mostly sunny, so our new friends could enjoy great days of hunting.



On the 4th of september, only Brent Beard’s group went hunting since Mike and his friends wanted to go for a horseback riding experience.
Let me tell you a bit more about this amazing experience. On a day of horseback riding, we would leave the lodge about 8 -8.30 am. We then have a one hour drive on a very scenic road going up to the highlands of Cordoba where you will find beautiful areas for sightseeing and photography. Once we get to the riding lodge the manager and the horse riding guides will meet us. Then we will be introduced to the horses. Now we are ready to start the horse riding trip between hills, rocks, trees and pampas. After this trip we go back to the lodge for lunch time. We will enjoy some of the delicious dishes that our professional chef makes. Great food accompanied by exceptional red wine.
After lunch we take a break in this beautiful Estancia with an English style and get ready for another two hours of horse riding. At about 5.30 we go back to the Estancia where we prepared to return to the lodge. At the lodge the girls will be waiting for us with a couple of drinks and reception. No doubt, it is an incredible experience that you should really think about doing.
The hunting was, once again, in Los Pozos. The day was sunny with many doves around us in the morning, but, because of the fatigue the guys had after so many doves hunted, they wanted to stop at 11am.
We went to the camp and David was waiting for us there. He received the group with dove tacos, a great way to start lunchtime.
After Asado, wine, and a tasty dessert, the afternoon hunt began. At 2.15 they were all ready in their hunting spots. It was very windy, but it did not bother them at all.


The next day, the two groups were together again. The morning hunt was unusual because doves were not helping at all, but the afternoon was great though.
Brent and his friends were amazed for sure; they could not believe the number of doves they saw those days here hunting with Pointer Outfitters.
It was their last day, and I am sure that they left with hard desires of coming back down here some day.
The last day Brent and his friends decided to stay at the lodge to prepare everything for their departure. On the other hand, Mike’s group left earlier than the other days in order to take advantage of the day and be able to hunt for many hours. One of the members of Mike Amato’s group, Mike Rinaldi, decided to stay at the lodge too, since his flight was departing before his group’s.
Incredible guys that I’m happy I got to meet and share this great experience with.

Family Fun

We are at the beginning of September and we are really happy to receive another amazing group; Summer Gilchrist and her family and friends. This group, Summer and her husband Mickey, her brother Paxton with his wife Laura, and a very good friend of them all, Shawn, arrived on Monday 7 at 1 pm to Cordoba’s airport, place in which we were waiting to take them straight to the field to have lunch there.



Federico, our chef, was waiting for us with an amazing plan for lunch. We had traditional Argentinean barbeque known as “asado”. A light salad composed of avocado, onion, tomato, and lettuce was our first course. It was doused with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, giving it a sweet tang. Juicy sausage was served next. Then came the pork flank. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and lime juice; it was the perfect consistency of fat and muscle. It is akin to eating a large succulent piece of bacon. The main entrée was tenderloin. Slow cooked to perfection with a moist pink center and a charred exterior. The two textures playing off each other exceptionally. Lastly, chicken thigh and breast seasoned with lime juice, salt, and pepper. For dessert we had peach flan. It was light and airy providing a sweet but not overly filling end to our meal.


After lunch the group had coffee and chatted a bit while taking a nap in the hammock before they headed to their afternoon hunting locations.

It was an amazing afternoon. The weather was incredible and the clients very excited and amazed by the amount of doves they were watching fly around. That first day of hunting was over at 6.30 pm, so, once everyone was ready, we took them to the lodge of their choice; Jesus Maria Deluxe Resort.



There, Vicky, their host for the next days, was waiting for them. After the check in, a quick shower and some refreshing beers, they went to the living room to enjoy some snacks before dinner.

On the second day of hunting, we picked our clients up from the lodge at 8.30am and went to to the lower part of Jesus Maria. Because of the great weather conditions, we decided to prepare the hunting spots closed to a small lagoon surrounded by some reeds in which millions of doves nest.

At 1pm, we stopped the hunting because it was lunch time at the field. Asado, Malbec wine, an amazing dessert, everything was tasty and delightful, and after that great meal, our new friends decided to take a quick nap in order to get ready for the following afternoon hunt.


That second part of the day was simply unbelievable, especially for Paxton, who reached the 1800 doves in just one day!

Now, on the third day with this group, they chose to hunt just in the morning, because in the afternoon, they were going on tour around Cordoba City. 

A city tour on the big city is a great option to get to know this beautiful province. If you decide to take a tour, you would First visit Plaza San Martín & surrounding areas; Cordoba’s cen-tral square. Its western side is dominated by the white arcade of the restored Cabildo and close to it there is the architecturally impressive Cathedral.



Then, we would continue with the Córdoba’s magestic Manzana Jesuitica. The Jesuit block contains the core buildings of the Jesuit system: the university, the church and residence of the Society of Jesus, and the college.

In this area we can also visit some stores or boutiques where you can find our well known leather, nice souvenirs and silver crafts.

After visiting the museums, we are ready to have lunch in a traditional restaurant in the area, pre-paring ourselves for the one and only Paseo del Buen Pastor and Sacred Coeur Church. There are a couple of hip cafe-bars in the central patio area where you can kick back with an Appletini or two. The attached chapel (which has been desanctified) hosts regular live-music performances to finish a nice afternoon.

We would also go to the city’s best contemporary art museums: The Emilio Caraffa Museum, and Palacio Ferreyra Museum. There you will enjoy paintings, sculptures and a Beaux-Arts mansion de-signed by French architect Ernest Sanson and built between 1912 and 1916 for Dr. Martín Ferreyra.


Finally, ten blocks away from the Córdoba urban historical shell, we get deep into the renowned Bohemian neighborhood called Güemes to visit Paseo de las Artes (artisan flea market).This area is a meeting place and a hot tourist spot that grows constantly.

In this case, this group took a look around with Silvia, their tour guide, and then went to have some pizza and beers to Guemes neighbourhood, a place full of young life, culture and amazing things happening. A great way to end the day.

On the last day, we started at 8.30, going to the eastern zone of Jesus Maria.  That morning was excellent; Mickey and Shawn hunted over 1000 doves, and Laura, Paxton’s wife, reached the 1000 in just that day, but it was something very impressive for being a woman.


That night, they decided to stay at the lodge and prepare everything for departure because their flight was leaving at 3am on that same night.

Every moment spent with this people was incredible. Great hunters, great friends.

I hope to see you guys again soon !

Great Hunt and Great Time

We went to Cordoba’s airport to pick Lloyd Voigt and his friends up. They arrived at 1 pm and, once we got their luggage inside the van, we left the airport to go straight to Jesus maria in order to have lunch and then take them to the field to start the afternoon hunt.


That day, we finished the hunting at 6.30 pm and went to the lodge they had chosen; Plaza Real Lodge.

Let me tell you something. Plaza Real is one of the best options for dove hunting in Argentina. It is located in the province of Cordoba, in the center of Argentina, 50 miles (100 km) north of Cordoba’s International Airport. The driving time from the airport to the lodge is one hour. Smack dab in the middle of the main capital of dove hunting in South America. It is close to Totoral City, and this totally renovated and stylish hotel surrounded by farmland, provides excellent and new accommodations to make your trip special. Argentina dove hunting reviews mention this unique place as a great option for wingshooters from all over the world. The rooms are big and comfortable, all with private bathroom, king and queen size beds, in single or double occupancy; and special suites.


The next day, they woke up at 7am and had an amazing breakfast at the lodge. Fruit salad, scrambled eggs, bacon, cereal, and, of course, a lot of coffee, daily basis for a hunter.

I went to the lodge, picked them up, and left with the group to La Para, which is a small town located 100km away from Villa del Totoral, where the lodge is.


If you ask me about the hunt, oh God! It was excellent. Doves were everywhere, it exceeded everyone’s expectations. They just could not believe their eyes!  

Because of the great day they had, everyone was feeling a little bit tired so they decided they wanted to go back to the lodge, and so it was. At 4.30 pm, the hunting for this group was over. We arrived to the lodge at 6 pm, and the girls at the Plaza Real were waiting for the group with a glass of fresh orange juice. 

After arriving to the lodge, they decided to take a shower and maybe have a massage session.

Dinner was ready at 8.30 pm and, after enjoying the fire pit, they went to bed to prepare themselves for another great day.

On the third day, we decided to change the hunting zone and went to the highlands of Cordoba.


The morning was a little slower than how we are used it to be, but it was because of the weather, that was windy and cloudy.

After an amazing lunch with doves in red wine and the incredible Asado Argentino as a main dish, we went back to the hunting spot and we knew it was going to be a great day.

The weather got better and our clients were really excited about this afternoon.

On their last day of hunting, we decided to take them to Jesus Maria, since that is one of the best zones to go hunting because of the quality of our fields there.


The day was sunny and so that made everything easier, helping our new friends to get to the 1000 doves Club !

very happy about this whole trip, they went to the city for their last day in Cordoba.

A brief city tour was done and, after lunch, they were taken to the airport for departure.

Doves everywhere, amazing meals, great people and a group of friends; that’s what made their trip so incredible.

I hope to see you next time !
