In Argentina, perdiz literally translates to "partridge", a bird slightly larger than North American quail that holds very well for pointing dogs. Argentina perdiz hunts involve leisurely strolling in low cover, maybe ankle-high. An absence of snakes, cacti, or other unfortunate elements is a bonus. Stylish, European-bred setters or English pointers hold perdiz with staunch, picture-perfect points every time.
Most hunters marvel at how well perdiz hide in practically no cover. It's not uncommon to perdiz explode into flight plainly from between your boots! Perdiz have an eruptive takeoff and make for thrilling shooting. But don't pat yourself on the back too quickly - where there's one, there are usually two perdiz. Argentina perdiz hunting has long been the staple of Argentine sportsmen, and has gained immense popularity among American wingshooting hunters.
Productive fields, superior pointing dogs, and good guides usually results in brief, 2-3 hour hunts despite generous, 10-bird limits. Around the dinner table, you'll enjoy another great meal and exciting stories of famous hits - and infamous misses - that Argentina perdiz hunts usually evoke.
