Argentina dove hunting at La Paz means full mixed-bag wingshooting at an affordable price. Following breakfast, a full array of Argentina wingshooting opportunities are available as the hunters decide: the shooting program is unstructured and hunting parties may choose to hunt doves under a busy flyway, ducks over a nearby wetland, perdiz over exceptional German short-hair pointers, or wild pigeons decoying near watering areas. Guests may swap their shotguns for spinning reels and cast for golden dorado, especially during extended stays.
The La Paz Argentina dove hunting program is ideal for groups of 5-6 shooters that seek to experience fully the wingshooting diversity of Argentina without the inconvenience and expense of mid-trip transfers. The relaxed itinerary accommodates a brief day touring Buenos Aires and the rest ensures one’s power of enjoyment following international travel.
Located in western Entre Rios, a northeastern province of Argentina that literally means “between rivers”, geography and land-use create the bird hunter’s paradise. The Paraná River and the Uruguay River collectively form the watershed (ie., migratory bird funnel) encompassing northern Argentina, all of Paraguay, much of southern Brazil, into Bolivia and most of Uruguay. Terrain is mostly-flat Paraná River delta and associated wetlands. Habitat is characterized by very compact vegetation, wildlife-beneficial agriculture, primarily rice (Entre Rio accounts for 60% of Argentina’s rice production), and pastureland. Soybeans, wheat and maize are other principle row crops. Waterfowl and upland game birds thrive.
In the absence of substantial hunting pressure, and with an abundance of cover, cereal crops and feed lots, dove hunting is excellent; expect to experience excellent dove shooting combined with quality Argentina duck hunting at the same lodge. The benchmark 1000-bird dove hunt is just one fun-filled afternoon away.
Duck hunting is done from dry and semi-dry blinds that are well-brushed for concealment and rarely more than a half-hour ride from the lodge for maximum convenience. During the Argentine fall through winter months April-August, the duck limit is a generous 30 per person, which is usually accomplished within a couple hours or less.
Golden Dorado fishing is an opportunity that makes the La Paz Argentina Dove Hunting Combo truly special. A day spent fishing for golden dorado perfectly separates 2 days of wingshooting before and afterwards during a 5-day program. While water temperature may be cool during the winter months, the weather needed to produce good fishing is usually possibly on extended trips – and if not, well, there’s always the incredible hunting for ducks, doves, perdiz and doves to fall back on!
The landscape of agricultural crops and forest cover is interpersed with pastureland that offers superior perdiz hunting over some of the finest German short-haired pointers in the country. Limits of 10 per person are usually completed within a few short hours of easy walking, even while taking in the beautiful sites or taking time to visit with present company. Wild pigeons are best decoyed during the afternoons as they come to watering holes shrouded in brush, but are commonly taken during doves hunts also.
Hunters are lodged in private executive suites in the Alto de parana located in the quaint river town of La Paz, situated on the beautiful Paraná River. Guests are lodged 2 per suite. In addition to great beef for which Argentina is famous, superb dishes of locally fresh-caught fish are a client hit.
An artisanal chocolate confectionary is located nearby, and non-hunting activities located conveniently within walking distance include golf, shopping, horseback riding. The La Paz Hot Springs Spa is the perfect place reinvigorate tired muscles with a hot soak, sauna or massage; La Paz’s Museum is an excellent option for becoming better acquainted with local culture.
From the time you arrive in Buenos Aires until time to return to the States, your bilingual hostess will personally attend to every detail involving your travel enjoyment. From tours and dinner in Buenos Aires, to ground transfers and times spent at the lodge and afield, she will serve as your personal tour guide and interpreter. This is an excellent Argentina dove hunt for shooting guests that wish to experience full-package wingshooting – and angling – opportunities.

“So many positives about this La Paz operation, I don’t know where to begin. Best organization, food and diverse shooting I’ve ever experienced in Argentina. After this morning’s duck hunt we had to wait for the sun to come up to take pictures.
We later viewed a field that was solid with pigeons, doves, parakeets and ducks. So many White-faced Whistling Ducks it looked like Snow Geese in Arkansas.
Followed a nice German Shorthair shooting Perdiz this afternoon. Shot 10 for 10. Just finished an aged Argentine tenderloin that was smothered in a wine based mushroom sauce and that you could cut with a spoon. Oh yes, more wine. A cheeky bottle of Malbec with great legs and a sassy finish. Going to sit in a mineral bath now, the pigeons are in trouble tomorrow morning. PS – If we don’t list this hunt, I quit!!!” ~ Pat Pitt, July 2010

About the Area – Argentina Dove Hunting Combo at La Paz
Entre Ríos is a northeastern province of Argentina, located in the Mesopotamia region. It borders the provinces of Buenos Aires, Corrientes and Santa Fe, and Uruguay in the east. The first inhabitants of the area that is now Entre Ríos were the Guaraní, Charrúa and Chaná, who each occupied separate parts of the region. Spaniards entered in 1520, when they ventured up the Uruguay River searching for the Pacific Ocean.
The name of the province means “between rivers”. Entre Ríos is rife with many rivers and streams: the Paraná River and its delta to the west and south; the Uruguay River and the Mocoretá River to the east; and the Guayquiraró River to the north. As part of the Mesopotamic region, the land is almost completely flat, with hills some 100 meters in height.
The Paraná River is second in length only to the Amazon River among South American rivers. The name Paraná is an abbreviation of the phrase “para rehe onáva”, which means “as big as the sea”). It merges downstream with the Uruguay River to form the Río de la Plata and empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
The City of La Paz is located on the Paraná River and began as a natural harbor. It is reached by National Route 12, at the 800th kilometer marker from the Buenos Aires. A quaint city of about 25,000, tourism during the South American summer months is integral to the local economy. Consequently, amenities such as the La Paz Fine Arts Museum, the recently-developed La Paz Hot Springs Spa, a local hospital, golf course, restaurants and churches are conveniences not readily available in many other Argentina wingshooting venues.

Lots of birds and fishing was great. The quality and variety made a wonderful trip. Accommodations were comfortable in a beautiful setting and the food was outstanding. The hosts (Martha, Osvaldo and Karen) were the best. It was nice that Martha was there when you arrived to help through customs and all the way to departure.
Hunting with my boys is the best to me, and for them to experience the finest Argentina ducks hunting in the world was rewarding. They also got to see what a well run operation looks and feels like. I know from past experiences that most Argentina hunting trips are not this quality. Personal attention, quality accommodations, professional but personable services from the entire staff. Everyone from the hosts to the bird guides were fun to be with.
You guys at GetDucks.com know your stuff. You have been there and know the experience personally. It makes a huge difference.

La Paz is a slice of Heaven! As a lifetime waterfowl enthusiast and owner of a waterfowl operation in North America, I understand that the success of a trip is the collection of everything one experiences while in the care of others.
The accommodations in La Paz were supurb. Food was gourmet and homemade. The hosts, as well as our facilitator Martha, made us feel at home.
The details of our hunt were accounted for from the fun loving bird boys to the excellent dog work. The hunting was full of variety. We shot decoying ducks including 4 species of teal, tree ducks, shovelers and rosy-billed pochards while watching hundreds of thousands of doves fly overhead. Dorado, perdiz, decoying pigeons and intense dove hunting were at our fingertips!
Thanks for the incredible time. Next time I will leave the boys behind and return with my spouse…soon!

The hospitality, diversity and hunting were all very good. The food was great as well! Martha was an excellent assistant and made our experience more complete with a great attitude that allows interaction with the staff. Regarding the diversity of the experience – I can’t pick a favorite hunt, but all were very enjoyable. There was great communication with GetDucks.com staff prior to the hunt. All things went smoothly once we arrived at La Paz and we’d prefer a more direct transfer next time. One suggestion is to put more photos of the cottages, chocolate factory and mineral springs on your page! We thoroughly enjoyed La Paz, although it is not the fanciest place in the world it is right down my alley!!!

I had the greatest trip of a lifetime down in La Paz. From you Anita doing all the paper work which was well done to Ramsey calling me beforehand to make sure I had everything in place, you have a well organised business.
From the La Paz operation you have a real gem in Martha, she really went to the end of the world to do everything possible for me, as well as that I found a real friend who is very bright and intelligent and has deep thoughts and emotions. She stuck with me like glue and never missed a beat. She is your most prized asset and I hope that you accommodate her very very well for without her your operation down there would not be as successful!!!!
The shooting was as good as advertised and I shot 96 pigeons, 72 ducks and 10 Perdiz over 2 days so that is what I went down there for and I realize that sometimes birds don’t always show up!! I have wonderfull memories and you all made it come true for me.
All in all a wonderful trip. I hope to come back some day. It’s a huge expense for me but well worth it .
Once again many many thanks to you all.
Have a great day,

Dear Anita,Thanks so much for everything. The team at Sierra Brava was outstanding. As we arrived late at night, in the dark and tired after a long and adventurous day, the team was waiting for us in the cars at the end of the road since who knows how long. We had a warm welcome, a wonderful dinner and an amazing day of hunting under the sun and gentle winds. Unforgettable from my end!
Andris has now the wonderful distinction of being part of the 2,000 club with an incredible ratio for accuracy…. made a few others at the dinner table envious and all of us proud to be there for the event. Unforgettable!!
I have included a few photos of the results of our hunt – which goes to show how much fun we did have!
Thanks again and you can count on me for a warm recommendation to anyone who asks.

Anyone thinking about Cordoba dove hunting, do yourself a favor and put the hunt together through Ramsey and GetDucks.com. I can honestly say there was not a moment that went by while we were there we were not treated like kings! We ate good, shot a bunch of birds (5311 doves to be exact for all three of us) and made some memories we will forever remember. I cannot begin to describe how special this hunt was for the three of us. My little brother and I both shot over 1,000 doves in 1 day (he shot 1,001 and I shot 1,124) so we get our names on the “1000 club” plaque in the lodge. Did I mention the food was good? The personalized service was outstanding. I mentioned to one of the guides, I wanted to shoot a parakeet. I would of been alright shooting one while dove hunting but they set up an extra hunt at no cost within a few hundred yards of the lodge. I ended up shooting 2083 doves over 3 days of hunting, probably would of taken me a couple lifetimes to shoot that many over here! I am so thankful to have Dad around. This trip meant the world to me and is one I will not soon forget. Thanks again Ramsey, we are already talking about going back on a duck hunt next year over there!
