WATERFOWL HUNTING: THE ARGUMENT FOR PLAN B (Argentina duck hunting Rio Salado)

argentina duck huntingArgentina duck hunting at Rio Salado consists of pure, unbaited, old school duck hunting in a remote 74,000 acre paradise of a wetland.  It’s one of the very best-remaining high-volume Argentina duck hunts, but it’s real duck hunting.
