WATERFOWL HUNTING: THE ARGUMENT FOR PLAN B (Argentina duck hunting Rio Salado)
Argentina 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. And as the following story attests, waterfowl hunting basics apply:
The Argentine sun gently bathes the wetland in soft, orange light, revealing quality waterfowl habitat in all directions, most of it full of birds: several thousand rosybill pochard, five species of colorful teal, white-cheeked and yellow-billed pintails, and red shovelers.
This is the real reason to visit Argentina—for the unique and diverse species. But I’m also here for the country’s promise of high-volume shooting, which is why I am surprised when, on my first morning, I do not fire a single shell.
If the remainder of my Argentina duck hunting is to be salvaged it will require adjustment, and a reliance on a few waterfowl basics that don’t change according to hemisphere.
