WINGSHOOTING / Los Chañares
"I am writing this for Jimmy and me to tell you that we had the most wonderful time in Argentina. Your planning and the execution could not have been anymore perfect! Jimmy has been raving to anyone who will listen about the fabulous time. All of the guides were great, but Mini was our favorite! We enjoyed all of the restaurants, sights we saw, hotels, ----just every aspect of the trip. The shooting was not to be believed! And the Estancia Los Chanares just fabulous! Alex and Jessica made us feel so at home and every need was attended to. Thanks so much and hope to see you on one of your trips to Houston."

Luxurious High-Volume Dove Hunting
Conveniently located 60 miles from the Cordoba international airport, Estancia Los Chañares owns or controls some the finest dove roosting habitat and farmland for which the northern region of Cordoba is known.
The vast choice of different landscapes permits us to offer the type of shooting to please any category of shooter. In some fields, even the most experienced shooter will find the high-flying birds challenging and at the outmost range of a shotgun. However, what all these fields have in common is that they all provide an overwhelming quantity and quality of wild birds, flying all day long. Enthusiastic hunters can easily shoot a case of shells per hour.
The overwhelming quantity of doves is considered a plague in the area as they can destroy a whole crop in just a few hours. Nevertheless, we have carefully developed a game-management program. Contrary to the practice of many other outfitters, the roosting nesting grounds are never hunted, nor are the streams where the birds go to drink.
We also plant many fields with the doveNULLs favorite cereals to keep them on the property. With the lodge in middle of the property surrounded by hunting fields youNULLll never have to endure the tiring van rides of found with many other outfitters in the Cordoba region.
You now have the flexibility to hunt or relax at your own pace without having to follow a rigid schedule normally imposed to accommodate a group. You wake up at a comfortable hour and still get to shoot a case or two of shells before coming back to lunch at the lodge. After savoring a delightful meal, shooters prefer to take a siesta, go for a refreshing dip in the swimming pool or enjoy a ride on one of our many horses. Even if you relax by the pool until five oNULLclock, a hunter can shoot more rounds than most shoulders can handle while the other outfitters and their guests are driving-back to the lodge from far-off fields.
