Why bounce along rutted roads in a cramped van for an hour (each way) to hunt doves in Argentina? Our dove hunting fields are just minutes from our hunting lodge in Cordoba and they’re bursting with millions of doves! Dove shooting in Argentina is one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences available for the wingshooter. This is where hunters forge life-long memories over the barrel-burning action of the world’s best high volume dove shooting adventures.
Are you up for the adventure? Plan your Argentina dove hunt with us at El Cortijo resort, where the hunt of a lifetime is only 2 minutes away.
Over the last 10 years, the province of Cordoba has become the most popular destination in the world for dove hunting. More than 50 million doves reside in this beautiful land and government studies show that the population is continuing to grow.
Feeding 50 million doves is no small feat and, as a result, they consume up to 30% of the crops each year. For this reason, the locals consider them pests and dove hunting season is open all year to control the doves population.
Like any prime real estate opportunity, the best dove hunting has much to do with location. Not only should hunting fields be close to dove roosts, feed and water, but also for the comfort and enjoyment of the hunter, they need to be close to the dove hunting lodge.
This is where SYC Sporting beats other Argentina outfitters hands-down: Our hunting area is located northeast of Cordoba city on an agricultural plain that abounds in corn, wheat, sorghum, sunflower, and soy bean fields—all of the dove’s favorite foods! Plus there are plenty of water sources. During August through February, the birds constantly move to and from the roosting area. At this time of the year, you can expect to see several million doves each day, and enjoy incredible shooting opportunities within a 2-minute walk of your room! From April to July, morning hunts take place in the grain fields. Afternoon hunts take place in fields near roost areas 10-15 minutes from our dove hunting lodge.
Because there are so many birds, you can practice all kinds of shots, and it’s common to go through 1,000 shells, and more, per day. This makes dove hunting in Argentina an experience unlike any other in the world and we invite you to experience it in style!. Have you seen our guests dove hunting records? Take a look to get an idea of how many doves will you hunt in just one day!

Mr. Martinez- My group of 6 are headed your way this weekend and will arrive on Sunday, March 6, 2016. We are all coming from San Antonio, Texas, and can’t wait to spend the week with you! Jose Cabrera has been outstanding!!! Can’t wait to do some hunting and raise a glass of red Argentinean Malbec with you! Greg Styles
Sounds too good to be true.
It’s true and it’s great!
You list that son/daughter hunt for free, would that include my 20 year old son
Yes Mickey, your 20 years old son will only pay for the hunting licenses and gun rental.
I suggest to anyone going to Argentina, and more precisely to SYC Sporting, to shoot as much as you can before your trip. Despite all that is said about the amount of birds, low or high season, it is a lie. There are more birds than they claim. The conservative amounts are based on the average skeet shooter targeting a 20m bird. If you are proficient enough to set your level of comfort to 40m, you will shoot a dream.
I’m by no means a top Gun, however and well prepared, I harvested close to 2700 birds with 3300 shells in one very windy afternoon, asking my birdboy not to load my gun, my personal choice. Please understand that this was done in late april, the low season as I understand. During my stay with the exemplary team at the lodge and in the field, I gained many friends and more pounds than I’m willing to share.
After the fabulous field days, the staff were outstanding and by any means, sharing a glass of preferred wine and focused on conversation with the most passionate Edouardo, nurtured more dreams again.
I will go again, soon I hope and insist to shoot with Edouardo.
I have been to argentina 3 times but am really excited about this hunt because we will hunt in fields and close to roosts.Our grandboys are chomping at the bits for july to get here.
We arrived in January, my group of 4 and had the place to our self’s. They picked us up at the Airport in Cordoba n took us to there Beautiful lodge , upon arrival we were greeted with Champagne n lunch,rested n out to the field n started shooting. Lots of doves,great food ( i personally gained, 8lbs in 4 days) They were TOP NOTCH. Very friendly n helpful with anything. My suggestion is shoot a lot, bring sun block ,and a long sleeve t-shirt, a lite pair of shooting gloves n sun glasses A hat that will shade for your neck. Be ready for the time of your LIFE !!!
Thanks for your kind words and for helping us with the doves infestation.
