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?
