I"m sure lots of you have hunted in Argentina by now,,,, if you haven't, this is how it looks. Notice, they dont fly from one direction to another, just helter skelter,, ALL DAY LONG. There is never a 5 minute break,,, they just come and come. We hunted 3 or so hours in the morning and again in the afternoon. They DONT pick up the birds, your bird boy reloads your gun and has a clicker in his hand to count the birds you kill. At dinner they passed around the tally sheet. I am posting a pic of that, some will find it incredible. I scratched out names. When we left on Sun. another group was arriving,,, from what I could tell they do this for 4 or 5 straight months. I still cant understand why they never run out of birds.

birds in the air in Argentina

Thats pretty cool. You said that they dont pick up the birds. Does that mean that you pick them up at the end of the day?

NO one picks them up-------- just leave them ----- to be honest it is almost sickening, we were in the middle of nowhere and no one to give the birds to. Just not what we are used to here.

Leaving the birds there to rot is not cool, any way you slice it.

I went with some buddies back in February and other than the security detail out hunt was just as you described. Man it was a blast. I shot over 1000 both of the full day hunts. Our bird boys did pick up a lot of the birds at the end of each hunt but there were lots left in the field as well. My neck hurt form keeping it on a swivel during the hunts.

Would be interested in seeing a break down of approximate costs for 2-3 day hunt.

I'm glad you posted this is a way, I took quite an interest in dove hunting in Argentina after a buddy of mine mentioned he booked a trip, but now that I see what goes on there I won't be making that trip..

In many places in South America these are crop depredation hunts to minimize the damage the millions and millions of dove to local crops each year.
