Got a group together and decided to give Argentina a try. Me, gaudi, dutchhunter from
The Netherlands and 2 other friend headed souf last week.

We booked through get ducks.com and the trip far exceeded my expectations. We stayed at some uber rich Italian people's polo farm that they use 3 months/year.




First afternoon we set up on tiny waterholes-1/4 acre tiny that had zero birds on them and at 5 pm the birds poured in. His afternoon limits are 15 ducks/man and Dutch and I shot 30/31 that came in.


Mostly speckeled teal and yellow bill pintails, couple ring teal, and one chiloe wigeon.

First morning we set up on a big marsh and it was everything you expect. The morning limit is 50/man and we had our 250 pretty quickly.


Got all the teal except Brazilian.


Tons of wigeon.




And pintails.


The afternoon we were back on a small pond by a set of cattle pens. Quickly got our 15/man and a bunch of pigeons.






The wood pigeons are about the size of a wigeon and tough as a buffalo.

Next morning three of us set up on the edge of a flooded corn field for a wigeon beat down. 120+/155 shot were wigeon.




That afternoon we skipped the duck shoot and set up on a huge eucalyptus grove to shoot incoming pigeons. Shot mod chokes and number 5's. Everything was 45 yard high incoming shots and it was like hitting a Sherman tank with a hammer. 5 cases of shells later and everyone was done.

Last morning was another marsh beat down.












With one bonus red partridge.


3 full days of hunting was enough to really get to experience it. I would have liked to have had a half day to chase perdiz but it will have to wait till next time.

Awesome, definitely some beautiful specimens for the collector. Has always been on my bucket list. Is goose hunting allowed yet or still closed? Were you able to get birds back home?

Damn, that sucks. I wonder what the likelihood is of any of that ever changing.
