Many of you may have seen my recent post on the Argentina mixed bag hunt I did in June to Las Perdices Lodge. LINK A number of folks reached out to me afterwards, so I asked the outfitter to consider building a THF special.. and he did. To keep the international phone calls down I've agreed to act as the US agent on these hunts, so you can PM me your contact info and I'll answer any questions and assist with bookings.

Guys.. I updated some of the info on the 3 day hunts. Outfitter sent me a new flyer with corrected days and itinerary.

Also... There is a 4-Day Hunt with 4-Nights lodging available for $3850. The 4 day hunt will enable you to get one extra duck outing (4 total) and one extra dove outing (6 total), but best of all gives you more time to relax, pick and choose when you want to hunt, and how hard.

Rather than bump this thread with a smiley face I'm going to post Hunting Argentina - FAQ and Tips one at a time over the coming weeks. Here's question #1:

Q - Is it better to bring my own gun or use the outfitters?

A – The majority of wing shooters elect to use the outfitters. Cost of getting your gun to Argentina varies my airline, but averages $250 per gun. In some cases the gun rental cost is included in your hunt package, but most outfitters charge a daily rate of $75-$100 per day to rent their guns. Beretta/Benelli 20ga semi-autos are the standard. Most outfitters will make a 2nd gun available at no extra charge during the hunt in the case of jams/break down. Or if you want your bird boy preloading the gun and rotating it into you.

Bringing your own gun has additional risks. Guns require extra airport time coming and going. Baggage handlers will toss your gun case into a baggage pit like any other piece of luggage. If you bring anything other than a Beretta or Benelli, and your gun breaks down during the hunt, ability to repair is limited. (Running thousands of rounds through your gun in a matter of a few days will find any flaw in the mechanism) Gauges other than 20ga can significantly increase your shell costs. Bottom line.. most people leave their personal guns behind on a high volume Argentina hunt.

Q – Can I bring back meat or birds?

A – Importing game meat into the US is generally not an option. Exporting ducks out of Argentina is not currently legal, so technically, importing birds for taxidermy is not legal either since you won’t have the proper permits. It’s best to just take lot’s of pictures, and enjoy meals prepared from our game at the lodge. If you want mounts, they can always be recreated from birds obtained legally from a US breeder. See this link for more information and discussion on the topic: http://getducksblog.blogspot.com/2017/05/exporting-birds-from-argentina.html?m=1

Q – Do I need any special equipment to deal with high volume shooting?

A – To ensure a comfortable trip many outfitters suggest shooting gloves, shoulder pads and quality hearing protection. Lightweight leather shooting gloves are highly recommended to avoid loading blisters or burns from hot barrels. A strap-on shoulder pad (Limb Saver or Caldwells are two good ones) comes in handy even if you’re only shooting a 20ga semi-auto. High quality hearing protection is a must when you’re firing thousands of rounds. Electronic ear-muff style hearing protection that allows you to easily communicate with your bird boy and other hunters is a good option here.

Q – What are "Bonus Birds" when I see that advertised in a hunt?

A – Parakeets and pigeons are considered crop pests the same as a dove. Most outfitters ask that they be harvested as well when the opportunity presents. In the hunts I'm advertising they are included in both the "Mixed Bag" and "High Volume Dove" outings.

A lot of variables here. A quick Orbitz search shows round trips on the low end at $1100 and high end of $1900 depending on the dates you are looking at. Sometimes you can catch an airfare sale and grab trips for under a grand. I do suggest to folks that if you have airline miles to burn, use them on this trip. You get a very good bang for the buck cashing them in going to Argentina.
