San Luis Pigeon/Dove

Newly Opened Dos Plumas Lodge

Argentina Pigeon & Dove Hunting

San Luis Pigeon/Dove

Ramiro de las Carreras of South Pioneers Outfitters has delivered with his newly opened Dos Plumas Lodge in the San Luis Province of Argentina. Wingshooters can experience storms of pigeons decoying or passing over while also shooting high-volume dove out of the same lodge. Nearly unheard of in Argentina!

The Trip

The best way to reach Dos Plumas is a flight connecting in Santiago Chile to Mendoza Argentina. Ramiro will be on hand to greet you and transfer you about 3 ½ hours to the lodge where you will have the afternoon to rest and relax. The next four days will be full hunting days for both pigeon and dove. The last morning you will transfer back to Mendoza to catch your flight home connecting again in Santiago. Should you want to fly into Buenos Aires and connect on a flight to the city of San Luis, Trek will be happy to arrange transfers and assistance and can quote accordingly.

The Hunting

It seems now days more and more shooters are looking for high volume pigeon hunting on a consistent basis and Ramiro certainly provides this along with hot barreled dove shooting to satisfy anyone looking for a wonderful combination hunt. You will see a mixture of both pigeons working decoy spreads and the pass shooting guys looking for a challenge, enjoy. Ramiro knows the importance of pigeon sustainability and is seeing more pigeons migrate to the province each season giving way to many more years of successful hunts. We suggest at least four full days of shooting with five nights at the lodge, but can certainly tailor the program to include as many days as you wish.

The Accommodations

Very few lodges exist where you can shoot both pigeon and dove in extreme volume, but Trek has discovered one of the best. San Luis Province is not known for its bird hunting, making this program somewhat of a secret. From April through September, owner Ramiro de las Carreras host clients on a fantastic combination hunt operating out of his new lodge Dos Plumas. Complete with five bedrooms, private baths, large living room, outdoor terrace and close to the fields. Ramiro employees a fully trained chef to provide the traditional Argentine beefs, lambs and sausages.
