Argentina Duck Hunting
BA Province is the largest Argentinian Province and the most populated having the bustling city of Buenos Aires located within the province. Once you are outside the city however, much of the area is low lying cattle fields and crop land creating the perfect habitat for migrating waterfowl. Combine this with little to no local hunting pressure and the traveling waterfowler could not ask for a better area for duck hunting.
Puelo Expeditions has become a household name in the world of Argentina hunting with a reputation of providing quality shooting and the highest standards of service. Owners Ramiro Allende and Octavio Crespo have diversified into waterfowling bringing with it 28 years of experience in customer satisfaction. Rest assured, every effort is made to ensure that you have a comfortable stay while enjoying the mix of superb cuisine, exclusive decoration and real Argentine hospitality.
The BA Province is a duck hunting paradise offering over 11 different species available during the season of late April to August. Pampa Lodge is located a mere hour and a half from BA’s international airport offering you quite possibly the easiest logistics of any duck lodge in Argentina. Each morning you will rise to a full breakfast and head out with your guide to the selected hunting location. Blinds are built with every hunter in mind using hard bottom construction, raised platforms, or “bucket” style pits. Added to the overall traditional experience will be well-trained dogs that will fetch each bird you take decoying into the spread.
Pampa Lodge is located outside the town of San Miguel de Monte and just 65 miles southwest from BA’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE). You can literally be enjoying coffee on the front porch only a couple hours after arriving in Argentina. With a capacity for up to 10 hunters in 5 double rooms, the lodge has a large living area with dining room and fireplace, traditional Argentine cuisine and a well stocked bar.
The best way to reach Pampa Lodge is a flight from the USA to Buenos Aires. Multiple carriers offer this overnight flight from a number of US cities daily. From Buenos Aires you will be met by a Puelo Expeditions representative and then transfer about one and a half hours to the lodge. As always, Trek Safaris will be happy to assist with all travel arrangements.
