Ducks, Dove, Perdiz
Four shooting days
May, June, July
Trek is excited to introduce you to an exceptional new Argentinian mixed bag shooting experience— El Angel Lodge. Providing an intimate, awe-inspiring setting and lodge exclusivity for groups of just six shooters, El Angel delivers the excitement of a new adventure each morning and afternoon you set out for the field.
Our local partners, Hector De Bernardis and his daughter Gina, have infused their immense passion for hunting and Argentinian culture into differentiating El Angel as a welcome place for all. As part of a rapidly growing community of women hunters, Gina De Bernadis’ has helped mold El Angel into a destination where women can find empowerment, connection with nature, and a strong bond with fellow shooters.
Conveniently located just 2.5 hours from Buenos Aires, El Angel offers guests thrilling shooting opportunities for upland game (perdiz), waterfowl and the sensational dove hunting for which Argentina is renowned.
El Angel’s close proximity to Buenos Aires significantly reduces the travel time relative to that of most Argentinian mixed bag lodges. The most common way to reach El Angel is via an overnight flight from the United States, landing in Buenos Aires (B.A.) the following morning.
A Trek partner representative will meet you at the airport for the 2.5 hour transfer to the lodge. After lunch and a siesta, you’ll be taking aim at clouds of doves or flushing perdiz your very first day in Argentina.
The following three days are full hunting days, with ducks in the morning, a break for lunch and doves or perdiz in the afternoon. On your final day in Argentina, you’ll enjoy a morning duck hunt before packing up to head back to B.A. to catch your return flight to the U.S.
Each morning at El Angel begins with a wake-up knock at your door. Fresh-brewed coffee and a hearty breakfast awaits prior to your departure to the duck blinds.
You will have the opportunity to harvest some of the most sought after species of ducks in Argentina, including the country’s signature duck, the rosy-billed pochard. Once your group reaches its limit, your guide team will pack up and take you back to the lodge for lunch and some time to recharge.
After lunch, you’ll gear up and head out to shoot dove or perdiz. Most of the dove shooting is pass or roost shooting this time of year.
You can expect to shoot around 500 shells per afternoon while dove hunting. Keep your eyes peeled; they do have a decent amount of pigeons mixed in with the doves.
Perdiz shooting is prime in this area due to the amount of water present, offering great habitat. Perdiz hunting is similar to quail hunting. We shoot over pointing dogs, with a limit of six per day, and it usually takes an hour and a half or so to limit out.
El Angel conveys a warm, authentic Argentinian feel that is representative of the rich legacy of the De Bernadis family.
The lodge comprises eight impressive bedrooms with private ensuite baths. While the rooms are set up as singles for smaller groups, each can be converted into a double occupancy accommodation and two rooms can offer triple occupancy accommodation for larger groups and families with children.
El Angel’s swimming pool, just steps away from the lodge, invites you to take a plunge to cool off after a thrilling day in the field. Other features include the lodge’s rustic bar, a spacious covered patio and a fire pit, all perfect spots for sipping cocktails and connecting with your fellow adventurers.
