3-4 Shooting Days
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October
Just as Cordoba stands as the premier destination in the world for high-volume dove shooting, Guayascate stands as the premier hunting lodge in the Cordoba region. Guayascate’s breathtaking setting, incredible food and wine selection, spa and accommodating staff deliver such a high-level experience, many Trek clients hold an annual date to return to this special place, year after year.
Owing to the vision, values and family culture of Trek’s Cordoba partners, H&H Outfitters, you are always treated as honored guests at Guayascate. And once you return home, you’ll have a hard time deciding whether the experience of Guayascate or the astonishing dove numbers were the most memorable part of your adventure.
Your trip begins with an overnight flight from The U.S., arriving in Buenos Aires the following morning. Upon clearing customs in B.A., a Trek partner representative will meet you to assist with airport transfer for your flight to Cordoba. A time-saving private charter option is available as well for an additional cost.
You arrive in Cordoba today where a member from H&H Outfitters will be on hand to help with your bags and transfer you about 90 minutes to Guayascate Lodge. Everyone will be greeted with champagne then shown to their respective rooms. After stowing your gear and getting changed into hunting clothes, we will have a quick lunch then depart to the field for an afternoon shoot. Once everyone has been briefed and appointed bird boys for the hunt, shooting will start. Do not get overwhelmed at first as it is an amazing site seeing thousands of dove at one time. This will continue well into the afternoon until around dusk when shooting normally ends.
Once we transfer back to the lodge, everyone is welcome to schedule a massage and have the barman, Alejandro, mix your favorite libation. Shortly after cocktails, dinner will be served and this is always a highlight of the day at Guayascate. Chef Daniel will prepare his enjoyable meals consisting of many fine Argentine beefs and desserts presented with a formal culinary flair
The next three days are full hunting days with asado (local barbecue) in the fields each day. On the last day, you will have a morning hunt and settle up before saying your goodbyes, followed by a transfer to your return afternoon flight that will connect you to an overnight flight home to The States.
Guayascate boasts 18,000 square feet of pure luxury with ten expertly appointed rooms. The Lodge allows for group sizes to be small and intimate with singles or grow as large as twenty hunters with a two guest per room configuration. The lodge features a Spa with an infinity swimming pool, two large, heated Jacuzzi (inside and outside), a complete weight room and massage therapy to soothe those tired muscles after a day on the shooting fields. The Lodge staff has been trained to cater to your every need. Here everybody knows your name and how important you are. Our reputation is founded on customer satisfaction and having you back is as important as having you here.
The lodge sits on over 1,500 acres of the best crop rotations and roosting areas in Cordoba, giving a whole new meaning to hunting near the lodge. You will watch in awe as wave after wave of Eared Dove passes over your balcony. In addition to this property, Guayascate has an inventory of nearly a thousand square miles of available hunting lands assuring that every customer will have the ultimate Wingshooting experience.
A typical shooting day at Guayascate starts after a sumptuous breakfast, with departure to the fields by 8 AM. The shooting fields are carefully rotated and rested to assure maximum bird numbers. The driving distance to the fields is in our luxury 20 passenger van with air conditioning, refreshments and two-way radios. Each client shoots with their own experienced professional bird boy, who will act as a loader, retrieve downed birds and keep cool drinks ready. Shooting continues until noon, when the group gathers in a shady grove of trees, a casita built especially for field lunches or you may head back to the lodge for a traditional Argentine asado (barbecue) complemented with salads, gourmet desserts and fantastic wines. After lunch and an optional siesta, the shoot continues until approximately 6 PM. Upon returning to the lodge, relax with drinks and hearty hors d’oeuvres while preparing for dinner.
