Uruguay Perdiz & Dove Hunting
Estancia Ninette has positively the best perdiz and closest high volume dove shooting of any lodge we have as you can literally walk out the door and start hunting! Hector Sarasola is extremely proud of his Brittany pointers and his enchanting Estancia Ninette will have you never wanting to leave.
The dove hunting is year round and with a major roost literally next door they always have great dove shooting within a short 15 minute drive, or you could always walk. The best time for strictly dove shooting would be their spring from September through March and for combination hunts of perdiz hunting mixed with doves May through July are truly excellent. Uruguay has without a doubt the best perdiz hunting that South America has to offer. Situated above the Rio Negro, Ninette also offers dorado fishing for those of you who get tired of all the shooting and would like to try their luck at catching the famed golden dorado.
Each Uruguay perdize and dove hunting trip is a seven day, six night adventure, with four total days of hunting. The trip begins with a morning arrival into Montevideo, Uruguay. Hector or one of his staff will meet the group and assist you through customs. You will then drive about three hours to Estancia Ninette, where you will hunt dove that afternoon. The next three days will be full days of hunting, with doves early morning, perdiz late mornings, and doves again in the afternoon. The last morning, you will hunt doves and perdiz before returning to Montevideo, where you will catch your overnight flight back to The States.
The Perdiz hunting around La Ninette is amazing. Every two hunters will have a guide and dog, and you can expect to flush 30-50 perdiz each morning in 2 hours of easy walking. The limits on perdiz are liberal as well. The dove hunting in the afternoons is high volume. You can expect to fire 20-40 boxes in a few hours, and they have several roosts that are close by Ninette. The trip is seven days, six nights with four days of hunting. Also, the possibility of a pigeon or duck hunt can be arranged based on the concentration of birds at the time of the hunt.
Estancia La Ninette is the only hunting lodge in Uruguay built especially for hunters. The lodge has eight bedrooms, all with baths, a large living room with a fireplace that overlooks the Rio Negro, and a very nice indoor barbecue room that usually becomes the main hang out. Meals will feature beef, chicken, game, pastas, salads and fine Uruguayan wines so you will not leave hungry.
