Wing Hunting

Escondido Lodge

There’s a new pigeon and dove hunting lodge in Cordoba, and Trek International Safaris, along with our partners H&H Outftters invites you to be among the very first to experience the excitement of Escondido.

Just beyond the Sierras de Cordoba, lies thousands of acres of land dotted with irrigation pivots watering fields of peanuts, soybeans, and corn. March through August, these crops offer an expansive food source for migrating pigeon and resident eared dove.

Escondido Lodge is a result of Trek and H&H Outfitters ongoing commitment to innovation to optimize our wingshooting clients’ experience. Pigeon hunting here is an excitement-filled experience; you’ll shoot from blinds as large birds drop down onto decoys set up by your
bird boy.

The dove hunting is a typical Cordoba high-volume, no limit experience. Our bird boys will keep your guns loaded for action all day.

While this area has been on Trek’s radar for years, we did not previously send our clients there due to increased travel time and lack of high-level accommodations. Now, with the recent acquisition by H&H Outfitters of a private charter plane and the construction of this new lodge, it’s game on for Escondido!

H&H will deliver its renowned attention to detail and unmatched service to an already established work ethic, while Trek Safaris will manage your travel arrangements with the highest level of commitment, as we have since 1973.

The Outfitter

The outfitter for Guayascate are brothers Alex and Zeke Hayes forming the reputable H&H Outfitters who along with Trek has offered the best dove shooting trips in Cordoba for over 25 years. Trek Safaris is proud to partner with H&H to promote this exciting new property that will revolutionize the upscale shooting market for many years to come. It is through their experiences of owning and operating four other deluxe lodges in Cordoba that inspired them to create this wonderful new masterpiece.

The Hunting

It is estimated that there are over 35 million eared dove in the Cordoba Province and climbing. Due to its rich agriculture and lack of natural predators, the dove here are actually a pest to the farmers and the general populace so hunters are a welcome sight to the region. It is doubtful you will ever encounter so many dove in a single moment, hour or day than what you will see here in the Piquillin trees where the eared dove roosts. In fact, the property at Guayascate is actually full of these Piquillin roosts making drives to the fields a matter of minutes in most cases. Unless you request it, you will not shoot the same field twice. Hunting season is year-round and we are offering three and four-day hunts.

The Accommodations

Guayascate is 18,000 square feet of pure luxury with ten expertly appointed rooms that allow group sizes to be small and intimate with single rooms or double up for as much fun as you wish. The exterior design of local Mora rock and Quebracho hardwoods contrasts smartly with the magic of one of the best interior designers in Buenos Aires who left her touches of contemporary patterns of leather, tapestries and local artifacts throughout the lodge. With huge windows and doors framed in beautiful Quebracho, the sunlight is your friend in most areas of the lodge and highlights the cleanest of looks. So you just want to relax? Well, the lodge features an infinity swimming pool with large fold-out chairs, two spacious Jacuzzi’s (inside and outside), full spa with massage appointments, a library complete with contemporary readings and a custom espresso machine with international coffees. If you like to be inspired by culinary delights, the chef at Guayascate is one of Buenos Aires finest and will offer both local an international cuisine accompanied by the fine South America reds and whites in the lodge’s cellar. No matter whether you choose to be outside in one of the well-furnished verandas taking in the sunset, or inside on a cool day soaking up the warmth of the huge stone fireplace, Guayascate is the ultimate comfort.
