I have been Argentina dove shooting with JJCaceria since about 2006 and this May 2014 trip is my 13th trip with him.

I have full confidence that the hospitality will be excellent, the food will be superb, the rooms will be clean and there will always be plenty of doves. I have never considered going with another outfitter Allen Thomas

May 2014, Dublin, Georgia, USA.

JJ, thank you so much for such a wonderful Argentina dove hunting trip. All of us had a great time. Your service was beyond belief and you can’t really appreciate the number of doves until you see the sunrise over the field. Your staff was tremendous. The whole crew are planning on a 2016 return. Again, all I can say is: simply amazing!! Jim DeVos

April 2014, Newbury Park, California, USA.

I just wanted to thank you again for all the help in setting up the shoot. We all had a wonderful time. It could not have been better. Your house and field staff could not have treated us any better, they made all of us feel special, and you Ines is a gem. Thanks, JJ, for getting the 28 gauge o/u shot gun for me, I really appreciate that you did that for me.

Where we hunt:

We guarantee 1,000 to 2,000 rounds a day in all our dove shooting fields that are located 50 miles east from Cordoba Airport, Argentina. The area provides one of the finest Argentina dove hunting areas in the world with tremendous bird populations. The flight of the doves back and forth between the fields is virtually non-stop and provides challenging sporting shooting. The terrain consists of flat grain fields mixed with patches of trees, providing ideal roosting areas next to food-rich fields of wheat, sorghum, milo, corn, soybean, sunflower, peanuts and other crops. There is just one little problem, we’ve got too many doves!

Lodging facilities:

Our guests enjoy very much our beautiful lodge that has been remodeled and especially decorated to create just the right atmosphere for an Argentina dove hunting lodge. Each of the 11 double bedrooms has its own private bathroom, air conditioning, heating and guests can enjoy the quiet fire that burns every evening in the dining room’s fireplace.

Outside, the beautiful gardens invite guests to take a walk around the swimming pool, our beautiful flower plants and trees and the singing of birds.

Other Activities

Cordoba is a province with a lot of history. Guests can visit the city and take a special tour to know the National University, the oldest university in South America. The missions founded by Jesuits in the late 1600s are also very interesting to visit. The old Jesuit “estancias” have recently been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Cordoba’s hills and the small towns located near the mountains are other attractions for tourists. The town of Villa General Belgrano, in particular, is a very beautiful destination if you are visiting Cordoba. This town has an exquisite European flavor since it was there where Europeans from Germany, Switzerland and Italy first settled in the area and founded this European village in the heart of Argentina. Our guests may also enjoy other activities such as horseback riding or shopping in town, especially for fine leather and silver products.

Why Arroyito Got To Have The Largest Population of Doves in The World

  By Jose Luis Grasso. Before referring to Dove hunting in Argentina, I’d like to explain why millions of eared doves live on a permanent basis in the province of Cordoba. About 25 years ago, 80% of Cordoba land was covered with woodlands full of native trees from the area such as quebracho, carob, tala, piquillin and chañar trees, to name a few. This was an area where agriculture was not the main countryside industry. The main business in those years was cattle raising, developed in two ways: cattle raising in the north and dairy farming in the east, Arroyito area. At that time, farmers grew corn or sorghum in reduced spaces, simply to feed the cattle. Over the years, agricultural activities were encouraged in the area, due mainly to the richness of the soil, good rainfall and a temperate climate. As a result, these large woodland extensions were cleared and once the land was cleared and small grains were planted the dove population exploded, as it still does. At that moment, farmers and landowners did not realize they were creating the perfect habitat for Argentina dove hunting and, more specifically, eared doves to reproduce massively. In a short time, doves also became a serious problem for farmers. The huge grey clouds of doves covered the fields in such a way that they created great damage to the crops and were considered a nuisance. They were fought against in several ways, with no great results. Instead, year after year, they increased their volume in inestimable proportions. In addition, the clearance continued and formed two big areas which eared doves chose... read more

Dove hunting tips by JJ

  Hi, my name is JJ and I’d like to give you some pieces of advice for you to have an unmatchable Argentina dove hunting hard to forget, that will last in your memory for the rest of your life. Once you’ve decided on your Argentina dove hunting trip, you’ll have millions of doves to shoot with granted success, but taking into account my advice you’ll enhance greatly your dove hunting adventure. After 15 years’ experience as a dove hunting outfitter and having hosted over 8,000 hunters, I’m able to conclude that the Argentina dove hunting is something that needs to be lived in order to experience yourself the unbelievable volume of doves we have in Argentina, where we usually shoot a box of 25 shells every three minutes. Practice Practice makes perfect so before coming for an incredible Argentina dove hunting, it would be a good idea to do some shooting at home. Of course you won’t feel the same emotion of the high dove numbers we’ve got in Argentina, but this practice will be very useful to improve your shooting ability. Another good option is to do some clay shooting with spots very similar to the ones for dove hunting in Argentina. Guns and shells It’s very important to choose the shotgun caliber. In my opinion, the best is a 20 gauge shotgun loaded with 7/8 oz or also a 28 gauge with 3/4 oz. A 410 gauge shotgun is a good caliber too, but in Argentina we only have 410 shells of 2 inches loaded with 2/4 oz., and I consider them a little weak, so... read more

Dove hunting testimonies

Todd Lantrip – July 2013 – Spring, Texas, USA. “Time sure does fly. This was my 5th trip and everything is still great. I always say that “This is a once in a lifetime trip that I need to again and again”. I don’t recall seeing this many doves before. My shoulder is still a little sore after killing over 4000 birds in last few days. Was great to see so many other hunters each reaching the 1000 and 1500 doves club. I saw a lot of self-confidence gained by these hunters. I remember 1st day when they said it would never happen. You can now see their smiling faces on your website. As usual, I gained a few pounds from all that great food. Those ladies sure take care of the hunters. Logistics worked perfect even for the very early flights. Ines would not leave until the airline confirmed everything to her about my departure. She was insistent about doing this. Juan Carlos and Roberto were great drivers and guides. Marcelo had everything under control with all the Dove and Pigeon hunt. Those pigeons are a blast. Like shooting ducks over dry land. Franco is doing great job shooting those personal DVD’s to take home. I highly recommend every hunter sign up for that. Pictures are great but video is  awesome. Thanks for having us again and look forward to a combo hunt with Ducks next year. Take Care”   Tiggy Clayton, September 2012 – New Zealand. “A brief note to thank you and your team for the fantastic week we had as your guests. The whole dove hunting experience exceeded all expectations... read more
