A typical day of Argentina dove hunting
A typical Argentina dove hunting day starts around 6:30 when Viviana or Ines knock at your room door to wake you up and announce breakfast is ready.

Everyone is ready to go to the shooting fields in our modern vans and trucks and in a short ride or sometimes from the lodge you’re ready to shoot! You are assigned a birdboy who will be assisting you all times, bring cold drinks to your blind, celebrate your great shooting, load your gun if you wish, count your shells and hit birds and pick them up once your dove shooting is finished. Roberto and Marcelo, our professionally certified hunting guides, are taking care of every single detail regarding your Argentina dove hunting to make it an unforgettable experience for you. They also keep track of shells you shoot as well as of hit doves. You can take this shell and dove count sheet home at the end of your trip to show off a little and have proof of the greatest dove shooting ever!
After an exciting dove shoot in the morning, you’ll probably be looking forward to the world-famous Argentinean beef barbecue. We all go to a nice rustic gazebo and grill that we’ve especially built near the shooting fields around the largest roost. Our barbecue cook will have everything ready for you to enjoy our favorite meal ever, Argentinean beef barbecue with sausage, ribs, brisket or flank, fresh salads and the best Malbec wine. After dessert and nice chat over hunting, hammocks are waiting for you to relax only for about one hour, since another incredible afternoon dove shooting is on its way. After about a three-hour shooting, we are all ready to go back to La Camila Argentina dove hunting lodge. Some people go straight to the shower, some others relax around the beautiful gardens and swimming pool or get a comforting massage. Ines and Viviana invite you to have some drinks and snacks over the bar. Sausage, cheese, dove breasts in bacon, accompanied with excellent white wine or always cold Quilmes beer are just some of the appetizers and drinks you will find. Marcelo together with Cristian who is our maintenance man, take guns apart, clean them up, lubricate them and leave them ready to get into action for another awesome Argentina dove hunting on the following day. Another important staff member is Inés, our lodge manager and interpreter. She is ready to help and advise you at all times in every need you may have during your whole stay at La Camila Lodge.
Carina, our chef, will serve a homemade gourmet dinner, selecting fresh and natural ingredients. You’ll also taste the most delicious desserts, proudly made and presented, such as pears in red wine, caramel flambe banana pancakes, icecream cup with fruit salad, etc.. After dessert, it’s “Trophy time”, for the ones who’ve hit over 1,000 doves in a day! I give them their trophies, we take pictures over the fireplace, claps and congratulations in between, and then pictures are posted in our website 1,000 Dove Club section. Later on, after such an exciting day, you will maybe take a walk, watch the stars or smoke a cigar outside, and everybody is ready to go to bed and “sleep like babies” since you have to gather more energy for another incredible Argentina dove hunting day!
Hope you can experience all this yourself!!
