we are going to a new and highly-recommended Estancia in Salta,
With Pigeon in the mornings
and Dove in the afternoons, this promises to be an experience
that encompasses what we are all looking for: quantity, quality
and variety of spectacular Wing Shooting.
PIGEON AND DOVE
This is the only outfitter
in the area, so, unlike Cordoba, there is no real pressure
on the Pigeon and Dove population. There are two types of
pigeon: Spot-winged and Picazuro - these and the Eared Dove
flourish here in incredible numbers
Shooting takes place in a variety
of locations, near the roosts, on the edges of fields, next
to the river bottom and over water holes. Depending on the
conditions for pigeon, for example, you may be pass-shooting
or shooting over decoys.
On a typical day, you would leave the Estancia
for the shooting locations and shoot in the morning followed
by lunch, usually in the field: grilled steaks, sausages,
ribs, robust wines, green salads and fresh breads. After a
siesta or just a rest, you return to the fields for dove shooting
until the evening.
The Salta Lodge offers private
rooms, with all the charm of a Country Manor, but with modern
comfort and convenience. The dining is uniformly terrific
featuring the famous Argentina Beef, local specialties, Game
dishes and, of course, the wonderful Argentina wines. A professional
Massage Therapist is available to relax and reinvigorate tired
limbs and sore shoulders!
FOR THE NON-SHOOTER
Salta is unique in offering
a wide array of activities for the non-shooter, both near
the Estancia and in the City of Salta.
