Get ready for your Argentina Dove Hunt with this checklist!
Dove Hunting Checklist
Camouflage or caqui hunting clothes and hats.
Sweaters, long sleeve shirts, and polar fleece zip‐up tops especially during our winter from June to August. Layering is important. Depending on the time of year it can be 40F in the morning, then end up in the high 70’s and calm winds by the afternoon.
Lightweight rain suit and waterproof clothing from November to March.
Shoes: Lightweight or ankle‐height is all you need. Many shooters even wear sneakers.
Gaiters are recommended from November to March.
Comfortable clothes for relaxing around the lodge (jeans, tennis shoes, etc).
Shooting glasses, sunglasses, 30spf sunscreen or stronger, and Chap Stick.
Recoil reduction equipment: shoulder pads, Kevlar lined vests and EvoShield shirts. Lockable travel gun case (stainless steel or heavy duty fiberglass).
We have cleaning rods & patches; but please bring oil, choke tubes and accessories. Bring modified chokes, improved cylinders, or improved‐modified. Any gun cleaning equipment you might need.
Hearing protection: Earplugs.
Side carry shooting pouch for shells, or shell vest. Bird boys will load for you if you want.
Leather shooting gloves are recommended! Or you will have blisters.
All electricity is 220 in Argentina (European style). At the lodge we have converters for your 110 stuff like laptop computers, digital cameras, smart phones & tablets, electric razors, etc., but some hotels in Buenos Aires and airports do not.
Medication: it is a good idea, as when traveling anywhere, to take along medication for symptomatic relief.
