High Volume Doves in Argentina

Over the course of many years, Cordoba has established a reputation for being the best location in the world for hunting doves. Everyone that visits Cordoba is amazed at the sheer numbers and flock sizes for high-volume dove hunting. In addition to that, there are no bag limit restrictions.

When it comes to dove hunting in Cordoba, Argentina, it is often said that you have to see it to believe it. Until you’ve experienced the high-volume dove hunting that we have to offer, it is impossible to fully comprehend. The sheer volume of birds can be both dizzying and awe-inspiring at the same time for first time visitors.

Our Lodge is located 15 minutes from the largest dove roost in Cordoba, the Macha roost. The dove population in Macha has been estimated to be over 20 million and that number keeps increasing year after year.
While guest hunters come from far and wide for the high-volume doves we have in the area, many of them also come for the challenge of shooting our fast and high altitude flying birds.

With an estimated dove population topping over 50 million, with no bag limits and a season open year-round, Cordoba is the world’s most exclusive and revered dove hunting destination.

Why are there so many doves in Cordoba?

The golden eared dove is hunted in Cordoba. While this dove shares some qualities with doves in the northern hemisphere, it is distinct in a number of ways. First and foremost, the golden eared dove reproduces an amazing 5 to 6 times per year with 2 to 3 eggs per nest. With Cordoba serving as one of South America's bread baskets, sprawling farms and established irrigation provide the dove with an ideal habitat abundant with food and water. In fact, the habitat is so well-suited for the birds that these doves don't even bother to migrate, making for incredible high-volume dove hunting year-round.

How many doveS can I expect to shoot each day?

More than 30 years ago, the Argentinian Government designated the golden eared dove as an official "pest" due to the extraordinary damage these birds cause to crops. High-volume dove hunting is encouraged as it has proven to help farmers better maintain their crops and protect their harvests. There are no bag limits in Argentina, so the number of birds a hunter shoots is up to his or her shooting appetite and ability. Some hunters are quite content shooting a few hundred shells each day and others will aim to shoot a few thousand... it is entirely up to the individual.
