Cordoba is located in the very heart of the of Argentina – a wing-shooters dream come true – it’s a place where doves literally fly all day and you can dove hunt in Argentina year-round. The Eared Dove of Argentina is an amazing little propagator – roosts can easily have a population of 20 million doves – that’s one roost! South American Dove shooting at it's finest! True High volume doves hunting!
A customer of ours said it best, “there was never a time that I had a gun in my hand that I couldn’t have taken a shot if I had wanted to, the entire day.” -- J. Twyman
That’s Cordoba Dove hunting, in a nutshell.
You can shoot all you want and then some! All 365 days of the year! As popular as Cordoba is, there are options; and competition among outfitters is fierce. One roost might have three lodges shooting off of it while another might only have one. Many dove hunting estancias say they have the best this, or the best that…the shortest drives to the fields, the cheapest shells, the best food, etc. Many of them do have something different to offer, many don’t.
Why don't we have one outfitter and prices?
Cordoba has alot of options, and no one option is going to suit everyone of our customers needs. Making our trips truely customizable, we can work with any number of hunting lodges to make sure you get the right trip for you!
A good price range would be $3,500 - $5,000.00

There are two common ways of going into Cordoba, either through Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires.
The Santiago option is normally what we recommend for groups who have little interest in Buenos Aires, and have been to Cordoba. Santiago also has flights to and from Mendoza making it very easy to pair your Cordoba dove hunt with a couple days of wine tours in Mendoza. The Flight from most Southern U.S. airports is around 12 hours, upon arrival in Santiago you'll switch to your Cordoba Gate and DO NOT have to clear customs until you arrive in Cordoba.
The Buenos Aires option works great for groups wanting to tour the city, or have some time to kill. Buenos Aires works with two airports and most flights for Cordoba depart from Newberry Airport (the domestic), some flights do leave Eieza Airport (the international) with continuation onto Cordoba. Depending on the scheduling, gates, and tickets. You may have to clear customs to continue on, other times you can fly into Cordoba and clear customs there.
If your ticket has you departing out of Newberry Airport, you will have to cross the city the same day as arrival. This increases the risks to getting to the lodge on time, and is why we almost always recommend arriving into Buenos Aires and staying a night then departing from Newberry the next day. We have some excellent transfer agents and tour operators in Buenos Aires, who offer wonderful side trips. Including, restaurants, tango shows, museums, and many more of the cultural attractions that are in B.A.
IWhen you travel with Detail Company Adventures, we have all this planned out for you. You know long before you arrive when, where, why, and how, long before you depart for Cordoba. DCA will be more than happy to arrange your flights for you and has been getting people in and out of Cordoba since the early 80's!
The Cordoba dove hunt is like nothing most hunters have ever seen. If you have not been to South America, all we can say is; you have to see it to believe it. Thousands of doves can be shot in a day, with the Cordoba record being around 12,000+! When Shooting in Cordoba, your overall costs lies in the shell bill and not so much in the daily rate. Depending on which lodge you choose, the terrain can vary from flat to very steep. Most hunting is done on the flight paths from the roost to the agriculture fields. Several lodges in Cordoba are located right next to or very close to the roost and fly-ways. Some are not.
Shooting is conducted from a blind or natural brush, with a bird boy at your side to load your gun. Which they can do so smoothy that you need to keep track of your boxes, as a good bird boy can make the shooting go by very fast. Cordoba Dove Hunting is world renowned for a reason, the shooting should be non-stop. Normally drives to the fields are short, allowing for more shooting time in the day. We represent only two lodges where one of the fields is a walk out the back door.
To experience true high-volume shooting, with a level of refinement rarely seen elsewhere, it’s hard to beat the dove hunting lodges of Cordoba. We focus on the things that matter, so you don’t have to!
