The Shooting

www.fronterawingshooting.com

Cordoba is considered the pigeon shooting capital of the world. The 50 square mile radius around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 5 million pigeons. The lodge enjoys around 20 shooting fields all within a scenic drive through the region. The program generally starts at 8:00 AM with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to the shoot. In the field you will be assigned a bird-boy, who will provide you with shot shells, refreshments, direct you to your shooting stand and load your gun. Depending on the time of the year, you will shoot until noon when you will be treated to an incredible traditional barbeque lunch at the lodge, tasting some of Argentina’s wonderful beef and the exclusive wine. Afternoon begins at around 2 or 2.30, and continues until 5 or 6 when you will return to the lodge for cocktails at the wine cellar and an early dinner. We ensure one freshly built blind for each hunter. Decoys are strategically deployed around the blinds and at a suitable distance. Wild pigeons are large and fast, which makes calculating speed a little bit deceptive. Staying hidden and still in a good blind is the key to success.
