Exciting Hunting and Fishing Destinations EDITION 2017
the b25 is one of the best game guns in the world. question is, how good are you?
Dylan Williams, Founder, the Royal Berkshire Shooting School, with the legendary Handmade B25. jmbrowningcollection.com
Foreword of the founder We are celebrating with this edition 10 years existence of the hunting and fishing guide by Magic Safari Lodges. During all those years we have selected destinations of which we know they provide quality in game as well as in comfort. But we have also been strong advocates of conservation, hunting ethics and local community involvement especially in Africa. Nevertheless it looks like Western Governments relentlessly attempt to shut down big game hunting in Africa under the cover of conservation. They seem to put more value on the lives of animals than they would of humans in Africa. They claim that without their efforts these animals do not stand a chance. The consequence of shutting down big game hunting in Africa would be disastrous not only for the animals, but even more disastrous for humans. When one looks at areas where hunting is no longer allowed, such as Kenya, the results speak for themselves.
Outside of national parks, animal population has dramatically declined. This decline has impacts throughout the entire food chain and in the end is more destructive then helpful. Hunting brings a positive impact to the resident of rural African communities where the land is harsh and where it is difficult to make a living from agriculture. It is a source of income, provides jobs in hunting related tourism and brings money to communities for education of their children. If the wildlife population would not have an economic value then it would be seen as either a nuisance or a threat. I think Africa deserves the support of the hunting community worldwide and I plead that we actively participate in all initiatives taken by our hunting organizations to counter the anti-hunting extremist ideologists who are trying to make occupation as morally repugnant in the eyes of the general public.

Scandinavian Pro Hunters Unique Geese shooting In Skåne, we offer fantastic goose hunting on and around our hunting lodge Markie Hage. The best conditions for these hunts are often difficult to predict, but when the big migration of birds are coming to our areas we are then normally seeing ten thousands of geese in a day, so those who are lucky enough to be able to participate may be rewarded with the goose hunt of their lives. There are no bag limit so every year we are having days with 200 plus geese in a day! World class Roebucks in Skane, South Sweden It is no coincidence that Swedish Roebuck are classified as the most beautiful buck in the world. Tall, slender, and symmetric, they will provide you with an awesome trophy that will most certainly find a prominent spot in your home. Scandinavian Prohunters have the best privately owned properties in the Southern part of Sweden / Skane where we every year shoot big gold medal bucks. The hunt is out from our charming hunting lodge.
Wildboar Hunting France Located in the Sologne area, close to the Chambord castle, the company Wildboar Hunting France operates in one of the finest private estate where more than 600 wildboars are shot per season. Jean Philippe Bourgneuf will guide the hunters for stalking tuskers and organize driven parties from 5 to 15 hunters. Thanks to the Browning Partner Lodges program offering to use some Maral rifles in 30-06 caliber to train first on running target before going hunting. Some 12-bore over and under 725 are also available to shoot Mallards or for sporting training on the private shooting ground of the estate. Welcome to hunt the french wildboars with Browning weapons.
Graet Spanish Hunts
Unique in Europe, Sabournac is a private estate which has been organizing mallard duck hunting for 25 years. This hunt both surprises and appeals to hunters who like to shoot several hundred cartridges at high flying mallards.
The red-legged partridge is a endemic to Spain considered the most sporting and challenging bird in the world?by hunters due to its beauty, audacity and fast and erratic flight. The driven partridge shoot is a shooting style with a long and deeply rooted tradition in Spain, which allows the hunter to enjoy the red-legged partridge in a far more challenging way, since the speed and height reached are unbeatable, putting more than one expert wing shooter to the test.
Sabournac offers only high quality, exclusive hunting organized and customized to meet your specific demands. The hunting estate is open from the first September to January 31 and can be booked for a private hunting trip of 2 to 8 hunters. As a “Browning Partner Lodges”, several guns are available on the estate. This free service provides an opportunity to shoot with topquality shotguns, as well as to avoid the hassle of travelling by air with a gun. Winchester cartridges are available on site for 12, 16 and 20 bore guns.
Our shoots are some of the best and most famous in the country. Groups of 3 to 10 guns usually bag around 1,000 birds per day or even double that amount depending on their shooting skills.
The estate is 60 km Est from Toulouse International Airport with direct flights from most European capitals and 25 km from CastresMazamet Airport where all private planes can land.
Thanks to the wide range of estates we manage and their diverse and beautiful landscapes we are able to offer some of the most spectacular and challenging drives to be found in Spain. Featuring birds with fast and erratic flight, both low and high flying, we can offer drives that allow hunters to enjoy very varied and challenging shoots. A pair of 12 and 20 bore double-barrel matched shot

Magnus i. Improved excellence. Perfection must be built into even the tiniest details. This is why we have collaborated with Leica riflescope users on the numerous innovative and practical details of our Magnus i models – and have now perfected an already excellent product. The new, tool-free, turret scale zeroing offers significant advantages when sighting-in, and the diameter of the already extremely crisp, bright red dot has been further reduced for even better long-range capability. The illumination system has been revised to considerably reduce battery drain, and changing batteries is easier than ever before. All of which gives you the freedom to concentrate on what’s essential: safe, precise shots and a per fect hunting experience.

K3 EXTREM SINGLE-SHOT RIFLE
Single shot rifles are usually something for purists: One barrel, one bullet, one locking system – that really is all you need for proper hunting. The proof, that this minimalistic concept can be reduced even more is provided by the Merkel K3 Extrem. Whoever holds this drop single shot rifle for the first time, can hardly believe it: It is almost impossible to make a gun more lightweight and easy to handle. These 92 centimeter long guns only weigh 2,4 kilos – however they are still fully functional hunting rifles. The calibre range: from 6,5x57R over the 308 Win. all the way to the 8x75IRS. Finest craftsmanship – for maximum accuracy.

Owner: Kursat & Temir Ekenler WildHunting in Turkey is owned and managed by the Ekenler Family and currently run by two brothers, Kürşat and Temir. They are both extremely keen young hunters and have hunted extensively throughout Turkey and abroad. The Ekenler family has been landowners in Tarsus, Cukurova area for more than 300 years. Hunting is a family tradition, proudly passed from father to son and finally to us. We have always had a passion for the wild; This has been supported by their father who took Temir and Kürşat with him to many hunts all over the world. With some of the world’s finest species on our doorstep, we have naturally concentrated on big game hunting. WildHunting offers a total of 6 speacies of big game, which are natively found only on Turkish hunting land, this makes the hunting unique! 1) Anatolian Bezoar Ibex 4) Anatolian Red Deer
2) Anatolian Konya Sheep 5) Anatolian Urfa Gazelle
3) Anatolian Chamois 6) Anatolian Wild Boar
Our family has controlled the shooting in large areas of the Taurus Mountains for generations. We therefore operate as a private family hunting estate, rather than an agent buying from different concessions all over the region. As a result, we have controlled, conserved and developed our areas in a manner that we believe to be unique in the whole country. This approach is key to our way of maintaining the highest standards in everything we do. Anatolian Bezoar Ibex: is a very popular big game of our mountains and has a very special reputation amongst hunters from around the World and a very challenging and special hunt for us. We have managed to protect and control the game by careful selective shooting and are proud to say that we have some of Turkey’s finest trophy Ibex hunting – with trophies that most can only dream about. We have averaged 44’’(110cm) over the past hunting years and harvest more than a few trophies between 48’’ – 52’’(120-130cm). We have also been living this dream of ethical, sporting hunting, conserving both the game and our wonderful natural environment, for ourselves, our clients and our guests, now and in the future. Anatolian Wild Boar: is the most common big game and a very exciting hunt for our hunting guests; since Turkey produces the biggest boars in the World with body size exceeding 200-250kg and tusks measuring between 24-30cm. We have been organizing and carrying out hunts for our guests, with a very experienced and trained team for over 20 years. We do not over promise, over sell or over hunt. Our family reputation is far too important for that. This experience, applied to the management of our home estates, equips us to provide you with the hunting trip of a lifetime. OUR EXTENSIVE WORLDWIDE HUNTING EXPERIENCE MEANS THAT; WE SEE THE TRIP FROM A CLIENTS EYES, WHICH WE THINK IS VITAL! Please visit our website and write Temir or Kursat an e-mail to start exploring your next hunting adventure with WildHunting in TURKEY!

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Dawid Muller Manager: Dawid Muller Daggaboy Hunting Safaris
Owned and operated by Dawid Muller, a well-known Namibian professional hunter who has been active in the hunting industry for more than 30 years, Daggaboy Hunting Safaris offers dangerous as well as plains game hunting opportunities on their exclusively owned hunting areas in Namibia. Hunts for dangerous game are conducted on their exclusively operated conservancy in the Caprivi region, bordering the Mamili National Park in the south and the Mdumu National Park on the northern side. Hunts for plains game take place in an open (no high fences) area of over 40 000ha in the Khomas Hochland area in central Namibia. The plains game hunting area being only 60km south-west of Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, means that you will arrive at your hunting destination within an hour’s drive from the Hosea Kutako International Airport. Accommodation is offered in five luxurious double rooms in the hunter’s wing next to the colonial-style farmhouse on Dawid’s ranch, with en suite bathrooms and wireless access to Internet. Up in the Caprivi the accommodation is in en suite bungalows or tents (client’s choice) with running hot and cold water. Excellent food, complimentary beverages, alcoholic drinks as well as a daily laundry service is included in both areas. Daggaboy Hunting Safaris endorses the practice of ‘fair chase’ in hunting, so although 4x4 vehicles are used in the initial process of locating the game in both areas, all hunts and possible follow-ups are thereafter done on foot. Passion for what he does, and personal attention to every detail of your hunt and stay is what Dawid is known for to which the very high percentage of return hunters to Daggaboy Hunting Safaris is a testimony. So, you might arrive as a client, but you will definitely leave as a friend.

SOUTH AFRICA Owner: K&K Premium Fort Governor´s Estate - The thrill of the chase in the spirit of the colonial safari Hunting as it was in colonial times is the experience that awaits you at Fort Governors Estate. The Estate and the surrounding area boasts a rich hunting history that stretches back into ancient times. The San people traversed this magnificent landscape, harvesting the plentiful game species that are endemic to the area. Their beautiful cave paintings still exist here as an ode to their way of life, living in harmony with nature. Today, this vast 6,700-hectare wild game reserve is an amalgamation of four former estates. In recent years, this well established reserve has been returned to its former glory to create a perfect natural wilderness supporting an outstanding population of healthy game. An incredible twenty-seven different game species can be hunted on Fort Governors Estate - which is also highly regarded internationally for its extraordinary population of the iconic Kudu. Four diverse ecosystems and an exceptional variety of plants and trees make up this abundantly nourishing environment – a key contributor to the magnificent game population found on the estate. The spectacular valleys are home to pristine Fish River Valley Bushveld, the rolling hills flowing out onto lush grassland plains and the dramatic plunging cliff faces provide the ideal habitat for many species. Careful management of the four distinct habitats and the animals within them, ensures that the estate remains ecologically balanced. Sustainability is the key Hunting at Fort Governors Estate incorporates sustainable game management and fair chase hunting. You will hunt only for mature old trophies in the traditional way – walking and stalking. You won’t find any hunters shooting from a truck or simply waiting for game at waterholes. Stalking for the wiliest of old trophy animals in this magnificent landscape is certainly challenging, but you will be rewarded with an extraordinary hunting experience in the traditional African way, and you will be afforded an unforgettable impression of this spectacular landscape and diversity of game. The most intense challenge is the buffalo hunt in the bushveld. Stalking through valley thickets in dense bush until you encounter a buffalo face-to-face is an experience of a lifetime and a moment you will never forget. An epic hunting safari adventure in the land of the ancient San is an experience that will remain with you forever! Combine a family vacation with a hunting adventure? The ideal destination Ideally situated near Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, Fort Governors Estate is a dream holiday destination. Located 40minutes drive from the pristine sandy beaches of the Sunshine Coast, the seaside town of Port Alfred is the heart of the Sunshine Coast, and boasts an elegant marina, the historic Royal Port Alfred Golf Club, modern shopping malls and quaint curio shops. A number of deep-sea fishing , and whale and dolphin watching tour operators can also be found here. The Addo Elephant National Park and the luxurious 5* Shamwari Game Reserve are also located within easy driving distance, where you can add a “Big5 Experience” to your safari. Grahamstown with its colonial architecture, and the seaside city of Port Elizabeth are both rich in their historical buildings, monuments and museums. Grahamstown is also an educational and artistic hub, home to the prestigious Rhodes university, excellent private schools and host city to the annual National Arts Festival. Bring your loved ones and share the safari adventure of a lifetime in the unforgettable Eastern Cape.

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Hunt & Fish Namibia Namibia has the largest diversity of biotopes in all of Africa, ranging from deserts such as the Kalahari and the world’s oldest, the Namib Desert, to red-coloured dunes (Sossusvlei) and sandy beaches along the Skeleton Coast or then again the subtropical marshes between the Okavango and the Zambezi. Twenty years of experience have taught us that all our guests like to discover all the different parts of this magical country, either by hunting or fishing in the different places. Therefore we offer you two hunting and two fishing destinations which we own or operate. Several combinations are possible, depending on the season, your availability and your mode of transport, all of which we would be more than happy to study together with you.

The southern border of Etosha National Park is well-known to hunters for its great variety of plains game. Our privately owned land covers a diverse landscape consisting of Mopani forests, dry river beds, acacia woodlands, plains, mountains, valleys and pans. You can hunt exceptional trophies and experience the magic of real hunting. Gold medals can be obtained for gemsbok, kudu and mountain zebra. The Damara dik-dik and the black-faced impala are even exclusive to this area. Leopards and cheetahs are considered the jewels of Etosha. We have three types of accommodations, each giving you different experiences on your safari. One way is using our African safari lodge with all the five-star amenities typical to the Southern African triangle and with an uninterrupted view of the surrounding valleys and plains. For a more typical hunting atmosphere, we use a camp with several thatched rondawels, decorated with local artwork and en suite bathrooms. For those nostalgic for an ‘Out of Africa’ atmosphere, we offer a live version in the tented camp where as the night falls the bush comes alive. More to the west lies the Damaraland concession. As no fixed settlements are allowed, we use our 4x4 and tents to set up flycamps in a moonlike environment. All meals are served around a crackling fire under the clear African sky or under thatch in the central lapa, with unique game dishes. On the day you wish to take a rest from hunting, it is possible to go for a game drive in Etosha National Park or simply relax around the swimming pool and the spa of the main lodge.
AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Hunt & Fish Namibia PO Box 90538 Hunting the Kalahari dunes and Namib Desert South of Windhoek we own two hunting territories, each very representative of their specific biotopes. The Kalahari property features a combination of 74 sequential red sand dunes with the equivalent number of valleys stretching each over a kilometre wide. It is an amazing sensation to hunt in such countryside, as each dune hides a new spectacle of animals grazing in the next valleys. Here you can hunt mostly grazers such as springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest, all medal quality. Again accommodation can be provided in three different types of camps: the luxurious safari lodge with five-star facilities such as pool, spa and restaurant; the comfortable bungalow of the hunting camp with its magic lapa and boma; or finally, real bush life in a tented camp.

A few hours westward, we have our Namib desert property, which again is a totally different view from the Kalahari. Montanalike grass plains contrast with the red hills, which seem imported from Arizona. Hunting tactics change 100%, since here the hunter and the animals have little space to hide. So far our accommodation is in our dune hotel near Sossusvlei, 40 minutes away, from which we organise fly-camps on the property. All game here is natural resident game. Whatâ€™s the best season for hunting? There is no good, better or best time. There is only a period that is less comfortable because of high temperatures and a period less favourable to hunting. Therefore, we suggest:

AFRICA NAMIBIA Owner: Classified Fishing the legendary Skeleton Coast Set in the magical town of Henties Baai, on the edge of the Namib Desert, Fisherman’s Guesthouse welcomes fishermen and tourists alike. The lodge is the ultimate destination from which to experience the shore angling adventure of a lifetime. This beautiful lodge offers unforgettable accommodation a mere 200 metres from the beach. Listen to the sea, enjoy fresh air and cool evenings. Experience the different recipes for the catch of the day, accompanied by a glass of local wine. The nine comfortable rooms promise a good night’s sleep before the big fishing day. Renier De Villiers, our professional fisherman, will take you out on an unforgettable angling adventure. The once-in-a-lifetime experience is to catch a bronze copper shark (all the way up to 189 kg) from the sandy beach. You do not need to be an expert though, but let’s just say that the size of your shark will be determined by your patience and wisdom during this fight and not by strength or technique. Once the shark has been hooked, the pro will guide you on how to haul the catch in. If you want to change to edible fish for a day, you can catch big cobs as well as some locals, such as steenbras, galjoen or snoek. For the youngsters, the smaller sharks such as spotted gully shark are a good initiation before tackling the real stuff. Other activities our team performs are desert tours in 4x4, dune races on quads or shopping in Swakopmund and its harbour Walvis Baai.

Fishing the mighty Zambezi and the mysterious Okavango There are different ways to discover the unspoiled beauty of the Caprivi strip, locked-in between the Okavango and Zambezi rivers. They provide the perfect backdrop for some of the most unforgettable fishing experiences imaginable. We elected to build a lodge along the Okavango near Popa Falls. The fishing takes place up- or downstream from the lodge, guided by an experienced fisherman in a small but safe outboard boat. The main attraction is obviously the tigerfish; people travel the world just to fight this prehistoric-looking fish. Other species are different sorts of bream or buddle fish, and the area is also home to two rare fish species: the broadhead catfish and occelated spinyeel. Non-fishing activities include game drives into the Mgango game reserve or Caprivi National Park and boat trips on the river to view hippos and crocodiles. In contrast, the Zambezi has a lot more people living along its shores. A few years ago, we started to charter a houseboat in order to organise our fishing trips onto the river from this base. Experience taught us that the houseboat provided flexibility to move up and downstream, depending on fish density. Our success rate also went up tremendously. Although houseboat life is quite a different experience, all our guests just love it.

For us, trophy hunting and conservation is the same thing. As custodians of our natural inheritance, what gives us the right to hunt is the continuous commitment and determination to protect and conserve the wildlife and its habitat. We should never disregard this moral obligation. Anybody can offer you a trophy hunt, but only a few will offer you a great trophy hunt. Few are the outfitters who will give you that memorable safari experience that gives you the satisfaction you spent your money wisely and earned you the heart warming pride that you also invested in conservation and thus the survival of a sport you so cherish: hunting. “The owner of this company is a proud member of the CIC”

SOUTH AFRICA 600,000 acres FREE RANGE in South Africa! The animals that we hunt are in their natural habitats, which means that when hunting on the savannah, you will not find any that prefer dense bush, or vice versa. The animals are thus even more difficult to hunt, as they attempt to evade you in surroundings that they are well adapted to. The pressure exerted by hunters is low and the landowners in the conservancy decide their quotas themselves, aiming to maintain good trophy quality. The Baviaans River Conservancy The variety and number of animals, the beauty of the landscape and the size of the area are what this vast, unfenced area just outside of Port Elizabeth in Eastern Cape is known for. The Baviaans River Conservancy is a 450,000 acre unfenced area located two and a half hours northeast of Port Elizabeth. The conservancy is a varied area, with many different species. There are around 30 huntable species in the area, ranging from the relatively common wildebeest, blesbuck, oryx, waterbuck and impala to the rarer lechwe, mountain reedbuck and vaal rhebuck. There are also a large number of Cape kudu and bushbuck, which are darker and slightly smaller-bodied than their northern relatives, the southern greater kudu and Limpopo bushbuck. From the camp, there is a drive of an hour and a half to the coastal forests bordering the Indian Ocean, where we hunt blue duiker, caracal with dogs, Cape grysbuck and bushpigs.

Umkomaas Conservancy Hunt large kudu, nyala and bushbuck in this 150,000 acre unfenced area outside Durban! Umkomaas is a unique area in which you can hunt southern greater kudu, nyala and Cape bushbuck in their unfenced natural environment. Located in the Natal Midlands, it is a 150,000 acre conservancy which offers a superb and challenging hunt in dense bush for many of the area’s spiral-horned species, along with several of the more common antelope species. The low pressure exerted by hunters, good genes of the animals, food and age classifications contribute to making this area well-known for its greater kudu, nyala and bushbuck. Common reedbuck, impala, eland, waterbuck, oribi and wildebeest offer a varied hunt. The broken terrain and its dense bush makes spotting with binoculars followed by slow stalking the most effective hunting method. The conservancy is one hour and a half’s drive from Durban’s King Shaka Airport. Affiliations Wingshooting in South Africa Scandinavian Prohunters wingshooting programe varies from the fast flying Rock pigeons that we are hunting around Bloemfontein. To hunting francolin over pointing dogs in the beautiful mountain regions. Our hunts are in March - Mid June. The Wingshooting can be combined with plains game hunting in our FREE RANGE areas.

Hunts can be conducted on horseback or 4WD vehicles, depending on the hunter’s preference, horsemanship and physical ability. Final approach is done on foot. Hunters may expect to stalk around 10-12 km. per day which implies light hiking on relatively flat terrain.

We encourage bow hunters to hunt at Algar as they will find this country vast and open, making it easy to spot game from high vantage points. The hunting field and the hilly terrain is really broken with ravines and streams all around the scene where the animals come down looking for water to drink and pasture the valley which runs about 20 km through the center of the property. The tall grasses and bushes make the perfect camouflage for bow hunters’ activity. Bow hunters can shoot from 30 to 70 meters distance.
Although Algar Safaris is very well known as a big game hunting company, we are pleased to introduce the best wingshooting programs, which are easy to combine with the finest big game hunting. We offer dove shooting and also the amazing mixed bag shooting (Dove, perdiz & duck hunting) near Gualeguay, in Entre Ríos province, just 240 km. north east from Buenos Aires. Hunters will experience the world-famous mixed bag: great duck hunting early in the morning, followed by a fantastic perdiz hunt with dogs and the possibility to shoot as many doves as they want in the afternoon or just shooting doves all day long. This unique opportunity to hunt 3 species during the same hunting day; every day, is fantastic. Finally, it’s important to mention that Algar Safaris has been supporting many important hunting associations across the U.S. and the world, in order to contribute to protect the freedom to hunt and promote wildlife conservation programs worldwide.

The Shooting Córdoba is considered the dove shooting capital of the world. The 100 square mile radius (60 km) around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 30 million doves.
The lodge has around 25 shooting ﬁelds, which are at walking distance within our own property, or at a short drive through the region’s rich farmland. This allows for more time to relax and enjoy yourself, take a nap in between hunts, refresh in our swimming pool during the hot summer days or the outdoor hot tub in cooler days and why not take a pleasant massage for your sore shoulders and limbs! The overwhelming amount of birds flying over the head restlessly all day long ensures great opportunities for non-stop shooting suitable for all skill levels. Beginners have an unparalleled chance for improving their shooting skills aiming at low flying doves, while more experienced shooters find higher and faster targets quite a challenge. An average hunter may expect to shoot between 2 to 4 cases a day…and there’s No Bag Limit! With the shooting fields at walking distance from the lodge, dove shooting will never be the same. You will shoot more and travel less.

After 10 years of obligatory shutdown in my cinegetic activities, by insistence of the mutual friends, I return, and for my luck in a wonderful place like this one. I hope to have the opportunity to return more often. Were here together, in an impeccable stay. We leave registered the satisfaction and joy with which we were welcomed. Besides, we were awarded with a magnificent wild boar: (27 cm of tusk) hunted by Alexandre Oltramazi; and two “professional” goats hunted by Fernando Comunello and Alexandre Fasoli. Finally, a deep gratefulness to Guima and all the friends who we left here, remains. Obs.: Another wild boar, hunted by Alexandre Fasoli. Until the next one!

In almost full moon… 11hrs, tired eyelids…A single male enters - What is Laurindo? - “Male” it is, but I do not see the tusks! I thought: Good, tomorrow we are leaving, then… fire! And I hunted the greater boar of my life. Carlinhos said: another like this, not even in 100 years. Oh God! Meanwhile, Carlinhos with Eduardo were grabbing with nails and knives Lucio’s wild boar… Great night! Great hunting! Hug.

The shooting occurs on the shores of San Javier Rivers, over some of the hundreds of islands or over rice fields. We shoot twice a day, morning and evening, and there is plenty of time to relax at midday. For morning hunts, our hunters depart from the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast. Depending on the time of the year and the behavior of the birds (scouted every day), the time to get to the blinds will be from 20 minutes to an hour, including car or boat ride. Shooting over decoys starts at ﬁrst light and continues until 10 am or after. Flocks of 20 or 30 ducks are not rare. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departure at about 3pm for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts last until dark. Perdiz over dogs is a great choice to hunt. They are fast and challenging. Britain’s or German shorthair dogs hunt with us. Duck and perdiz shooting can be exchanged for Dove shooting, making the hunting diverse. Dorado Fishing is a great and fun sport. The river scenery is phenomenal. We fish in shallow water with current. Lots of different fish can be caught like stingray and Piranhas. We will use bait or fly rods depending on your request. Catch and release is what we do. In the heart of a magical environment, Veracruz offers a warm and cozy accommodation combined with the best of Argentina’s mixed bag hunting.

Home to the very best elk hunting in the world and some of the best red deer found anywhere. It is not only the trophy quality that places this hunting area as one of the best in the world but also the experience. The large team working here makes sure that your stay becomes a memorable experience. From the fine cuisine prepared by the chef accompanied by wine selected by a world renowned sommelier, to the completely renovated lodge Laurentian spares no expense to take the absolute best care of their guests. The rolling hills of dense forest interspersed with meadows and water makes the hunting area a magical place. The vast majority of the hunting is done by stalking but when the weather does not collaborate there are blinds strategically placed throughout the property. The hunting takes place starting from the middle of August and runs through the end of November. Hunters can expect to see a number of mature animals each day and will be guaranteed a number of opportunities at trophy animals. A trophy is a very personal concept unique to each hunter and at Laurentian there is a wide range in scores from solid representative animals scoring over 350 SCI to the next world record trophy of a lifetime. There are some animals considered management quality each year that are great for hunters that want to bring a child to share in this wonderful passion of hunting. They can create special packages for family hunting vacations that are very easily made part of a longer stay in Canada with an immense number of other attractions and quality accommodation options available in the area. A typical hunt takes place over 4 days and 3 nights. This together with a location less than 2 hours driving time from Montreal International Airport makes it ideal for those who are time poor and require certainty around trophy and travel. Yet when you are with the team at Laurentian the outside world feels a million miles away, nevertheless all modern communications are catered for with internet/wifi and cell phone capability.
