Los Gauchos Outfitters does offer pigeon shooting in Argentina at select destinations. We do offer excellent decoyed pigeon shooting just across the river in Uruguay.
This pigeon hunting can be taken alone, or in conjunction with Cordoba dove hunting. If you have never tried pigeon hunting in Argentina, we highly suggest that you give it a try—it’s the next best things to Argentina duck shooting on dry land!
Pigeon shooting is ideal for our clients have health problems that prevent them from being able to walk behind a dog for an entire afternoon of Perdiz hunting, or endure the cold weather of duck hunting, so we needed to find an activity that they could do. The pigeon hunts were the logical choice, and now all of our clients love to shoot them.
Pigeon hunting is much more civilized: the drives to the hunting areas are easy, and clients have the option to hunt other species like dove, and Perdiz.
Argentina Bird Hunting Perfection - High volume doves with a day of Pigeon Shooting"
Pigeon hunting trips are such great fun.
These birds offer the most challenging shooting South America has to offer.
Pigeons fly high and erratically as part of their nature, and once the shooting begins, they become especially wary.
If you move at all, they are very adept at seeing you and quickly performing evasive aerobatic maneuvers—flaring straight out of gun range.
Argentina PigeonsUnlike waterfowl, these birds do not have pinfeathers, but they are as big as wood ducks, and just as hard to bring down. 7 ½ shot just seems to cripple them on long yardage shots, so we use No. 5 to get the job done in a more authoritative manner. A modified choke also seems to improve ballistics on the often forty plus yard shots that are all too often the only shot one will get on these wild birds.

Wild pigeons are delicious on the table. They taste just like the eared dove one would find on a Cordoba dove hunt, and we routinely prepare them “Texas style”, wrapped in bacon and hot peppers. And yes, we wash them down with cold beer—the local brands are: Quilmes, Isenbeck, and Warstiener.
