W elcome to Rio Branco, Uruguay?home of the Rio Branco duck hunting lodge! This is the new home of the Uruguay Duck Hunting Club which was relocated here in 2009 from Cebollati, Uruguay.
This A-rated duck hunting lodge is so close to the duck marshes that you could almost walk to the blinds if you wanted to?but most people don't.
Most duck hunters jump in one of our 4x4 trucks and take the 5-minute drive.
Rio Branco Lodge is a classic for duck hunters. Built with large bedrooms and private baths, nice large living area with game table, and duck hunting that is right outside the front door, this is the favorite lodge of Los Gauchos bird hunting clients.
The Rio Branco duck hunting lodge is perfect for private groups, and small parties who desire the utmost in attention and customer service.
Duck hunting 5 minutes away - and LOTS of ducks
This duck hunting club has 4 rooms with 8 beds.
Each room has a private bathroom with a hot, high pressure shower.
The lodge sits right in the middle of huge rice farming plantation, and the sights and sounds that you will see and here in these marshes are quite enchanting.
Rio Branco Duck Hunts
The duck season for the Rio Branco lodge begins May 1st and ends in mid-September. The best time to shoot the Rosy billed Pochard is during late July, August, and September - since they are migratory ducks.
During this time you will also find a large amount of Brown Pintails and White Faced Tree ducks - which are some of the hardest South American ducks to bring down.
Rio Branco Uruguay
We used to use duck hunting retrievers at this duck hunting club, but we discontinued their use after the economic collapse in 2009, since we found that most of our clients did not want to pay a higher daily rate to shoot ducks over dogs - which is unfortunate, but nevertheless a reality. In rare circumstances, one of our duck hunting guides will use his own retriever, which makes for a special treat, but most of the time we employ bird boys to do the picking up.
Uruguay Hunting Lodge
This comfortable lodge can host up to 8 shooters per week. Come if you enjoy duck hunting and want success each and every hunt.
The food is prepared to your requests and local fruits, vegetables, wine and home made desserts will make you remember the quality of the Uruguay Duck Hunting Club or Rio Branco Lodge.
