SANTA ROSA, La Pampa province - Argentina
Red stag hunt

 


This year the big game hunting season has started with great results. Even though Argentina has experienced the worst drought in 50 years, it seems it has not affected the feeding of many of the animals. The quality of the trophies is really very good, they are healthy and with very good antlers.

The first group that arrived this year -organized together with Rick Kennerknecht- was Jim and Vannie Collins, from McAllen, Texas-USA. After a nice charter flight from Buenos Aires, Jim and Vannie together with Nico Catena arrived at the lodge, located 375 miles west from Buenos Aires city. The staff was waiting for them and right after landing, the cook was expecting them with a great lunch, excellent to recover the energy and depart immediately to field to take a first view and get ready for the next 5 days hunt. After working hard with the professional guides, finally both hunters got a Silver Medal Red Stag trophy. I´m sure they will never forget this trip, both trophies are really nice!

Jim and Vannie: hope to see you again next 2010 hunting season.

Trip of a lifetime.

Our good friend Alexander Kennedy, from London-UK, has organized a truly 'trip of a lifetime' for his friends. After staying a couple of days in the nice neighborhood of Puerto Madero in the heart of Buenos Aires city, they departed to San Javier area -considered the best place in Argentina for duck hunting- to hunt for ducks in the rice fields. Everybody shoot the limit: 50 ducks per day per hunter!!! Two hunts were enough, so the group moved to the other side of the Parana river, to one of the best lodges in Argentina where they made high volume dove shooting (Note: one of the hunters shot 47 boxes in only half a day hunt). As the weather is so pleasant in this area during March, some of them decided to enjoy the pool and some of them went fishing for freshwater Dorado. Back to Buenos Aires on a charter flight, they departed on March 21st to Rio Gallegos. They booked a fly fishing weekly program for Sea trout in one of the most challenging and beautiful rivers of Patagonia. Nice fish, lot of fun and red wine!

Alex, my friend... hope you and your party enjoyed this 'lifetime trip'.

SAN JAVIER, Santa Fe province
Duck hunting in Argentina

 


Bryan Mullet party -organized together with Dick Kennerknecht- arrived in Argentina on March 22nd. All of them from WI, USA. After an excellent dove hunt in Córdoba, they took a charter flight and arrived in San Javier area, for their first Argentina duck hunting trip. I have to tell you it is not easy to organize 12-person logistics for duck hunting, but we did it. Divided in groups of two hunters per blind we departed every morning and evening to shoot in the rice fields. Result: 822 ducks in only 4 outings!

Staying in a comfortable lodge, the group enjoyed the swimming pool every day, while having dozens of cold beer. If this isn´t enough, think about the 2-pound beef, medium red cooked in the barbecue with wood!

This nice party of friends really enjoyed the trip laughing and joking all the time, together with an excellent hunt.

SANTA ROSA, La Pampa province
Big Game hunt in Argentina

 


Santiago Junco from Mexico DF, has returned this year. It was his third visit to Argentina booking with us. This year it was a 4-day short visit but with enough time to enjoy a red stag hunt in La Pampa. He had a great time and promised to come back next 2010 season. We will be waiting for you Santiago!

Together with our Mexican friend, Jack and Darrell Henry decided to make their first "hunting safari" to Argentina organized togehter with Tony Ruggeri. A nice present from Jack to his father Darrell in honor to his last working day! Isn´t this a lovely son?

I don´t want to write too much, just to mention the trophies: red stag, blackbuck antelope, axis deer, fallow deer, muflon, water buffalo...and let the pictures speak. Oh! a last minute surprise: they made one outing for high volume doveshooting.
