GENERAL INFORMATION
Province of Salta, Anta county. Here big populations of doves feed and sleep moving through the feeding fields every day, offering the hunters thousands of shots in a typical day, amazing landscapes and sun all year round.

The area, a natural roost close to the Andes Mountains, started few years ago with farming in the fertile valleys for sunflower, corn, wheat and sorghum. This provides the perfect environment for the birdís populations, which reproduces by millions in few years . According to the National Department of Agriculture, the area we hunt is home to over 100 million birds, making Salta the best dove destination in Argentina.

Our parties stay in at Estancia Chacu; hunting places are from 5 to 45 minutes away. Weather is dry and warm winters provide an excellent shooting from March to October. Everyday hunters will shot almost 8 hours to incredible and constant flocks of birds.

Everyday hunters will shot almost 8 hours to incredible and constant flocks of birds. Only 2-hour drive from Salta city, this wild area produces soybeans, corn, peanuts and wheat. The climate is warm and dry during 10 month a year, except summer that the rain season take place. The grain production is such as corn, sorghum and sunflower means paradise for doves and pigeon. Hunters are placed individual with a bird boy, in their flylines to the roost were doves come to rest on their departure to feed and on their arrival from the water.

Quoting from an issue of Dove Hunter Magazine:
"To many who follow wingshooting trends, predictions are that Salta Province will soon overtake Cordoba Province as the dove shooting capital of the world. With only one outfitter holding the permit for the entire state, and with three times as many birds as Cordoba, Salta is the true pinnacle of dove shooting. Did I mention that there are estimated to be 100 million doves in the province?"

"Three hours later, over 1000 birds down and 60 boxes of shells later, I was exhausted."

"The numbers of doves in the Salta area greatly exceed anything I have ever witnessed elsewhere. The numbers defy any attempt to describe them. Rising like smoke and flying in virtual unbroken clouds to and from feeding areas, the scene can only be described as a plague of Biblical proportions."
