GENERAL INFORMATION
Welcome the the new high volume dove shooting destination in Argentina!!!

Neighboring Cordoba, San Luis province home of one of the biggest roosts of Doves in the central region of Argentina. In a landscape of soft hills and calden woods, millions of Doves nest and feed over huge corn fields. In the last decade , cattle prices went down in Argentina and the agriculture raise high. States like San Luis started to sell the cattle out and seed corn instead. This situation combined with the vast calden Woods and water, created the perfect environment for the Dove Population and Migration to grow in San Luis!

At Capelen Lodge, the Hunt takes place in big roosts beside the river and in huge corn fields, between a landscape of soft Hills and calden Woods. The day starts at 7:00 am with an International style breakfast, then our staff and guides drive the hunters to the hunting fields. Depending the field chosen by our manager, you may drive from 20 up to 45 minutes. When the field chosen is more than 30 minutes drive we make a luxury camp with comfortable tents and we stay out in the field the hole day for a special treat with a traditional Argentinean barbecue and regional wines out in the field! Bird boys will assist the hunters at all moment, supplying them with shells and cold beverages. After the hunts we come back to the lodge to enjoy some drinks, friendly fires and delicious meals made out by our cheff.

ACCOMMODATIONS
