Best Locations in Argentina to Dove Hunt

Why People Dove Hunt in Argentina

Argentina is globally known for some of the best hunting in the world, especially wingshooting. Argentina's mild climate, abundant food and water sources, and vast agriculture and areas to make nests make it the perfect environment for various species of birds. Dove hunting is extremely popular in Argentina due to their high volume. In fact, high volume dove shooting is highly encouraged in Argentina as it reduces the damage to crops that the excessive bird population causes and protects harvests. Although doves are small and do not provide much meat, they are still a favorite for many hunters. Whether hunted for food or for fun, dove hunting in Argentina is unmatched and something every avid bird hunter should experience for themself.

Best Locations in Argentina to Dove Hunt

Entre Rios

The top destination in Argentina to hunt doves is Entre Rios, a province located in Argentina’s northeastern Mesopotamia region. Entre Rios, which translates to “between rivers”, sits between the Paraná and Uruguay Rivers. This is great for bird hunting, as you will have the most success in areas near a water source. The climate is temperate in central and southern portions of the province and subtropical in northern areas and the land is very flat throughout, making it an ideal grassy landscape for hunting doves. It is rich in cereal grains such as wheat, corn and sorghum, which attracts a huge amount of doves to the area. The land also features hot springs and beaches to enjoy during times you are not hunting. You can also find plenty of things to do in the nearby capital city of Buenos Aires.

 

Córdoba

Córdoba is another province in Argentina that is famous for its high volume dove hunting. It is located slightly north of the center of the country. Córdoba is a combination of plains and mountain ranges. The climate is mostly warm and temperate, although there are four seasons and times when snow is not unlikely in the higher elevations. There are an estimated 50 million doves in Córdoba and no hunting limits. When you are not hunting, you can explore the history and culture of Córdoba through many museums and historical landmarks, along with going on some of the most breathtaking hikes or horseback rides through the mountains.

La Pampa

La Pampa is a central Argentinian Province that lies just west of the Buenos Aires province. Its prairies and farms make it the ideal location for wingshooting. There is no shortage of wildlife in La Pampa. Its fertile grasslands are home to many huntable species. La Pampa has generally low elevations and a temperate climate. When you are done hunting for the day, there is great art, shopping, and nightlife in La Pampa.

The United States

Texas, Southern California, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Nevada, Kansas, Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, Arizona, and Nebraska are some of the states with the best dove hunting in the U.S. However, the United States puts more restrictions on dove hunting than South America does. This is partially due to the fact that the United States does not have as high a volume of doves as South America and also due to the fact that the U.S. is tighter with hunting laws and limitations in general.

South Africa

South Africa has a variety of dove species available for hunting, along with other wingshooting including pigeon. The diversity of bird species is what makes South Africa such a unique and desirable hunting location.
