The right place for doves - Los Ombues Lodge







The finest dove hunting lodge in Argentina

Season: Year round.

Of the many Argentina dove hunting outfitters, Los Ombues Lodge has consistently proven to be in a league of its own. Why?

After establishing as the first 5-star outfitter in Argentina, it soon after became the first ORVIS full hunting destination in Argentina. In other words, the best dove hunting lodge in Argentina. This endorsement later received an outstanding recognition in 2012 when Los Ombues was awarded the “best international lodge of the year” by ORVIS.

With year-round nearby fields packed with doves, no competition nearby, and no game pressure on the birds, there is absolutely no risk to say that when it comes to dove hunting, Los Ombues is priceless.

During Spring, doves concentrate in huge numbers when farmers begin harvesting the winter wheat, but there is plenty of food for the doves even during our winter months.

Those who have shot doves in Argentina return impressed by the waves of birds that cross the sky all day long. Los Ombues shooting location is near the Parana River, where the birds roost near the water to circle the fields every day to feed across the vast nearby rich-in-crops hilly region.

Amazing place. Maria made the trip painless and totally organized. Juan Pablo and Augie were fantastic hosts, everything was 5 stars from food to lodging. I can’t wait to make my 4th trip to Los Ombues.
