Season: Year round.
There is no season or limit for dove hunting in Argentina. As doves are considered a serious threat for crops, local farmers welcome hunters. Shooting is excellent all year round. Each day affords six to seven hours of good, steady shooting. An average of 3 cases of shells per day per shooter is the daily norm, even though shooting is superb all year round, records show mid-September through early April has produced the best shooting. 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.
Bonus: Dorado and Piranha fishing.
Los Ombues is the only place in Argentina that offers both the best dove hunting in the country and great Dorado and Piranha fishing in the marshes that are close to the lodge.
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. At midday the doves fly in both directions and in the late afternoon they return to the their roost.
