To start, I want to thank everyone that continue to trust me to handle your trips. I love what I do and I feel great satisfaction from the amazing reports I continue to receive. Thank you!!!
Since November, our Argentina outfitters have been busy hosting of our friends and fellow hunters. The dove shooting continues to be intense; the food is always delicious; and the attention to detail is second to none. More groups will be shooting in Cordoba this month. Undoubtedly, as has already been proven, the service provided by the staffs of La Zenaida, Guayascate, and Los Chanares will be exemplary. Most of our groups rebooked trips for next year.
It’s also the start of the red stag season in Patagonia. I received photos of big trophy stags taken on opening day! The beautiful mountains, foothills, and blue-ribbon trout streams of the Andes is why the Patagonia is one of my favorite regions. Every season since 1998, our outfitter has provided unrivaled trips for our friends. The ranch is 60,000 acres and offers superb free-range hunting for roaring stags, wild boar, and valley quail. The ten miles of private trout streams offer wonderful fly-fishing for the beginner and seasoned anglers. This is an ideal destination for families with lots of activities and a fabulous lodge. Our folks love this place!
Recently, my partner, Col. Dennis Behrens, spent a couple of days checking out Los Ombues Lodge in the Entre Rios province. The Colonel reported Los Ombues is “one of the best lodges in Argentina – for sure.” This operation has been privately booked for many years. Great news: The Los Ombues’ duck, dove, and perdiz combo trips are now available to our hunters. Their guest book has an impressive list of visitors that includes members of royal families, presidents, and professional sports personalities. Their big beautiful lodge, a gun inventory of a hundred shotguns, private airstrip, kennel of highly-trained bird dogs, and thousands of acres of private land are just some of the aspects that make this is one of the finest destinations in South America.
Most of the hunting here at home is now closed. Next week I return to South Georgia for quail. In the next few months, our friends will travel to Alaska for bears; Africa for buffalo, leopard, and plains game; Paraguay for decoyed pigeons; and then back to Argentina for ducks and doves. I anticipate some great hunting and memorable experiences.

Also, see the video links below that show off a couple of top-shelf Cordoba dove lodges. They are short clips and very well produced.

Below are a couple of comments I received from hunters that traveled to Patagonia and Cordoba.
Just want to let you know what a great time we had hunting Red Stag and fly fishing at the Tipiliuke Lodge in Patagonia! As always you lined up a great adventure with the best accommodations but this one was above my expectations! The wives loved it and the hunting and fishing were amazing.

We really enjoyed the lodge at Guayascate; the folks there really put forth the effort to plan and take care of every detail. The food was phenomenal, my only complaint was it all taste so good I kept forgetting to say “no”. The service was really over the top.
I’m already looking forward to our next trip.
If anyone needs further info on Argentina or any other hunts, feel free to call me at 830-483-0796.
All the Best,
