At Veracruz you can hunt different species of ducks depending on the time of the year, the rosy billed and whistling ducks being the most common, along with some teals. Duck shooting features comfortable and well camouflaged blinds, quality specie-speciﬁc decoys and guides who will place you where you need to be to get the kind of duck hunting you’ve only dreamed of until now. The shooting takes place on the shores of San Javier River, over some of the hundreds of islands or over rice fields fact that offers the program variety and excitement. We shoot twice a day, morning and evening, and there is plenty of time to relax at midday. For morning hunts, our hunters depart from the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast. Depending on the time of the year and the behavior of the birds (scouted every day), the time to get to the blinds will be from 20 minutes to an hour, including car or boat ride. Shooting over decoys starts at ﬁrst light and continues until 10 am or after. Depending on the skills of the shooter, the limit of 30 ducks per hunt can be reached in 30 to 45 minutes. Flocks of 20 or 30 ducks are not rare. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departure at about 3pm for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts last until dark. Perdiz over dogs is a great choice to hunt. They are fast and challenging. Britain’s or German shorthair dogs hunt with us. Duck and Perdiz hunting can be exchanged for Dove shooting, making the hunting diverse. Golden Dorado Fishing is a great and fun sport and the river scenery is phenomenal. We fish in shallow water with current. Lots of different fish can be caught like stingray and Piranhas. We will use bait or fly rods depending on the time of year and your preference. Catch and release is what we do. In the heart of a magical environment, Veracruz offers a warm and cozy accommodation combined with the best of Argentina’s mixed bag hunting.
