David Denies Bird Hunting

Home to hunters who expect perfection.

David Denies Bird Hunting offers a grand variety of wing shooting sport, including four uniquely beautiful lodges near Córdoba, Argentina, the world epicenter of dove shooting, and yet another amazing estate in the dove and pigeon shooting frontier of Santiago del Estero. Three of the Córdoba lodges focus on Dove, while the fourth is focused on decoyed pigeons. Our dove lodges are open ten months of the year (January thru October) meaning you can easily combine two or three days of world-class dove shooting while in Argentina or Chile fishing. There are also two classically-styled mixed bag lodges in Uruguay, offering walk up hunting for partridge over pointing dogs, excellent duck hunting, plus pigeons and doves. Three more lodges near Buenos Aires offer more action- Jacana Lodge and Los Picazos lodges hosts duck hunters seeking the best pure duck hunting on the planet, and Los Crestones, located only 2 hours from Buenos Aires airport (EZE), offers ducks over decoys, plus partridge, doves, and big game as well (Black Buck Antelope & Axis Deer).

If you are looking to combine your bird hunting with something more, to create a true Argentine mixed bag experience, our Red Stag Patagonia lodges offer a fantastic opportunity to pursue the free range, wild game of Argentina, including our namesake, the magnificent Red Stag. ...
