At Montevideo airport, my business partner and myself will be waiting for you. We will help you through customs, and give you your hunting license and authorizations to transport fire arms. This should take about half an hour.
We will then drive to our first hunting ground, about 100km away from Montevideo, and arrive there at about lunch time (flights generally arrive late morning). To get into the swing of things, we will spend the afternoon shooting flocks of pigeons. Then, in the evening we will be on our way to a waterfowl ground where we will stay for the next two days. Our stay will finish at the Brazilian border where we will be hunting in turn waterfowl, turtle doves and partridges with pointers. This planning can be modified depending on your choices, weather forecast or to improve its chances of success.
Dogs will be present in all the outings. The kennel is composed of about thirty dogs, a mixture of pointers, retrievers and springers.
We hunt about 6 hours a day or more when shooting morning ducks.
Every day after the morning ducks, and after a coffee, we will continue with rough shooting, because it is possible to encounter partridges, hares and snipes in all our territories.
We will then enjoy an “asado”, grilled meat on site, to take maximum advantage of the day. In the afternoon we will continue with either rough or posted wood pigeon shooting.
Tinamou partridge: only found in South America, these birds do not live in large groups. It is quite common to lift 80 to 100 birds in one morning.
Hare: identical to the European one.
Ducks: about 12 different species, only found in South America. They are very different to our European birds.
Turtle doves: extremely numerous in South America.
Pigeons: 2 species. One looks like our European ring dove, the second one is slightly smaller.
