Argentinian Doves

They'll certainly keep you busy for the day!

Chacu Lodge is an exclusive 12,000 acres estate lying within the 620,000 acres Anta Valley in the heart of Argentina’s Salta province famous for its bountiful supply of soya beans, corn, peanuts and wheat. With an estimated 100 million resident doves within the Anta Valley, it is by far Argentinian’s most prestigious hunting destination.

Guests can be positioned in a variety of locations to include being in the centre of a huge roost, around the perimeter of harvested grain fields or on the river edge. All of hunting fields are within a twenty-five-minute drive of the Lodge and with no closed seasons for dove shooting in Argentina, it is possible to shoot all year round. Due to its northern location closer to the Equator the region enjoys a warm climate that changes little throughout the year. January is the hottest month with the average temperature of 22 degrees with June being the coldest with an average of 12 degrees. The most popular months to shoot are therefore March through to November, due to their favourable weather conditions.

Chacu Lodge itself is a magnificent newly built 20,000 square foot Lodge offering nine spacious double bedrooms for up to 18 guests.  The Lodge is situated on a hillside overlooking the 12,000 acres estate and has a vast array of facilities such as a sauna, massage and spa treatment centre all set within the grounds. The lodge has been named one of the best hunting and fishing lodges in the world and is in one of the most spectacular environments, surrounded by the best hunting Argentina has to offer.
