Last year we were prepared to have an amazing season, but it was much more incredible than we thought. The perfect amount of rain and the early cold weather gave place to one of the best duck hunting season we have ever experienced.
These conditions brought in early the great Rosy Billed Pochard, the biggest duck we have in the area, and in big numbers. I can’t tell you how much fun our guests had at both places, Malalcue Lodge and Estancia Cortaderas. The pigeon hunting at Malalcue was over the top, like we are used to in this area. What can I say about dove hunting, it is an all year round season and even though I have been going to the field year after year, I still can’t get used to the amount of doves you get to see in one day. The sky is really the limit.
When we review the numbers, between Estancia Cortaderas and Malalcue Lodge we did over 1200 bed nights and we were visited by over 220 hunters. It was great to meet new guests and to greet old friends which have been visiting us year after year. Some started coming with their sons and now we are happy to see them coming with their grandsons.
2013 was a great season for our mixed bag programs, and all indicates that 2014 will be as good as last year or even better.
Hope to see you soon!
