Duck hunting in Argentina
There is a magic about duck hunting in Argentina. On a typical morning hunt, you will leave by boat before dawn. When you arrive at the appointed spot your guide will quickly construct a natural blind and set out decoys. You will begin to sense the moving shadows of pre-dawn ducks around you, so close you can hear their wings beat. Watching the sun rise here with ducks passing and decoying is worth the price of the whole trip.
Ducks are typically hunted in the morning, and the limit is a very generous 20 per hunt. The season is May – August, Argentine winter. Your primary target will be the large, majestic Rosy-Billed Poachard, the royalty of Argentinean ducks. In addition, you may see several types of beautiful and very fast teal plus the occasional tree duck or pintail. Duck hunting may take place in open water or in one of the many beautiful natural ponds.
