El Monte dove and pigeon lodge, owned and operated by Juan and Maria Alberdi, blends world-class gunning for dove and pigeon in a relaxed atmosphere in the San Luis province of Argentina. They offer exceptional shooting and hospitality with smoothly organized days. You'll hunt decoyed pigeon and passing doves on varying terrain. Accommodations are in a newly renovated estancia where the hosts and staff are very congenial and welcoming. This is a client favorite and Juan and Maria are the consummate hosts.
El Monte Lodge offers exceptional shooting over decoys for pigeon and a vast dove resource. Agricultural fields of wheat, sunflower, sorghum and corn are perfect nesting and roosting conditions. Perdiz hunts are closed in the Provence for 2016 season. Details are pending.
Built by British railroad engineers as a summer house, El Monte is now beautifully refurbished with views of old-growth gardens and stately trees. The lodge offers 6 bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and a cocktail lounge with a fireplace and dining room-El Monte is a comfortable, welcoming lodge.
Semi-auto and o/u rental guns from 28 ga. to 12 ga. will be available. Baretta/Benelli are the common brands carried. Shells are provided to include both Argentine and imported shells that are species appropriate. We suggest bringing a recoil reduction device to ease the impact of volume shooting.
