El Monte Lodge

Located in the province of San Luis, Argentina – Doves and pigeons

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.

Shooting

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 Province for the 2020 season.

Accommodation

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 six bedrooms with en suite bathroom, a cocktail lounge with a fireplace, and a dining room. El Monte is a comfortable, welcoming Lodge.

Gear

Semi-auto and o/u rental guns from 28 ga. to 12 ga. are available. Baretta/Benelli are the common brands carried. Shells are provided and include both Argentine and imported shells that are species-appropriate. We suggest bringing a recoil reduction device to ease the impact of volume shooting.

Trip Specifics

Getting there: Direct from Miami or via Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina and on to Cordoba, Argentina. The Lodge is a 3-hour drive from Cordoba or a short 30-minute charter flight. Direct charters to San Luis from Buenos Aires are an option and quoted upon request.
