Of royal heritage, Uruguay Lodge blends rich history and vast game-populated countrysides to form an iconic southern hemisphere mixed bag shooting experience. Managed by David Denies Wingshooting partners and longtime shooting hosts Bernardo and Mercedes Barran, Uruguay Lodge offers the convenience of shooting multiple species from one destination. You will shoot doves, perdiz, and even wild pigeons with the assurance of a tenured outfitter, known remarkable shooting venues, and extraordinary dogs. Ducks are presently closed for 2020 season.
Enjoy morning perdiz hunts over setters or decoyed pigeons. Lunch is a sit-down affair at the estancia featuring grilled meats and fine wines. Afternoons include volume dove shoots as vast flights migrate between the roosts, just a few kilometers away. Ducks are presently closed for 2020 season.
The historic 19th-century mansion of noble lineage exemplifies the rich traditions of Uruguay. Offering six ensuite bedrooms, it is ideal for smaller parties or up to 10 guests comfortably. The Barran’s hospitality and cuisine have become famous over their 30 years in the shooting world.
Semi-auto and o/u rental guns from 12–28 ga. are available. Beretta/Benelli are the commonly carried brands. Shells are species-appropriate. Shooting clothes should be light green, green, or brown; camouflage is optional. We suggest a recoil reduction device to ease the impact of volume shooting.
