Bird Hunting Report – May 2011!
Subscriber Terry Ray of Brownsville, Texas, has a South American dove hunt he’d like to recommend.
Terry hunted out of the Sierra Brava Lodge, an hour north of Cordoba, Argentina, from March 10 through 14 of this year.
It sounds as if everything went AOK for Terry. He found the doves to be abundant. He gives “Excellent” ratings to all aspects of the “Personal Guide” category and to all but the “Dog work” in the “Outfitter/Operator” category. There were no problems, and he remarks that “Topo and J.J. run a first-rate operation. They can handle up to 14 people.”
He liked the hunting blinds, calling them “very natural.” He received “good service” and says Sierra Brava plays home to a”top-notch chef and outstanding staff.”
As another highlight, he notes that hunters needed a drive of less than 20 minutes to get them to the birds. He says the March 2011 journey “was not my first trip to Cordoba, but there were tons of birds in these roosts.”
Terry even was able to rank his airlines with a 10. He flew Continental from Houston to Buenos Aires and LAN from there to Cordoba.
The cost of the trip, excluding airfare was $1,250. Shells cost $11.95 per box.
