The Shooting


  • Cordoba is considered one of the best pigeon shooting capitals of the world. The 50 square mile radius (80 km) around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 5 million pigeons. The lodge enjoys 60 shooting fields all within a scenic drive through the region.

  • The program generally starts at 8:00 AM with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to the shoot. In the field you will be assigned a bird-boy, who will provide you with shot shells and refreshments and direct you to your shooting stand.

  • Depending on the time of the year, you will shoot till noon when you will be treated to an incredible traditional barbeque lunch at the lodge, tasting some of Argentina’s wonderful beef and the exclusive wine.

  • Return to the lodge for cocktails and early dinner.

  • Afternoon begins at around 2 or 2.30 hr., and continues until 5 or 6. Return to the lodge for cocktails at the wine cellar and early dinner.

  • These birds are large and fast, which make calculating speed a

  • little bit deceptive. They work excellently with decoys.

  • We ensure one freshly built blind for each hunter.

 "The trip with Tomas to Montaraz was flawless. Couldn't have been better. In fact the pigeon shoot at Montarez was the most challenging and easily the most enjoyable shoot we have ever experienced in South America. It ranks right up there with driven partridge in Spain and some of the better shoots in Botswana, Africa, but at a fraction of the price. And of course, Tomas' service was absolutely impeccable."

"Everything was perfect. Don't ever change anything!"

"The trip was an outstanding success! The Barran's were gracious hosts and assured that every detail was perfect. The hunting was a bit difficult with the warmer than normal weather and the dry conditions. This made it difficult for the dogs as the perdiz ran more than usual. The food was exceptional. The guides all did a good job and we appreciated having Bernardo in the field with us alternating with each hunting team as the guide. The dove hunting was great and challenging. Rosario Cetrangolo met us at the airport up on arrival and performed in an outstanding manner getting us through customs. She made a great first impression for my party about the people of Uruguay and the Estancia Hasparren experience. She is a real asset to the operation. Everyone experienced a  positive hunting, dinning, lodging, service experience."
