Los-Crestones-Hunting-Lodge-Argentina

Building on our tradition of excellence, the David Denies Wingshooting family is proud to announce the addition of an exciting new hunting property for the 2011 hunting season.

Located in the Province of Buenos Aires, just 85 minutes from the Ezeiza International airport, Los Crestones Lodge, was named for the Rosy Billed Pocahrd-Argentina’s most distinctive and sought-after duck. Set in a mature parkland and surrounded by fertile countryside, Los Crestones will offer discerning guests a combination of decoying ducks followed by perdiz over dogs.

For those who appreciate shooting behind a well trained dog, Los Crestones is special. Your host, Claudio Villalba, has been breeding and training pedigreed sporting dogs for 25 years, and they are a joy to see in the fields and in the marshes.

On duck hunts, you will be accompanied by a team of well mannered Retrievers, making sure that lightly hit birds are recovered. The perdiz (a prized Argentine game bird) will be shot over German Short-Hairs and English Pointers. Watching them work is a joy in itself.

The lodge is a classic Argentinean estancia, which has been recently refurbished and possesses all the comfort and style you would expect of a David Denies property. Guests will sleep in one of  6 single bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. In the evening, exquisite meals and fine Argentine wines will be enjoyed in the dining room.  

At Los Crestones we believe we have created a unique opportunity– a wild mixed bag hunt, supported by a great staff and great working dogs, all within a short drive of the international airport. Add a couple days to your next shooting holiday, business trip or family visit to Argentina-you won’t be disappointed.  

The Shooting

 

  • In the mornings, you will be hunting ducks over decoys in nearby ponds

  • Guests will depart the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast, with everything from waffles to eggs benedict.

  • Hunters are placed in double blinds, or large  sunken "buckets" of the style of an individual pit blind, or on platform-pallet blinds.

  • Each pair of hunters will be accompanied by a guide with a Retriever, making  sure that 100% of birds are collected each hunt.

  • Most days hunters will return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta  before heading out again

  • Some afternoons, you will be shooting Perdiz in the rich pastures near the  lodge.

  • Our experienced guides will work with their team of pointers to provide you with the best possible sport. We will use mostly German SH & E.Pointers. But we might use Vizlas and Brittanys as well.

  • Other afternoons, you will enjoy more duck hunting or when available Wild Pigeon Hunting over decoys or low volume dove shooting.
