San Juan Uruguay Bird Hunting Lodge

Built on the tradition of over 20 years of dove Perched majestically atop a knoll with a striking 360 degree view of the fertile Uruguayan countryside teaming with ducks, doves, pigeons and perdiz is Estancia San Juan, the newest edition to the David Denies Wing shooting venue. Managed by DD Wing shooting partners, and long time shooting hosts Bernardo and Mercedes Barrán, San Juan offer the convenience of shooting all game birds in Uruguay from just one destination and the assurance of a world class outfitter known for attention to detail and quality.

The Shooting


  • Hunting and shooting at San Juan offers a variety of game that makes Uruguay a very unique destination, where hunters can enjoy the pursuit of the upland mixed bag in the same day, each and every day.

  • Each morning you will hunt wild partridge or perdiz in short grass pastures, and over pointers and English setters, or ducks and big wild pigeons by decoying in lagoons and ponds nearby.

  • Every day you will drive to the perdiz fields or to the lagoons for duck and pigeon hunting and return for lunch at the lodge, or stay for a BBQ, the "asado", done in the field by the staff.

  • The afternoon shoot (high volume dove shooting) will start after lunch, and will end at dusk. Each evening you will return to the lodge for cocktails and dinner. Your host and guide, as well as bird boys, will be with you to provide you with challenging shooting, and other necessities such as shotgun shells, refreshments and anything else you may need. Drive time to hunt locations is usually between 10 and 35 minutes for the perdiz, ducks or pigeon fields, and from 5 up to 35 minutes for the dove shooting.
