Tinamou Shooting

The name ‘Perdiz’ is the Spanish slang for the Red-legged Partridge; however, you will not shoot a ‘real Perdiz’ in Argentina; you’ll be shooting their most common species, Tinamou. They are members of a larger family consisting of roughly 12 varieties, including the crested Tinamou, the larger cousins of the Perdiz and the ‘Spotted Tinamou’, the Argentine counterpart of the Partridge.

Perdiz are related to Kiwis but are not flightless; they roost together at night and wander off to feed individually during the day. They also prefer to run from danger whenever possible. Thriving in low lying grasses in undisturbed fields and pastures, they are targeted with the help of Pointers or English Setters. The dogs will pick up a scent and flush the birds from the undergrowth and out towards the waiting guns. The small birds provide a very challenging target for the travelling hunter, as they explode up into the air and fly in a straight line at great speed. They are the ideal quarry for those seeking a testing target.

As well as being a famous game bird, the Perdiz and Tinamou are highly prized for their eating qualities. Like Pheasants, Grouse and Quail, their succulent white meat is delicious and passes the table fare test with ease.
