Guayascate Lodge | Dove Shooting Cordoba | Argentina


Tour code: ARG124  

Dove shooting in Argentina is by far one of the most prestigious shooting holidays we offer. There is good, and there’s very good, but sometimes something comes along that totally alters your previous expectations of good. Well, that time has arrived with the beautiful Guayascate Lodge. Thousands of travelling guns visit Argentina every year and why not, it’s safe, beautiful and offers the best Dove shooting holiday destinations the world has to offer. An incredible opportunity to get fully submerged in the excitement of a full-on 4 days hunting.


Situated within 20,000 acres of well maintained, this destination is a natural habitat which is the heart of the prime shooting areas. For those who love their dove shooting, the Cordoba Province is the crème de la crème of dove shooting as verified by hundreds of publications. So its no surprise it is here in the northern woods of Cordoba where Guayascate is located. The Eared Doves roost in the beautiful surrounding hills and mountains and each morning will leave to feed in the nearby fields of cut wheat, sorghum, sunflower and corn which is what you’ll be shooting over. At only 90 minutes from the airport, it’s a stone’s throw in respect to travel time for such an exclusive estate.

The brainchild of brothers Alex and Zeke Hayes who form the reputable H&H Outfitters offering the best dove shooting trips in Cordoba for over 20 years. We are proud to partner with H&H to promote this exciting property that will revolutionize the upscale shooting market for many years to come. It is through their experiences of owning and operating four other deluxe lodges in Cordoba that inspired them to create this wonderful new masterpiece.


When Dove shooting in Argentina, remember it is estimated that there are over 35 million eared doves in the Cordoba Province and climbing. Due to its rich agriculture and lack of natural predators, the dove here are actually a pest to farmers and the general populace so hunters are a welcome sight to the region. It is doubtful you will ever encounter so many doves in a single moment, hour or day than what you will see here in the Piquillin trees where the eared dove roosts. In fact, the property at Guayascate is actually full of these Piquillin roosts making drives to the fields a matter of minutes in most cases. Unless you request it, you will not shoot the same fields twice. With so many non-migratory birds the sheer amounts of them which you will see will blow your mind, utterly astounding. A professional bird boy will be assigned to you for the day which will help look after you and keep the day running efficiently.

Other Activities

Activities and additional trips shopping in Cordoba can be arranged for non-hunters. As well as Spa treatments, wine tasting, massages and horse riding to name but a few.

Who is best suited to this destination?

A keen and well-seasoned wing shooter would appreciate this destination due to the opportunity for a selection of challenging birds. However, at the same time it would be an ideal place for the beginner and intermediate gun to try his hand at plentiful well-presented birds whilst being well looked after on their peg.

What skill level is required?

Both experienced and beginner wing shooters can fully appreciate the delights of this trip. With the high and testing birds for the more well-seasoned gun down to the countless opportunities to improve their skill on the copious amounts of low incoming targets for the less experienced.

This is a fairly low key affair with regards to the amount of walking and lugging equipment about.

Jimmy it was a pleasure as always, it was also good to catch up with you on the telephone.


Just a short note to say what a wonderful experience.

I was a little nervous about accompanying my husband on a shooting trip as I imagined I would be very alone and a little bored.

I had no need to worry, the lodge is amazing and took such good care of me while my husband was out shooting each day. A very relaxing holiday in a stain ing country.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.


I've stayed at other lodges in the area and Guayascate is without doubt the finest lodge you will find, food, shooting and staff all first class.

Thanks for such a great holiday.

We have to agree Guayascate does take some beating.


The dove shooting is superb.

The food is absolutely wonderful. The facilities are spotless clean, very new, and simply beautiful.

The location is remote and perfectly situated for the best dove shooting experience that one can find anywhere in the world.

In short, this lodge is one of those few holiday destinations this is actually better -- MUCH BETTER -- than its website would indicate.

I would return to this destination without hesitation.

If you want to shoot doves and I mean lots of dove, this is the only place to go.

Thank you for your time in writing a destination review, so happy you like the lodge so much.


Guayascate, we miss you already! What a wonderful place tucked away in Cordoba.

The lodge is beautiful, the food delicious, and the wine always flowing. We had the privilege of staying at Guayascate recently with a wonderful group of people from around the world. All were discerning travelers like ourselves and in conversation one evening, we unanimously decided that we couldn't think of any way in which the lodge could improve. I am a non hunter and was the only female at the lodge at the time, but always felt welcome, included and pampered.

My husband was in heaven with the sporting aspect of the lodge and it will forever hold a special place in our hearts! Guayascate took care of us every step of the way- even when there was a major airline problem which delayed our departure by a day- Guayascate just welcomed us back with open arms and had lunch ready upon our return.

Thank you for a wonderful stay- we hope to see you again soon!
