Los Crestones is the perfect destination for the those seeking a variety of spectacular Wing shooting in South America. With just a short journey from the airport you will have the opportunity to get out hunting in the evening after a little downtime upon arrival at the lodge. This is the ideal holiday if you like a variety of shooting and are keen for a great adventure.
Located in the Province of Buenos Aires, just 85 minutes from the Ezeiza International airport is Los Crestones Lodge, which was named for the Rosy Billed Pochard-Argentina’s most distinctive and sought-after duck. Set in mature parkland and surrounded by fertile countryside, Los Crestones will offer discerning guests a combination of decoyed 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 pedigree 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-trained 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.
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.
The spectacular and incredibly awe inspiring Los Crestones lodge is the go to destination for the adventurous hunters. Treating you to a wealth of different species to shoot during your time at the lodge you will be utterly spoilt for choice with the quarry list. The mornings hunt will have you venturing out pre-dawn after a hearty breakfast hunting Ducks over decoys in the ponds where you will be accompanied by an experienced guide and a retriever. It is their responsibility to call the Ducks into the pattern for you, as well as spot them. You will encounter up to ten or more species each day. After an amazing mornings hunt you will head back to the lodge or pause in the field where you will enjoy an intermittent rest over a fresh spread of culinary delights and a siesta. The afternoons agendas may vary depending on which species you choose to hunt. There will be the opportunity to shoot walked up Perdiz in the rich pastures near the lodge where pointers will flush the birds to you providing you with an exciting experience. Other afternoons you may well enjoy copious amounts of Dove shooting, or wild Pigeon shooting over decoys when available.
Additional trips can be arranged for the non-shooting companions. From excursions to the City for sight-seeing, historical tours and shopping. There is a full spa to relax in and not only that but a full games and TV room to kickback in to really allow you to unwind. If it’s a little more energy you’d like to expend then there is horse riding, football and volleyball facilities as well as bicycling tours to keep the blood flowing.
