If there is one thing that Americans love to do it is to go hunting. Whether that is hunting for deer, wolves, bears, boars, quail, pigeons, ducks, or doves – you name it, us Americans probably shoot it. However, as much as we love to hunt, it can become a bit tedious if we stick to the same old hunting grounds. Therefore, it is always a great idea to spend a bit of money and go hunting in another country.
We Highly Recommend Argentina
If you are thinking about going on a hunting trip abroad but you do not know where to go, then let us make your mind up for you – you should go and hunt pigeon and doves in Argentina. Doves and pigeons are a constant menace to farmers all across the country as they continuously eat their crops, meaning that dove and pigeon hunting season is open all year round.
To give you an idea as to just how many doves are in Argentina, the record number of birds shot by one American hunter in a single day currently stands at 13,000. So, if you go pigeon and dove hunting anywhere in Argentina and you do not fill up a bag with some delicious pigeon and dove meat, you might as well consider getting yourself another hobby.
In our opinion, the best place to hunt for pigeon and doves in Argentina is in the rural areas surrounding the stunning city of Cordoba. When you are booking your flights, make sure that you are booking a seat on a plane to Argentina and not a seat on a plane to Spain. Why are we mentioning this? Well, there just so happens to be a city in Spain by the same name and we know a few Americans who got to the airport thinking about a hunting trip in Argentina, only to realize that they are actually booked on a trip to Spain. They managed to sort out a ticket to the correct country in the end, but it is safe to say that they were reminded about it for the whole week that they were hunting pigeon and doves in Argentina.
