There’s a new pigeon and dove hunting lodge in Cordoba, and Trek International Safaris, along with our partners H&H Outftters invites you to be among the very first to experience the excitement of Escondido.

Just beyond the Sierras de Cordoba, lies thousands of acres of land dotted with irrigation pivots watering fields of peanuts, soybeans, and corn. March through August, these crops offer an expansive food source for migrating pigeon and resident eared dove.

Escondido Lodge is a result of Trek and H&H Outfitters ongoing commitment to innovation to optimize our wingshooting clients’ experience. Pigeon hunting here is an excitement-filled experience; you’ll shoot from blinds as large birds drop down onto decoys set up by your
bird boy.

The dove hunting is a typical Cordoba high-volume, no limit experience. Our bird boys will keep your guns loaded for action all day.

While this area has been on Trek’s radar for years, we did not previously send our clients there due to increased travel time and lack of high-level accommodations. Now, with the recent acquisition by H&H Outfitters of a private charter plane and the construction of this new lodge, it’s game on for Escondido!

H&H will deliver its renowned attention to detail and unmatched service to an already established work ethic, while Trek Safaris will manage your travel arrangements with the highest level of commitment, as we have since 1973.

The driving distance to the fields ranges between 15 and 50 minutes in our luxury 9 passenger vans with air conditioning, refreshments and two-way radios. Each client shoots with their own experienced professional bird boy, who will provide shells, act as a loader, retrieve downed birds and keep cool drinks ready. Shooting continues until noon, when the group gathers in a shady grove of trees for a traditional Argentine asado (barbecue) complemented with salads, gourmet desserts and fantastic wines.

Lunch can also be served at the lodge where you can enjoy a siesta in your air conditioned bedroom. The shoot in the afternoon continues until about 6 pm. At the lodge, after the hunt, we welcome the shooters with appetizers and a refreshing towel.

Escondido Lodge is located in the western side of Cordoba province in the largest irrigated area in Argentina.
The peanut, sunflower and sorghum fields in the area together with many acres of roost make this area an incredible habitat for doves and pigeons. The pigeon season runs from the last week in March to the first week in August. The dove season runs year round.

The lodge has eight spacious bedrooms with private bathroom. Four of the bedrooms were built this year and the main lodge was fully renovated in 2018.
