Argentina – Duck and Partridge Hunt


Duck hunting in Argentina offers the hunter an opportunity to harvest up to 11 different species of ducks. It is well-known that Argentina is one of the best places to hunt ducks. With a liberal limit of 40 ducks per day the hunting can be fast and furious. The hunting is done near the town of Esquina. Esquina is situated on the banks of the Rio Parana in the province of Corrientes.

All the areas to be hunted are baited with sorghum and corn a week prior to the opening the lakes. Since, in Argentina, it is allowed to attract ducks with food it insures that you will have a memorable hunt. Hunting season for ducks runs from May through August. Ducks are hunted from blinds, in or near the water, made of natural vegetation from the area which gives the hunter a very natural appearance to the ducks. Ducks are attracted using decoys and whistles. Normally, the duck hunting is performed in the morning while partridge hunting is performed in the afternoon.


Partridge (Perdiz) are hunted in the afternoon over German shorthaired pointers. These birds are about the size of a small pheasant and will test you skills with a shotgun! You will see true Argentine gauchos herding cattle on your drive to and from the Perdiz hunting areas.

A typical day starts early with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to the area to be hunted that day. The hunting will start right near sunup and normally you will have your ducks in hand by 9:30am. Lunch at the lodge is as good as you would expect in a five star restaurant. After a little rest and relaxation you will head for the field in search of Perdiz. After the Perdiz hunt you will be treated to a dinner featuring some of the game that was taken. Sunsets over the Rio Parana finish a perfect day.
