Hunting Season: No close season

Having spent over 12 months exploring the continent of South America to find the best sporting opportunities, there is no other outfitter better than the Real Big 5 to be able to offer you a better quality or better value dove shoot.

Our knowledge of Argentina, and South America as a whole, means that we are not only able to offer the more adventurous, access to regions off the beaten track that are completely unknown to others;  we are are also able to accommodate any budget from very high end luxury lodges to more basic accommodation.

With the eared dove having a minimum of 3 clutches per annum they are considered a pest, with no close season in the year. They are the perfect hunt for those gearing up for or winding down from the shooting season at home, and after 5 days your shooting will never be sharper.

We shoot both morning and evening as the birds come out to feed, then as they come back into roost, and it is not just the dove you will get an opportunity at. Regular shots are taken at both pigeon and a variety of parrot - but don't be fooled by their beautiful colouring, these are fast flying birds that more often than not, evade the sportsman.   We are always striving to find the newest and best sporting opportunities, and as well as the World famous Cordoba region we have discovered a new and totally untouched area in the North of Argentina; Santiago del Estero. The quantity of doves here is similar to how Cordoba was 25 years ago. We are currently the only International Agency offering shooting opportunities in this region, as well as the better known Cordoba and Santa Fe areas.


All of our lodges come with a personal chef who cooks all meals at the lodge to your request. Argentina is known for its high quality meats, However for those perhaps not so keen on meat the chef will be able to cater for whatever your preference, Most groups will choose to sample some of the dove, and we will normally arrange at least one BBQ in the field for those who wish.There will always be a good selection of local wines and spirits for hunters to indulge after a hard days shooting, massages and other entertainment can also be arranged.

In season, good opportunities for wildfowling can be had in both Santiago del Estero and Santa Fe.

The trip to shoot doves in Argentina is world famous and every shotgun shot must try their hand at it, at least once. We feel there will be no better outfitter than the Real Big 5 to be able to offer you a better quality dove shoot, and we are willing to price match any other serious global outfitter.

We are so confident of our prices in Argentina that we will GUARANTEE them against any other outfitter.
