Frequent Asked Questions
Hunting Questions
What kinds of shells are available?

We have 12, 20, 28 and 410 gauge shotgun shells. We recommend you contact us with your preference of gun type and gauge of shells you would like to use so we may check availability. We use RD and Active shells, number 7.5 shot.

Is it hard to bring our firearms into Argentina?

If you wish to bring your own semi automatic guns, please contact your local Argentine Consulate to obtain a gun entry permit. If you wish to bring an Over & Under shotgun, you do not need a permit. But please check with us about bringing guns into Argentina before your trip. The fee to enter each gun into Argentina is $140 to be paid at the airport. If you come through Buenos Aires, this procedure requires a licensed person to do the paperwork and it has a cost of $500 (gun entry and gun exit). If you come to Cordoba directly, we do this procedure with no extra cost. In both cases, we do need to have all the information of each gun you are bringing, to prepare the gun paperwork in advance. Keep in mind that sometimes the waiting time to register your guns at the different airports, can take easily 45 minutes, so pay attention to the connections with your flights.

What guns are available for rental?

H&H has more than 200 guns for rent: Benelli Montefieltro Semiautomatics and Beretta Silver Pigeon over and under, all 20 ga. We also have some Berettas over and under 28 ga.. We provide 2 guns per day so you will shoot with one while the bird boy loads the other one. We have some extensions to make the stock longer if you need it, and we also have guns with shorter stocks, and shoulder pads as well.

Am I allowed to bring my own shotgun shells?

No. You are not permitted to bring shotgun shells into Argentina.

How many shotguns can we bring?

If you wish to bring your own guns, you are allowed to bring 3 guns per person to Argentina for hunting purposes.

When is the best time to come?

There is no season for Dove Hunting in Cordoba, Argentina, since it is all year round. It is very normal to shoot 1000 or more doves a day! The best time depends on the available dates for you, and your weather preferences. Remember, our seasons are opposite of the northern hemisphere. We can offer you hunting in the fields or in the hills. From late March/April to July (our autumn / winter), we hunt in the sorghum, millet and sunflowers fields. In the sunflowers fields that we plant specifically to attract doves, the driving times are anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes. In the afternoon, we usually hunt in the roosts where you can experience high volume birds. From August to February, we usually hunt in the hills; this is the best season for high birds. Shooting is usually all day from 9:00 to 12:00 am, and 14:30 to 18:00 pm depending on your preference. March is normally a transition season when the birds migrate from the grain fields to the hills.

How far is the drive to the fields?

The drive could be between 5 to 50 minutes, depending on the lodge and season… depending on where the doves are at the time. In the grain fields season, from February to August aprox, from SIERRA VERDE, LA PORTEÑITA and RIO SECO, we have the fields very close to the lodges. At LA PORTEÑITA, we hunt across the road from the lodge, about a 10 minute drive. We have planted many acres of fields with sunflowers to have the hunting close to the lodges. At GUAYASCATE, we have also planted many fields around the lodge.

Do you have any left-handed shotguns available?

We do not have left handed guns, but we can offer over and under guns, or we can adapt a left handed stock if necessary.

Is there a minimum of days / hunters?

There is no minimum. You can come alone or with a big group, and stay only 1 day or 1 week. We can accommodate you according to your preferences and available dates. Most trips are 3-4 days long. You can check on the calendar on the website for available dates, according to the lodge you have chosen.
