Dove hunting in Argentina is one of the top items on many hunters’ bucket lists. However, traveling to South America to experience this hunt can be a daunting process. Here are a few things you should know about Argentinian dove hunting.
Where to Hunt in Argentina
Argentina has some of the best dove hunting regions in the world. One of the richest areas for hunting is the region of Cordoba in Argentina’s geographic center. Experts estimate that nearly 25 million doves occupy this region. Local farmers detest the dove population due to dangers to crops – so they welcome hunters with open arms.
Like all countries, bringing firearms into Argentina requires a bureaucratic process. You will have to file a Temporary Import Permit with the Argentine Consulate at least a few months prior to your trip. Approval times may vary, and this may conflict with your travel plans. For the easiest process, we recommend that you leave your gun at home and opt for a rented firearm from Champion Hunting.
You cannot bring your own shells to Argentina – customs will confiscate them. You will also need a license for each day of your hunt. Champion Hunting includes the price of the license in your final invoice.
Entry and Currency
If you are a citizen of the United States, you will need a valid passport to enter Argentina. As of now, you do not need a special immunization or visa to enter the country. You can use pesos or U.S. dollars within our lodge. If you plan on traveling out of the area, make sure to pick up some pesos prior to your trip.
