For years, Los Chanares, Sierra Brava and Posta del Norte lodges have been considered the “best of the best” when it comes to dove shooting in Argentina. In 2011 we created FlyWays as an umbrella company to cover this trio of the country's most exclusive wingshooting lodges.

You can expect exciting, non-stop shooting that can be very challenging, with an unlimited bag across a variety of terrain including valleys, open fields and hillsides with everything from easier, medium range birds to stratospheric, almost impossible to hit dove. The excellent reputation of these lodges has grown with every group that visits us and glowing references from British guests are available by request for each one of them. 

Our lodges each have their own personalities derived from the people who work there and their own unique strengths that have been developed to cover the needs of any client. For example, Los Chanares provides a premium experience with only 5-minute drives to the field. Sierra Brava offers world class service and fun at an unbeatable price whilst Posta del Norte gives small groups the ability to have one of the nicest lodges in Argentina privately. 

We have clients that have been to all three lodges who have loved each one for their respective idiosyncratic charms, second to none dove shooting and the exceptionally fun shooting experiences that they provide.

These are some of the unique qualities that separate us from the rest of the lodges in Cordoba and are consistent across all three operations:

  • World class dove shooting near the famous Macha roost in Cordoba
  • Incredible food and wine. Special mention for those delicious field lunches
  • 5 star service with lodges run by owners and not managers
  • Superb accommodations at some of the nicest lodges in Argentina
  • Unbeatable pricing

 

Los Chanares:

For the past ten years Los Chanares has been considered THE place to shoot doves in Cordoba, Argentina. The lodge was strategically built two minutes from the largest roost in Cordoba. In order to ensure that the doves never leave the property a game management program was put in place in 2000 which consists of annually planting large sunflower and wheat fields, throwing, quite literally, tons of corn down for the birds each year and running a stream through the middle of the property that is additionally complimented by watering holes. This simple formula guarantees the birds never leave the property and provides some of the most magical shooting anywhere in the world!

The 9-bedroom lodge was built knowing that many demanding clients would be attracted to the world class shooting. The accommodation is luxurious yet still maintains the feel of a traditional hunting lodge. The rooms are very spacious and each has its own private bathroom. A beautiful pool was built since clients have ample time to relax at the lodge due to the time saved on journeys to the field by it's extreme proximity to the shooting areas. Finally a welcoming fire pit was placed behind the lodge where clients can enjoy a refreshing gin and tonic or bloody mary after shooting and recount the day’s events.

Of course this edge in shooting and accommodations over competitors was not enough in Cordoba. Over the past six years the lodge has consistently raised the bar on service and food. Everything is perfectly organized for your trip yet the environment around the lodge is relaxed. The staff will go out of its way to accommodate any requests. Guests will enjoy gourmet meals that are simple and most importantly mouth watering. From the Argentine asado (bbq) lunches to the delicious dove nuggets, it doesn’t get any better. All this combined with a nice Argentina wine and Cuban cigar make Los Chanares a very special place!

Sierra Brava:

When considering dove hunting in Argentina, there’s “good” and then there is Sierra Brava. Dove hunting at Sierra Brava is in a world-class league of its own. From the beginning Sierra Brava had access to the best fields in Cordoba due to personal relationships with local farmers. For this reason the lodge was strategically located only 15 minutes from the heart of Argentina’s most desirable hunting region – the Macha roost. This allows for short drives and access to fields where high volume dove records are set. In 2010 an American from Dallas, Texas named Todd White broke the Sierra Brava record of over 11,000 birds shot in one day.

Even though clients are blown away by the quantity and quality of the shooting, the thing that separates Sierra Brava apart is its legendary service. Clients feel right at home at Sierra Brava. The atmosphere around the lodge is very relaxed and fun. The bird boys are the fastest loaders around and are always up for a good laugh. The staff strives to make every Sierra Brava dove hunt a trip of a lifetime even though clients usually return year after year. Finally the food and wine at the lodge are first class. Sierra Brava offers mouth-watering steaks, both in the field and in the lodge and serves the finest Argentine wines. It’s what legendary hunting trips are made of.

The 7-bedroom lodge was built knowing that many clients would be drawn to the world class shooting with luxurious accomodation but the feel of a hunting lodge. Each room is very spacious and has its own private bathroom. There is also a beautiful pool that was built because clients spend more time around the lodge and less on van rides. There is also a great firepit at the lodge where clients can relax and talk over the day’s events.

  • Record-Setting Shooting
  • Legendary Service
  • Best value for your money
  • Your Home Away from Home
  • Memorable Field Lunches

Posta Del Norte

Posta del Norte is the newest addition to the FlyWays family. Posta was built in 1995 by the previous owners. The lodge was built in a very strategic position exactly between the largest roosts in the north of Cordoba – Churqui and Macha roosts. For this reason Posta enjoys a great variety of dove shooting as well as consistently manageable drives of approximately 30 minutes. More importantly Posta has the ability to pick from the best fields Cordoba has to offer. Dove shooting here is as good as it gets!

Posta’s other main attraction is privacy. With groups of four or more you can reserve the entire lodge with no private room surcharge. This makes Posta perfect for business, family or intimate friend groups. The lodge has six very comfortable rooms each with a fireplace and private bathroom. Your group can also use a seventh room, which is smaller and is great for kids. The feel of the lodge is very warm with the idea to make you feel right at home. The lodge was purposely built as a dove shooting lodge, which makes its layout perfect for guests. The rooms are separate from the dining room and living room. Plus there is a gaucho bar with a structure that dates back to the late 1800s. This is a truly amazing place to enjoy a cocktail after the day hunt.

The guest services at Posta are first rate especially given the smaller group sizes and more private nature of the lodge. The white glove service at the lodge is accompanied by a very friendly and relaxed house staff. The food is prepared by a chef who trained at Los Chanares for 2 years and the Argentine wine served at the lodge is first rate. Basically clients at Posta receive first class service and world class dove shooting, all in a very private setting. It just doesn’t get any better!

Shooting Season in Argentina: 

It is possible to shoot dove without bag restrictions throughout the year in Argentina. Many British clients choose to come out between December and March during the close of the shooting season in the UK. 

Weather: 

Seasons in Argentina are the opposite of seasons in the northern hemisphere. The winter months in Argentina are June-August and summer falls between December and March. For milder weather conditions, leaning towards slightly wetter and colder, September / October is a great time to shoot. If you prefer to get a sun tan while you shoot then January / February are the months for you.

Taking your favorite guns into Argentina is very simple: You are allowed to introduce up to three guns, on a temporary basis.
