This property features year-round, high-volume doves and pigeon shooting thanks to abundant regional water sources and vast tracts of agricultural land bordered by prime roosting habitat. From April 15-August 15, Kono’s mixed bag program of dove, pigeon, perdiz and ducks cover a smorgasbord of Argentine shooting.
Nestled in a cottonwood grove in La Pampa Province, Kono lodge is a cozy, tastefully refurbished Spanish colonial-style house with comfortable accommodations ideal for intact parties or mixed groups of up to 10 guests.
For discriminating shooters interested in the ultimate mixed bag shoot (dove/duck/pigeon/perdiz) from May 1-July 31, or a 12-month stand-alone dove shoot, this is it. Kono is just a 30-minute drive from the charter airport in the town of General Pico and is easily combined with Estancia Santa Rita.
Kono (meaning “dove” in Mapuche language) offers a recently refurbished Spanish colonial-style house with comfortable accommodations for up to 10 guests. The lodge has 5 double rooms with private bathrooms, living room, dining room, galleria, outdoor dining area, pool and gun room.
Semi-auto and o/u rental guns from 28 ga. to 12 ga. will be available. Beretta/Benelli/Browning are the common brands carried. Shells selections include Argentine and imported that are species appropriate. A recoil reduction device to ease the shooting impact and ear/eye protection are imperative.
There are daily flights from the UK to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival at Buenos Aires you will transfer to the domestic airport (Jorge Newberry) and connect with commercial flights to Santa Rosa. For those interested in private charter service, we can quote a schedule from Buenos Aires to the airstrip at General Pico. It’s a 30-minute drive to Kono Lodge from there.
