Argentina might be most famous for its high-volume dove hunting, but waterfowl enthusiasts know that the duck hunting in Argentina is also the best in the world. Argentina duck hunting offers an unparalleled variety of exotic species and liberal bag limits. Duck species often include a mix of the following: Rosy-billed Pochard, Yellow-billed Pintail, White-Faced Duck, Brazilian Teal, Fulvous Whistling Duck, Speckled Teal, Whistling Duck, Silver Teal, Southern Wigeon, Cinnamon Teal, Red Shoveller, White Cheeked Pintail, Ring Teal and Black-headed Duck. The Argentina duck hunting season runs May-August and the shooting is consistent throughout.
The best duck hunting in Argentina can be found in two distinct areas – the southern part of the Entre Rios province and in the far west of the Buenos Aires province along the La Pampa border. In Entre Rios, the duck hunting is done in the sprawling marshlands of the Parana and Uruguay rivers. On the Buenos Aires and La Pampa border, the duck hunting venues include flooded pastures, watering holes and small lakes. Both areas offer pristine duck habitat and limited shooting pressure.
As pioneers in the Argentina duck hunting business, we have been sharing our passion with hunters from around the world since 1986. Known as “The Godfather of Argentina Duck Hunting,” River Plate’s founder, Luis Brown, grew up hunting and fishing all over South America. After receiving his MS in the United States from the Wharton School of Finance, Brown returned to South America and opened the first of his many world-renowned hunting lodges. With 25 years of experience and exclusive rights to the best hunting areas in three different provinces, our Argentina duck hunting programs have become legendary.

For approximately 30 years River Plate has been operating hunting Estancias. Deeply experienced, & one of the pioneers in Argentina’s wingshooting history, River Plate knows Uruguay like no other. Shooting at any of their Estancias, one quickly becomes aware that the clientele mix is from experienced global sportsmen, many shooting for there 20 years, that speak volumes of the quality one is presented with, no spoiled by.
Having shot many times myself with River Plate, it is easy to see Louis Brown’s goal was to create a ‘Gold Standard’ specializing in patos with palomas y perdiz as an added bonus. Some of my earliest pato, paloma & perdiz memories rest with River Plate.
Give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed!
