When we opened Kono Lodge at the end of 2008, we had not fully realized the amazing wing shooting resource this location offers. Millions of doves in flights equal or more impressive than Cordoba reside here, plus excellent populations of duck, perdiz and pigeon. In Argentina, finding a high quality “mixed bagged shoot” (dove, duck, perdiz, pigeon from the same lodge) is difficult at best.
The dove shooting at Kono will equal or surpass the finest volume dove-shooting available in Argentina today. The various roosts in the area are estimated to have over 20 million doves and the population keeps growing.Most importantly, unlike Cordoba where competition is fierce and operators numerous, Kono Lodge will be the only significant dove lodge within hundreds of miles.
We feel confident that visiting Kono to experience a high-volume dove shoot or a spectacular mixed bag shoot will be among the finest wing shooting vacations available in Argentina today. Of course, your hunting is always complemented by our first class service and lodging that have brought back so many of our repeat clients back over the years. Kono Lodge is open year round for dove shoots while our mixed bag programs runs from April 15th through August 10th.
Guests staying at our new Kono Lodge (“kono” meaning “dove” in Mapuche language), will enjoy a beautiful new estancia home that is equipped to ensure our guests a world class sporting experience in Argentina’s traditional pampas region. Recently refurbished, this Spanish colonial style house with comfortable accommodations for up to 10 guests has 5 double rooms with private bathrooms, living room, dining room, galleria, outdoor dining area, pool and gun room. Laundry service and massages are available upon request.
Located in La Pampa Province, 600 km from Buenos Aires, the lodge is easily accessible from Buenos Aires on commercial flights (Mondays and Fridays only) to Santa Rosa Airport followed by 1 1/2 hour transfer to the Lodge, private ground transfer or private charter flight to General Pico Airport, 30 minutes away from the Lodge.
