Welcome to Realtree Global Wing Shooting, the brand new series where we visit the finest game lodges in the world. During these epic adventures we experience some of the best wing shooting available.
Episode Two – We join Realtree Chief of International Pro-Team Ian Harford, for an epic adventure, pigeon shooting in the Córdoba Province of Argentina at David Denies Montaraz Lodge with Ian Coley Sporting and Frontiers Travel.
Decoyed Pigeons are the specialty at Montaraz, and Córdoba is considered one of the best pigeon shooting regions in South America. The 50 square mile area (80 km) surrounding the lodge is annually inhabited by more than 5 million pigeons.
Wild pigeons are both large and fast, which makes calculating their speed for your lead a bit deceptive. Pigeons are also wary birds, and there is an element of hunting involved that makes the shooting closer to decoying ducks than shooting doves. Staying hidden and still in a good blind, is the key to success.
