The province of Bahia Blanca offers the finest duck hunting in the world. The agriculture, combined with a large number of potholes, sloughs and marshes, make for extensive duck habitat. In wet years water levels are high and ducks pullulate; in dry years water levels drop, and some potholes even dry up. Some ducks move elsewhere but those that remain are concentrated on fewer potholes. Either way, the visiting shooter wins out.
Bahia Blanca enjoys a moderate climate, with short, mild winters and long, hot summers. The duck season runs May through early August.
Many clients have asked us to offer combined hunts where they can experience two of more types of wingshooting.
