About Us

Welcome to David Denies Bird Hunting, a family of bird-hunting lodges across Argentina & Uruguay.

As part of The Kautapen Group collection of lodges, we’re also proud to offer world-class Big Game Hunting – with Red Stag Patagonia – and Fly Fishing experiences – with Nervous Waters – across Argentina, Chile, and The Bahamas.

Our lodges are beautifully appointed and staffed with the finest chefs in South America, who will delight your taste buds with exquisite cuisine. Join us for a one-of-a-kind bird hunting adventure, where our passion for hunting is matched only by our commitment to exceptional service and unforgettable experiences.

Our Collection


The Kautapen Group (TKG) is a boutique collection of 25 fishing and hunting lodges spanning Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, and the Bahamas. Since 1984, we’ve built decades of experience as industry leaders in luxury sporting travel. We are proud to continue to offer our guests a level of service matching and exceeding the finest boutique hotels in the world, each with a unique personality.

Attention to detail is our highest priority in the lodge and the field. Every property has been carefully curated to give our guests direct access to the highest quality sporting opportunities, and luxurious accommodations that allow guests to unwind and recharge after the day’s adventures.

Giving Back

David Denies has a rich history of social responsibility in the communities where we work and live. Since 1985, our motto has been “investing money in people”. This guiding philosophy is all about enriching the lives of local youth and elderly people in need. It means encouraging employee voluntarism in the region. And it’s a mission that’s constantly evolving. Our commitment to being great corporate citizens takes place in four core areas.

Fast and unpredictable, both the Spotted and Pica Zuro pigeons provide an altogether different test to the doves.
Strategically placed, well constructed blinds overlooking a decoy spread on newly harvested grain fields, this what decoyed pigeon hunting at La Torcaza Lodge is all about.
