JacanaLodge Buenos Aires, Argentina
Duck Hunting

The David Denies Duck Program draws on the hundreds of years of combined experience our staff brings to the table in guiding, outfitting, and preparing bird hunting programs for discriminating hunting guests. Duck hunting here features comfortable and well camouflaged dry blinds, quality specie-specific decoys, and all the boats, vehicles and trucks to get you to where the ducks are each day.

Guides place you where you need to be to get the kind of duck hunting you’ve only dreamed of until now. We hunt twice a day, morning and evening, and there is plenty of time to unwind and relax at midday. Roads are good, and drives are short -and better yet- you can reach our duck hunting program by road from Buenos Aires.
Arrive on a morning flight from the U.S. and you’ll be hunting ducks after lunch.


  • Since 2001, our flagship duck-hunting lodge remains No. 1 in South America.
  • Only a three-and-a-half hour drive from the international airport, the best duck hunting in Argentina surrounds Jacana.
  • Ducks in the morning and afternoon, short drives, comfortable blinds, and professional guiding by our partner and Lodge Manager, Charlie Lanusse.
  • Luxurious living, à la carte menu, massages service, and open bar with imported spirits and the best Argentine wines. Like all David Denies lodges, every year we seek to improve perfection.
  • If you are a duck hunter, this lodge should be at the top of your bucket list with more than 100 blinds well distributed throughout a huge hunting area.
  • We provide guns and waders so pack light, shorter stays can be accommodated and it is ideal for a combination trips to Córdoba, or any other hunting location.
  • 2015 was our best year ever. Consistency becomes legacy.

Jacana is located in Lincoln, in the province of Buenos Aires, 300 Kilometers (185 miles) northwest from Buenos Aires City. We chose Lincoln as a destination because it has loads of ducks. More than you’ll find at any one lodge in North America. Populations are so prolific due to several factors, including proximity to migratory routes, expectational habitat, and limited pressure on the resource. Within the Lincoln area increased rainfall over the past fifteen years along with an extensive grain production have created ideal waterfowl conditions by providing vast amounts of marshes, ponds, lakes and potholes allowing superior feeding and roosting nearby.


The trip from Buenos Aires can be accomplished by road. Driving time is four hours, over good roads and through beautiful rural country. Your driver will communicate with you about stops along the way. Optionally, you may charter directly to the landing strip at Lincoln.


Located in a traditional working Estancia, Jacana is a home away from home, with stylish living spaces, large comfortable rooms, and excellent food and wine. The lodge was built specifically for hunters, it is a perfect base of operations. The lodge has a capacity of 8 hunters, with 5 double rooms, each with a private bath. There is a posh dining room, sitting room, bar, and recreation room, and each is within view of a large fireplace. The usual amenities include: telephone, Internet access, and satellite TV, maid and laundry service, a masseuse, and the gift shop offers local artwork and crafts, logo wear, and accessories.


Our kitchens come to life through the use of fresh and regionally representative meats and produce. By combining these elements, we create delicious flavors and varied textures that harbor hidden stories and package traditions on each plate. A top-notch team of experienced national and international chefs, trained in both classic and avant-garde culinary techniques, execute our food. With an artisan’s touch, chefs prepare every dish by scratch to be served at a minute’s notice.

Days start with a hearty breakfast that includes a variety of homemade bread, jam, meadow honey, fresh fruit, natural yogurts, and cereals. We also offer eggs prepared any one of six ways, porridge, French toast, or the daily special. Our chefs at Jacana Lodge use only the highest quality local meats. This game is prepared and presented during midday barbecues (asados), following appetizers such as grilled duck. The evening meal is a celebration of fine dining in a casual setting, and it is a chance for our house chefs to really shine. Again, options are a la carte, so if you are enjoying our famous beef and wish to enjoy a steak each evening, we’ll happily grill one to order, but if you’d dare be a bit more adventurous and wish to try Risotto with calamari ink, or grilled trout with tomato puree, then we’d encourage you to sample our specialty dishes. Finally, there are the desserts. Each day brings a new creation, from flan to our local delight, dulce de leche, plus fruit, homemade ice creams, and pies.


Our lunch and dinner menus are paired with some of Argentina’s—and the world’s—best wines, from Bodega Catena Zapata. We celebrate our Argentine heritage with a wine partnership that brings truly world-class wines to our lodges. We feel that the food we present and the wines we serve should mirror the sporting opportunities we offer—and be the very best available. Boasting many accolades from the wine community at large, a Bodega Catena Zapata wine recently received a “number four in the world” icon ranking from Wine Advocate. These are truly great wines that compete on the world stage and in addition to enjoying your sporting holiday and our excellent menus, we hope you will also take note of our wines. They hold a special place in our culture and we are proud to serve them to you.


Alcoholic Beverages / Tobacco Importation

Two bottles of liquor and two cartons of cigarettes can be taken into Argentina duty-free. Our suggestion is that you purchase these at the airport before departure. If there is any special brand of liquor that you like we recommend that you purchase it at the duty-free.

There are 13 common duck species in this area of Argentina known as the central lowlands or wet pampas. A fine book on all of the bird species, including the waterfowl, is Tito Narosky’s Birds of Argentina and Uruguay, which is available from many bookstores and online retailers. Most all whistle, except for the Pochard which purrs, or burrs like the Canvasback.



SIRI COLORADO – Dendrocygna Bicolor  (38 cm)

The Fulvous Whistling-Duck is one of the most widespread waterfowl species in the world. It breeds across tropical regions such as Central and South America and north to the Gulf Coast of the U.S. Although they are common, they are also considered wary. They are largely resident, apart from local movements, but vagrancy has occurred to southern Europe. Habitat includes freshwater lakes, paddy fields, and reservoirs with plentiful vegetation, where they feed nocturnally on seeds and other plant parts. Fulvous Whistling-Ducks have long grey bills and long heads and legs. The head and underparts are buff, and wings are dark grey and black. Tail and wing patches are chestnut, and there is a white crescent on the upper tail, which is visible in flight. All plumages are similar, except for juveniles with less contrasted flank and tail coloration. This species is gregarious and forms large flocks at favored sites. As the name implies, these are noisy birds with a clear whistling “kee-wee-ooo” call.



PATO GARGANTILLA – Anas Bahamensis (35 cm)

The White Cheeked Pintail or Bahama Pintail (Anas bahamensis) is a dabbling duck of the Caribbean, South America, and the Galápagos
Islands. This is the court jester of South American ducks, with a bright, showy costume. Their overall color is cinnamon, but the body features a creamy white trim that extends from low on the throat to the base of a red bill, all edged in turquoise iridescence. Wings are blackish, with a green speculum that contrasts with the red bill. White Cheeked Pintails are dabblers, feeding on aquatic plants and small invertebrates. Nesting occurs on the ground under vegetation and near water. They are found on waters with a degree of salinity: such as brackish lakes, estuaries, and mangrove swamps.



PATO CAPUCCINO – Anas Versicolor  (31 cm)

The Silver Teal’s range includes southern Bolivia, southern Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands, and the Falkland Islands. The southernmost birds migrate to southern Brazil in the winter. Silver Teals are generally placid ducks but are protective of eggs, their young, and females. They have a black cap that extends below the eyes, and a bluish bill with a yellow tip. They also have a green speculum with a white border.




SIRI PAMPA – Dendrocygna Viduata (38 cm)

The White-faced Whistling Duck (Dendrocygna viduata) is a whistling duck, that breeds in sub-Saharan Africa and much of South America. This species is gregarious and, at favored sites, flocks of a thousand or more birds show at dawn and are an impressive sight. As the name implies, these are noisy birds with a clear three-note whistle. These ducks have long grey bills, long heads, and longish legs. They have white faces and crowns, and black rear heads. The back and wings are dark brown to black, and the underparts are black—although the flanks have fine white barring. The neck is chestnut. All plumages are similar, except juveniles have a much less contrasted head pattern. Habitat consists of freshwater lakes or reservoirs, with plentiful vegetation where this duck feeds on seeds and other plant food. These abundant ducks are largely resident, apart from localized movements of up to 100 km or more.


PATO OVERO –  Anas Sibilatrix  (45 cm)

The Chiloe Wigeon is one of three species of wigeon in the dabbling duck genus Anas. Unlike other wigeons, the sexes appear similar (although drakes are slightly brighter) and pairs are monogamous. This bird has a metallic green head and a gray bill with a black tip. Its breast is barred black-and-white and its sides are orange-brown. It has white cheeks, a white forehead, and white on its wings. These ducks are found in southern South America on freshwater lakes, marshes, lagoons, and slow-flowing rivers. They breed in the Falkland Islands, Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile, and migrate to southeastern Brazil for winter.




PATO BARCINO – Anas Flavirostris (33 cm)

Similar to other teal, Speckled Teals belong to the diverse genus Anas. More precisely, they are one of the “true” teals of subgenus Nettion. Their DNA sequence is similar to the Green-winged Teal—although the two species share a little outward resemblance. Apart from its relationship with red and green-headed teals, Speckled Teals closely resemble Indian Ocean Teals. But their uni-colored underside and namesake bill are unique.




PATO COLORADO – Anas Cyanoptera  (33 cm)

The Cinnamon Teal is a small reddish dabbling duck found in the marshes and ponds of western North and South America. Adult males have a cinnamon-red head, a brown back, red eyes, and a dark bill. Adult females have mottled brown bodies, a pale brown head, brown eyes, and a grey bill. They are similar in appearance to female Blue-winged Teals; however, their overall color is richer, and the lore spot, eye line, and eye-ring are less distinct. Their bill is also longer and flatter. Male juveniles resemble female Cinnamon or Blue-winged teals, but their eyes are red. These dabbling ducks survive on plants, although their diet may include mollusks and aquatic insects.



PATO PICAZO – Netta Peposaca  (47 cm)

The Rosy-billed Pochard comes from the species peposaca—derived from a Guaraní word for “showy wings.” The wings feature a broad white stripe that is only visible when stretched out. Male ducks have a distinctive red bill, while the females is slate-colored. Though classified as a diving duck, this pochard feeds more like a dabbling duck. The Rosy-bill is genetically linked to the Canvasback and the females of both species are virtually identical. The drakes are adorned in shades of black and white, with a flaming red bill featuring a fleshy knob at the base. The Rosy-billed Pochard is endemic to South America. The population in southern Argentina migrates northward during the austral winter, reaching Brazil and southern Bolivia. It is a vagrant to the Falkland Islands.



PATO DE COLLAR Callonetta Leucophys (28 cm)

The Ringed Teal is a small duck found in South American forests. It is the only species of the genus Callonetta. Usually categorized with dabbling ducks (Anatinae), this species may be closer to shelducks and belong to the subfamily Tadorninae. The Maned Duck is believed to be a close relative. Males and females remain colorful throughout the year, lacking an eclipse plumage. The drake has a rich chestnut back, pale grey flanks, and a salmon-colored breast with black speckles. A black band runs from the top of its head down to the nape. Females have an olive-brownish back with the head blotched and striated in white, with penciled barring on a pale chest and belly. Both have dark tails, a contrasting pale rump, and a distinctive white patch on the wing. Bills are grey and legs and feet are pink in both sexes. Pairs easily bond. Their calls are a cat-like “meowing” in ducks, a lingering “peewoo” in drakes.


PATO CABEZA NEGRA Heteronetta Atricapilla (34 cm)

The Black-headed Duck of South America resembles a typical diving duck—the product of convergent evolution in the ancestors of the stiff tailed ducks. Males have blackheads and mantles and paler flanks and bellies. Females are pale brown overall. They inhabit swamps, lakes, and marshes, and dabble on water plants and insects. The females lay eggs in the nests of other birds, earning them the nickname “Cuckoo Duck.” Hosts include the Rosy-billed Pochard, as well as other ducks, coots, gulls, and birds of prey. After a 21-day incubation period, ducklings fledge after a few hours before leaving their brood mates and fending for themselves.


PATO CUCHARA Anas Platalea (36 cm)

The Red Shoveler is found in southern South America, Argentina, southern Peru, southern Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands, southern Brazil, and Chile. In winter the southernmost birds migrate north to Brazil and Peru. The Red Shoveler is cinnamon in color with dark spots and a green speculum. The head and neck are grayish. They have a large dark spatula-shaped bill.



PATO MAICERO Anas Georgica 39 cm)

The Yellow-billed Pintail has a brown head and neck. Their bills are yellow with a black tip and black stripe down the middle. The tail is brownish and pointed. The upper wing is grayish-brown, and the secondaries are blackish-green. The rest of the body is buffish-brown, with varying size black spots. The species is sometimes confused with Speckled Teal but can be differentiated by yellow stripes on the bill and its larger size. Females hide their nests in vegetation close to the water and lay 4 to 10 eggs in a clutch.



PATO CUTIRI Amazonetta Brasilensis (35 cm)

The Brazilian Teal or Brazilian Duck is the only duck in the genus Amazonetta. It was formerly considered a perching duck. Today it is believed to belong to a clade of South American dabbling ducks, which includes the Crested Duck and the Bronze-winged Duck. The ducks are light brown. Drakes can be distinguished from females by their red beaks and legs, and the distinctive pale grey area on the side of the head and neck. Female limbs are much duller in color. Brazilian Teal live in pairs or in small groups of up to 20 birds. Both parents look after their hatchlings. They eat seeds, fruits, roots, and insects—while ducklings eat only insects. They can be found throughout eastern South America, from Uruguay to northern and eastern northern and eastern Argentina, Paraguay, central Venezuela, Brazil, northeastern Peru, Suriname, Guyana, French Guiana, eastern Bolivia, and eastern Colombia. Their preferred habitat consists of freshwater away from the coast, with dense vegetation nearby.


The Hunting

Duck hunting over decoys, every morning and afternoon. Thirteen species of exotic, yet familiar waterfowl.

At Jacana, it’s not just duck hunting—it is the best-decoyed waterfowling you’ll find anywhere, launched from an elegant lodge that lends comfort and character to the whole experience. Jacana sits amidst Argentina’s migratory crossroads, where birds from the north pause on their migration south, but also where birds that migrate north from Southern Argentina stop to overwinter. In an agricultural area inundated with water, it is the perfect destination for ducks, which makes it the perfect destination for duck hunters, and Jacana’s location puts the hunting program in the center of unparalleled waterfowl opportunity. Further, Jacana’s staff brings everything needed to the table to ensure success: from a fleet of trucks and boats that get hunters to the action, to a vast network of blinds—more than 100 hunting locations that are religiously rotated to make certain every hunter is on “fresh” ducks daily.


Each hunting day, groups depart the lodge early after a hearty breakfast with everything from waffles to eggs Benedict. Drives vary depending on water conditions but range from ten to forty-five minutes. Decoys will be out and ready for the hunters’ arrival. Hunters are then placed in double dry blinds, or large dry, sunken “buckets” (similar to an individual pit blind), or on platform pallet blinds. The idea is that every hunter will get in a blind that’s dry and offers good footing, leading to a comfortable outing.

Hunting over decoys starts at first light and continues until 10 a.m. or later. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departures at about 3 p.m. for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts are often conducted within the confines of the lodge property, so drives are generally shorter. They last until dark when guests return to the lodge for drinks and dinner.


Many of our guests find that renting guns from the lodge they are visiting to be an easier solution than applying for consular permits and traveling with their own shotguns. It's easy to rent a gun from the lodge. We have a good selection of guns that are appropriate for the destination at each lodge. Just browse the gun rack until you find a gun that you like. Then, the lodge manager or your guide will note the specific number of the rental gun. That gun will be yours for the duration of your stay. However you are welcome to change guns along the way and try something different if you wish. You are only charged for one rental so you can switch guns if you wish. We want you to shoot a gun you are comfortable and effective with! You will settle up for the rental at the end of your stay, when you are charged for shells and other expenses.

Here is a listing of the guns we have at the lodge presently:
