Duck hunting at our lodges in Uruguay takes place from dry-land blinds, set alongside our water impoundments such as ponds, channels, or lagoons. Decoys are set and downed birds are retrieved by your guides at the completion of shooting.

While perdiz are the main focus at our lodges in Uruguay, duck hunting is quite good and offers a great variety of species seen nowhere else outside of South America.

Los Crestones Lodge also offers a limited number of dry ground blinds, in addition to many “wet” blinds, which are set in the ponds and marshes.
