Pica Zuro Lodge

Despite its stately 19th century facade, Pica Zuro is a modern launch pad for dove hunters. It’s grand, it’s comfortable, and it’s close to the doves. At Pica Zuro short drives are the norm: the lodge is positioned to reach hundreds of private-access hunting locations within minutes. There are never...[more]

  • "First off, I think everyone in our group had a great time at Pica Zuro, we all really enjoyed all aspects of a spectacular trip.  The physical accommodations were great, the old building has great charm and is perfect for a high quality hunting lodge.  The individual rooms were first class, everything we needed.
     
    The service was great.  María at the Lodge and Facundo took care of our every need.  The food was wonderful, both in quality and quantity, María was there to make sure that if we needed anything it was provided.  Facundo handled our transportation and made sure we knew the plan for each day of our hunt.  He was involved with all of us (as María was also) and as a result we not only enjoyed their company but each member of our group knew the program, the plan for the next event and always felt fully informed.  No one to my knowledge needed anything that was not provided or answered.  
     
    The food at the hunts was really great, hard to beat good Argentine beef and pork cooked over wood fires in the field, topped off with a short nap in a hammock.  Tough life!
     
    Our field assistants were really helpful, loading the guns and making sure we had water and other things to drink.  Their very positive and professional attitude resulted in not only having someone there that was meeting our needs but also someone that we enjoyed being with and talking with.  
     
    The whole trip was really a first class experience; this was my second trip to Argentina for shooting, but I lived in Bolivia for 2 years and traveled to Argentina many times and did a lot of shooting in Bolivia.  So, I had some idea of what to expect on a first class hunt and those expectations were met or exceeded.  I don't know what you could have done to make the trip any better.  
     
    One key issue on shooting trips is guns.  The lack of sufficient quality or quantity of guns can ruin a trip of this kind.  Fortunately you had good shotguns, a good variety and were able to make changes or substitutions not only for mechanical problems that are to be expected with this kind of high volume shooting, but also to provide a variety when we wanted to just shoot something different.  
     
    Thanks to all your staff for making our hunt a really enjoyable experience.  PS, the photo book we had the opportunity to purchase at the end ( I think all of our group made the purchase) was a special treat for us to take home and show our family and friends, as well as just relive the great adventures.   "

  • "Thank you very much for the warm hospitality and wonderful service.  Chad and I had a great hunting experience with your staff at Pica Zuro, and we will be coming back in the future.
    Please extend our warm wishes to all the field staff and especially Guillermo for providing us with such a wonderful time.  The food was so delicious and there was so much of it that we both gained weight on the trip!  Thank you once again for taking such good care of us.

    Hasta luego,"

    Steven R.

    Steve and Steven R.

  • "I’d like to thank all David Denies organization for the most wonderful opportunity to hunt at Pica Zuro last week. The trip more than exceeded every hope and expectation I had. From the service, to the meals, to the shooting, everything was perfect. Never could I imagine shooting over 4200 rounds in 3.5 days! The lodge manager, Maria Capizzi, was an absolutely wonderful host. My field assistant, Lucas, was a trooper, loading all 4200+ shells for me, even on a 101+ degree day. All the field assistants and lodge staff treated us like royalty. I would have to say this trip ranked in the top three vacations I’ve ever been on (the other two being my honeymoon and 10 year anniversary)!You can most certainly use me as a reference for David Denies as I can’t imagine anyone having less than a spectacular time.

    Most sincerely,"

Shooting was outrageous given the quantity of birds plus was most enjoyable, especially for my sons. I would (and have) recommend this trip/lodge to friends for a magnificent hunting opportunity."

La Dormida Lodge

It’s not fair to play favorites. But while we love all our lodges, clients often tell us La Dormida is theirs. Maybe it’s the dusk-todawn dove flights, where birds cross the landscape daily—in waves measured in miles. Or perhaps it’s short drives to the rolling hills. Or the opulent field...[more]

  • "A season to remember!
    For reasons only a true & seasoned waterfowler could understand, the past week at Jacana has been added into the top 5 of greatest experiences I've had the privilege to share with others. In the my book of records of pursuing various passions, and where I've been blessed with many fantastic & unique experiences since 1959, no one could have scripted what unfolded for all of us this season.  I am convinced from prior experiences, this would not have occurred without the Master of details, Charlie, orchrastrating the music as he has for many a year.
    You see most guns show up, expecting & thoroughly enjoying the incredible wing shooting found in Argentina. Then just as quickly, jump on a plane traveling to somewhere else. Excluding issues beyond anyone's control or the awareness of just how difficult it is for all outfitters in Argentina to provide normal simple tasks hunters expect, we're a breed that more often than not, take many of their daily difficulties & tasks as a grain of salt, not realizing that simple gun replacement parts are next to impossible to obtain, and few bring their own to shoot.
    So when the stardards are raised over & above all the others, and I've tried many others around the Globe, from where I sit Jacana sets the Gold standard for all others to follow and has since I first started going there about a decade ago.
    The week we were there saw waterfowler's from novice to lifetime hunters. We all experienced the effects of major flooding, more patos in the area I have seen since about 2007 when I first shot with Jacana. The week yeilded everyting from using Buzz-Off replant to 30mph wind, rain, cold weather & duck gear. The fireplace at Jacana was a welcomed friend sharing its warmth for many.
    I've witnessed many hunters determine the success of their hunts in terms of percentages or harvests. Once I too viewed that as ruler. Nowadays & more important to me is to view the marsh's wildlife, that's  a beautiful thing. Harvests are just but part of the overall experience specially if one is in sync with their shooting abilities.
    Actually for me it falls into the bottom third of the total experience. The amigos sharing the hunts is for sure another part & the final part are those intangibles or unexpected things one hasn't anticipated.
    But the bottom line in all of what was previously mentioned, this area's bounty would have not been accessible if it were not for the laborious 'behind-the-scenes' efforts of Charlie & the staff he has assemnled. It's a business after all where everything is about to break, broken, under repair or parts are unobtainable & the Lodge is full of gringos who are less than understanding their Lodge rental autoloaders are rendered to single shot guns. Furthermore, hiring competent staff for such a speciality activity is totally  foriegn to Argentinos, it has to be very difficult, duck calls aren't easily found South of Texas.

    I so do enjoy Cordoba & where the World's finest paloma experiences are found as well. For me it is in the beautiful hills north of the city that maintain some 70,000,000 birds. My first Argentina wing shooting occurred with Horacio & Jack at Pico Zuro & now continue at La Dormida. I wouldn't miss a season because of their expertise either.
    As we know hunting patos is a much different operation than palomas. Besides Jack & Horacio may have a difficult time shooting ducks, their too big! Hahaha! But seriously, they all have issues to deal with but constantly deliver the finest & highest quality wing shooting experiences found anywhere. But the pato outfitter has a short season, deals with such adverse elements & conditions. Charlie has mastered his elements & somehow manages to provide his clientele with outstanding experiences.
    Life simply would not be complete if I were no longer able to return to this wonderful country and visit those that have been such a great part of my family's pass time. I know dad & my wife Kathy dearly miss being here, I hope that one day Kathy will return & dad does through the eyes of his son whose eternally greatful he always had time to take his son hunting & fishing.
    Thank you Charlie, what you have created with Jacana for your clients is without a doubt amongst life's top 5 experiences for me. Not only am I proud to tell others about Jacana, I can't wait for next season so I  can return to hunt with you again.
    Maybe next time, you'll be so kind as to allow me to dispatch your cripples, hahaha!
    Your friend & devoted client,"

  • "Food, service, accommodations, hunt, guns were all first class for me!  Had a wonderful time—way exceeded my expectations, and will definitely use David Denies for any future hunts.  I’d love to bring my son in a couple years when he gets a bit older (14 right now). "


    Shawn C.

  • "Your team at Jacana did a great job while we were there.   We just
    returned from South Africa bird hunting  north of Pretoria, SA on The Rovos Rail.   Your service was great, accommodations were more than we expected,
    plenty of ducks, pretty damn good guides, great food but the drives to hunt
    were a little long.   My son and I will be back and perhaps bring some
    others.   The other thing is 4 hours from BA to Jacana is a long drive.
    Next time we will arrange a helicopter or a plane.  All in all we had a
    great time.  I hope that you and your staff got your tips from us.  Thanks a
    million for contacting me to see how we like our experience and oh by the
    way thanks again for copying the music for me.  I play it often. 
    "


    D. Fred de Roode

  • "Amazing trip.  Well worth it.  The volume and quality if the shooting was great.  Having such beautiful birds finish into the decoys over and over again isn’t something we get back home.  Amazing habitat and good guides as well.  Frank was very, very good and made the experience very enjoyable.  You could tell he enjoyed it as much as I did.  His knowledge of local wildlife, etc, even the non-duck life, was amazing.  The food was very good as was the ability to control the AC in the room.  Courtney really liked the horseback ride as well.
     
    The Clothing & Equipment section on the attached doesn’t make it clear when it mentions waders that they have some at the lodge.  That would have made packing much more easier.  Maybe also note that waders can be provided in the important accessories for the field section of the same document.  Maybe also ask the hunter about choke selection before they go out?  I’m not very knowledgeable about chokes for lead, but maybe let the guest know what chokes are in the gun standard?   
     
    Regards,"

  • "Cory and I had a great time at Jacana!!!   It was soooo worth it !
    #1- The lodge was beautiful, great rooms very clean and comfortable.
    #2- Service was  10, you guys had everything waiting for us or made it a priority to get what we wanted.
    #3- Food was awesome, you had a great staff in the kitchen, I give it a 10.
    #4- The service in the field was good, nice trucks and with that amount of mud and water we had during our stay it was amazing we got to our destinations.
    #5- The guides were great, got us on the birds and were excited to hunt every day.  The only thing that was a issue was the English barrier but we got through it and we needed to brush up on our Spanish too.
    #6- We were in awe on the amounts of birds, it was like nothing we have ever seen before. Great bunch of guys,  it was just amazing!!
    #7- Thinking back I cant recall much I would change, it was just a great time. One thing does stick out- the robo duck batteries, but I think you guys fixed that at the end. Keep up the good work you guys made the trip outstanding.
     
    Thank you again for giving us a hunt that will always be in our memories, it will not be the last time you see us. We will be coming back!!
     I would love to bring a whole group of friends and family next time.

I would say this lodge had the best service, food, and accommodations. It was lacking a hot tub which would have been nice. I know we have been to Pico Zuro before and after the hot tub was added. A hot tub would be a nice addition at Los Crestones. Claudio was the best host and kept us fully entertained with his cruise ship stories.
