Santa Rosa lodge is located approximately 150 miles or 2 ½ hour northwest from Buenos Aires’s airport. Situated within the Entre Rios agricultural area where thousands of acres are planted in corn, wheat, sunflowers and sorghum annually which provides the perfect habitat to hold birds on the property. There are 6 dove shooting areas around the property, all of which are within 10-25 minutes of the Lodge. This combination of roosting, nesting and foraging habitat provides the key elements necessary to provide the best and most conveniently located dove shooting destination. This region grants unparalleled Doves shooting by mornings as also during afternoons.

SEASONS & OPTIONS IN THIS RANCH
"AHO and his team are some of the best around! Not only are they professional but also take the time to add in traditional Argentine culture. Wing shooting was unmatched and very comfortable for both young and elderly. With accommodations for lodging and food that far exceed the standard hunt, and companionship that builds relationships for a lifetime, I wholeheartedly recommend AHO"
