Guayascate- The Lodge
Introduction- There comes a time when something new emerges that begs your attention, something that totally alters your previous expectations and demands that you must go and experience it for yourself. Well that time has arrived and we invite you to come and verify what we already know, that the best wingshooting lodge in Argentina is now open for business.
Thousands of traveling sportsmen visit Argentina every year and why not, it’s safe, beautiful and offers the best wingshooting destinations in the world. For those who love their dove shooting, the Cordoba Province is the crème de la crème of dove shooting as verified by hundreds of publications. It is here in the northern woods of Cordoba where Guayascate is located.
The outfitter for Guayascate are brothers Alex and Zeke Hayes who form the reputable H&H Outfitters
offering the best dove shooting trips in Cordoba for over 20 years. Trek Safaris is proud to partner with H&H to promote this exciting new property that will revolutionize the upscale shooting market for many years to come. It is through their experiences of owning and operating four other deluxe lodges in Cordoba that inspired them to create this wonderful new masterpiece.
It is estimated that there are over 35 million eared dove in the Cordoba Province and climbing. Due to its rich agriculture and lack of natural predators, the dove here are actually a pest to farmers and the general populace so hunters are a welcome sight to the region. It is doubtful you will ever encounter so many dove in a single moment, hour or day than what you will see here in the Piquillin trees where the eared dove roosts. In fact, the property at Guayascate is actually full of these Piquillin roosts making drives to the fields a matter of minutes in most cases. Unless you request it, you will not shoot the same fields twice. Hunting season is year round and we
are offering three and four day hunts.
The Accommodations- Guayascate is 18,000 square feet of pure luxury with ten expertly appointed rooms that allow group sizes to be small and intimate with single rooms or double up for as much fun as you wish. The exterior design of local Mora rock and Quebracho hardwoods, contrasts smartly with the magic of one of the best interior designers in Buenos Aires who has left her touches of contemporary patterns of leather, tapestries and local artifacts throughout the lodge. With huge windows and doors framed in beautiful Quebracho, the sunlight is your friend in most areas of the lodge and highlights the cleanest of looks.
