Ear protection – foam earplugs are recommended to protect your eardrums from the loud noise shooting can cause.

Eye protection – Make sure you protect yourself from harsh ultraviolet rays with a pair of good quality sunglasses or shooting glasses.

    • You are welcome to come by yourself.
      Dove shooting in Argentina is good year round. Most people decide when to come based on their weather preferences. Please note that we have opposite seasons- When it’s Summer season in the USA, it’s winter time in Argentina. Where you thinking about travelling in a particular month/season of the year?
