The Lodge

The Santa Rita lodge is an incredible Basque mountain style mansion built in 1923. The 16,000 square foot, three story lodge is full of much history from its storied past. They offer guests seven spacious rooms all with a private bathroom—six double rooms and one single room—with a maximum of thirteen hunters.

The lodge prefers intact groups of six to eight hunters and a group of a minimum of six hunters will enjoy private use of the lodge therefore ensuring each hunter has a private room. All the rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated fitting perfectly into the peaceful setting of the Buenos Aires Province countryside.

About The Hunt

The Shooting

Ideally located in the fertile Pampa region in the province of Buenos Aires, Santa Rita is home to an incredible duck population. Our hunts take place on the numerous potholes, lagoons, marshes and sloughs that surround the lodge.

Increased rainfall and agricultural production over the past 20 years in this region have created ideal waterfowl conditions by providing hundreds of marshes of varying sizes that serve as feeding and roosting areas, all of which are surrounded by grain fields.

The duck hunting areas at Estancia Santa Rita are conveniently located close to the lodge with drive times from 10 minutes to 50 minutes. Several blinds are within view of the house and require less than a 10-minute drive.

The areas around Estancia Santa Rita support a wide variety of duck species which allows for a specie rich hunt. Local species include the Southern Widgeon, Teal (Silver, Ringed, Speckled, Cinnamon and Brazilian), Yellow Billed and White Cheeked Pintail, Fulvous and White-Faced Whistling Duck and the country’s trophy duck, the Rosy Billed Pochard. Although weather, blind location, and water levels determine the makeup of a day’s take, many hunters’ bags may consist of 7-11 different species.

Hunting blinds are always dry, have stools and provide sturdy footing from which to shoot. We utilize the best equipment to maximize your hunting experience and are constantly striving to improve our methods.

Also available at Santa Rita are perdiz shoots. This upland, Chukkar-sized game bird, flushes in singles and pairs and provides a challenging target. Conducted behind Brittany Spaniels on easy walking terrain through pastures and recently harvested fields, perdiz complement the ducks by providing a more active, on-foot hunt.
