Species - Perdiz, Ducks, Dove & Dorado fishing

 

 

Perdiz

 

There is nothing like the thrill of hunting perdiz behind well-trained dogs. In Uruguay perdiz hunting is an obsession and it shows. Cangue employs some of the best dog handlers in all of Uruguay- locals that have been training dogs and hunting perdiz their entire lives. This vast experience pays off in the field, with Cangue offering some of Uruguay's most consistent perdiz hunting. 

In addition to the great guides, the area's perfect habitat and abundant food make for thriving perdiz populations. 


Dorado Fishing 

 

Golden Dorado fishing is considered one of the most exciting and exhilarating types of freshwater sport fishing in the world! The Golden Dorado, nicknamed “The Tiger of the Rivers,” is the most beautiful fish that inhabits the waters of Argentina. 


Dove

 

At los Laureles not only is the dove hunting excellent year round, but is a thrilling component of the mixed-bag program that also includes duck, perdiz, and pigeon. The shooting occurs in the area's rolling green hills and farmlands, or just minutes away from the lodge. there is no dove hunting season and no bag limit! Shoulders willing, guests can expect to shoot upwards of 80 boxes per day! 

 


Duck

 

The duck hunting in Uruguay has always been good, particularly in the upper western of the country. But minimal local and commercial hunting over the years has 

limited the hunting pressure. The limited pressure, coupled with the area's huge food supply and numerous ponds, make for ideal duck hunting conditions. From late fall through the winter, this part of Uruguay is home to a variety of exotic duck species including the Rosy-Billed Pochard, White-Faced Whistling Duck, Brazilian Teal, Brown Pintail, Speckled Teal, Ringed Teal, Southern Widgeon, Cinnamon Teal and Silver Teal. Cangue guides work hard to ensure Uruguay duck hunting at its best.
