Duck Hunting in Argentina
Waves and Waves of Ducks
No, it’s not a dream. Duck hunting in Argentina is like no other duck hunt on the planet. Miles of grain fields, marshes, and potholes attract vast numbers of ducks that have never seen a hunter. These ideal conditions make our private ranches a place where multiple species of duck thrive during their annual migration patterns. At Rancho Salvaje, we know where to position you to have the best shot at taking Rosy-Billed Pochard, Red Shovelers, Brazilian Speckled Teal, Silver Teal (Cappuccino Teal) , Cinnamon Teal, White-Cheeked Pintail, Yellow-Billed Pintail, Black-Bellied Tree Duck, and Chiloe Widgeon. And we put you in the right position to be able to take your limit.

Taking Ducks of Argentina Home
One of the most common requests in Argentina duck hunting is for handling the ducks carefully enough so that they can be stuffed. It’s easy to understand how hunters want to take home these beautiful ducks to display on their wall or mantle. Our experienced guides can skin and prepare these beautiful birds for your taxidermist at home, taking care not to damage the feathers.
The Silver Teal, Red Shoveler, and Chiloe Widgeon are incredible mounts next to their cousins from the north. You can also shoot for the pintail trifecta, so called because it’s made up of the North American Pintail and two pintail ducks common to Argentina (White-Cheeked Pintail and Yellow-Billed Pintail). The three species of ducks create a fantastic display any duck hunter will appreciate. These three birds represent all species of American pintails and make an impressive mount sure to draw comments and questions. Just be sure to send your friends to Rancho Salvaje on their next Argentina duck hunting trip!
