SANTA ROSA TYPICAL ITINERARY:
Day 1: Half (to three quarter) day of dove shooting
Most flight arrive early in Buenos Aires; Argentina's capital city. Travelers are received by River Plate’s ground transfer team and driven 2 ½ hours to Estancia Santa Rosa.
Enjoy a leisurely three course lunch and a "siesta". Depart lodge around 1:30 p.m. and drive 25 to 30 minutes to dove shooting field where the non-stop hot-barreled action begins. After 5-7 hours of shooting, return to the estancia for cocktails, snacks and a three course dinner.
Optional: Since flights arrive very early, your group may arrange with your host to have a lighter lunch and a longer dove hunting day instead.
Days 2-3: Two-full days of high volume dove shooting
Wake-up call is at 7:00 a.m., breakfast is served at 7:30 and shooting departure at 8:30. High volume dove shooting begins around 9:00 a.m. and continues until lunch.
After the morning shoot, guests return for cocktails, snacks, and a three course lunch or a typical Argentinean "asado" (BBQ), and then a siesta.
At 3:00 pm it's time to get back to shooting which can continue until 7:00 pm during spring (Oct.-Dec.) and until 9:00 pm during summer (Dec-Apr.).
Return to the lodge for a relaxing cocktail time while sharing stories of all the great shots made and huge volume of birds taken. A three course dinner is then served, followed by a restful night's sleep.
Optional: There is no specific rule, therefore the party may arrange with the host for some extra shooting time early morning or late afternoon or have a field lunch to maximize shooting time.
