Punta del Este is commonly known as the Riviera of South America. It combines great beaches with sophisticated restaurants, casinos, and shopping, all just a few miles from spectacular walk-up shooting for perdiz over dogs and high-volume decoyed pigeon shooting. Where else can you fire your shotgun all day and eat fresh seafood or an extraordinary barbecue at a seaside bistro by night? Arrive at the international airport in the morning and shoot perdiz all afternoon. On the day of departure enjoy a final exciting pigeon or perdiz shoot in the morning and leave for the airport after lunch.
Posada de Piedra Lodge is situated just 10 minutes away from several shooting areas, surrounded by fields and a minute away from the Atlantic Ocean, where you can enjoy one of the best ocean views and sunsets of Punta del Este. We can accommodate up to 8 hunters in 6 exclusive suites.
Perdiz is a world-class upland game bird hunted over well trained pointers. These birds hold very well in ground cover that many times is no higher than your ankles. Perdiz do not covey, and are usually flushed as singles, or occasionally in pairs, but they are very challenging. Your mouth will water as our chef serves you a delicious dish of freshly prepared perdiz. Pigeon shooting takes place in harvest corn fields or sorghum plantations.
Fields and plantations are constantly scouted by experienced guides. Your personal guide will construct your blind from natural brush, place a nice spread of decoys within gunning range and then position themselves a short distance away so to assist you with gun loading, shells or just serve you a hot cup of coffee or a cold beer.
