Estancias La Calera & Los Barcinos

This is true high-volume duck program for serious waterfowlers. River Plate has selected three separate waterfowl habitats in Argentina, at 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours drive in opposite directions from Buenos Aires International Airport.

Three separate areas, each featuring a comfortable estancia, ensure that any given season, water levels will be ideal four our guest’s hunt, regardless of the ever-changing rainfall.

Approximately 20 days prior to opening day, we select the optimal location for our duck hunts, inform you of your destination, and immediately begin our feeding program at every one of our duck blinds within a 30 minute drive from the estancia.

Los Barcinos is Just 80 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the fertile lands of this vast river basin with its many potholes, river channels, and canals are the winter home to millions of ducks and is some of the most fertile land in Argentina producing corn, soybeans and other cereal crops. Duck varieties include speckled teal, silver teal, cinnamon teal, ring teal, Brazilian teal, brown pintail, white cheek pintail, and rosy-billed pochard. Hunters can expect eight boxes of shells per day on ducks. Virtually all shooting areas are within 30 minutes of the estancia.
