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 which provides for incredible decoying. 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. Hunters can expect to shoot 6 boxes in a half-day shoot.

Dove presentations are limitless each day and, hunters can expect to shoot well over 100 boxes per day at doves during the prime time ,November thru April. Driving times to the shooting areas are not more than 30 minutes.
