Argentina Pigeon Hunt
We made it to the Montaraz Lodge – the pigeon lodge. After a light lunch, we were off to the pigeon fields.
Hunting pigeons in Argentina is so much fun since it is like hunting ducks without the water. They will actually come to the decoys and when you kill one, the bird boys go out and put it on a stick so it becomes a real decoy.
The birds are very challenging. You don’t think they are flying very fast because they are so big and they don’t make any sound. You look up and they are just there.
This is where Gil and I put in our full chokes and shoot the ShotKam. So, look on the Knowledge Vault for new videos that are coming as soon as we get time to do that.
This lodge was built in 1603 and has so much history. It makes this part of the trip really special. Once again, we ate, drank great wine, and hunted for four days. What a life!
Back in the van to go to the airport and come home so we could go fishing, but Harvey had a different idea.
So, two days of fishing and our little tropical storm became a Category 3 hurricane coming into Texas 50 miles west of our bay house. We will be on the dirty side, so we packed up everything of value and got the two boats on the trailers, and headed for Houston to safety.
I will let you know how that turns out.
