Argentina Dove Hunting - Los Gauchos Outfitters

Choosing shotgun shells and choke tubes for your Argentina dove hunt can be confusing to say the least.

Here is a quick lesson on what the dove ammo terms mean and what Los Gauchos uses and what Cordoba dove hunting lodges offer. Using as an example shotload: 8 shot, 1 oz, 2 3/4 in lead heavy dove load.

The first number, #8 shot, is size of the shot, the bigger the #, the smaller the shot. The larger the number the more pellants or BB's there are in the shot shell. To figure out the actual size of the pellet, subtract the number of the shot from 17. Using the #8 shot example you would take 17-8=9. An 8 shot = 9/100 or .090″. Every pellet is .090" in 8 shot. Make sense class?

Great now you will be a pro in Cordoba when you dove hunt. 1 oz is a measure of how many ounces of pellets there are. Again the smaller the pellet, the greater number that will fit into the shot shell. For instance, in 7.5 shot there are 350 pellets, and in 8 shot there are 410 pellets (in a 1oz load). 2 3/4″ is the length of the shell. Some shotguns shoot up to 3.5″, but remember you are shooting doves, not 767 airplanes.

Lead is the main ingredient of a shotgun shells. Lead is best for shooting the high volume of doves you will find in Cordoba.

The dove loads for Cordoba. You will want 7.5 to 8 shot when dove hunting in Cordoba. If you are new to shooting go with the eight shot / 1 1/8 oz and up load, 2 3/4″ shot shell. This load will give you a good pattern for the doves in Cordoba and increase the odds of shooting more doves. When it comes to the rate of shotgun shells in Cordoba, the more ounces, the higher the rate of the shell costs. Other factors that reflect the price of ammo for Cordoba dove hunts include the brand. Many of the Los Gauchos Outfitters Cordoba lodges use high quality European brands and the best loads, best ingredients for the best dove hunt experience. Make sure to budget for the heavier loads to add more firepower to your Cordoba dove hunt. It is much more important to have good fundamental shooting skills than to rely on an expensive bullet to make up for some "rusty" shooting skills.

For the Argentina dove hunting trip, you will want to decide which choke to use. Most modern shotguns have screw in, interchangeable choke tubes including: full choke, modified choke, and improved cylinder. Contrary to popular belief among wingshooters, the chokes have nothing to do with how far a shotgun shoots. Many dove hunters will put a full choke on their shotgun thinking it will allow them to shoot a longer distance, but this is not true.

A full choke will hold the pattern of shot in a more secure pattern at a greater distance, for a denser amount of shot entering your target - the game bird. The full choke is good for geese, pheasant and other large game birds, but if you try to hit a dove coming across you from 20-28 yards out at MACH 2 with a full choke on your shotgun, you better line everything up right and still hope for some luck. Bottom line, unless you are an expert shot-gunner or wing-shooter a full choke will cause you a lot of frustration and missed shots.

The modified choke is a common choke used when dove hunting. It opens up better in the closer ranges than a full choke will, but holds a condensed pattern. Most dove shooting should take place at less than 35 yards, the best choke to use for dove shooting is the improved cylinder. Improved cylinder chokes gives the wing-shooter the widest pattern that is will drop the doves.
