Uruguay is often referred to as the hidden jewel of South America. Its geography spans from golden beaches along the Atlantic coast to vast interior grasslands and wetlands, creating perfect habitats for a wide range of game species.

The country is considered one of the world’s premier destinations for high-volume dove hunting, with populations reaching into the millions, ensuring non-stop action for visiting hunters. Perdiz hunting, conducted over pointers in a traditional walk-up style, offers a more relaxed yet equally rewarding experience, with the native perdiz providing a challenging target amid the beautiful Uruguayan countryside. Waterfowl enthusiasts will find Uruguay a paradise with plentiful ducks populating the country’s extensive marshes and lagoons, offering diverse and abundant shooting opportunities. Hunting in Uruguay is highly organized and professional. Outfitters offer a range of packages that typically include all necessary permits, lodging in comfortable estancias or hunting lodges, gourmet local cuisine, and transport to and from hunting areas.

Additionally, Uruguay’s hunting lodges often combine luxury with tradition, providing a comfortable and authentic stay. Travel to Uruguay is straightforward, with international airports welcoming flights from major cities around the world.
