The Experience

The Lodging

When considering dove hunting in Argentina, there’s “good”, and then there is Sierra Brava. Sierra Brava is in a world-class league of its own. Located only 1:20 from the Cordoba airport, the lodge is strategically located only 15 minutes from the heart of Argentina’s most desirable hunting region the Macha roost. The 9-bedroom lodge was built in 1874 as a hitching post and boarding house for South American Pony Express riders. The lodge has undergone some incredible restorations and constant renovations. These days Sierra Brava is one of the most unique dove hunting lodges in Cordoba, offering a beautiful balance between authentic old world charm and modern luxury living. All rooms are very spacious with high ceilings and each has its own private bathroom. A beautiful pool and sauna was built since clients spend more time around the lodge and less on van rides. Finally, there is a great fire pit with incredible views of the Cordoba mountains where clients recount the day’s events.

  • Lodge located only 15 minutes from the largest roost in Cordoba
  • 9 Bedrooms with 2 double beds and a private bathroom in each
  • Beautiful balance between old and modern
  • Spacious rooms with high ceilings
  • Pool ideal for summer afternoons

The Shooting

From the beginning Sierra Brava had access to the best fields in Cordoba due to personal relationships with local farmers. These personal relationships gives Sierra Brava access to 160,000 acres of Argentina’s best dove hunting fields. Besides these relationships, the lodge was conveniently located only 15 minutes from the largest roost in Cordoba. This allows for short drives and access to fields where high volume dove records are set. Sierra Brava holds the one-day individual record for most birds shot and the group record for birds shot over 3 days. Volumes are outstanding even for Cordoba standards. In addition, Sierra Brava has some of the most attentive birds boys around. This is ideal to improve your shooting and perfect for pigeon shoots. Of the three FlyWays Cordoba lodges, Sierra Brava is the only one that can organize incredibly fun decoyed pigeon shooting between May and October.
