SHAWN LUCAS: BUFFALO AND DOVES
An incredible adventure: 2 days of Big Game at Rincon chasing a Monster Buffalo, and 4 days of Dove Shooting at La Loma.
Just a quick note back to all of you to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to your lodges in Argentina. The country was beautiful, the people were friendly, the lodges were comfortable and well-maintained. I shouldn’t have been surprised but the food was one of the most pleasing aspects of all.
My first impression was Juan picking me up at the airport. He has that great personality which makes you think you’ve known each other your whole life. He was beside me every step of the way on what turned out to be a pretty rigorous hunt for that buff beast. We had great camaraderie along with Oscar as we positioned, photographed then succeeded in carving up that great one-ton beast and getting it loaded in the truck.
Jesus may be the perfect lodge manager. Very polite and accommodating and welcoming. His culinary talents were fantastic. I’m glad the weather cooperated on the one day we needed it too and relaxing on the deck of Rincon with a glass of bourbon as the sun settled over the valley was spectacular.
La Loma was no less impressive. A great staff of people and many unexpected surprises like the champagne welcome on return from our first day of dove shoot. The field meals were maybe the most surprising. I could never imagine such fine cuisine being prepared at the field site. The chosen dove sites were top notch. They each had their own charms and the variety made each day different from the last.
I will highly recommend your operations and hope for a return trip in the not too distant future.
