“WORLD RECORD!!! It was an unbelievable experience I will share for years to come. Thank you so much for your help! The trip went off without a hitch, and did I mention…WORLD RECORD!!!”
- R. Neal
"We had a great time at your Lodge Feb 1-5, 2011. On a score of 1-10, 10 being the best I would rate the following:
Wing shooting 10
Good setup for opportunity and challenge of shooting stands 10
Condition of shooting fields 10
Bird Boys 10
Equipment (guns and ammo) 10
Bedrooms 8 (I prefer single rooms over 2 guy in a room)
Staff service 10+
Wine and alcohol 10
I hope you can see the whole trip exceeded my expectation. We especially appreciate you flexibility on our schedule. There were a lot of little things like having a server ready with chilled wet washcloths as you get off the truck coming in from shooting that added punch to the quality of the service at your lodge. Without question, this won’t be my last trip to you place."

“I had been hunting in Argentina four times previously. This, by far, exceeded all the others in the dove hunting, service and food. My guests were equally impressed and all of us will tell all of our hunting friends of our outstanding experience. Not to mention, we will go back ourselves when time allows. Also, the flight bookings, pick-ups and drop-offs were all well coordinated quite well. Plus, the professionalism, courtesy, and follow through from your office really came into play from beginning to end! I thank you and my son Michael and my friend Jeff also thank you. We will check with you first when planning other type trips in the future.”

"We had a fantastic time!!!!! I had the best hunt ever. I couldn't believe how many birds there were. I'd always been told by the outfitters east of Cordoba that the dove hunting north of Cordoba was just not as good. Were they ever wrong. I was able to set personal records for most birds on a hunt, most birds in a day, most birds in an afternoon and highest shooting percentage (82%). WOW!!!
Your staff and facilities are really great. You've done an excellent job at some of the small things, like having a hot towel waiting when you get back to the lodge. I'm ready to go back.
My wife also had a fantastic experience. She has just taken up hunting in the last two years and she asked me to tell you how much she enjoyed the whole experience. It also helped her shooting. The first day she shot about 25% and the last morning she was close to 50%."

“It was an incredible trip, one that I will never forget! It was a long trip there, but well worth the effort. The hospitality was excellent, the accommodations very comfortable and the hunting was awesome! Thanks for a very memorable experience!”
- R. Mays
"Thank you for all you did to help Donna and our family put together this trip. We all had a blast and the trip was fantastic. Everyone from here to BA, Cordoba, Chanares, and back could not have been any better. You have a fantastic team of people and they take care of business first class. After my grandson, Cole Bailey, put a hurt on the birds, 5046, you may have to rest the place for a while. If you have anyone who needs the latest update on the place or feedback don't hesitate to call me. "

“Our trip to Sierra Brava was great! It was first class all the way. Juan, Alex and the entire staff took great care of everything. From the moment we got off the airplane until we left, it was fantastic! I have already recommended this trip to other people and hope to go back again sometime soon.”
- S. Kasprzak
“I guess I said it best down there at dinner, when marveling at the service and accommodations, I said to fellow hunter in our group…”What more can they possibly do?”. First rate, first class, gracious, organized, efficient, no stone left unturned…My son and I just had a fabulous time. Also, wow, I was happy and proud, esp of my son…on his first bird hunting trip he gets 1000 dove award and a commemorative hat. This is something he will always remember when he is an older guy like me, his Dad, and can tell his grandkids many years from now after I am long gone. A priceless memory! We have his hat displayed in our hunting trophy room here at the house. Thanks!”
– Dr. Jeff Edwards
“The trip was wonderful! … The staff was so well organized and everything exceeded my expectations. I have never seen so many birds flying! Cannot wait for our next adventure!”
– M. Holland
“…what a fabulous time I had. My trip to Sierra Brava was the best trip I have taken to Argentina in the last seven years! All the services you provided were the best and the food was fantastic. The shooting was better than I expected or could have imagined. The short drives to the shooting fields were a pleasure. All personnel were very professional. Thanks again for the outstanding time. I plan on returning.”
– D. Rufe
"I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the hunt we just had at Los Chanares. To say it was fabulous would be an understatement. I still can't believe the number of dove in your area. My friend Jeff and I shot 7375 shells and took nearly 6000 doves in three days. Incredible!!! Alex and your staff did a wonderful job. I hope to return with more friends soon."
- B. Bradley
"I've been to Argentina 16 or 17 times with 3 different outfitters stayed at 8 or9 different estancias. Los Chanares is the best. This includes staff ,lodge,food, birds and very important, short rides to the birds. I will be back with my boys. Hope the refferals generate business."
- C. Monsted
"We had a good hunt and was well taken care of and David was most generous. Birds were good and I was high shooter and got my 2000 bird a day golf shirt on both full days of shooting. See the old man still has it !!!!! 6083 birds in 19 hours at 87% All made it without injury or illness so it was successful. May we continue for many more years as good friends with good health and good hunting. "
"To Alex, Jessica, and all the incredible staff at Los Chanares: Thank you for an unbelievable experience. My friend Scott and I will be telling stories from our trip for a long long time. There is nowhere else in the world to see that kind of shooting! I hope there will be many more visits to Los Chanares in the future. Thanks again for running such a class operation."
- R. Kyger
"The trip was awesome and could not have been any better in my dreams. The food meets the standards of any 5 star rated restaurant and that's coming from a New Orleans set of taste buds. We look forward to another hunt in the future. Thanks for everything."
- M. Starring
"Both Christy and I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed out stay with you guys. It is not often that my wife is as excited about hunting trips as myself. Knowing that she enjoyed her trip as much as I did says a lot about the quality of your lodge. She has already said that I can not return with out her. We enjoyed the shooting, the meals, the lodge, and the staff, it was all top notch. We wish you the very best for the future and look forward to our next trip to Los Chanares."
- Shane & C. Allman
"I wanted to send you a note of appreciation for the absolutely wonderful trip we had to Los Chanares. I can't say enough good things about the accommodations. The food was first class, the room was very comfortable, the common rooms were charming and of course the shooting was over the top!
I simply can't imagine finding a place with more to offer. Two points really stood out for me as far as the hunting was concerned -- first, there were no long drives which most other places require and second, the roost shooting was unbelievable! The shooting spread sheets and the picture CD were a great bonus.
Again, many thanks for the trip of a lifetime! You run an amazing operation."
- G. Kauffmann
"We just wanted to write a note to say that we arrived home safely on Tuesday. We want to sincerely thank you for a most enjoyable vacation.
The estancia, the staff, the food and the general atmosphere were all marvelous!
As far as the shooting was concerned I have been shooting now for over 40 years and have never experienced anything better...and I have been to many places to shoot birds.
Thank you so much, all of you...and particularly you, David."
