First off, I think everyone in our group had a great time at Pica Zuro, we all really enjoyed all aspects of a spectacular trip.  The physical accommodations were great, the old building has great charm and is perfect for a high quality hunting lodge.  The individual rooms were first class, everything we needed.   The service was great.  María at the Lodge and Facundo took care of our every need.  The food was wonderful, both in quality and quantity, María was there to make sure that if we needed anything it was provided.  Facundo handled our transportation and made sure we knew the plan for each day of our hunt.  He was involved with all of us (as María was also) and as a result we not only enjoyed their company but each member of our group knew the program, the plan for the next event and always felt fully informed.  No one to my knowledge needed anything that was not provided or answered.     The food at the hunts was really great, hard to beat good Argentine beef and pork cooked over wood fires in the field, topped off with a short nap in a hammock.  Tough life!   Our field assistants were really helpful, loading the guns and making sure we had water and other things to drink.  Their very positive and professional attitude resulted in not only having someone there that was meeting our needs but also someone that we enjoyed being with and talking with.     The whole trip was really a first class experience; this was my second trip to Argentina for shooting, but I lived in Bolivia for 2 years and traveled to Argentina many times and did a lot of shooting in Bolivia.  So, I had some idea of what to expect on a first class hunt and those expectations were met or exceeded.  I don’t know what you could have done to make the trip any better.     One key issue on shooting trips is guns.  The lack of sufficient quality or quantity of guns can ruin a trip of this kind.  Fortunately you had good shotguns, a good variety and were able to make changes or substitutions not only for mechanical problems that are to be expected with this kind of high volume shooting, but also to provide a variety when we wanted to just shoot something different.     Thanks to all your staff for making our hunt a really enjoyable experience.  PS, the photo book we had the opportunity to purchase at the end ( I think all of our group made the purchase) was a special treat for us to take home and show our family and friends, as well as just relive the great adventures.

Getting There

Pica Zuro Lodge is located in the province of Córdoba, in Central Argentina, 60 miles (100 km) North of the Córdoba City International Airport. The lodge is about an hour and fifteen minute drive from the airport.
Shooting Itinerary

The daily hunting program generally starts at 8 a.m., with a hearty breakfast and a short drive to the shoot.

In the field you will be assigned a pick-up boy, who provides you with cartridges and refreshments and directs you to your hide. Once you are placed and ready, hunting begins, and either one or two full-time bird boys will assist you. Additionally, our head guide will also be available to assist or provide tips on your shooting if desired.

Depending on the time of the year, you will hunt till noon, when you’ll be treated to an incredible Asado-style lunch, served in the shade of a comfortable safari tent, featuring Argentina’s wonderful beef and superb wines. Many hunters like to enjoy a nap after lunch, with afternoon hunting sessions beginning at around 2 or 2:30, and continuing until late in the day. There is no required time to stop, good sense and tired shooters dictate when the day is through. After hunting there is time for showers and cocktails at the lodge before dinner
