For the third year in a row, we have just returned from our affiliate lodge in Argentina after a productive shooting adventure which included doves, pigeons, ducks, and perdiz.
Seven of our clients/friends from as far away as Alaska spent two days in Buenos Aires experiencing the Argentine food/culture and then four days shooting at our luxury lodge. On the last day with her last shell, Kim Atkins of Chattanooga, Tennessee swung on the first of three ducks crossing in front of her blind and executed a rare triple!
Our shooting packages for August 2018 will be posted on our website shortly.
Reserve your slot early and join the Cole staff in Argentina next year. We take care of all the details and travel with you every step of the way!
Call Cole North or South for details!
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. We wish everyone good health, fun in the sun and a safe and wonderful summer shooting season!!

Every last thing was top notch. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and cozy-- the lodge beautiful, the staff friendly and attentive, the meals very traditional and authentic Argentinian cuisine. I am told the wine was fabulous:-) We had the chance to ride horseback, kayak the stream, and hunt doves/ ducks and perdiz in a variety of settings. The guides were terrific, especially dealing with a lady brand new to hunting. We were able to visit a variety of spots in an area loaded with mixed bag opportunities to hunt duck, doves and perdiz. I've never known (and couldn't have fathomed) the peace and beauty of sitting in a duck blind before dawn, watching the sun rise as the ducks begin their daily flight. Just spectacular!

With Father's Day just around the corner we thought it would be fun to hear about the ways hunting and sport shooting have brought our customers' families closer together. We have had the pleasure of working with Steve and Andy Doak for many years now and we're grateful to them for sharing their story with us...

Why is gun fit important? The most successful shooters are so comfortable handling their gun that it is as if it is an extension of their body. All shooters should strive for this! This level of comfort is achieved through a combination of good instruction, practice, experience, consistency and of course, gun fit. A consistent gun mount is critical for a gun fitter to achieve accurate dimensions. This is one challenge when trying to work with new shooters...View full article →
