Firearms´ transportation: Hunters should have all documentation required by their countries to export weapons temporarily. These should travel in rigid gun cases specially designed for this purpose with security locks or padlocks, so as to prevent weapons from being freely opened before being reported at the check-in counters. In order to bring firearms to Argentina, foreign hunters should provide to our company all the details of the hunters´ personal information and the firearms to be brought in. A member of Argentinawingshooting.com will be waiting at the International Airport with the paperwork already done. The Weapon National Register will issue the authorization, which will be checked by the air police at the moment of arrival to the country at Buenos Aires International Airport. Hunters must pay a gun introduction permit at customs according to its current value fixed by the Government.

Because the disposition of Argentina in the South American
continent it takes different latitudes so the climates depend on
the region visited by our guests. During the prime of the big game
season (Autumn) in Buenos Aires area the weather is mild with cool
nights and pleasant days with an average temperatures of 20° Celsius
and a high percentage of humidity in the air; in La Pampa province
the days use to be a little bite warmer and nights quite cooler
with an average temperature of 23° Celsius and low percentage of
humidity; during the same time the weather is colder in Patagonia
country, being quite cold during the day and very cold during the
night with an average temperature of 10° Celsius. It is not unusual
that the first snow storms arrive in those days.
During the winter which is the prime of the wing shooting the weather is colder all over the country but not as cold as Europe or North America.
depends on the region, hunting modality and the season chosen by
the hunter. Since Argentina doesn´t has extreme weather conditions
as North America or Europe we recommend to bring clothing for mild/cold
weather. During our fall we recommend light but strong shirts and
trousers, wool sweater, hat and a heavy jacket just in case. During
our duck hunting mornings in winter time weather use to be pretty
cold so it requires warm and waterproof clothing.
Camo gear is allowed in Argentina. For still hunts during the night (allowed in Argentina for several species as puma, wild boar and so on) heavier clothes are required because the nights use to be cold. Special underwear, gloves and a warm hat use to be useful. As for the foot wear we recommend comfortable water proof boots, suitable for long walks. We use to provide most of the equipment for duck hunting so we have available knee boots, hip boots and waders of all the normal sizes. Don’t forget your personal hygiene stuff. Regarding the hunting equipment the hunter is free to bring whatever considers useful for this hunt: binoculars, pocket knife, photo camera, flashlight and so on.
