Uruguay’s Cangue Lodge is not your average wing shooting estancia. Cangue is one
of South America’s few TRUE 3-feather mixed-bag hunting destinations and golden
Cangue offers incredible duck, dove and perdiz hunting...all from one beautiful lodge.
Hunters also have the option of adding Golden Dorado fishing if desired.
How is it all possible? Cangue is ideally situated in the midst of over 100,000 acres of
agriculture fields, sorghum fields, soybean fields, cattle pastures, ponds and
riverfront…making it a virtual sportsman’s paradise with game so abundant you have
to see to believe.
Duck Hunting (May 01 – Sept 15)
The duck hunting in Uruguay has always been good, particularly in the upper western
part of the country. But minimal local and commercial hunting over the years has
limited the hunting pressure. The limited pressure, coupled with the area’s huge food
supply and numerous ponds, make for ideal duck hunting conditions. From late fall
through the winter, this part of Uruguay is home to a variety of exotic duck species
including the Rosy-Billed Pochard, White-Faced Whistling Duck, Brazilian Teal, Brown
Pintail, Speckled Teal, Ringed Teal, Southern Widgeon, Cinnamon Teal and Silver Teal.
Cangue guides work hard to ensure Uruguay duck hunting at its best.
Dove Hunting (Year-Round)
The dove hunting in Uruguay is rivaled only by the hottest dove hunting destinations in
Argentina. At Cangue, not only is the dove hunting excellent year round, but is a
thrilling component of the mixed-bag program that also includes duck, perdiz, and
pigeon. The shooting occurs in the area’s rolling green hills and farmlands, often just
minutes away from the lodge. In this part of Uruguay, dove hunting helps to preserve
valuable crops and farmers’ livelihoods; for this reason there is no dove hunting
season and no bag limit! Shoulders willing, guests can expect to shoot upwards of 80
boxes per day!
Perdiz Hunting (May 01 – July 31)
There is nothing like the thrill of hunting perdiz behind well-trained dogs. In Uruguay
perdiz hunting is an obsession and it shows. Cangue employs some of the best dog
handlers in all of Uruguay – locals that have been training dogs and hunting perdiz their
entire lives. This vast experience pays off in the field, with Cangue offering some of
Uruguay’s most consistent perdiz hunting. In addition to the great guides, the area’s
perfect habitat and abundant food make for thriving perdiz populations.
Cangue Lodge is located in the northwest region of Uruguay in the state of Paysandú near the river town of Paysandú. The lodge is
approximately 225 miles from Montevideo, the capital of this small country. Most commonly, shooters traveling on international flights
to Montevideo will be met by a Cangue Lodge representative who will assist with gun clearance, if necessary, and who will transport
the group to Cangue Lodge. The drive is approximately 4 hours through scenic rural Uruguay via paved highway.
Other options which may be considered are:
Privet Charter from Montevideo: guests arriving into Montevideo may charter to the Paysandu airport (40-minute flight), approximately 30 minutes from the lodge.
