'True mixed bag combined with traditional Uruguayan lodge and exceptional hospitality'
''Tango Lodge gives Black River Outfitters and our clients the flexibility to hunt the same dove roosts, duck lagoons, and perdiz fields as La Paz, while providing each group their own private lodge''
Nacho Portela BRoutfitters.
Tango Lodge was founded by the Ruk's, an English family, who rebuilt and refurnished the lodge in 2014.
Tango is a typical Uruguayan estancia owned and managed by Florencia Ruk who has many years of decoration experience and lodge management.
Tango Lodge offers three different shooting options from the same lodge along with Dorado fishing available upon request. All options are 10-45 minutes from the estancia.
Each morning you will hunt wild perdiz in short grass pastures over pointing English setters / Brittany spaniels / German braco, or ducks in lagoons and ponds nearby. Every day you will return to the lodge for lunch or stay for BBQ in the field to enjoy the traditional 'asado'.
Afternoons include a high volume dove shoot at a vast roost 35 minutes from the estancia or hunting on the property itself.
- Perdiz - May 01 - July 31
- Ducks - May 01 - September 15
- Dove - Year round
- Dorado fishing - Year round
Uruguay's Tango Lodge is not your average wing shooting estancia. Tango is one of South America's few TRUE 3-feather mixed-bag hunting destinations and golden dorado fishing.
Tango 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? Tango 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. Tango 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 Tango, 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. Tango 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 Tango 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.
The lodge's unique exterior is highlighted by a picturesque Uruguayan rural view.
