SUNDERLAND, VT –-(Ammoland.com)- The Orvis Company has announced Los Ombues Lodge of Argentina as the Orvis Endorsed International Lodge of the Year for 2012.
Los Ombues Lodge is perched on a hill overlooking 37,000 acres of prime bird hunting land in the rich floodplain of the Parana River, with another 120,000 neighboring acres available for shooting. 20 million eared doves roost in the native woodlands, an abundance of ducks inhabit the bountiful marshes and perdiz (partridge) abound in the rolling grasslands.
The only Orvis endorsed wing shooting lodge in Argentina, Los Ombues is the ultimate experience for the wing shooter. Owner Carlos Sanchez built Los Ombues for his passion for bird hunting and his unique understanding and appreciation for the sport is reflected in all aspects of the lodge experience. Dove and duck hunts are on the property, close to the lodge for convenience. All equipment is perfectly maintained; and the staff is expertly trained. After a day of memorable shooting, lodge visitors can reflect and enjoy gourmet dining and exquisite accommodations with the other attending wing shooters.
For over twenty years the Orvis Company has been recognizing excellence in sporting experiences through its Endorsed Lodges Outfitters and Guides program. Each endorsed operation has its own character, but all share the same high standards: great service, great fishing or wingshooting, and an experienced, professional staff. These standards of excellence are continually reviewed by the Orvis staff and evaluated by visiting guests in post-visit critiques sent directly to The Orvis Company. Orvis-Endorsed operations cater to every ability from beginners to experts.
