Testimonial by Peter Sportelli, June 2014
I am very sorry that it has taken me so long to send you guys a thank you for filling one of my life long dreams of hunting in Argentina.
Firstly, Justi, Wing Shooting Argentina, from the first email I sent you, your organization stood out from the rest. Very prompt and professional even though it was a long drawn out process, mind you, all due to me, you answered all my questions, and there were many. My questions were answered to my satisfaction and you put me at ease that I had chosen the right people to organize the hunting experience that I was looking for.
Your Team. We were fortunate to meet up with Oscar at BA airport, on the same flight to Goya. He immediately put us at ease that all was under control. On arriving at Goya we met up with Alex who drove us to La Pelada. Between the two of them they did an excellent job of tending not only to my needs but to my wife’s needs for the whole time we were there. I could not imagine that it could have gone more smoothly! Alex was by my side for anything that we asked for, during the hunts he did a fantastic job to make sure that all was as it should be and sometimes did more than he needed too. Please pass on a very special thank you to Alex for me, he was absolutely fantastic!
The Hunting. The hunting itself was sensational!! It was all that I had hoped for. The duck, dove and pigeon were great, Ernesto was a wonderful guide and did a great job to make these hunts as good as they could be. Plenty of birds in all hunts and bags were not a problem to get, great job! The stand out I have to say was the absolute treat to hunt Perdize with Tony and that beautiful dog Vamo ( I hope I got that right ) My first time hunting Perdize was not only exciting and rewarding but to do it with such a great team, made it for me a very memorable and special experience. The only problem is that now I have tasted it, the desire to do it again is bigger than before!!
The Lodge. La Pelada, what a wonderful place, just a spectacular place to have been. In all our travels this trip, Argentina and especially La Pelada was the stand out and the place we most want to return to. We could not have chosen a better place, partly for the location but most importantly for the people that make La Pelada what it is. Augusto is just one of the nicest guys you could meet, and what a great host, between Augusto and the famous gaucho Dario, aka. ” Ricky Martin ” please pass that on for me, they made our stay special, the food, the place, the hospitality and the best of all, the horse riding on that property with Augusto and Dario was all fantastic.
All in all, a fantastic job done by WSA and La Pelada to make our experience one to always remember.
