A Bolivia pigeon hunt produces a lot of shooting.
By Leighann Bodenchuk, Editorial Assistant Editor's note: Each month, we draw a report at random from all subscriber hunt reports submitted the previous month. The lucky winner gets a free three-month subscription extension. In Jan., we'll draw a winner from among all subscriber reports submitted in 2017 for a full year's medical evacuation policy from Ripcord. To get in on the fun, submit your reports by fax, mail, or online at www.huntingreport.com/hunt_report.cfm. This month's winner is J. Kelly for his report on a pigeon shoot in Bolivia.
To our knowledge, Bolivia offers very limited-if any-big game hunting. We periodically hear rumors of hunts for "problem" jaguars, but they are not exportable, and hunters should be wary of these opportunities, since jaguar hunting is illegal throughout its range. Bird hunting is a different matter entirely.
Subscriber James Kelly and friends traveled to Bolivia in mid-July (see Report 10925
) for a pigeon shoot with Wingshooting Safaris de Bolivia Amazonica (www.pigeonbolivia.com
) and booked through Trek International Safaris (904-273-7800; www.treksafaris.com
