The 50 square mile radius (129 km2) around the shooting area form one of the most amazing duck shooting reserves. On the northern area of the lodge, about 60 miles away, there are a couple of great roosting areas for doves, and the fields covered with natural grass have a great population of Perdiz. Our location is annually inhabited by over fifteen million duck during the season. People and outfitters talk about a population of twenty million dove. Our Company counts on thirty different shooting fields throughout the entire region.
The Duck Program starts at 6:00 am with a hearty breakfast. Around 6:45 am we take a short boat ride to the shooting field. Schedules vary depending on the time of the year. The boat ride is between twenty to forty minutes. After the morning shoot, we go back to the lodge for lunch and a siesta. In the afternoon, we depart at around 3:30 pm for the evening duck shoot.

Hunting and target shooting are among the safest of all sports. This short note is intended to make them even safer by emphasizing the basics of safe gun handling, storage, and by reminding you that you are the key to firearms safety.
Always Keep The Muzzle Pointed In A Safe Direction. Never point your gun at anything you do not intend to shoot. This is particularly important when loading or unloading a firearm. In the event of an accidental discharge, no injury can occur as long as the muzzle is pointing in a safe direction.
Firearms Should Be Unloaded When Not Actually In Use. Unload your gun as soon as you are finished. A loaded gun has no place in or near a car, truck, or building. Unload your gun immediately when you have finished shooting.
Do Not Rely On Your Guns Safety. The safety on any gun is a mechanical device, which, like any such device, can become inoperable at the worst possible time. You should never handle a gun carelessly and assume that the gun won\'t fire just because the safety is on.
Be Sure Of Your Target And What\'s Beyond It. Don\'t shoot unless you know exactly what your shot is going to strike. Be sure that your bullet will not injure anyone or anything beyond your target. Firing at a movement or a noise without being absolutely certain of what you are shooting at constitutes disregard for the safety of others.
Use Correct Ammunition. Using improper or incorrect ammunition can destroy a gun and cause serious personal injury. It only takes one cartridge of improper caliber or gauge to wreck your gun, and only a second to check each one as you load it. Be absolutely certain that the ammunition you are using matches the specifications that are contained within the gun\'s instruction manual and the manufacturer\'s markings on the firearm. Be aware not to use smaller ammunition in the gun you are using, this could cause a major accident.
If Your Gun Fails To Fire When The Trigger Is Pulled, Handle With Care! Occasionally, a cartridge may not fire when the trigger is pulled. If this occurs, keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Keep your face away from the breech. Then, carefully open the action, unload the firearm and dispose of the cartridge in a safe way.
Always Wear Eye And Ear Protection When Shooting. All shooters should wear protective shooting glasses and some form of hearing protection while shooting. Exposure to shooting noise can damage hearing. Adequate vision protection is essential. Shooting glasses guard against twigs, falling shot, clay target chips, and the rare ruptured case of firearm malfunction.
Be Sure The Barrel Is Clear Of Obstructions Before Shooting. Before you load your firearm, open the action and be certain that no ammunition is in the chamber or magazine. Be sure the barrel is clear of any obstruction. Even a small bit of mud, snow, excess lubricating oil, or grease in the bore can cause dangerously increased pressures. This can cause the barrel to bulge or even burst on firing, which can cause injury to the shooter and bystanders.
Don\'t Alter Or Modify Your Gun, And Have Guns Serviced Regularly. Firearms are complicated mechanisms that are designed by experts to function properly in their original condition. Any alteration or change made to a firearm after manufacture can make the gun dangerous and will usually void any factory warranties.
Learn The Mechanical And Handling Characteristics Of The Firearm You Are Using. Not all firearms are the same. The method of carrying and handling firearms varies in accordance with the mechanical characteristics of each gun. Since guns can be so different, never handle any firearm without first having thoroughly familiarized yourself with the particular type of firearm you are using, the safe gun handling rules for loading, unloading, carrying and handling that firearm, and the rules of safe gun handling in general.
