Cristian Druetta runs Tuku Lodge in northern Argentina. The birds have become a problem.

If you’re a wing shooter, this is will fascinate you. Covid has eliminated air travel to the world-famous Tuku Lodge in the Salta province of Argentina. As a result, the bird population has exploded. Farmers are calling Cristian asking him how soon he can bring the hunters back; the birds (doves and pigeons mostly) eating 25 to 30% of the crops. Cristian tells us how he’s managed, how he’s kept his team working, and he begs us to come help his farmers when the travel restrictions are lifted.
