Argentina Free-range Red Stag Hunting

Or Call: 1-800-346-8747

Description

Free-range red stag are a hidden gem in the La Pampa region of Argentina. This outfitter owns a total of 57,000 acres including 51,000 acres free-range, allowing the sportsperson to hunt for several different species including: red stag, boar, blackbuck, water buffalo, axis deer, mouflon, and fallow deer (to name a few). You may also do a little dove shooting from the same location if time permits for a small fee.

The quality of the red stag trophy is measured by the quantity of the points, length and thickness of the antlers and symmetry. Its fur is dun reddish in summer and more grayish in winter. They live in the protection of the scrub-lands or woods where he finds his best shelter. He has night habits, he has a great agility and speed, and he likes visiting watering holes to roll in the water or mud. Most of the year, the stags live separately from the hinds, but in March and April, when the hinds are in heat in the Southern Hemisphere, the stags and hinds get back together and then the "brama" happens, as it is called in Argentina, a term equivalent to "roaring". The chase of this animal is done in the early hours of the morning or at dusk. The hunter looks for a strategic spot where he can hear the roar of the stags.

The black antelope hunting is done in vast plains during the day, and the difficulty is not finding the herd, which is generally easily identified, but approaching within shooting range, making this a very exciting hunt.

The area is unparalleled in natural beauty and is composed of primarily forested land with small hills and lakes. The luxury lodge offers a clubhouse with panoramic view and includes dining room, bar and Internet access. The chef will prepare gourmet dinners based on Argentina prime beef, game meats, and chicken.

This outfitter's camps, equipment, and staff are all first-class with everyone doing their very best to see that you have a successful and memorable hunt. The best dates book up early, so don't delay in calling.
