Shooting

Argentina offers a great variety of big game species, native and exotic.  Argentina is best known for its red stag hunting.  The hunting areas are located in the La Pampa region.   Your hunting area will be selected based on the game that you seek.  This outfitter has access to well over 45,000 free range acres and over 10,000 preserve acres.  The guides and staff speak English.

The Roar:  If you are after Red Stag, we will want to put you into a date during the roar.  The roar is mid-March through April.

The environment is flat and bushy and the hunt itself is very challenging since the game uses the natural concealment of the thick forest for their protection.  Spot & stalk hunts as well as hunting from elevated box blinds are possible. For those who like the mountains, they can also offer red stag hunting in concessions of Patagonia Mountains where most hunts are done by horseback riding.  Ask us for details on this hunt.

Free Range Hunting:

With over 15 years of experience and fantastic free range properties, your dream of hunting free range Red Stag, Blackbuck, Water Buffalo, European Boars, Fallow, Mouflon, Feral Sheep and Puma can come true.

Located in the southern La Pampa, where stags were first introduced more than 100 years ago, this lodge is in a unique spot.  High protein grasses along with natural springs loaded with minerals create the magic mix that produces the best free rang Red Stag trophies in the country.  More than 10,000 acres of gentle rolling hills, woods and lagoons provide the perfect backdrop for the hunt of a lifetime.

The lodge is located near Bahia Blanca and that is the airport you will fly into from Buenos Aires.

Preserve Hunting:

Superior trophy quality has always been their goal.  During the last 6 years, they have taken over 35 top ten trophies for the SCI record book including:  #1 and #2 for Fallow deer, #2 for Red Stag, #1 Multi-Horn, #1 and #2 Feral Goats to name a few.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  

Links to the companies we recommend:

Travelex Insurance       Ripcord Insurance

While we do everything in our power to protect our clients from travel problems, we cannot prevent illness, natural disasters, wars, deaths, lodge closings and more; we live in uncertain times!  The only way to protect yourself and your investment is through travel insurance. Travel insurance can provide medical coverage, cancellation due to natural disaster, illness, death in the family, lodge closings and other unknowns; in this day and time, anything is possible.  Lodges count on you to protect your investment as they cannot refund your payments due to the nature of the product they offer.

Finally, travel insurance is time-sensitive and must be purchased within a certain number of days of your deposit to cover preexisting conditions, lodge closings and other various issues.  It is still available later but the benefits may be more limited.

Both companies offer evacuation insurance in addition to their travel insurance but Ripcord has more thorough coverage in this area.

The Ripcord membership and travel Insurance provides the highest levels of medical, security, evacuation and rescue services in the industry combined with travel insurance:

  • Remote rescue services from point of injury or illness
  • Medical evacuations to the member’s home hospital of choice
  • The best evacuation and rescue triggers that include rescues for medical conditions that will result in permanent injury in addition to just requiring hospitalization
  • Security extraction services for geopolitical events and natural disasters
  • Involuntary detention resolution services for members who are held against their will
  • Consulting services from special operations veterans, paramedics, nurses, and physicians
  • Travel insurance

Testimonials

Thank you for such a wonderful time. My son and I had tremendous hunts each and every day. The wait staff was excellent! Carlos and Patrick are such good hosts and saw to our every need. Thank you all again.

The Smiths – Minnesota

Thank you Patrick and all of the staff for a wonderful time! Our husbands hunted while us two wives stayed at the house each day. The staff ensured we had everything we needed while the hunters were gone. We enjoyed sitting and enjoying the beautiful area & walked the property. The staff was very kind and we enjoyed talking (or trying) with Sylvia. Patrick went out of his way to take us girls to the Palacia de Jose museum / house and taught us much about the history of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our time & blessed with the kindness and attention from everyone!  Matt will add the hunting was marvelous and successful!

The Landwebs – Missouri

I wanted to thank you and your team for a fantastic experience ….

My hunting partner and I did not know exactly what to expect on this trip. What we received was warm hospitality from everyone. Lichi and Gringe were super guides who left us wanting for nothing, not to mention they are fun to be around. The lodge offered a taste of the old days and of Argentina while providing the restful reminders of home. So for the two boys from Arkansas that grew up hunting, it is hard to express how amazing the dove, the duck and the Perdiz hunting was during our stay.

It was truly a world class wingshooting experience while mixing in and sharing your Argentine hospitality.

I look forward to a return trip!

Vollmer – Arkansas

Fantastic!!! I enjoyed not only the hunts but the extra attention that the staff paid to each detail. The food was excellent and enjoyed the local traditional dishes. We loved the freedom and options we had to hunt 3 different species with the Perdiz being the best. Patrick’s knowledge of local history and the conversations were great.

P.S. Lichi & Gringe made the hunts. Great guys with knowledge and humor
