Argentina Red Stag Hunting Patagonia
This Patagonia hunting area of Argentina is considered the finest free range Red Stag hunting in the world! This beautiful 60,000 acre mountain ranch is a mix of free range and preserve properties. Lovely accommodations and an excellent chef complete your stay.
The rolling hills and scenic terrain are surrounded and crafted by the rivers and streams that flow through the property. Breathtaking views make this area the perfect habitat for the species offered including the Red Stag, Fallow Deer, Axis Deer, Blackbuck Antelope, Russian Boar, Pere David’s Deer, European Mouflon, Black Jacob’s Ram, Patagonian Dall, Patagonian Ram, Multi-horned Sheep, Wild Goat, and Balearean Boc.
Hunters will find this country vast and open. This makes it easy to spot game from high vantage points. The captivating surroundings and the wilderness of the country provide a once-in-a-lifetime hunting experience, even for the most experienced and ambitious hunters.
As a result of over 20 years of hard work and game management, hunters can also find numerous trophy Red Stag. The properties’ hills and vegetation have provided an area where Red Stag have flourished and increased in both size and number.
Hunters who prefer to use a bow are welcome. Many trophy animals have been taken with a bow & arrow on this property because of the number animals on the property, low hunting pressure, and cover.
Hunts begin each day by driving in 4WD trucks through the property. After an animal is spotted, the stalk takes place on foot. Hunts on horseback are also available. (Trucks will not be used, the hunter and party will be on horses until it is time to stalk the animal.)
There are many activities available for those who prefer not to hunt! Each day, guests may choose to join the hunt or enjoy the other activities such as horseback riding, hiking, shopping, spa and more.

In general hunts can be conducted on horseback or from 4WD vehicles, depending on the hunter’s preference, horsemanship and physical ability. The final approach is done on foot. Hunters can expect to walk 5-7 miles per day on relatively flat or hilly terrain.
Bow hunters will be hunting spot & stalk style as well as natural ground blinds on trails and over feeding areas. Bow hunters have an 80% chance at a shot of 40 yards or less.
The season for hunting is March until June. The roar for Red Stag is Mid March through April.

Observers will be able to relax and enjoy the beautiful, go horseback riding, hiking and look around the greenhouse where the lodge grows their fresh vegetables. You can also take a cab for a 1 ½ hour scenic drive into town for shopping, spa and sightseeing. The lodge can arrange a tour guide for an hourly rate for your convenience. Trips to & from town are only allowed at 6:00 A.M., during the middle of the day and after dark in the evening so as not to effect the hunting since the road goes thru the middle of the ranch.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: REQUIRED!
Links to the companies we recommend:
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.
