Overview of Argentina Luxury Red Stag Hunting - La Pampa
85,000 acres of free-range, prime habitat await you in Argentina. This property has an abundance of trophy red stag, blackbuck, water buffalo, wild boar, wild goats, wild rams, and multi-horned ram. Due to the cultivation of high-protein grasses and the natural, mineral-rich springs found on this land, their species have heavier antlers and horns than those found at other lodges in the La Pampa area. This property is incredibly diverse in its natural habitat. It ranges from grass-covered sand dunes to densebrush country similar to the Texas Hill Country which provides ideal habitat for each species.
If you are interested in high fence hunting as well, there is a 5,000-acre area that has larger red stag, axis, fallow, mouflon, wild goats, wild rams, and multi-horned rams. This is also an exciting and adventurous hunting experience as this is located in the brush country part of the ranch.
Your luxury lodge here is focused on providing you with an exclusive and authentic Argentinian experience. The living room, bar, and dining area are open and comfortable so your group can enjoy your after-hunt downtime together sharing stories and giving each other grief around the fire. The 5 spacious bedrooms overlook the property with beautiful views of the distant watering hole. This eco-lodge type space is luxurious enough to provide you with everything you need to be very well taken care of, but comfortable enough that you never feel like you can’t put your feet up and relax.
Our Experience at This Lodge
From the moment we pulled up to this luxury lodge, we knew it was something unique! There are few lodges in Argentina that can pair luxury accommodations with excellent hunting as this lodge does. The staff was incredibly welcoming and hospitable. They gladly helped us with all our needs with a smile on their face.
The property is incredibly diverse. We were thrilled with the number of wildlife we saw as we toured the free range and high fenced areas. Our guides were very knowledgable and shared their insights as we toured and hunted. They laughed with us as we shared hunting stories around the fireplace and while touring the property.
This beautiful ranch consists of roughly 85,000 acres of prime habitat with an abundance of free-range red stag, blackbuck, water buffalo, wild boar, wild goats, wild rams and multi-horned ram. Stag antlers are naturally heavier here than most parts of La Pampa because of the high protein grasses along with natural springs loaded with prime minerals that produce top quality trophies. The terrain is like parts of the Texas Hill Country with gentle rolling hills and brush cover changing into wide open grass covered sand dunes. Very diverse!
Stag hunters and their guide will be driven to an area in the brush country and dropped off to do some still hunting/ spot & stalk style hunting looking for a great stag. Blackbucks are found in the sand dunes primarily so you and your guide will be in the truck covering a lot of ground trying to spot a shooter. Once spotted hit the ground and make a stalk to get within shot range.
The hunt will be a combination of driving vehicles, spot & stalk, hiking, and box blinds over watering holes. They will do whatever is necessary for your success.
Free range: Realistic conservative free-range size expectations in this area are for a 6×6 or 7×7 stag in the 250-280 gross SCI range. They have harvested 8×8 and better with the largest scoring close to 340 gross SCI.
High Fence: There is a 5,000 acre high-fenced area which has larger red stag (325 up to over 500+), axis, fallow, mouflan, wild goats, wild rams and multi-horned ram.
As an extra bonus, if you bag your trophies early fill your remaining time with some great pigeon hunting or some fun fishing! Nothing could be better!

Travel Details & Location
Flight options are everchanging. Typically, your overnight flight will arrive into Ministro Pistarini International Airport, (or Ezeiza – EZE) in Buenos Aires in the morning. Clear Customs and transfer to the Jorge Newbery Domestic Airport (AEP) for your afternoon flight to Santa Rosa where the lodge will pick you up for the 1:30 drive to the ranch.
Your departure flight time from Santa Rosa back to BA will determine what time you depart the lodge. Your arrival time in BA will determine if you can continue on home or need to overnight in BA and continue home the next day.
Charter flights can be arranged and simplify the travel schedule. Ask for details.
The ranch offers several activities for observers/ non-hunters.
- Typically, this area has very little water but there are several lakes on the ranch next to sand dunes where they can organize some fishing and water activities such as sailing and kayaking.
- Horseback riding but you need to be an experienced rider to ride these horses.
- Game viewing.
- E bikes and mountain bikes
- All the above activities are on the ranch and are included in your hunt package.
- Wine tastings and massages can be arranged at the ranch for an additional fee.
- Sightseeing or shopping in Santa Rosa can be arranged with a guide from town for an additional fee. Santa Rosa is a small town with only a few blocks considered “downtown” so the shopping & touring options are minimal at best. If shopping is the goal, we suggest adding a day or two in Buenos Aires to the front or end of your trip.
Adding 1-3 days of high-volume dove shooting is another option to this trip! We have several options to consider so let’s discuss these fantastic options.
Internet & Communications
The lodge provides Wi-Fi for your convenience. There is no cell service so you need to be able to make Wi-Fi calls from your cell phone using WhatsApp or bring a Sat phone.
Please call us for the current pricing for 2023 and beyond.
