Argentina Red Stag Hunt #37

Argentina Red Stag Hunt #37

Argentina-37-Big-Stag-Pic-2-624x416-150x150  We have worked with this very fine outfitter for 12 years; Butch has hunted personally with him; and we have had our clients hunting with him- all with good results and happy smiles!! This operation prides itself on being personable; on giving superb service and on keeping clients happy. Success is normally 100% on Red Stag and most other species. They took what was Argentina’s biggest stag – over 500 SCI!! They hunt a variety of different properties in several areas from La Pampa to areas near Buenos Aires and all the way to stag in Patagonia. (If you want to consider Patagonia- ask for the separate write-up.)

RED STAG HUNTING PROGRAM IN LA PAMPA
This red stag program (bush hunting) takes place in the province of La Pampa, 450 miles from Buenos Aires city. The environment is flat and brushy, very similar to South Texas. Most of the hunts are conducted in Calden (native tree of La Pampa) forests which are the favorite area of the roaring stags but the area also features sand dunes, thick bush, salt lakes and grasslands.

LODGING
He has a very nice and new Lodge with separate new accommodations for hunters. All of it is very clean, and quite upscale. It has log type structures with nice rockwork stairs and other amenities. It is situated on the hunting ranch; and it is not unusual to see huge stags and fallow deer, and other animals, right from the buildings! There are five exclusive bungalows with eight luxurious double rooms with bathroom in suite plus a special suite. Satellite TV, mini bar, phone, Internet access by WiFi, Jacuzzi and so on is all there. The main lodge is the hub of the social activities of the ranch; it has a living room with a fire place, play room with pool table, bar, dinning room, deck with a valley view and a watch tower to video or glass game from. They also have an air strip in the ranch suitable for use by their own aircraft (Piper Navajo and Cherokee Six).Food is very good; service is top notch, and the attitude is as fine as it can be. And more land was added in 2010:
“ Butch: We bought the next door’s ranch. Besides that we have our new ranch in West La Pampa and more concessions in the same area which means over 70,000 acres available for our clients.  Best regards.”

FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT
The ranch has an international chef responsible for preparing their gourmet cuisine. Dine on a great variety of exquisite meals based in game meat (deer, wild boar and so on) and the world famous Argentinean beef. The guests will also enjoy the traditional Argentinean dishes, specially the “asado” (barbecue)! Normally you will sample a variety of the famous Argentine Wines, all of which we have greatly enjoyed! These are wonderful and caring people we like a bunch. Non hunters can enjoy horseback riding; touring; local shopping and more- or just kick back and enjoy the game and the facilities. You set the pace!

THE HUNTING
This outfit has many different stag areas for you to hunt. They have unfenced free range hunting areas with terrain that is easy. Low elevations, high grass, small trees and brush. Spot and stalk is the method. Or you can hunt the home ranch, which is fenced, and it has about 4400 acres. Terrain is similar, with a few big hills. As stated above they added even more lands in 2009 and 2010, so at present they hunt over 70,000 acres. They will use all areas to help insure you take your animal! In terms of physical effort, we rate these as easy hunts, perhaps averaging 3 on a scale of 10.

It is possible to take Medal class Stags on the free roaming hunt. However if you want giant gold or super gold, then you will hunt the high fence area. If you want any of the more exotic game such as fallow; axis; blackbuck; any of the sheep such as mouflon or 4 horn sheep or feral sheep, then the hunting is normally high fence. Some species may require a move such as water buffalo; horseback hog hunts with gun or spear; special blackbuck ranch hunts; and more. The list is extensive and this outfitters contacts reach all across Argentina and even into Patagonia, where we personally did horseback stag hunting and some trout fishing with him. Simply let one of our agents at Hunt Nation know your wishes- we can make it happen!

This outfit also has the ability to offer excellent high volume doves! So we can make many different packages; virtually every specie found in Argentina can be arranged for—Just Ask! And if you hanker for giant Argentina Super Gold Stags- this is the place. Even if you do not hunt them, you are likely to see them at the main Lodge – a treat in itself! Many high book animals in SCI have been taken here- many – INCLUDING what was the NEW 500 PLUS STAG- BIGGEST EVER TAKEN IN South America!!

HUNTING SEASONS: In terms of best dates, we like March thru May for stag (seasons are reversed- our September is their March). Stags, like their elk cousins, are roaring in early fall (mid- March thru April). You can hunt later, but these are prime times. Some of the animals are better hunted at other times, but the typical hunt for stag; blackbuck; perhaps sheep and water buffalo, can all be done in that time frame.
