Red Stag Hunting in Argentina
Among the many fair chase hunts in Argentina, Red Stag Hunting in Patagonia, is by far the most exciting hunting experience. Due to the challenge of the hunt and the beauty of your surroundings this hunting experience is one of the world's best.
Argentina Red Stag, comparable to elk and sometimes referred to as red deer, are found in the rugged mountains of northern Patagonia. The Red Stag roar begins in mid March and runs through April. Ours is a true fair chase hunt. Due to the concentration of animals during the rut, the success rate is close to 100%. This, however, doesn’t mean that you don’t have to work to get your trophy!
When your Argentina red stag hunt is over we will return to our spacious lestanicia or tent camp situated the mountains of Patagonia. Relax and enjoy the breathtaking view of a crystal blue lake.
The Red Stag Hunting Lodge
The Red Stag Hunting Lodge, La Escuelita, is a rustic estancia situated on a mountainside north of Bariloche. Very comfortable with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room with a big fireplace and dinning room.
The landscape in this area is so magnificent that Walt Disney and his crew spent two months taking photos and sketches for the backdrop of what later was used in the movie Bambi.
The Tent Hunting Camp
The Tent camp is South of Bariloche and is very luxurious, as tent camps go. Situated in a mountain valley with a small trout stream flowing through camp, this it an idyllic location. You can do some Patagonia Trout fishing right outside your tent!
The hunting camp has a shower house and bathroom facility with running hot water.
The hunting at the tent camp is slightly more exertive that at La Escuelita but you will be hunting on horse back in a similar fashion. Due to the terrain, you may have to cover some ground & elevation to get to the Red Stag at times.
Red Stag Hunting
Success rates in 2014 & 2015 were 100%
We hunt twice a day, driving, riding horses or walking from the lodge to the different spots from where we stalk. This is real stalk hunting and the terrain is appropriate to spot the animals from far away and try to get close. Some sections of the property are rough and require adequate stamina while others are easy walking.
Our ranch, Baguales, is located on a peninsula surrounded by a lake in the most beautiful area of the Patagonia. We have over 8000 acres of woods, mountains and small valleys to hunt exclusively.
During the Red Stag roar the big bulls concentrate in the valley and there is much roaring coming from the bull red stags. As the roar winds down in mid April the Red Stag bulls move higher up. The north side of the penisula is bathed in sun and the big bull stags congregate close to the lodge.
The hunter must be ready to take shots from 50 to 200 yards. Every hunter has a guide. After judging the trophy, the guide will tell if it is a shootable Trophy Argentina Red Stag. It is important to know that we don’t shoot young animals, regardless of the size of the Red Stag.
After taking your trophy Argentina Red Stag you can continue Red Stag hunting and take a second or hunt for Argentina wild boar. There are many large males in the area and the hunt is very exciting. There are first class fishing oportunities in the area as well.
