Red Stag HuntingExperience a Red Stag hunt on 8,000 private hunting acres in Argentina!
Argentina Red Stag Hunting
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 the Elk, are found in the rugged mountains of Northern Patagonia. The estancia is situated on 8,000 private hunting acres, surrounded by National Park Lands. The Red Stag roar begins in mid-March and runs through April. This is a true fair chase hunt with no trophy fees. 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!
The Red Stag Hunt in Argentina
Success rates in 2015 – 2017 were about 90%. We hunt twice a day, driving or riding horses or walking from the lodge to the different spots from where we stalk. This is a true stalk hunt 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 for walking. Our ranch, Escualita, is located on a peninsula surrounded by a lake in the most beautiful area of Patagonia. We have over 8,000 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 a lot of 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 peninsula 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. Each hunter has a guide and after judging the trophy, the guide will decide if it is a quality 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 opportunities in the area as well.

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 dining 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.
After a long day of trophy stag hunting, return to the spacious estanicia and enjoy the mountains of Patagonia and the breathtaking view of a crystal blue lake. Evenings often include a chorus of roaring red stag.
THE TENT CAMP
The Tent Camp is situated in a beautiful valley with a small trout stream flowing through. The hunting is similar to the Stag hunting near the estancia but the terrain is slightly more difficult to traverse. The camp is very comfortable and you can do some Patagonia trout fishing right out of your tent when you are not hunting. The camp has a shower house with running water.
