RED STAG IN PATAGONIA

Red Stag hunting in Patagonia

Our outfitters hunting lodge is located within a 100,000-acre family owned estancia in the high desert foothills of the Andes. Situated in the province of Neuquen, approximately 40 miles southeast of San Martin de los Andes, the ranch is a 2hr drive from Bariloche and San Martin airports.

The surrounding landscape includes lush green valleys irrigated by small creeks, set against a backdrop of high peaks. It is these rich pastures that concentrate the game, in particular the red stag that come here to feed. Aside from the red stag, the area is inhabited by a wide variety of animals such as Guanacos (a type of Llama), Choique (ostrich), Wild Boar, Pumas, Foxes and much more.

The Red Stag hunting season occurs during the rut—known in Argentina as the brama. The vast estancia is entirely un-fenced and hunters typically encounter several herds of deer throughout the day. Pairs of hunters are accompanied by one of our guides, with an intimate knowledge of the terrain. Guests will move to the chosen hunting grounds by a combination of trucks and horses and then progress on foot for the hunt.

Hunters will stay in a newly refurbished house, close to the main estancia. With wood stoves and a cozy living room. This simple but comfortable lodge is the perfect place to unwind after a day’s hunting.

THE HUNT

  1. Morning hunts depart the lodge well before dawn.
  2. Drives vary depending on the chosen hunting area. Usually between 10 to 45 minutes away.

  5. Aside from a trophy stag, there are opportunities to hunt Cullable Deer, Wild Boar, and Puma (Mountain Lion).
