Red Stag Hunting
This program takes place in our own hunting ground in the Province of La Pampa. This field has 15,000 hectares of century-old scrublands where the red stag lives among wild boars, pumas and different types of rams. In this area, animals wander wild and free in their natural environment.
No doubt this is one of the most exciting hunts you can do in Argentina, and it is quite common hunters want to harvest more than one red stag trophy.
The staking and hunt take place very early in the morning, before dawn. Strategically located we will listen the stags bellow. Once dawn breaks in, we approach to the animal and assess its conditions to determine if it is a worthy trophy. Close to noon we return to the lodge to enjoy a hearty meal, rest for only a while, and start the ritual once again in the afternoon.
5 Days – Red Stag Hunting
The hunt is performed at the Province of La Pampa, about 372 miles distant from Buenos Aires city. As one of the most arid and wild scenarios of Argentina, this is the ideal hunting area for these trophies. These animals made La Pampa their natural habitat at the beginning of the century when the first ones were brought in.
Our lodge is located near the hunting area. Our country-style house has 4 double rooms all with private bathrooms, a great dining area and a lounge room where hunters may relax and enjoy an after-dinner drink.
All services are catered to assure hunters take full advantage of their hunt and stay.

How to Get Here:
Argentina is a country which most major American and European airlines reach. There is a wide range of offers at low prices. Our international airport in Buenos Aires is Ministro Pistarini (Ezeiza). Once here, our staff will be expecting you at the airport to make your transfer to the domestic airport at 35 minutes drive from the international one. After one-hour flight you will arrive at Santa Rosa’s airport were you will be greeted and taken to our lodge that is at about one-hour drive.
You must take into account that flights to La Pampa are not operative on a daily basis, therefore we strongly recommend you to ask us about this, in order to make up your itinerary together. Another option is to arrive in Buenos Aires and then rent a plane to Santa Rosa (1hr. 20 min). This may be an interesting way of combining several hunting areas on a single trip.
There is another option which is by bus. Very comfortable seats and great on board service, similar to 1st class (airlines)
