FREE RANGE RED STAG HUNTING
PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA

THE HUNT

The Patagonia region of Argentina is well known for being home to the largest “free range” red stags in the world. South American Adventure Safaris hunting ranches are located in the heart of the very best red stag hunting areas.  The terrain is filled with mountains and forest canyons filled with thick forest.  This area of Patagonia is very beautiful and it makes for a perfect backdrop for a tremendous hunt.

Our ranch Parque Diana and the neighboring area encompass over 25,000 acres of private land for free range hunting. The trophy quality in this area is as good as it gets. Hunters can expect to harvest stags trophies in the 300-320 SCI class. Patagonia stags are known for having great mass with dark color horns and light ivory tips.  We use four wheel vehicles to get into our hunting spots and then the hunting is a combination of spot and stalk though accessible terrain.

The high population of hinds in the area attracts many red stags from miles around, resulting in a tremendous roar during the red stag rut. Red stag hunting in the rut of the Patagonia mountains is a must for the international hunter and the experience is one that will fill your memories and dreams for years to come.  The best time to plan your free range red stag hunt is during the rutting season from mid-March through mid-April.  Our clients experience 100% success year after year during the roar.  If you are interested we also provide some fine trout fishing from the same lodge with short drives and scenic rivers filled with hard fighting trout.

THE TROPHY

You can expect a mature and well-developed trophy with a minimum of 12 points (6 x 6 ). Average score of our free range stags is 300-320 “with the top scoring stags reaching 340-350”. On this hunt there is no extra charge based on score; we will look for the best possible trophy for you to harvest. See pictures below for reference.
