The red deer (Cervus elaphus) is one of the largest deer species. Red deer were introduced to Argentina in 1906 in the region of the Caldén (native tree) woodlands in the province of La Pampa.  In the 1920s red stag were introduced to the Andean foothills and into Chile around 1928.  The red stag are well dispersed throughout Argentina.  The male red deer is referred to as a stag and the females are referred to as hinds.  Red Deer were introduced specifically for hunting and are now prized as well because the meat from red deer is used as a local food source.  Red stag are the 4th largest deer (Cervid) behind moose, elk and Sambar deer.  Red stag generally run between 300 and 500 pounds depending on the food source, and they grow and shed antlers each year.

The Red Deer (Cervus elaphus)

March to July: Parque Diana Patagonia and El Carrizal, La Pampa

Red deer generally like forested areas over the wide open plains.  They are nocturnal and are often found grazing at night.  These deer are incredibly impressive and have the agility to jump fences and run well over 35 mph.  They are often hunted in the early morning hours or in the late evening hours before darkness settles in.  You can hunt these great deer by setting up near water holes.  The best time of year to hunt red stag is during March and April when the hinds come into heat in Argentina.  At this time, the stags and hinds begin the “brama” which is the Argentina word for the roar.  Red stag roar to the hinds and the powerful bellowed call brings all of the hinds closer.  This roar can be heard for miles and miles.  Hunting is done following spot and stalk methods, and average shots are between 100 and 200 yards.
