THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
RED STAG & HIGH VOLUME DOVE HUNTING

Untitled design (11)
THE HUNT

The morning hunt begins before daybreak and we return to the lodge at around 11:00 for lunch and later siesta. The afternoon hunt begins around 3:30-4:00 and we hunt until last shooting light. Most of the hunt will be spot and stalk. 4WD vehicles are used to move from one hunting area to the next. For hunters with limited mobility, we have a dozen grounds and elevated blinds over food plots and water holes. Shooting distances will be less than 200 meters with some shots as close as 30 meters. Bow hunters should be proficient at 30-40 meter since shots less than 30 meters are extremely difficult to achieve under spot and stalk.

THE TROPHY

Red Stag:

The stag you can expect to shoot free range will be a 7x7 minimum with an average score of 300-320" and the top scoring stags around 320-340". On free range stags, there is no limit on the score of the animal you shoot; but we do guarantee a minimum of a 7x7 stag, mature and well-developed trophy.

Dove Shooting:

High volume dove hunting has put Argentina on the map as the world’s ultimate bird shooting destination. The quantity of doves in the region where Rancho Cristobal operates is among the most impressive in Argentina and the world. Shooting over 2,000 rounds a day is not unusual! The High-Volume Dove Shooting season runs all year round!

 

THE LODGE

Big Game Area:

La Pampa Lodge has a newly built 8,000 square feet lodge offering world-class accommodations. The beautiful lodge is perched on a hilltop providing a commanding view of the lagoons and forests below.

The lodge has ten bedrooms all with private bathrooms and the possibility of single or double bed arrangements.
