Species and Hunting Methods

Red Stag (Cervus elaphus)
This species was introduced from Europe in the early 20th century and the population grew rapidly and spread all over the province. Of the species we offer, it is the most coveted.
The best time for stag hunting is during the rut season, when the males fight for control of the females. The rut lasts for about 15 days, usually starting in mid March, but this varies somewhat according to climate conditions.

The hunter has 2 outings per day, at sunup and sundown, with his guide, to follow stags that can be heard in the forest. This type of hunt requires long walks and patience.
For a successful hunt we suggest a minimum stay of 5 days.

Wild boar (Sus scrofa)
This species was also introduced from Europe and adapted very well to its new habitat on the plains of the pampas.

The hunt is usually at night from blinds placed near watering holes or feeding places, around the time of full moon.
Wild boar hunting is allowed year round. We recommend a minimum stay of 3 nights.

Puma (Puma concolor)

This native species is the most difficult to hunt. Its versatility has enabled it to increase its population despite the use of illegal hunting methods.
The puma is a territorial, solitary animal whose presence varies according to the availability of food. It is seen more often during the months when calves are born.
Besides man, it has no natural predators.

NOTE: puma hunting has been temporarily banned in the province of La Pampa until further notice.
