Hunting

Junin Lodge

The Red Stag hunting season occurs during the rut—known in Argentina as the brama. It is the rich pastures that lure the game, in particular the red stag that come here to feed. Aside from the red stag, the area is home to a wide variety of animals such as Guanacos (type of Llama), Choique (ostrich), Wild Boar, Pumas, Foxes and more.   This vast estancia is entirely un-fenced and hunters typically encounter several herds of deer throughout the day. A professional guide, with an intimate knowledge of the terrain will accompany pairs of hunters. The hunters will move to their chosen hunting grounds by a combination of trucks and horses and then progress on foot for the hunt. There are accommodations for up to 6 (in 3 double rooms), with 2 being non-hunters. There is a nice dining room, sitting room, bar, and gun cleaning area, also Satellite telephone and TV are available.                                                                                       You will dine on local Argentine Cuisine accompanied by fine wines, traditional asados (barbeques) and the finishing touch -delicious deserts.

Tupungato Lodge

This exclusive preserve spans 10,000 acres and sits on the upper levels of a huge estate. The estancia has been breeding and managing red stag herds for the last 20 years. By inter breeding local stock with some of the very best bloodlines from Europe and New Zealand, they have today some of the biggest and healthiest herds in the country. Many hunting grounds are walking distance from the lodge and the more distant areas are easily reached on horseback, ATVs or by 4×4. The fertile valleys of the Mendoza Andean foothills provide perfect habitat for deer and they have developed impressive racks, with some specimens naturally reaching the 450 SCI + class. Elsewhere, deer of this size are only found in breeding ranches in New Zealand and Europe.
