The Hunting:

March 1-July 30 is the prime hunting time; the rut is approximately March 15-May 15, when the mountains and canyons echo from the clashing “roars” of the Red Stag. However, the hunt can become even more complex after the rut when the stag skatter over the estancia’s rugged terrain. It will challenge the best hunter and all their accumulated knowledge to track and take one of these giant beauties.Rincon de Luna guides know well each mesa, valley and ancient Indian wall, wandering through the estancia property, and deliver professional one-on-one service to visiting hunters. Three-day stalks for each species are suggested with a minimum hunt of four days for any single species. Four-wheel vehicles, ATVs, or horseback are the means of pursuing game, but based on the terrain being hunted and the guests’ preference and their comfort level some stalking on foot may be done. Whichever you choose, the choice of Rincon de Luna will be an outstanding one, and one that will stand with the great adventures in your life.
