Argentina is the eighth-largest country in the world. While it’s well known for fine wines, soccer, the tango, and Eva Peron, over the last decade, the country has emerged as the premier reverse season fly-fishing & hunting destination—because winter in the U.S. means the kickoff to summer in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s easy to reach Buenos Aires via overnight flights, and visitors to this fascinating nation rave about the hospitality, warmth, and sense of cultural and family pride shared by the Argentine people.
Since red deer were introduced into Argentina more than a hundred years ago, they have flourished throughout many ranges in the country. Argentina has some of the world’s best free-range red stag hunting in the northwestern regions of Patagonia. The remoteness, endless land, huge ranches, friendly peolple and abundance of wild game, puts the country as unique hunting destination.
However, not all stag hunts are created equal. It is important to choose the right outfitter.
Red Stag Patagonia is brought to you by the team at David Denies Bird Hunting and their partner Sebastian F. Casado. For over 30 years David Denies has operated the finest bird hunting lodges in South America and has deservedly built a reputation for providing world-class sport supported by impeccable service and lodging. Red Stag Patagonia mirrors the commitment to quality and integrity.
The hunting season begins March 1st and ends in mid-June, with the optimal period for roaring red stags lasting through the month of March and April. With so much riding on a hunt, you need to consider your options carefully–and work with a guide and outfitter that cares as much about your success as you do.
At each lodge, our commitment is the same. We work tirelessly before, during, and after the season to offer our guests an authentic and rewarding experience. We pay attention to the smallest details—from being on time every time to the quality of our wines, to the type of vehicles we choose. Our Argentine big game lodges host only a limited number of guests each week, again ensuring great service and plenty of “elbow room” in the lodge and on the field.
