This 62,000 acre ranch is a Patagonian icon, located in the Junin de los Andes area that stretches from the high desert foothills of the Andes on the east to the jagged mountains on the west bordering Lanin National Park, near the border with Chile. This is the very property where Red Deer from eastern Europe, were first introduced to Patagonia more than a 100 years ago. The stags in this region are a 100% wild, free roaming, game that wanders through their natural migrations as they did in the beginning of the century. Estancia Collun-Co was established in 1909 by Mr. Robert Hohmann, a German immigrant, when he acquired the land. The property has remained in the family since then. The main ranch house was built in 1912 and then fully refurbished and modernized some years ago. Meanwhile the hunting lodge is also situated at the ranch main headquarters. A beautiful and cozy wooden English-style house that is in the middle of the estancia, with amazing views of the mountains. Like all our other properties, we follow a strict herd management here, harvesting only mature old Stags that are at the peak past peak in their reproductive life. We stalk these big mountain deer that live in the remote and high cordillera and come down into the ranch looking for hinds during the rut.
