Red Stag Patagonia is proud to offer a hunting program on one of the best red stag preserves in South America. Owned by one of the oldest families in Mendoza, your hosts have been breeding and managing red stag herds for the last 20 years. By interbreeding 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.
The beautiful ranch main house, located right in the middle of the property, serves as our base where guests stay during the hunt. Also, up in the mountains we have a high-end camp where hunters usually lunch, nap, and even overnight if necessary. For large groups, we also use a boutique lodge located in a winery only 10 minutes away from the ranch entrance. The family personally takes care of all our guests.
This exclusive preserve spans 25,000 acres and sits on the upper levels of this huge ranch (150.00 acres). On the lower-elevation grounds, the family operates a productive white wine vineyard as well as cherries, walnuts, and other fine crops. The property is set against a backdrop of some of the highest peaks in the Andes. Mount Tupungato, visible from every corner of the ranch, is one of the highest volcanoes in the world. A couple of 20+ thousand feet peaks are within the ranch’s west boundary.
The fertile valleys of the Mendoza Andean foothills provide a perfect habitat for red deer, where they develop impressive racks, with some specimens naturally reaching the 450 SCI+ class. Elsewhere, stags of this size are only found in breeding farms in New Zealand and Europe.
