Red Stag Argentina

Argentina has the perfect habitat for big game hunting, fishing, and wing-shooting. The country is rich in farm and ranchland with more than ten big game species. Argentina hunting seasons start in March through late July. The temperature is much cooler during these months for a more pleasurable experience.

Whether you prefer crossbow, rifle, or bow hunting, expect to have experienced hunting gaucho guides at your side.

Argentina Hunting Seasons

Argentina is in the summer hemisphere, so the seasons are opposite the United States. January is the warmest month of the year, so you can expect February and March to have longer days and be hot. While March is the start of the fall season, it is also the wettest. Ensure you pack hunting gear to keep dry during the rainy season but lightweight to protect yourself from the heat.

Argentina’s hunting seasons start in late February until the end of July. You will find prime game, such as fallow deer and red stag, that has matured near the end of February and early March. Axis deer can lose their antlers at any time but can get hunted during the middle of fall and winter.

Expect to hear the red stag rut in the middle of March, which will last till mid-April. May through July are excellent times to hunt because it is cooler and there is some rain. Spring is usually the low season for hunting, but the weather is fantastic as it is much cooler. Expect to be able to hunt the same species that you can in the summer and fall, except for red and follow stag. Nearing the end of July, Axis deer will drop its antlers.

Available Species in the Spring (September through November)

  • Blackbuck
  • Water Buffalo
  • Axis Deer
  • Mouflon Sheep
  • Wild Boar
  • Jacobs 4-Horn Ram

Argentina Dove Hunting

Argentina is the number one place for pigeon and dove hunting and is known for its excellent climate, geography, and abundance of doves and pigeons. There are so many pigeons that there are no federal bag limits, but it gets recommended that you don’t hunt more than 150-200 per day to hunt sustainably. Due to the temperate climate, doves breed 4 to 6 times yearly because of the many crops, water sources, and places to nest.
