Argentina is one of the top 3 world’s most popular hunting destination, welcoming nearly 20,000 hunters annually from around the world.
As with most places the feral hog is probably Argentina’s most widespread big game animal, but the premier species is the red stag.
There are many great outfitters operating from numerous fine lodges and camps, and the country has a good infrastructure of both excellent roads and internal flights.
The big hunting activity is for birds, especially doves and pigeons, which are considered a nuisance and exist in untold millions in farming areas. Within established seasons there is also excellent waterfowl shooting and hunting for perdiz (partridge).
The primary big game hunting is for introduced species. The total list is long, but Argentina has some of the world’s best free-range red stag hunting, primarily in the western regions of Patagonia and La Pampa province.
