Argentina Big Game Trophy Hunting


Our host ranches are located in Chaco and Sante Fe, Argentina while giving clients access to over 1.5 million acres of hunting ground. You will not find a finer ranch, host, estancia and trophy quality of game than our Argentina operator.

Big Game

Take this exceptional opportunity to hunt the majestic Red Stag, the exotic Axis Deer, the incredibly beautiful Indian Black Buck, Water Buffalo  and many other species. Also, collect free-range native species of Argentina such as Capybara, Brown Brocket deer, Collared and White Lipped Peccary in the wild area of Chaco.

We offer a unique opportunity to hunt 15 species of South American trophies and the possibility to combine Big Game Safaris with bird shooting in the same area.

The terrain is flat but varied, with rivers, lagoons, swampy areas, farmland as well as bushland. It makes an excellent hunt for a varied game population.
