Hunting the Ghost
the Forest (Axis Deer)
At Rancho Salvaje Safari we have two hunting areas (free ranch) located where the largest populations of Axis Deer in Argentina are found.
The hunt begins at sunrise, with an experienced guide, following tracks and stalking the animal through the bushy mountains. Once the large male is located, being patient is one of the most important guidelines to reach less than 165 yards/150 meters away as they are normally found in herds and any sound or movement can alert females dating an alert to flee.
When is the Axis Deer season in Argentina?
The Axis Deer season begins in August and ends in May, however, since the Axis Deer is an irregular animal, we can find males with antlers for months out of season.
Rancho Salvaje Safari offers Axis Deer hunting in two of the most famous places in Argentina for this hunting, giving you the possibility of combining hunting this animal with others. We can highlight the famous forests and dunes of La Pampa Argentina (Patagonia) with more than 25,000 acres / 61,776 hectares. As well as for people who want to do a hunt near Buenos Aires (2:00 hours from the international airport) we have a free field with more than 74,131 acres / 30,000 hectares.
Once you arrive at the Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport, we will wait for you and you can choose between transferring to the Buenos Aires national airport (Jorge Newbery International Airport) and then take a plane to the province of La Pampa (0:45 am) where we will wait for you to travel to the lodge (1:20 pm) or transfer by minibus directly to the Lodge (5:00 pm).
