Experience the thrill of a buffalo hunt without going to Africa and for just 1/3 the cost.
These free range Argentine water buffalo are every bit a tough and cantankerous as the African Buffalo and can outweigh them by as much as 700 pounds. All buffalo hunting is spot and stalk or from blinds over water holes. Tracking the buffalo through the thick, brushy landscape is very exciting. A reasonable fitness level is required for spot and stalk and 2-3 mile treks are not uncommon. Hunters who can’t make the stalks can easily hunt from blinds over water holes or safari style drives. The buffalo usually water once or twice a day depending on the weather.
The buffalo hunts usually start after a nice made breakfast served at 7am and hunting starts at 8am. Scouts are sent out at first light to look for the buffalo herds on 89,000 acres of prime Argentine countryside. Clients will usually hunt until noon and then return to the Estancia for lunch and a short siesta while the buffalo bed down during the afternoon. The afternoon hunts usually start around 2:30pm and go until dusk. Both bulls and cows have horns. The bull’s horns have a heavy mass and the cow’s horns are narrower but can be just as long as or longer than the bull. An Argentine Water Buffalo can weigh up to 2,500 lbs. which is up to 700 lbs. heavier than the largest African Cape Buffalo at 1,800 lbs. Come to Argentina and enjoy the thrill of a wild buffalo hunt at 1/3 the cost of Africa.
