Big Game & Wingshooting in Argentina

Wingshooting in Argentina

My name is German Brandazza. During the last 9 years our company is handling 45000 acres in one of the best hunting areas in Argentina, where we have more than 15 hunting species:
* Big game hunting: wild boar, red deer, water buffalo, wild goat, black buck, axis deer, four horned sheep, fallow deer.
* Wingshooting & Small game hunting: dove, pigeon, perdiz, vizcacha, ducks and others.

The ranch is located 110 Km southwest of Santa Rosa city, the capital of the La Pampa Province. It is 700 KM from Buenos Aires, or 1.5 hours by air. You will be picked up in Santa Rosa and transported to the ranch in 4X4 vehicles.

There the hunters will take the flight to hunting area. Upon arrival, the client will be welcomed by his guide and transported to the hunting area

If hunters are not able to bring their own guns, we are able to provide them at each hunting area, with different calibes depending game requested. For big game, a 7mm or a good 300 caliber is recommended. For buffalo, we recommend 375 H&H caliber or bigger.
In order to introduce firearms to Argentina, foreign citizens will have to fill in one technical form per hunter (x3 and up to three firearms by form) which they will have to present to local authorities upon arrival at Ezeiza International Airport in Argentina.
The cost of this is of $600 per firearm (Argentinean pesos, that is approximately U$S 100). This is paid once in Argentina but the form can be completed before departure.
