One of the most popular free range big game hunts in South America is Argentina Water buffalo hunting. Large lagoons, marshlands and the thick bush, especially in the province of Corrientes is the ideal habitat for them. Here at Outdoors International, we and our outfitter partners in Argentina consistently work on providing great hunting packages with exceptional accommodations and service.
Argentina Water Buffalo Hunting
- Water buffalo hunting is very interesting because they are dangerous, unpredictable animals. The first shot is essential since once injured they have great resistance and aggressiveness, so it is essential to locate it in their vital organs.
- The hunting season for Water Buffalo in Argentina is long and lasts from March all the way to November. March and April can be extremely hot, so we recommend hunting in May at the earliest.
- There are two key regions for hunting Water Buffalo in Argentina: La Pampa and Corrientes.
- We recommend to use of large calibers for buffalo hunting such as 416 Rigby, 470 NE or even larger. The smallest caliber that we would recommend would be the 375 H&H.
- Archery hunting for water buffalo can be extremely exciting, just make sure that you’re setup is heavy enough. We recommend you use the same archery setup that you would for cape buffalo.
Where is the best Argentina Water Buffalo Hunting?
Our outfitter partner in Argentina has arguably the best properties for buffalo hunting in Argentina both in La Pampa and in Corrientes. Although both areas differ in landscape and the other species roaming each area, both make for a great hunting experience depending on the client’s trophy wish list. It is not uncommon for clients to hunt both areas in search of multiple species and to be able to experience hunting in two completely different areas of Argentina.
Similar to other big game hunting in Argentina, La Pampa is a key region for hunting Water Buffalo.
La Pampa is a common area for hunting due to the fact that it has areas with deserts, salt lakes, short bush, and grasslands. These different ecosystems home many different types of animals, especially big game animals that are ideal for hunting. If you’re a wingshooter, then adding a day of dove or pigeon shooting onto your hunt is a popular add-on in La Pampa.
If you would like to combine your Argentina water buffalo hunting experience with Red Stag, La Pampa is your best bet. The area is well known for exceptional Red Stag and Blackbuck hunting, as well as a variety of other big game species. Additionally, the terrain of La Pampa is mostly flat with some areas of rolling hills, so hunters tend to find this region much easier for hunting than other regions of Argentina.Get More Information
Corrientes is probably our favorite free range Argentina water buffalo hunting destination.
As well as La Pampa, the province of Corrientes is one of the most important areas for Argentina Water Buffalo hunting. This province is located in the northeast part of Argentina. The very extensive marshlands and thick forests are the perfect habitat for these large wild bovines that thrive in the area.
This ecosystem is also home to the best free range Axis Deer trophies found in Argentina as well as other species such as wild boar and capybara. Other indigenous species that can be seen while hunting such as the Brocket Deer and the Cayman enhance the whole experience. We offer an exceptional Argentina Water Buffalo/Axis Deer Hunt Package in Corrientes.Get More Information
