Los Crestones Lodge is located in Castelli, province of Buenos Aires, on the banks of the Saldado River, in one of the most traditional Estancias in the country, among slopes, plains and 60 hectares of fully preserved natural woodland. In a stunning natural frame, four are the landscapes featuring Los Crestones Lodge:
Brought from India to Argentina in the late 1800s, Blackbuck antelope quickly established a foothold across the fertile countryside south of Buenos Aires. In the early 1900s, they were introduced to other areas of the country where wild, free-ranging Blackbucks continue to flourish—especially in la Pampa province. Today, prolific Blackbuck herds can be targeted within a short 45-minute drive from Los Crestones Lodge. And here we hunt the area where Blackbucks were first introduced thanks to leases and hunting rights at local ranches. Typical hunts involve spotting and stalking trophies along established routes between feeding grounds. Ground blinds and, sometimes, tree stands can be set up for archery hunters near known watering holes and fence crossings. For the ultimate challenge, there’s nothing like stalking Blackbucks with a bow in the field.
In addition to Blackbuck options, the lodge has Axis deer. Axis deer thrive in the bushy areas of east central Buenos Aires province. Similar to Blackbuck pursuits, one full day on these animals adds big game diversity to your bird hunting adventure. But in order to harvest a trophy buck we suggest two to three hunting days on productive local ranches. Our experienced guides will cater to all your hunting preferences. We have accurate rental rifles. We also have archery gear, but since a bow is something personal, we strongly suggest bringing your own.
