    My boss recently handed me orders to travel to Argentina on business and of course I can't help but think of the possibilities of maybe squeezing in a Blackbuck hunt. I will be there in early September and was hoping to hunt close to Buenos Aires, as that is where I will be staging from for work. Does anyone have any recommendations, thanks!

    I'll be doing a high volume dove hunt in Argentina in November.. these guys are just a short regional flight from BA, are pretty affordable, and have been really helpful/responsive to all of my http://www.argentinasbesthunting.com/

    I dont know if they do blackbuck hunting.. but they got some really good reviews for both fishing and a variety of birds.. we're doing a 4 day "cast and blast" with them..

    I'm going with TGB outfitters in March 2018 for stag and blackbuck and hoping to add in a day of birds as well. They are picking us up in BA, but I'm not sure how long the ride is to be honest.

    You might contact @ROCKET who is a PH in Argentina.

    Also @ActionBob has hunted there and has a recent report.

    I actually never made it over to the neighbors where the blackbuck were. However other people in camp did while I was there. It was a fenced operation but not easy hunting. The first couple shot from the truck and got a couple but with some effort as they would run and keep their distance at the sight of the truck.

    Then a couple hunters from Panama went after them and insisted on doing so on foot, I don't think they got one but can't remember exactly. I believe one hunter got a fallow or something at last light. But they really only tried a half day.

    very bad write up here on this site.
    However, honestly, I think the "truth" is somewhere in the middle..

    I am in no way affiliated with any operation anywhere, but I'll send you some links of outfits I've been talking to.

    Enjoy Argentina!! Take Ms. AdGunner too!

    That's a dream, both my daughter and DIL are fluent Spanish, I'd lvoe to take the family for a week and get a few days hunting in!!

    Couple years ago, they had a change for rifle imports, but now I understand that's straightened out.

    May think about an Axis/fallow/blackbuck combo, though not sure what's available in September?

    BTW; If you need a baggage handler, I know this guy.........

    Sadly, I am the baggage handler on this one:) Definitely going after a blackbuck (all year round), we'll see what else I can squeeze in.

    Hi

    Adguner, as the fellow wrote lines above, contact "rocket"... Fernando ... A great outfitter and a good friend.
    As you might, there are a lot of Incian "antilopes" near Buenos Aires city...
    I dont know about the places, but there is an experience I dream to live any day...

    Well, finally started out on my trip to Argentina! Won't be out hunting until next Sunday as a little thing called work has to get done first! Only have one maybe two days to hunt so really hoping for good weather!
