    Any members here ever hunt water buffalo in Argentina? If so, what is the experience like? is it a hunt very similar to cape buffalo hunting, and if so any recommendations on an outfit with fair chase hunting. Would also like to include blackbuck and pig. Thanks

    Following. I’m pretty interested in this as well, as it seems like a much more budget-conscious option than cape buffalo.

    One outfit I looked at offered buff/blackbuck and pig 8 days $5800. Hard to top that.

    @MG Hunting is a site sponsor too, perhaps they could chime in.

    I'm looking into a buff hunt down there in the near future myself! I've been in contact with a few folks I have met at DSC the last two years.

    Let me know what you come up with. Might be something we could do together.

    Yeah man will do. The guy I'm speaking with mentioned a group hunt, so I would be game for that with a couple of AH'ers!

    This is a hunt I'm very interested in doing. If you get any specifics please post them.

    As you look into a hunt in Argentina be sure and do your homework. I have read of difficulties with firearms import. They have been making you apply through a consulate as I recall. Sometimes hard to get paperwork squared away. So caution there. The second problem has been getting trophies back. I have read of several that have had lots of problems and much higher shipping costs than expected.
