Hunting at Tipiliuke is particularly exciting during the March/ April roaring season. The favored method of hunting during the rut or roar, as it is referred to in South America, is to glass known rutting areas along the river or in the high plains surrounding the river valley. Once a stag is spotted, hunters stalk it until it is within rifle or bow range.
Typical shots average about 150 yards with much longer shot opportunities readily available in this open habitat. Hunters either hunt from horseback or trucks. Our clients typically take home one to two trophies per trip as well as free/management stags.
If you enjoy fly fishing, Tipiluke Lodge sits on one of Patagonia’s world-renowned trout fisheries, giving you access to 17 private access miles of the Chimehuin and Quilquihue Rivers. For the ultimate experience, guests can complete a Patagonia “Grand Slam” with trophy Red Stag, a dozen California Quail, a Russian Boar and Rainbow & Brown Trout.
