Corrientes: Water Buffalo

Asiatic Water Buffalo (Bubalus Bubalis)

The Water Buffalo in Corrientes Argentina were all introduced years ago and currently  inhabit the Paraná River Delta and surrounding area.  They turned out to be an unfavorable livestock and were either let go or escaped.  Today there are an untold number of these wild animals in the province.  Herds have no boundaries or fences; however, they do tend to remain in specific areas, which is often private property and near water.  Our Argentina Water buffalo hunting guides and scouters know which ranches have the best bulls.


These bulls average 2,100lbs, 2.7 meters long, 1.7 meters tall.  They are every bit as dangerous as their cousin the African Cape Buffalo.  Our method for hunting them is spot and stalk.  Shots are taken anywhere from 30-100 yards.  We recommend nothing smaller then 375 H&H.  The Water Buffalo can be hunted all year.
