All of us were taken care of very well, from the wonderful meals, clean rooms and great guides, thank you! It has always been a dream to hunt free-range stags during the roar and it exceeds my expectations.

I will certainly recommended and will considering coming again.”

What an amazing week spent as a very well treated guest here at this magical place. I never expected as many red deer as these are that inhabit this enchanting countryside. The amount of encounters with quality animals was simply staggering.
Eduardo is a good guide as any! His knowledge of this landscape is unparalled. The food that Mane has prepared has been top notch! Carlos & Celeste are very professional and very gracious hosts.
House keeping + on site taxidermy staff on top notch. I will never forget this wonderful week spent. “

# I can honestly say that this past week has been by far the most exciting of my life! Free range hunting is extremely challenging! Without some luck, even rifle hunting these stags can be very tough. (My two animals are the most beautiful in the world).
However Mapu Hunting Lodge is simply excellent! The owner Carlos and his lovely daughter are amazing, true professionals. Thank you!. My primary guide Joaquin is the absolute top notch guide anyone could hope for.
Pembroke Pines, FL
# I have to say my experience was absolutely fantastic. From the first rate guides, accommodations and fantastic free range ranch. I saw animals everyday with numerous spot and stalk and I had several opportunities.
I would recommend this hunt to anyone interested in a true big game experience.
# This was my third 3rd trip to Argentina and the best of the three. Hunting was excellent and the food was fantastic. The guide was very good and did what ever he could to get the job done. I was very please with everything and would come back soon.
# This was second trip to Argentina by far best loved spot and stalk hunting. Food was excellent, lodging all great. Joaquin was terrific guide. They made you feel like family. I hope I can make it back again soon.
# I don’t know where to begin…This place is the one. I have traveled around the world hunting and I can say top 3 of all destinations. Great food, service and the hunting is great. Can’t wait to come back soon.
Thank you Carlos and Celeste.
Pembroke Pines, FL
# Let me start by saying this was one of my best hunt experience I have had in a long time. The staff was absolutely outstanding. The food was second to know. The daily service was the best of by far, We will be back with the family in 2018. My best to Carlos, the owner, to giving me the best hunt of my life.
Thank you again to everyone,
# I wanted to thank you for the hospitality that your extended to me on my recent hunting trip to Mapu Lodge. Your graciousness Celeste and that of your father was exemplary. We enjoyed dining with you and sharing a small part of your life.
I would recommend your lodge to any hunter who wanted to hunt red stag. When the stags began to roar, I felt like, from the lodge, I was in the midst of them. I never imagined that I would be able to hear the roar from my bedroom. In the field, the impression of being surrounded by stags was unmistakable.
My guide, Eduardo, was very competent and put me on several good stags resulting in my harvesting two trophies. The rooms were large and extremely clean. The food was outstanding
Thank you Joaquin for recommending the lodge. You very professional and gave us many valuable tips on hunting.
I have no hesitation in recommending your facility to any hunter coming to Argentina to hunt the magnificent red stag.
# Mapu Lodge,
What a week of expectations exceeded every hour of everybody. As we drove into the ranch we were greeted with wild life on the dirt roads. The warmest hospitality upon arrived. Here we are now with my best friend Stephen’s all of the wonderful personalities that make Mapu Lodge the benchmark for big game hunting trips.
We have enjoyed first class food, service and company. Most importantly our hunting experience have been unforgettable. We have successfully harvested everything we hope for. We look forward to coming back to enjoy the fantastic experiences as soon as possible. Wish we could stay longest.
Thank you Carlos & Celeste for making this possible and sharing your passion with us!
Keep doing what you are doing,
Palm Beach Gardens, Fl.
# Amigos, Amigas at Mapu,
I was looking forward to the trip the day we decided to come to Argentina. I had no idea what to expect when we arrived, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. I absolutely loved being at the ranch with all of you. So many life long memories created in such a short time. It was five of the fastest and longest days ever.
Eduardo (guide), you are a walking + hunting machine. I truly appreciate every minute you put into making this the coolest hunting trip of my life. BY FARRRR!!!!. Many Thanks.
Carlos, you have an amazing place here. I wouldn’t change anything about it! Look forward to coming back.
Celeste, You were attentive to us gringos. I enjoyed speaking with you!
Mane Chef, if you lived in America I would eat at your restaurant any time. You are the bomb.
So much to say, but we have to get to the airport.
Wish I had more time to write.

A lot of memories
# Don’t even know where to start, there were so many amazing memories created in the trip. The hunting is out of this world. I did not expected to get that close to many free range stags. Definitely one of my top hunts to date. It is hand to top a stag roaring in your face when you have the cross hairs of your scope on him. Also can’t neat hearing all the roaring throughout the night –just made me dream more about hunting stags. I got a beautiful trophy stag and I couldn’t be happier.
We hunted hard; had so many close calls and then it all came together perfectly.
Joaquin (guide) was very impressed with his hunting skills. He knows how to locate those stags and exactly how far they are. Trust me with that one because I lost a bet!
One thing for sure is that everyone at Mapu Hunting Lodge went above and beyond to make sure our every need was tended too. The food is 5-star. Definitely going to miss the chef. Rooms very comfy- Just can’t stress enough how everyone here went out of their way to make sure my hunt and stay was perfect! Really enjoy the laid back feel- great place to relax and enjoy your hunt. This is how hunting lodge should be, Mapu Hunting Lodge does it right!
Thanks for putting up with my cameraman August and me. We definitely had an amazing trip, tons of great memories. Looking forward to putting this show together! Can’t thank everyone enough for this amazing experience. Hope to see you all again soon.
# I’m so glad to be apart of Mapu’s first season! What a unique and beautiful ranch + lodge. You guys really know how to entertain! Larysa and I had a blast and we both wish that we were staying longer. Best of luck to you all and hope to see everyone again.
