Of both big solid mountainous of the south of the county of Buenos Aires, stands out for their height and extension that of Ventania that almost reaches the 2.000 m . and it covers good part of that provincial sector, of keeping inside their limits to the provincial park Tornquist, of more than 7.000 ha

 

There is. and the first provincial limit of more hunt, at the moment in recess, on the cord of La Ventana that has suffered the action of voracious fires lately, in spite of that which is one of the most tree-lined areas and it still conserves tips of herds of deer lady and axis, wild donkeys, gumps and male goats in rough state, of those which already many good trophies have been obtained.

The mountains, of same antiquity that those of Tandilia, that is to say, very previous to them alpine and Andean plegamientos, they are rocky formations of scarce consistency, reason why the montañistas that carry out scalings will always adopt the maximum cautions and not to trust the resistance of the cerdadas. This circumstance, on the other hand, becomes big advantages for the agriculture and cattle raising. The floors of the valleys are considered between the best lands in the county and the pastures, as well as the one surrenders grain and oleaginous, they are of first order.

This circumstance, more the existence of natural forests of prunings, espinillos and locusts, with the attaché of numerous formations boscosas of ash-trees, eucaliptus, oaks and other species of the north hemisphere, they have become the last decades to that region in a remarkable natural limit of hunt. Also, the existence of several natural slopes that meet in the system hidrográfico of the river Sauce Grande whose outlet in the sea has as hall the homonymous lagoon, famous for the abundance and quality of its pejerreyes, complete a very attractive square for the lovers of both activities, also encouraged by the relatively scarce distance of the big cities, inferior in less than the half at the distance that separates this centers of other concentrations like the area Andean south or the mountainous of the northwest.

 

Hunting

 

As we advance, the fundamental element in that area is the exotic medium deer, since the deer of the pampas (ozotoceros bezoarticus), formerly very abundant, it was disappearing of that mountain area for the intensive hunt and the lethal action of the aphthous fever. They are also carried out hunts of pumas of very good size that are made by means of agreement with the owners of the fields and to the rececho, with the help of packs of mestizo dogs.

A separate chapter deserves it the smallest hunt, since Ventania is a refuge inigualado of autochthonous hunt birds and, for already several years, of pheasants of the variety "necklace" or "Mogol" and "dark". In several stays that keep those reproduction areas still zealously, they have progressed in satisfactory form to the end of extending toward the northwest of the county, in the line of the parallel route to the limit with The Pampas.

In the merely local plane, let us say that the partridges comunes are plentiful (Nothura maculosa nigroguttata), the big or red, until prohibited today (Rynchotus rufescens pallescens) and the martineta or copetona (Eudromia elegans). Of three o'clock, the one that more expansion has registered in the last years has been the big or red partridge, there being you proven a certain decrease in the martineta, possibly as consequence of the disappearance of big herdsmen with natural pastures. Concerning this phenomenon, it also fits to point out that in the case of the red ones a great capacity of adaptation was observed so much for the change of pastures or of corners of natural field as for the resistance to plaguicidas of great toxic power. In that sense, when saying of the residents and scientific observers, the red one is one of the wild birds that better adapts and bigger defenses take advantage at times of the big campaigns with plaguicidas.

The European hare and the vizcacha continue in interest to the tinamiformes in this true one "small paradise" of the hunt. The hare has been decimated in several export campaigns to Europe , in spite of that which was able to adapt to the most mountainous area, impracticable for the vehicles used in the quantitative hunt. As for the vizcacha, it is good for hunt variants, since the members of trips of that type that never last less than three days (temporary limit of a smaller hunt of species), they usually dedicate an exit, in the evening twilight, for the shot to the vizcacha with carbine .22 and special telescopic aims of great brightness, since this great rodent of the pampas accustoms at sunset contain-you in the mouth of the caves.

Finally, the big doves (Turkish dove or columba picazuró) they have interested to many pedana marksmen for the difficulties of their flight and the enormous quantity of copies. In this case, it should be said that as much for those doves as for the gray bustard or caiquén (that has diminished enough in the last years), the hunt permits are obtained with great easiness.

Before closing these lines and by way of explanation, let us point out that the fact of mentioning some species only obeys the intention of informing the broadly most possible thing to the reader and future visitor of the area. Such it happens, for example, with the gump. This Andean camélido is not considered trophy in any entity of domestic sport hunt. The reduction of its habitats has reduced, also, the number of packs and the quality of its components.
