Bowhunting Water Buffalo in Argentina
Water buffalo were originally introduced into Argentina in 1940 from India, Ceylon and Indochina. There are several species of water buffalo now found in Argentina (Murrah, Jafarabadi and Mediterranean being the most common). The animals are basically the same but the horn configuration is slightly different with each species. Most of the water buffalo found in Argentina will have the shorter curling variety of horn in contrast to the water buffalo in Australia which are much wider.
Water buffalo are big animals and when bowhunting them, heavy archery equipment is important. They can also be aggressive and require caution when bowhunting them.
