The pampas deer occupies a wide variety of open grassland habitats at low elevations. These habitats include areas temporarily inundated by fresh or estuarine water, rolling hills, and areas with winter drought and no permanent surface water. In some places the grass is high enough to completely cover a standing deer. However, much of the original range has been modified by agriculture and other human activities.
