Puna Tinamou is generally uncommon, but has a large geographic range, and the population is believed to be stable. The IUCN Red List status is assessed as Least Concern (BirdLife International 2014).

Effects of human activity on populations

Human population is very low in most areas where Puna Tinamou occurs, so there is little effect on the species from activities such as agricultural. Presumably this species is subject to some hunting pressure, but this has not been studied, and probably is low. No threats to Puna Tinamou are identified by BirdLife International (2014).
