Trophy Hunts on New Zealand's South Island
This great outfitter consistently produces some of the very best Red stag, chamois and tahr trophies to come out of New Zealand each year. Located near the town of Whanganui, their beautiful lodge offers fantastic accommodations and superb views of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean (ASK MARK). All hunting takes place on the South Island, famous for its spectacular scenery and the trophy quality of its game. Stags are hunted along with many other species such as fallow, Wapiti, Rusa, Sika, Sambar, and Arapawa Sheep.
The numbers and quality of the stags here are unmatched, with trophies from high silver medal to super gold medal taken on a regular basis. Chamois and tahr hunting takes place in the higher peaks of the area, where clients will have the choice of experiencing challenging foot hunts, or utilizing helicopters to access this remote and rugged terrain.
The deluxe lodging, gourmet meals, spectacular scenery and lots of things to do, make this an ideal hunting vacation for couples. New Zealand is one of the cleanest and most pristine places to visit on the planet. You need to put this one on your “bucket list” and bring the wife or girlfriend on a trip she will never forget!
