Experienced, professional hunting guides
offering deer hunting
and other trophy hunts amongst magnificent mountains in the South Island. Our 4,000-acre ranch is just 15 minutes drive south of Kaikoura near Christchurch. Our luxury hunting lodge has wonderful views of both the Pacific Ocean and our bush clad valley which extends to the west and is home to red stag, fallow bucks, feral goats and wild boar. Exclusive hunting concessions to chamois and thar close by.
The New Zealand hunting season is from March to the end of August. The best time to hunt Red Stag, Wapiti (Elk) and Fallow is during the roar, which is March through to the end of May.
Tahr and Chamois are at their prime from late April until August, however can be hunted all year round.
We offer both “Free & Wild” hunts and “Game Ranch” hunts. If you wish to hunt “Free & Wild” I would advise that you budget on 5 days hunting minimum. This type of hunting requires a good level of fitness.
Access to remote areas that we hunt is either by Helicopter or 4WD.
