This outfitter hunts the South Island of New Zealand. He specializes in custom tailored hunting adventures throughout the South Island. He also hunts on the North Island, but he concentrates on the South Island. A range of unique big game species are available including Sika, Sambar, Fallow, Bush Bulls, Wild Boar, Goat and Ram. He is equally at home with rifle or bow hunters.
The quarry of choice for hunters visiting New Zealand are usually Red Stags, Himalayan Tahr, European Chamois and Elk (New Zealand Wapiti). All of these species were introduced to New Zealand from overseas 80 to 150 years ago. There are no indigenous mammals in New Zealand — and therefore very few predators. He hunts many areas on the North and South Island, so just tell us your wish list!!
