The Big Three

FREE-RANGE RED STAG, BULL TAHR AND CHAMOIS

6 days | 5 nights
$16,000 per person

This is our most popular package and for good reason! The top three of New Zealand’s iconic big game species in one hunt.

Your first hunting destination is approximately a 3-hour drive south of Christchurch International Airport to the small township of Fairlie, Canterbury. Your second hunting destination is a 2.5-hour drive south of Fairle, Canterbury to Wanaka, West Otago. We have exclusive access to three of the best private free-range tahr, chamois and red stag hunting areas in New Zealand. You are guaranteed to see an abundance of first-class game daily on both properties. All hunting areas have great 4WD tracks, so helicopter access is optional.

Accommodation options vary from a brand-new lodge situated on a private lake, a refurbished cook shop in the heart of the station, a beautiful holiday home, a historic cabin set amongst the mountains or spike camping. Hunts are conducted daily from base camp and taken place on foot in spot and stalk style.

A bull tahr of 13” +, a chamois buck of 8.5” + and a red stag of 280 SCI + is considered to be of free-range trophy quality on our private hunting areas. The rutting period for red deer is from mid-March through to mid-April, the tahr rutting period is from mid-May through to late-July and the rutting period for chamois is from mid-May through to late-June. If the main target species is a red stag and you want to experience the “roar” we recommend booking for early April. Bull tahr and chamois capes are not in the best condition at this time of year, so you will have to compromise. Alternatively, we recommend booking for late-May. You may catch the tail end of the “roar” or red stags will be in bachelor mobs post rut. This is still a fantastic time to hunt red stags and you will experience the tahr and chamois rut. Tahr and chamois winter capes will be coming in to their prime at this time of year.

A good fitness level is recommended. Private land has the advantage of great 4WD access, limiting the amount of mountainous walking if required. We recommend training in preparation for your hunt if you want a greater chance at mature trophy class animals.

Alpine Double

PUBLIC LAND WILDERNESS BULL TAHR AND CHAMOIS

5 days | 4 nights
$11,500 per person
*Helicopter fees not included*

The ultimate alpine experience for the adventure hunter!

You will be picked-up from Queenstown International Airport and driven approximately 4.5 hours to Franz Josef on the West Coast where you will be taken by helicopter in to New Zealand’s pristine snow-capped mountains. Hunts are conducted daily from a canvas wall tent base camp or spike camp and taken place on foot in spot and stalk style.

You can expect to see 3 – 10 mature trophy-class bull tahr a day and 1 – 3 mature trophy-class chamois bucks a day. A bull tahr of 12” + and a chamois buck of 8” + is considered to be of public land trophy quality. Our professional guides will always hunt for the best available. The rutting period for tahr is from mid-May through to late-July and the rutting period for chamois is from mid-May through to late-June. We recommend booking for late-May through to early-June to enhance your experience and chance of harvesting mature animals.

A good fitness level is recommended. We recommend training in preparation for your hunt, as mature alpine animals are habitually in hard to get to spots.
