New Zealand Hunting Season
New Zealand is not restricted by hunting seasons, however our Outfitter prefers to operate from late February through August, as the seasons here are opposite from the Northern Hemisphere. This makes New Zealand hunting a great “off season” option.
Hunting in primarily conducted via spot and stalk with the opportunity for some calling during the roar. Hunters are welcome to use their preferred weapon of choice, be it archery, rifle or muzzleloader.
Using a helicopter to assist in a tahr hunt in New Zealand is the norm. Talk about an adventure!
