  • Genuine free range red stag hunting in New Zealand Hunt free range red stag in New Zealand on private ranches.

    These are working sheep and cattle ranches ranging between 10,000-46,000 acres. All of the ranches have free range hunting for tahr, chamois and fallow deer.

    “New Zealand is a beautiful country, and hunting wild red stags is one of the best ways we can think of to experience it.”

    This is a special hunt on private ground holding a great number of wild, trophy bulls. The outfitter limits harvest to ensure quality and high numbers of their wild herds. Many hunts are done from horseback, but that isn’t for you, 4×4 trucks and Polaris ATV’s are also available. You will spend a lot of time glassing for a good bull and once one is spotted, a stalk will be planned. During the rut, calling is used and sometimes you will hunt over bait.

    You can also choose to add tahr, chamois and fallow deer to your hunt. (also free range)

    Hunting Season is late February through the end of August.

    Non hunters and kids are welcome as well. This is a great family vacation.

    They have two incredibly nice hunting lodges. Where you stay depends on the size of your group. One is three bedrooms and the other has four bedrooms and sleeps up to ten people. Both of these lodges have TV, WIFI, en suites, and laundry service.

    If you want something smaller and a little more remote, they also have a small hunting cabin right in the heart of the hunting area.
