  • Free Range chamois hunting in New Zealand

    New Zealand hunting is unique because it is the only place in the world where Himalayan Tahr and European Chamois can be taken on the same hunt on large private stations (over 50,000 acres) in the Southern Alps on the South Island of New Zealand. Nowhere else in the world can Himalayan Tahr and European Chamois be hunted together!

    • Tahr and Chamois can be hunted in New Zealand all year, but their skins are at their prime in the winter months, April through August. For both Tahr and Chamois the rut is from mid April through May.
    • Hunters will see an abundance of these beautiful alpine animals in their mountainous habitat and have the opportunity to take world class trophies on a traditional spot and stalk, free range foot hunt.
    • Contour varies from river flats to steep hills, snow and ice covered mountains up to 12,000 feet. Vegetation is grassland, tussock and pockets of native bush.
    • Lots of time will be spent glassing during tahr hunting and chamois hunting so good optics are essential.
    • The Southern Alps are physically challenging to hunt, but the stations are well tracked and you can often climb to hunting level effortlessly on ATV’s.
    • Accommodation is in comfortable cabins that have hot showers. If you wish, a luxury lodge is also available for an extra fee, and must be arranged in advance.

      All-in-all this hunt was an awesome experience that I will definitely repeat. Anyone thinking of hunting New Zealand, just go and do it, as I have proved you don’t have to spend big dollars. The terrain and hunting is so vastly different to our country in Australia that just being there is an experience in itself.

      I can’t recommend this New Zealand tahr hunting adventure highly enough, and anyone wanting to hunt NZ would not go wrong hunting with this outfitter, he is a straight-up bloke who hunts at your pace and really knows and loves his Tahr hunting.

      We had a great hunt in New Zealand. I took my dream Stag and Tahr, then had time to add a nice Fallow Buck. Also got to watch my Wife, Mary take her first Big Game animal a nice old 12pt Royal Stag. We both really enjoyed the hunt and the personal attention we received from the Outfitter and his Wife, the lodge and the meals were great. I could not have asked for a better hunt, I have dreamed of a Stag like this for years and THANKS to you my dream came true.

      I would highly recommend these guys to any one wanting to hunt New Zealand. Thanks again, until we meet again, maybe in Australia?
