To us the hunting experience is just as important as the trophy and we aim to fulfill every client’s expectations regarding both.
We believe that the game animals of New Zealand deserve respect and should not be hunted behind wire, from a helicopter or in unfair conditions for the animal.
We work hard to ensure as much of the usable meat possible is used for our hunters and families or donated to those who need it.Oops, No listings Found!
