For the ultimate hunting experience!
New Zealand has the best Red Stag and Tahr hunting in the world. Exceptional trophies can be taken for all the species: Red Stag, Fallow, Wapiti, Ram, Goat, Sika, Tahr, Chamois. We travel to another area for Sika and to the South Island for Tahr and Chamois.
At Kanuka Wilderness we can offer you a 'hunt of a lifetime' experience in your quest for the ultimate trophy, the Red Stag. Our high country Wilderness area has a large percentage of bush cover interspersed with a multitude of clearings all of which make for ideal rifle, bow or muzzleloader hunting. We hunt by the spot and stalk method and all areas can be accessed by quad bike if necessary.
The annual hunting season extends for the duration of hard antler, March thru mid-August. Hunting is good for the entire period. The rut takes place during April. The South Island alpine trophies, Tahr and Chamois, are best hunted May thru July when they are rutting and in prime winter coat. New Zealand's seasons are opposite to those in the Northern Hemisphere. North Island - March high 81, low 38. South Island - March high 77, low 26.
