About this hunt

Alpine Chamois/Gemse (Rupicapra rupicapra) Chamois are often seen as a ‘lesser’ trophy than the Tahr in New Zealand but they are equally challenging to hunt.They are attractive in both their tussock colored summer coats and their black winter coats, making them a great animal to hunt regardless of the season. Chamois are an extremely agile and fast-moving animal and they can inhabit some serious mountain terrain, making for some truly exciting hunting. The Chamois rut generally overlaps with Tahr rut, May to June but they can be hunted year-round. Summer coats are best in January-March. A male/buck and female/doe Chamois look almost identical but the buck’s horns have a ‘heavier’ appearance and a more defined ‘hook’. Our wilderness hunts are helicopter drop-off with tent camps. A good level of fitness is essential on these hunts to ensure you have an enjoyable experience.We focus on finding mature bucks over 9 inches but on the odd occasion we do shoot very old and barren does. Chamois hunts run 90-100% each year with our average buck 9 inches. Chamois hunts can be combined with Tahr in our wilderness areas.
