Owen goes above expectations

10.0 of 10

A great number of animals, combined with the fact that no other hunters where ever seen! Owen’s knowledge of the animals, hunting area, and the country was top notch. Record book animals where seen almost every day.

The hunt that met the hype.

10.0 of 10

It was the greatest and most successful hunt I ever had. Owen Trowbridge and John Smith took me out hunting three times. I came back with three trophies. I only fired 4 bullets. The rest of the time I got to see the beautiful country of Aotearoa with my family. The outfitters knew the terrain, they knew the game, and they had great equipment. The hunting unit was beautiful with fantastic views. The block was literally teaming with life. I heard Elk roaring, I saw white deer, I saw massive stags, scores of does, streams trickling down the mountainside. weather was gorgeous . Temperature was between 55-58 degrees. As we walked around we never spoke much.We just listened to the forest. After 20 minutes of sitting, glassing and listening, animals started appearing from all directions. Owen is soft spoken but he has a great confident presence. It’s almost like he knows exactly where the animals would be. Owen was never in a rush. He never seemed frustrated or stressed. I have only been hunting for 8 years. Mostly in Hawaii. Owen met me where I was at and made me feel like we are just going to the store to pick up a few groceries and a trophy red Stag. No pressure. He’s waiting for us . Sure enough he was there. My second guide John also had good insights and instincts. He helped spot my last trophy just hanging out at the bottom of this steep ridge. He was like let’s go get him. John basically carried all the heavy gear, and helped document the hunt. He always had a smile and was enthusiastic and positive. It felt like I was hunting with a couple of my brothers. I miss them both a lot even though I literally had just met them face to face 5 days ago. They are not catering just to millionaires. They love the outdoors and they like meeting the different people that passes through. They are the peoples outfitters. They cater to the old and the young. The novice or the expert. If you love the outdoors. If you value people and relationships. Look no further. It is the first time the hype was far exceeded by the results. These guys are the real deal. @Jim Shockey Go check these guys out. Owen Trowbridge and John Smith are top shelf people. Special mahalo to Caitlin who took my daughter and my other half shopping, sightseeing, strawberry picking while dad was completing the hunt of a lifetime. I hope my daughter gets to hunt with you when I come back very soon. Wendi and Susannah told me to tell you hi. You were a huge part of the beauty of the trip and the experience. Thank you.

Coming home. I wanted to go Tahr hunting which they offer as well. Next time ..

Bucket list Red Stag

9.7 of 10

Guides were top notch. Accommodations great and meals were delicious. We had some travel delays and the outfitter made schedule changes to accommodate. Habitat and game were amazing. PLUS, my beautiful partner was able to harvest a stag as well!!

Travel to New Zealand was horrific. However, once we arrived everything calmed down and we were greeted with kindness and open arms.
