Free range Tahr

10.0 of 10

The free range Tahr hunt in the southern Alps was the full experience I was looking for. Accommodations were excellent from the alpine cabin in the mountains to the lodge for the fallow deer hunt. Tim, my guide was knowledgeable, and took care of everything. Food was great, scenery was great! Lots of animals in the valley we hunted.

No complaints

Unforgettable hunt of a lifetime

10.0 of 10

Booking was an absolute breeze thanks to Joy & Tim was super accommodating for my hunt. Anything and everything I wanted to tackle in my 4 day hunt was taken care of and more! I’ve never had so much fun in my life. As a Canadian using thermal gear and spotlights was really cool and I couldn’t get enough we hunted day and night, Tim had top of the line equipment ensuring no target was walking away. My hunt was jammed pack with action with a ram, goats/wallabys/deer/hares/possums/boars. I can’t wait to come back for years to come.

My face hurts from smiling from smiling the whole time during the hunt/stay with New Zealand Trophy Hunting.

A trip of a lifetime!

10.0 of 10

What can I say? We had an unforgettable trip made possible by great mangagement from Carla and world class guiding by Tim. The scenery, the wildlife, the hunting, everything was top of the line! Carla were responsive from day one, and nothing is impossible for this lady. Very flexible, kind and foremost keen on setting up a trip of a lifetime for you! Tim. Where do I start? I been hunting 14 different countries and been through alot of guides, both good ones and not so good ones. But Tim has stod out, I can honestly say that he shares the top position together with Mark Comins from Chumlet Safaris (South Africa). Absolutely nothing is impossible for this guy, he walk all the extra miles to make sure youre having a blast. He is what I would call a true hunter, with ethics, knowledge and passion for the game. We will definetly come back as soon as possible to New Zealand and hunt with New Zealand Trophy Hunting again, and I would recommend anyone to also do so! Greetings from Sweden, Calle and Kjell

Had to go home.
