About hunting in Oceania

The South Pacific may not be the first destination to come to mind when considering a hunting trip, but New Zealand and Australia both offer outstanding hunting opportunities and are great outdoor adventure destinations for hunters and their families. New Zealand is famous for its mountain game, especially Himalayan tahr and chamois, as well as for large and impressive red stags, along with a variety of other game. All of New Zealand’s game animals were imported by settlers a century ago but have established healthy populations in suitable habitat. Likewise, Australia’s most sought-after game animals, water buffalo and banteng, were transplanted to the continent decades ago but have established large wild populations in the country’s sparsely populated northern and western regions. Australia also has numerous species of deer, including sambar, fallow, red, hog, and rusa deer, and the deer hunting is excellent in many areas. Rabbits, feral hogs, and other introduced mammals are frequently hunted as well. New Zealand and Australia are beautiful, scenic countries and excellent family destinations where hiking, fishing, sightseeing, wine-tasting, and many other activities can be added on to a hunting trip. “Kiwis” and “Aussies” are some of the friendliest people you’ll meet, and tourism in both countries is very well organized and enjoyable.

5 day Red Stag Hunt free range

5 day Red Stag Hunt free range New Zealand

Red Stag, the Monarch of the Glen. They are big, heavy antlered animals and arguably the most exciting big game animal in New Zealand to hunt. Between 1861 and 1919 over 250 red deer were released in New Zealand for sport directly imported from the UK with better genes being released from The Great English Park and Scottish highlands in areas now world renowned for producing trophy animals such as the Rakaia and North Otago Herds. Now red deer are found throughout New Zealand both North and South Island in reasonable numbers.

Already have a Red Stag trophy? This combo is pure alpine hunting for Tahr and Chamois. Get ready for amazing views, exciting hunting and a true mountain hunt. Includes all helicopter fees and 5 days of daily rate! Our tahr hunts are on foot and for our West Coast wilderness hunts we access our spike camp by helicopter. This allows us to hunt these magnificent animals in the beauty and serenity of their alpine home, undisturbed by the influences of man. Our guides are very experienced at hunting tahr and over the years we have had a very high success rate harvesting top quality trophies including the current World Record #1 Himalayan Tahr taken in 2012 on wilderness land. The tahr rut is from May to July and the best time to hunt tahr in their long winter coats is from April through August. Chamois can be hunted all year round but during the rut is the best time when their lush dark winter coat is at its best. We hunt chamois from March through August and the rut is May/June. Chamois make a fine trophy and are a worthy game animal to pursue.
