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.

The Roar usually takes place from late March until late April. We continue to trophy hunt until August, at which point the large stags are near to casting their antlers. The Roar or the Rut is the best time to hunt Deer in NZ, being the mating season when species such as Red, Sika and Fallow Deer become quite vocal and therefore are easier to locate. The Red Deer begin to rut during late March and through April, with the Sika Stags and Fallow Bucks beginning in April and continuing through May. Although the rut is the most popular time to hunt, very often the period after is just as productive. If you want to hunt wild boar or goats, the time of the year is not critical, good trophies can be taken all year round. Your guide will cape and salt your trophies. Mounting can be arranged here in New Zealand and you may have your trophies dispatched freight forward by air freight to your specified destination. The Taxidermist will complete all necessary documentation and bill you directly. Please inquire for available dates.
