We chill or freeze your trophies until the hunt is finished. From there we will take them to our local Taxidermist where you can decide weather you want them mounted here or salted and shipped to your preferred company. Shipping costs vary according to crate size.

Our taxidermist can give you an estimate based on how you would like it done, upon request.

From New Zealand it goes to your country where it is recommended you use a customs broker to clear your trophies and forward onto your designated destination. Again our local taxidermist can assist you with this.

New Zealand is an Island we can have very changeable weather within a day or the week. We carry wet weather gear throughout most of the season and in winter good warm clothing as much like hunting in many parts of the central U.S, Alaska and Canada, but we will send you out a full list of clothing and equipment before you come down with us.

  • February-March: This is still in our summer, temps 38f (3c) - 80f (26c)
  • April-May: We are now going to fall, temps 32f (0c) - 65f (18c)
  • June-September: Our main winter months, temps 28f (-2c) - 55f (12c)

Exercising and working out before the hunt certainly pays off, especially taking on our mountain animals. Because of our well-tracked properties we are able to drive around most places from the valley floors which has proved over the years all ages and abilities of hunters the opportunity to harvest their magnificent trophies. Different properties will provide hunters with different levels of hunting to suit their requirements.

Our main hunting season is from late February-August. Most of the deer species rut late March-end April. Tahr and Chamois winter coats start late April, rut late May- end of July but they will have their winter coats right through to September. The main bird season is May-July but there are variations, like Pheasant April-August. The North Island Deer are hunted later in the season generally from May-September.

Which means the game have less pressure from hunting, it gives us the option to change properties according to weather and hunter’s ability. Every hunter or party can have their own property to hunt on. These ranches (stations) range from 8,000- to our largest 47,000-acre sheep and cattle ranch that is home to the first liberation of the Bull Tahr.
