HUNTING

The NZ Hunting Season and Top Of The Lake Guiding is open all year. Our Meat Hunts can be booked any time of the year in which you will be hunting for Red Deer or Fallow Deer. The peak of our Trophy season is in Autumn which is from March until June. This time is known as The Roar or Rut and is best for hunting animals such as Red Stag, Fallow Buck, Chamois Buck and Bull Tahr.
 
Our Free Range Property allows us to hunt Red Deer, Fallow Deer and Chamois Buck. We also have the option for hunting Bull Tahr, Arapawa Ram, Wild goats and Pigs in other locations.
 
The trips that we offer can accommodate any fitness level. You do not need to have previous knowledge or experience with hunting as we will cater to your own personal abilities and goals.
 
We can access the hunting land via foot, vehicle or helicopter. For overnight trips we offer a range of accommodation options; from a Luxury Homestead, Farm Cottage, Backcountry Hut or Wilderness Camp. This allows us to give you a customised experience and flexibility in price depending on what type of trip you wish to have with us.
