You face a lot of options when planning your New Zealand hunting adventure – our team is here to make things easier for you. We specialize in the South Island’s ‘big four‘: the mighty red stag, the stoic Himalayan tahr, the athletic alpine chamois, and the territorial fallow buck. We also access New Zealand’s finest elk herd! Mix in Merriam’s turkey, boar, goat, wallaby, and rabbit – and you’ll find us hunting in New Zealand’s hills nearly 365 days a year.
We hunt a lot. Southern Hunting Adventures plans and guides what we feel are real and unforgettable hunting experiences. Our hunters have amazing access to diverse swaths of New Zealand hunting acreage: we partner with more trusted local landowners, ranchers, and private estates than any other New Zealand outfitter to ensure that our animals and your hunting days are of the highest quality available in New Zealand.
Choose from popular hunting packages or build a hunt to fit your schedule, hunting preferences, and budget. Southern Hunting Adventures caters to all hunter ages, abilities, and fitness levels. Is this your first time hunting or first international hunt? Join us! We guarantee that your New Zealand hunting adventure will be stress-free & unforgettable!
