2018!! We are still hunting!!

2018 has been a monster year for Southern Hunting Adventures!!

Our trophy hunting and mature harvest operation has been supplying world class animals to hunters from all over the world and our meat hunting guides have been filling ice boxes and photo albums with food and memories.

We’ve had father/son, mother daughter, husband/wife, mens groups, womens groups and solo hunters.  The season has had triumphs, disappointments, danger, adrenaline and a whole lot of laughs, smiles and best of all, a lot of new friends!!

With the 2017 winter alpine season drawing to a close we are now offering our 2018 dates for Tahr and Chamois alpine doubles in New Zealand’s mighty Southern Alps.

These animals are regarded as the Kings of the New Zealand mountains and we hold them in high regard as a trophy species.

Spring and summer hunting will continue for those hunters that still require summer coat animals for their trophy room from now until early February 2018 and dates are available for this.



We have dates available hunting Tahr and Chamois from March of 2018 but the season is filling fastEmail us on info@trophyhunting.co.nz to secure your adventure….
