South Island New Zealand Merriam's Turkey hunting

Spot-and-Stalk Thundering Toms Year-Round

Don't Overlook NZ's Turkey Hunting

Without seasons or bag limits, chasing New Zealand's wild Merriam's turkeys makes for the perfect hunt or add-on to a big game hunt!

New Zealand Turkey Hunting

Turkeys made their way to New Zealand in the mid-1800s. Now a frequently overlooked gem, turkey hunting in New Zealand is a bit different than a lot of other places in the world. We utilize spot-and-stalk hunting (similar to our big game hunts) and attempt to set up in front of moving birds. Join us on a turkey hunt to fill up the freezer and your hunting photo album!

New Zealand Turkey Hunting Seasons

Hunters can chase turkeys year-round in New Zealand and without a bag limit.
