I go with Trophy Class Outfitters every year. Now I even guide for them. I plan on hunting Iowa this year.

I'm mostly a do-it-myselfer. But some hunts warrent or require a guide/PH.

Mountain Lion, Sheep, Brown Bear(req)....

Almost any African hunt.

Re: Do you ever go on outfitted hunts?

I have hunted Roe deer and Wildboar in Germany, wildboar in Maine, and a variety of African plains game animals in Namibia.

All of it has been ok, Namibia the outfitter sucked and we almost went to fistycuffs but the hunt was fine.

I got married since then and am raising a family so I won't do as much for a while as I once did, but it is a priority for my wife for me to hunt.

I am going to New Zealand self guided next May with some Aussie friends. And I will probably hunt Water Valley alone next year if I can afford it for Sambar, Rusa, and Hog deer.

What variety of animals will you be hunting? I assume you'll be going to the south island. I know that the open, non-private areas are a hard find for Red Stag of any size anymore. They just are gettting too much pressure and the government game management has been very poor to encourage any type of regulations to allow any trophies time to grow. You can get on some private ground for them, chamois, tahr and fallow deer for less than you think. I know that the next time I go I'll pony up another $2K and do that. It makes sense to me after paying the amount it costs to go there. I hated the flight, way too much air time! Let us know how you did. You'll still have a great time, particularly if you've never been there. Stay away from Australia. Too damn many poisonous snakes. They have 11 of the worlds deadliest there.

No, paying for hunting has just never sat right with me. I spend tons of money on permits for duck hunting at Refuges and I have absolutely no problem with doing that but paying someone to take me hunting just seems wrong.

I am an American living in Australia. I hunt here all the time. Of course there are snakes but there are snakes everywhere!
