I go to New Zealand every 5 years or so because my wife used to live there and my wife's sister still lives there. I got to thinking today since I go up there every 5 years, why have I not gone hunting up there! Of course, it would have to be guided so I was wandering if any Kiwis could post up on this thread with a good guiding service. Private land hunting is good but no high fence stuff for me. The two hunts that I am interested in are the Red Stag and Tahr. I don't need a huge Stag to make me happy either. I found two guides services that look pretty good but one seems to cheap to be true but who knows. The first guide service is: Gary Herbert's New Zealand Hunting It is pretty darn expensive but seems really legit. They accommodate just about everything. The next one is: Big Game Hunting in New Zealand - Sunspots Safaris This one seems really cheap for what they offer. Round trip airfare is even included in their pricing. Let me know what you guys think. Would be extremely helpful if any Kiwis could chime in with their knowledge if possible. Oh yea...and long range friendly would be very good.
