Im going to be helping a good friend of mine in New Zealand this spring. He has a few openings still available. Tahr chamoi and Red stag. All free range. Ill be there March and April.
I love that country. I assume since you may be going after Tahr you will be on South Island?
One day I hope to get back there.
Yes all south island
Had a blast hunting there and Queenstown was a blast to hang out in for a few days
I already have a trip booked for Spring 2023 but would like to talk you or your friend about 2024.
Its a great hunt in a beautiful place!
Hello! I'm headed to New Zealand on 09 March to hunt with Southern Peaks Safaris. I just saw this thread and was wondering if you happened to be helping with this outfitter? Also, do you have any can't miss experiences that we should be planning? I'm going with a buddy, and after our hunt we will have a week or so to just hang out and see the sights. We are going to "wing it!" Any recommendations would be great! Thanks! - Jeremy

You're a short hop from Australia. If you have the time, you can book a hunt for Buff in the NT. Also got Hogs, Camels, Dingos, and about 20 other feral animals you can arrow - even cats! It's a lot cheaper than doing another 28 hour round-trip to Aus.
If in Queenstown we did the helo ride, whitewater rafting and a jet boat. My wife and I had a blast.
Queenstown has a lot of bars and resturants too we spent plenty of time in.
Ill arive on the 12th. Will stay untill end of April. Real kiwi hunting is the outfit we will be helping. Great young family awesome hunting!
Definitely on the bucket list one day!
Arrived today. This place is so beautiful! Cant wait to get on the mountain.
Forest - Please post pics and updates when you can.
Post up some pics Forest! I need to get some free time to head that way in the spring. Couple more years...
It is amazing how clean and beautiful it really is in NZ.
Have fun, Forest. Hopefully, we can meet up sometime in the next month.
