Big Game Hunting
A typical day will begin with a full breakfast, a morning trip into the field to hunt, a relaxing lunch back at the lodge, a mid-afternoon nap, and another afternoon big game hunting experience. Then, enjoy cocktails, wine, appetizers, and dinner with courses inspired by the local Kiwi culture with fresh venison, chicken, beef and vegetables, and local deserts. The Winning Bidder is responsible for the cost of all trophy fees.
Enjoy a 4-night stay in two rooms (double beds) with En-Suite bathrooms in a lodge created with your comfort in mind. Savor local-inspired gourmet meals and superb New Zealand wine and local beer in the main dining area. Relax in the living room and share stories about your successful day of hunting. Located in the Canterbury region of New Zealand, approximately one hour’s drive from Christchurch, transportation from the airport to lodge included.
Hunt thousands of acres of prime New Zealand ranchlands and farmland for up to 12-species of Big Game animals. The most popular time to hunt Red Stag is mid-February through the end of April, while the best time to hunt Tahr and Chamois is May through July.
Since New Zealand is below the equator, the seasons are opposite of those in the United States. Therefore, your Big Game hunting experience is available from February 15 through the end of July for 2023, 2024, or 2025 seasons.
