Offer description

Welcome to Wilderness Quest New Zealand
You will find the finest of New Zealand trophy hunting located on the wild and beautiful West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
Red Stag and Tahr - a Favorite Duo!
Combining a Red Stag hunt (300-330 SCI) with an alpine hunt for a big bull Tahr is the most popular hunting pursuit in New Zealand. Includes all helicopter fees and 5 days (4 nights) daily rate.
Red Stag
The first footprints of Red Stags in New Zealand were in 1851 and since that time Red Deer have flourished into what we have today! New Zealand is a sub-tropical island paradise abundant with rich vegetation and completely absent of large predators. Over the years there have been further introductions of improved genetics from England and Germany. Combining these genetics with our perfect growing conditions it is no surprise that our trophy Red Stags are the best to be found anywhere in the world!
Please note that the Stags on our pictures rate more than 330 SCI points. If you are interested in such a big Red Stag check out our other offers.
The iconic outline of a mature bull tahr silhouetted on a high rocky bluff is not to be soon forgotten by the hunter as he toils closer with each step. The old bull stands high and proud as he surveys his alpine domain, the wind blowing through his long mane brings every scent from the steep slopes below.
Himalayan tahr are one of the most sought-after alpine trophies in the world, they are nimble and fleet of foot and prefer the mountainous rocky steep bluffs to easier terrain below.
Originally from the mountains of the Himalayas they adapted well to the Southern Alps of New Zealand and we now have the best huntable population of Tahr in the World.
Visiting New Zealand is like stepping back in time. The pure rivers, stunning scenery, and the friendly, positive attitude of the people are all bonuses to our world-class hunting, fishing and sightseeing.
To us a quality hunt is not defined by a number in a record book or by getting an animal on the ground as quickly as possible. The journey we experience on each hunt is an adventure that is not to be forgotten, resulting in a fine trophy at the end of a "hunt of a lifetime"!
We know the time, effort and investment that each hunter has put into their hunting trip and we are committed to providing the best service and care possible. We do not claim to be the biggest outfitter in New Zealand, nor is that our aim. What we offer our clients is a personalized hunting experience in the privacy of their own hunting party and we cater to hunters from all ages; first time hunters, hunters with bows, muzzleloaders, crossbow and rifle. THIS IS YOUR HUNT!

Territory information

Type of territory: Free range

Area: Mountains, High mountains

Languages: English

Hunting methods: Stalking, Battue

Additional information: There is a major difference with our hunting and that is our location on the West Coast of the South Island. The West Coast of New Zealand is in the rainforest side of the island and is very thick ferns and bush. This gives us the benefit of having heavy cover to hunt in, the animals heavy cover to hide in and dark antlers on the stags. This is a stark difference to where most of the outfitters are on the east side of the alps where it is very dry and quite barren and mostly the stags have very pale white antlers. Our Red Stag hunting is in the Haupiri Valley nestled at the base of mountains on the West Coast of New Zealand with stunning views, snow fed rivers, and lakes shrouded in mist. Our tahr hunts are on foot and for our West Coast wilderness hunts we access our spike camp by helicopter. This allows us to hunt these magnificent animals in the beauty and serenity of their alpine home, undisturbed by the influences of man.
