This is an ALL inclusive hunt includes all your meals, drinks, lodging for the night, hunt, Cape and quarter.

Cost of this bull is $4300.00

I believe he will score 275-280.
 
 


Serious Inquiries only.

Packages include 1 night lodging, all meals & Guide Fee.
Extra night $125 per person

Book it for Valentines day and this hunt is $300 off!

I would love to go red stag hunting, and I will do so sometime before I die. Not that way, though.

When I do it, I will travel to New Zealand, Patagonia... some place like that, and hunt them in their natural habitat.

Beautiful animal.
 
How would it be hunted: enclosure or free range?
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

They would move him out a couple of days before the hunt you would want to spot and stalk this guy.

And I'm dead serious when I say I plan to make that dream a reality sooner rather than later.

Anybody else interested in such a trip?

Hunting in New Zealand for red stag is without a doubt my "dream hunt," only slightly edging out hunting in Alaska, doing a moose hunt, or going after a big bull elk in a limited draw, high trophy quality area somewhere.

I'm giving serious thought to doing it as early as possibly next year; certainly within the next 5 years, and I've been doing some research on the various outfitters. If anyone here would be interested in going with me and isn't just paying lip service to it only to back out on me at the last minute, let me know.

Alaska is mine. But not just Moose, I would love to go up there for two weks and do a Grizzly, Big Horn, and Moose hunt.

...even though I realize they aren't native to NZ. However, they were introduced there sometime in the 1850's or 60's, so for all intents and purposes, they've been there so long and adapted so well, they might as well be.

It's looking like it will cost in the neighborhood of $15K, to go with a good outfitter... not counting airfare and taxidermy.

You'll love it Ted, was one of the great experiences of my life.  Bow hunted with my SIL in Fiordland National Park.  Only had a couple of days, didn't harvest one but the scenery was worth the trip alone.  Very rugged area where we were hunting made me wish I was about 30 years younger.  Your outfitter will give you the details but like all mountain area hunting had a wide variance in weather. Some of the plant life was a real bitch, the spaniard grass and gorse makes you pay attention and the spaniard grass will test your footwear if you accidentally kick one.  Take along a fly rod as well if you can fit it in.  Lots of beautiful rivers and almost no-one around.

Thanks for the feedback, Craig! I remember you telling me about going to NZ a few years ago.

From what I've seen from pics, New Zealand is definitely a stunningly beautiful country! My late parents went to NZ years ago and they told me if they could live anywhere else on the planet besides the US, New Zealand would be the place.

You better believe it!  If/when I hunt stags, it will be in NZ as you say, not some catch and release deal (no offense SM).

None taken, I think it would be great to go to NZ, how ever this caters to a local crowd.

Ted,

Keep in mind most of those NZ outfitted stag hunts are high fence too...

Any idea what size those ranches are over in NZ?  I wouldn't be interested in going that far to hunt a small place.

Many years ago, I wanted to do a fly fishing trip to NZ but my marriage  kinda got in the way. Not sure I could be in a plane that many hours these days. I seem to remember someone telling me it was around 30 hours of flight time.
