New Zealand South Island Big Game Hunting
Free Range Red Stag, Mountain Goat, Water Buffalo, Wapiti, Sika, Fallow Deer, Tahr and Chamois Trophy Hunts
Four Seasons Safaris New Zealand offers fair chase Hunting safaris on exclusive privately-owned land where both record book ‘Free Range’ & ‘Game Ranch’ trophies are regularly taken. In addition we personally arrange and guide safaris into the most remote corners of New Zealand and Australia – the choice is yours.
We offer packaged hunts for Tahr, Chamois, Fallow Deer, Red Stag, Wapiti (Elk), Sambar Deer, Rusa Deer, Wild Boar, Mountain Goat, Arapawa Ram, Sika Deer, Whitetail and Water Buffalo to name a few. Our Hunting Guides are highly qualified professionals with many years of guiding experience to ensure both your safety and success, while enjoying an exciting hunting experience.
Because we hunt year round, your South Pacific family or group vacation may also include skiing for the non-hunting members of your party. Remember, Mt Hutt, one of the country’s premier ski areas, is right at our door, with the ski season running from June-October. The main trophy hunting period is from March to September. The ‘Roar’ is in full swing and the stags with their impressive antlers are out chasing the hinds during March and April.

Hunting Outfitters South Island NZ
Be exposed to some absolutely stunning scenery, from open rolling country, to the steep forested foothills that form the barrier between the plains and the spectacular snow-covered peaks of the Southern Alps. This forms the perfect habitat for our South Pacific game animals and available for the hunters of the world to enjoy. Don’t forget your cameras.
New Zealand Hunting Lodges
Challenging, and conditions often harsh. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable and rewarding it can be. However, we will tailor a hunt to your ability and level of fitness. Our safaris use 4×4 vehicles, polaris rangers, jet boats and helicopters to access prime hunting locations and stalking is carried out on foot.
Non-hunting partners can join us on the hunt if they wish, or we can arrange an unlimited number of alternative activities for them, from sightseeing to skiing in-season in the mountain range that towers above the resort where your outfitter is based ‘Terrace Downs’.
