Hunting areas: we have three high fenced hunting areas which are approximately 2,000 - 3,000 acres and a free range hunting block that is 40,000 acres!

Amongst these blocks are Red Stag, Fallow, and Elk. These blocks are located in close proximity to our hunting lodge in the Wanaka and Lake Hawea surrounds.

Alpine animals are hunted on our large free-ranging concessions in the West Coast of the Southern Alps.  We have availability to friendly and comfortable accommodation in Fox Glacier.  We typically access the West Coast hunting concessions via helicopter from Queenstown airport or Wanaka airport.
