Join a WTA Consultant in the heart of New Zealand’s South Island for a memorable Red Stag hunt toward the tail end of the “roar” in late April. This is an ideal opportunity to extend your big game season and maybe engage in your first international adventure as a solo hunter! The properties you’ll be hunting are huge and loaded with game, including some of the largest red stag, some in excess of 600″. Thanks to decades of carefully-focused game management the quality of the red stag on these properties is unbeatable. Few trophies are as eye-catching as a red stag with mass, great width, and strong scoring points. The hunting is done by spot and stalk, accessing the properties in side-by-sides, glassing the hillsides in search of your trophy. There’s excellent cover and plenty of draws and gullies. This environment delivers all the excitement of hunting in raw, untamed terrain.
