New Zealand is the crown jewel when it comes to the outdoors. This four day hunt includes a trophy red stag, scoring from 380″-410″, plus a day of action packed duck hunting for a variety of species such as paradise ducks and mallards, along with deluxe lodging and incredible meals. Located on the picturesque South Island and surrounded by the Southern Alps, the brand new lodge features six spacious guests rooms, each with a full private bath, great room, outdoor courtyard with fire pit, and even a heated swimming pool. This time of year is also prime time for the tahr and chamois as it takes place during their rut and they have long winter capes then.
