New Zealand Hunting Trip for Four Hunters

BIG GAME HUNT for Red Stag, Fallow Buck, Bull Tahr, and more

At High Peak Hunting, we specialize in guided New Zealand hunting on our 4500-acre game estate, the largest certified game estate in New Zealand. During the months of Mid February – June inclusive, High Peak hosts international hunters in pursuits of the Red Stag, Fallow Buck, Himalayan Bull Tahr, Alpine Chamois, Bull Elk/Wapiti, Arapawa Ram, Pacific Billy Goats, and more. These animals are New Zealand’s most iconic game species.

High Peak is where the search ends for the serious hunter interested in pursuing and harvesting a magnificent trophy. Whether you’re an experienced hunter looking for an opportunity to stalk a stag in full antler, a novice looking to get their first deer for the table, or a parent looking to take your son or daughter on their first hunting experience, High Peak’s team of professional guides have the skills, knowledge, and experience to deliver an exceptional outcome.

Morning tea is served during the hunt briefing, followed by sighting in rifles at the range, then heading into the field to scout animals.

  • High Peak Station was truly a high light of our life's experiences -
    Jul 19, 2023Review by-Freddie WHite

    My family's experience at High Peak Station was truly a high light of our life's experiences. The people of New Zealand are down to earth and a joy to be around. The staff of High Peak Station were nothing but kind, more than helpful in every aspect from lodge assistant Sasha, the chef Lloyd, the photographer and videographer "Smitthy" and of course the owners, Kate and Simon. The guides Carl and Greg were professional and experienced in every aspect. They were funny, found game like no other guides I've ever experienced. We came as client's and left as friends with everyone we came in contact with at High Peak Station. The game was more than abundant and we were all able to harvest top of the line trophies, from Arapawa Sheep, Fallow, Red Stag and Tahr. The experience of the helicopter ride hunting for my wife's Tahr with the pilot Rob and our guide Carl was a unbelievable experience. If you ever have a desire to hunt New Zealand this is whom I would highly recommend, I promise you will not be disappointed. Freddie White & Family

  • Thank you for all the help in making my dream hunt come true… -
    Jul 5, 2023Review by-Todd Robinson

    Thank you for all the help in making my dream hunt come true…High Peaks in NZ could not have been better hosts, guides, or hunting ambassadors.  As I said many times, this hunt for me was one I have dreamed of since the first time I was in NZ, and I never thought I could make it happen.  The patience and understanding of you and Simon and his team made my adventure one I will never forget or regret, and my family and friends will surely get very tired of me talking about it for many years to come. Simon and his crew are top-notch and were very incredible hosts.  The atmosphere that they create is relaxed, fun, and understanding of each hunter's unique needs.  I hope to return someday very much!!! Again THANK YOU for all your help in making this trip possible and for your patience and understanding.

    Jul 3, 2023Review by-James Pethtel

    Thank you for reaching out. This was the absolute trip of a lifetime. Simon and his staff were the best people I have been around. I don’t have one complaint about anything. I was fortunate enough to take a 438” Stag. Looking at planning another trip sometime to hopefully take my son on a hunt in a few years.
