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.
All hunts are guided and include the services of a professional guide, vehicle, optics, firearms, and ammunition. Hunters are also welcome to bring their firearms and ammunition. Your professional guide will be on hand to manage and assist in all aspects of the hunt, from the all-important safety brief and target identification to animal recovery and meat preparation.
Our taxidermists and butchers will take care of the arrangements for post-hunt care of your animals’ meat, capes, and heads.
