Trophy Red Stag hunting in New Zealand is predominately on private land. The land is either leased to professional guides (as is the case for Telford Hunting), or the landowner outfits the hunting by directly employing guides. With high numbers of stag and managed hunting, success rates of 90-100% are expected. Classic 12-18 point trophies are common, trophies sporting 30-50 points achievable and world record heads do occur.
Red Stag rut from mid-March through to mid-April. This “roar” period enables hunters to pinpoint a now very vocal quarry. Pre and post rut hunting is available from mid February when stags strip their velvet until the antlers are cast in late August. The reverse seasons to those in the Northern hemisphere helps draw hunters to New Zealand in time for prime hunting of Red Stag.
Hunting Red Stag
“Just want to say thanks for a wonderful hunt and a great experience in the beautiful area of Wanaka and Lake Hawea. The accommodations were fantastic, the meals were amazing and Tony and Duncan were fantastic to hunt with. Certainly a hunt of a lifetime for us, and the fact that we all hunted together made it even more special. Will highly recommend you to anyone we talk to that is interested in hunting in NZ for Red Stag, Fallow buck, Chamois or Tahr.”
