All free range private land properties have vehicle access to the accommodation. We either stay onsite at the property or hunt from our lodge each day. The free range properties themselves have vehicle tracks (some more than others) so we can drive to certain spots and glass for animals. Sometimes we can use the 4x4  to climb right to the top of the mounatin and hunt down on animals. Polaris vehicles or 4x4 motorbikes may also be used.

Free Range Hunting New Zealand Information

Free Range Hunting Information

Hunting free range on private property is an awesome experience. It is a very special sight to see 60 free range bull tahr in a mob, we can show you this at certain times of the year at our private land tahr property. We can also show you 5-10 mature, trophy, free range red stags and 80-150 wild red deer on our idyllic Otago property which is only a stones throw from the liberation point of the world famous Otago red deer herd. Animal numbers and trophy quality on all private land free range hunting properties is first class.


Free Range New Zealand Hunting Terrain

Free Range Hunting Terrain

Because we're hunting mountain dwelling animals the terrain of our private land free range hunting properties is reasonably steep. The country is certainly not as harsh as wilderness hunting and with vehicle tracks we can take some of the dead walking out of the hunt. Generally we have solid footing on tussock filled rolling hill country. You will visit the spectacular vista's, sights and locations of some of the best, world renowned, free range hunting properties in New Zealand.

Free Range Hunting Fitness level

Free Range Hunting - Fitness

Reasonable to good fitness is needed on a free range private land hunt. We try to spot the animal we want to hunt before commencing a stalk, so usually the first 1-2 days of a private land hunt is spent glassing from the bottom, looking over different animals. The real work begins once we've worked out the habits and feeding area of the animal we want.
