The following animals are available in the South Island.
Himalayan Tahr. These animals originated in Nepal and are sought after trophies. New Zealand's South Island Tahr population is world renowned. Hunting these alpine animals provides some of the most challenging experiences available.
Chamois. An Alpine Antelope, these graceful and beautiful trophies are found throughout the Southern Alps. The best guides are essential as these often elusive animals are difficult to source.
Red Deer. Mackenzie Alpine Trekking Co. welcome hunters into the wilds of Fiordland. The mountains and bush of this amazing region are unique to New Zealand and our hunting is in true Kiwi style - bivvies in the bush, living off the land, and doing the hard work to bag trophy stags in the rut. There is nothing to compare to the thrill of roaring at a full frown angry stag deep in the Fiordland bush, enticing him into battle.
Fallow Deer. Fallow can be hunted all year round not too far from home. The rut is slightly later than the Red Deer, early May is the best time for a trophy stag.
Wallabies. These animals are found not too far from home and provide challenging shooting for the best of shooters. They can be driven from cover under a shotgun or sniped from a distance.
