Every year I visit new properties to see what hunting opportunities are coming on stream. This year 2010 I have three crackers that are going to have me very busy through the Autumn months of April and May. From April 1-4 I will be hunting wild red stag and chamois buck at the Hossack, a huge ranch that is only two hours from Christchurch International Airport. The stags are good, but it is the quality of the chamois buck that is of greatest interest to you the overseas hunter. They are huge. I will let you know how the trip went soon, and add some pictures to whet the appetite. From April 12-16 I will be in the North Island looking for a sika stag on Poronui Station, a 5 star Lodge and ranch which has the best sika stag hunting in the country. The game estate and trout fishing is also excellent, and the hospitality second to none. Let you know how things went. Trip three is on a new red stag and chamois buck property located next door to the top bull tahr property owned by Lilydale Safaris, once again close to Christchurch International Airport. Bring it on I say. Picture of a bull tahr pair were taken on Lilydale last year.
