Trophy Hunting (free range and game estate) in New Zealand for Red Stag, Fallow Buck, Bull Tahr and Buck Chamois.

Located in the pristine mountains of the South Island of New Zealand is a secluded trophy hunting ranch on 25,000 acres of private land known as The Hossack. Some of the best trophy hunting for NZ's big game animals can be found there. The testimonials on this website from our hunters tell the story of their successful hunts and friendships made.

Accommodation options for hunters and non hunters include relaxing with us at the Hossack's ranch accommodation from where you hear the stags roaring in the rut and the early morning and late evening native birdsong to staying at nearby 5 star accommodation.

When you have secured your trophies the local tourist township of Hanmer Springs contains thermal springs and offers many tourist activities.

For fantastic guided trophy hunting, privacy and genuine Kiwi hospitality contact John at or phone +64 27 2289915.

Tony Shanks with a Royal Red StagIt felt a lot like a great hunt at home in Nevada with a group of close friends; everybody hunted hard, walked hard, glassed hard, and had a great time talking about the day over dinner and a nice bottle of wine...

Greg MortonWhere in the world can a hunting client take a wild 14 point stag, hunt giant chamois buck, and harvest two rare Canterbury blue wild pigs, just two hours from an international airport. There is such a place. It is called The Hossack: just north of Christchurch:NZ, and I have just returned from the amazing adventure listed above. Thanks John and Jeremy: What a place!
