A choice of trophy or meat hunts awaits you on this stunning property.

This is hunting at its best – on stunning private land, with varied terrain and magnificent scenery and staying in a backcountry lodge.

Expert, Friendly Guides

As a guest of Tongariro Wilderness Adventures, you will be hosted by qualified guides who are members of SCI, and all have extensive experience at hunting in New Zealand bush environments.

All have a passion for hunting and the preservation of natural environments, to ensure the continuation of hunting throughout NZ.

The thrill of tracking trophy animals for our guests is part of the enjoyment, and sharing it with others is what we are all about.

Hunt exclusively and safely on 10,000 acres of native bush, surrounded by Tongariro National Park – this is true hunting New Zealand style.

Trophy Hunting

March – July is hunting at its best in NZ.

Superb trophy animals, 12 – 20 pointers present an irresistible challenge.

The terrain provides a variety of opportunity from steep faces to grazing flats to view and prepare for your trophy shot AND capture some of the most precious memories ever to be made.

Other wild trophy animals include fallow bucks, wild ram, goats, turkey and ducks (in season), hares and rabbit – all in abundance.

Meat Hunting

Whilst a trophy for the wall is desired by many hunters, they are not available all year round.

A meat hunt is a great way to learn to hunt, or keep your skills sharp, enjoy the New Zealand bush, spend time with friends or family and put a bit of meat in the freezer all at once.

Come and join us for a guided meat hunt on 10,000 acres of private land in the central north island.

We can provide everything if needed if you are just new to hunting or you can bring your own kit if you prefer.

All hunts are guided so you get the advantage of having expert local knowledge of the block. We know where the deer like to hang out.

There is a mix of bush stalking and clearing hunting on offer.

Side by side vehicles are used to traverse the property on the network of tracks that weave their way through the regenerating native bush. This is an adventure in itself, a definite highlight of many guests..

Meat hunting is the way that we manage the deer population to make sure that we have a high quality herd of animals.

We target both cull stags and female animals. Limiting the population helps us make sure that we have high quality stags to hunt in the trophy season (March April). Both red deer and fallow are available to hunt.

Spend the night with us . . .

Meat hunts normally happen as an overnight experience over 24 hours although 2 nights is preferred, staying at the off grid lodge on the property.

With modern facilities and ensuites in the rooms it is far from roughing it.

We would suggest that you arrive at midday so that you can have an afternoon / evening hunt, enjoy an evening at the lodge, and depart late morning.

You can stay as many days as you like.
