Southern Lakes Safaris invites one hunter and one observer for a true New Zealand mountain hunting experience. This 5-day, 1x1 guided rifle hunt is for Himalayan tahr. Schedule hunt with outfitter for open dates May 23-June 20, 2020 or 2021. This Southern Lakes tahr hunt, usually 2-3 days, is in some of New Zealand's most scenic and rugged backcountry. After gaining initial access via 4-wheel-drive or helicopter, you will be trekking through the backcountry with an experienced guide and spot and stalk numerous mature bulls along the way. This tahr hunt involves a true wilderness experience where they establish an initial base camp in the mountains and hunt for 2-3 days or as required to secure a trophy bull tahr. Afterwards, hunter has the option to stay and hunt additional tahr or shift hunting grounds and focus on the many other species they offer. This aspect of the hunt is suited to the more adventurous hunter looking for a true mountain hunting experience unique to New Zealand. After hunting in the mountains they return to their home base in the beautiful mountain resort town of Wanaka, where the remainder of the hunt can include additional hunting opportunities to suit your interests and budget such as red stag, fallow, chamois, elk as well as some exceptional varmitting for wallaby and rabbit. Included in your hunt is high-quality lodging and meals in our home base, camping equipment and quality meals in our mountain camp, professional guiding, field prep, transportation, photography, the day rate whilst tahr hunting, and trophy fee for one bull tahr. Not included are any before/after hunt expenses, and gratuities. Additional hunters and non-hunters are welcome and may be added at our current retail prices.This is a high-altitude mountain hunt, so a high level of fitness is required, and we will be sleeping in tents on the mountain. Helicopter access can be added for a nominal cost at the clients' expense. Arrival and departure will be Queenstown, New Zealand, where we will pick you up to make the short drive to Wanaka.
