Whitetail Deer Hunting  New Zealand

In New Zealand whitetail deer are very secretive and elusive, free range whitetail deer trophies are hard to obtain. We offer a backpack wilderness hunt for free range whitetail in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. This is a tough demanding hunt, but the rewards are high, the ultimate prize being a free range south pacific whitetail. This hunt is usually run as a whitetail and chamois combination hunt, which is obvioulsy a very unique hunt. Alternatively we do have game estate options available for hunting whitetail deer.

Whitetail Deer Hunting General Info

Free-range whitetail trophies are becoming harder and harder to find. Whitetail are the animal which used to be a real ace card for us at Lake Hawea Hunting Safaris as we used to take more whitetail trophies than any other New Zealand Outfitter.

We are still coming up with successful results on our wilderness whitetail backpack hunts. This is a tough hunt in demanding country, but there is no other hunting expereince quite like it. 

 If you are looking for that big trophy buck a game estate hunt may be an option.
