Red Stag Trophy Hunting New Zealand

RED STAG

_____________


NEW ZEALAND HAS THE WORLD'S BEST OPPORTUNITIES TO HUNT RED DEER. NEW ZEALAND RED STAGS ARE RENOWNED FOR BEING THE LARGEST IN THE WORLD 




The most-widely spread deer species in New Zealand, red deer (Cervus elaphus) were introduced to the South Island in the late 1800’s. Today, hunters can track the adaptable red stag in New Zealand’s hills, valleys, forests, mānuka scrub, tussock, river bottoms, and more! An average New Zealand red stag can weigh 400 pounds, carry the largest antlers of any deer in the world relative to their body size, and their mating call “roar” is a sound you’re not likely to forget.


NZ red stag hunting is best from February, when the hunting days are still warm and stags are in hard antler, through mid-August when stags begin to drop their antlers. Peak ‘Roar’ (or rut) stag hunting occurs mid-March through the end of April. Red stags will split off from the hinds and may join bachelor groups in May and June to prepare for winter.
