Hunting New Zealand Stags

For big-game hunters, and especially anyone who’s truly fixated on pursuing bugling elk, there’s a “shadow” season for closely related red deer that occurs in the southern hemisphere. This hunt however, peaks during the months of March and April when North American antler fanatics are out of business. One red deer option is Argentina, but many hunters prefer to make the even longer journey to New Zealand where they find monster stags in a friendly, wonderfully scenic, English-speaking nation. To share the story, here’s a photo gallery from a super New Zealand hunt I recently experienced with a group of fellow American hunters.
