Hunting is a popular activity in the Methven Area. There are countless places to choose from including Department of Conservation (DOC) managed areas, and plenty of different species to hunt. A range of experienced hunting guides are based in the Methven area.
A combination of a temperate climate, no natural predators, plentiful food and minimal competition has allowed many game species to thrive in our natural environment and consequently, some of the world’s finest trophy species can be found in New Zealand. Hunting environments in New Zealand include free range, game estate, hunting blocks, and fair chase.
Targets in the Methven area include red stags, fallow deer, Himalayan tahr, chamois, boar, goats, rams, wallabies, and possums. We also offer waterfowl and game-bird hunting.
We strongly recommend that visitors to the area hire a local hunting guide; the surrounding mountains are physically demanding and the high country weather is unpredictable. Local knowledge is also essential for a successful hunt. Guides take care of all the access & concession fees, can supply rifles, ammunition, equipment, meals/refreshments, and assist with your taxidermy requirements too.
Our team have the knowledge and aircraft to get you into these incredible pristine mountainous areas and remote huts.
