Foreword of the founder

We all have been affected by the pandemic one way or another, but the outfitters have all been heavily hit in particular by the travel bans. Most of them did not have clients for two years in a row.

This has brought changes in their operations, both good and bad.

They are glad to be welcoming the hunters and fisherman back, but their costs have gone up substantially. The increase in fuel prices alone is daunting when you consider the additional trucking costs to their remote operations.

The good news is that many of the operators have used the past two years to improve their operational infrastructure. The very limited pressure on the game and fish resources over the past two seasons have resulted in increased numbers and age structure.

Although prices have suffered of the inflation, I still think it is important for us as hunters and fishermen to support our outfitters as they are providers of the great experiences we seek.

Another topic that is bothering us all is the threat of the trophy bans.

In several countries motions seeking to block the importation, transit and taxidermy of hunted species in appendices I, lI and Ill of CITES. Fortunately, in a few countries these motions have been defeated or overturned thanks to different hunting organizations by providing the authorities with scientific research published by IUCN or WWF on the important contributions of hunting and fishing. Understanding how CITES export quotas work to prevent overutilization of species at risk has been the predominant factor in convincing regulators.

A ban on CITES trophies would interfere with the transshipment of trophies throughout the world, but more importantly would negatively impact conservation efforts and the livelihoods of rural communities worldwide. Conservation decisions should not be dictated by foreign governments and misinformed lawmakers.

BUT... as a conclusion, this shows that when you explain how important hunting is, we can win!

Scandinavian Pro Hunters

Unique Geese shooting

In Skåne, we offer fantastic goose hunting on and around our hunting lodge Markie Hage. The best conditions for these hunts are often difficult to predict, but when the big migration of birds are coming to our areas we are then normally seeing ten thousands of geese in a day, so those who are lucky enough to be able to participate may be rewarded with the goose hunt of their lives. There are no bag limit so every year we are having days with 200 plus geese in a day!

World class Roebucks in Skane, South Sweden

It is no coincidence that Swedish Roebuck are classified as the most beautiful buck in the world. Tall, slender, and symmetric, they will provide you with an awesome trophy that will most certainly find a prominent spot in your home. Scandinavian Prohunters have the best privately owned properties in the Southern part of Sweden / Skane where we every year shoot big gold medal bucks. The hunt is out from our charming hunting lodge. www.scandinavianprohunters.com

Graet Spanish Hunts

The red-legged partridge is a endemic to Spain considered the most sporting and challenging bird in the world?by hunters due to its beauty, audacity and fast and erratic flight. The driven partridge shoot is a shooting style with a long and deeply rooted tradition in Spain, which allows the hunter to enjoy the red-legged partridge in a far more challenging way, since the speed and height reached are unbeatable, putting more than one expert wing shooter to the test.

Our shoots are some of the best and most famous in the country. Groups of 3 to 10 guns usually bag around 1,000 birds per day or even double that amount depending on their shooting skills.

Thanks to the wide range of estates we manage and their diverse and beautiful landscapes we are able to offer some of the most spectacular and challenging drives to be found in Spain. Featuring birds with fast and erratic flight, both low and high flying, we can offer drives that allow hunters to enjoy very varied and challenging shoots. A pair of 12 and 20 bore double-barrel matched shot

About the Alberta Professional Outfitters Society (APOS)

In 1997, the Alberta Professional Outfitters Society (APOS) was established as a delegated administrative organization (DAO) for the Government of Alberta. APOS’ delegated responsibilities include licensing the province’s hunting guides and professional outfitters, managing the distribution of guided hunting allocations, and holding members accountable to a Code of Ethics. We provide members with competitive liability insurance, a voice within government, and advocacy on key issues. APOS represents over 500 professional outfitters and handles licensing for nearly 1,600 hunting guides.

About Alberta

Alberta is a hunter’s paradise, featuring a wide variety of big game and bird game species. Some of the game you will find in Alberta are moose, black bear, elk, bighorn sheep, white-tailed deer, mule deer, antelope, cougar, wolf, bison, waterfowl, and upland game birds. An astounding 1,708 animals from Alberta have qualified for the Boone and Crockett Club’s (B&C) record book. The fact that 749 of these entries are animals taken since 2000 is a testament to the quality of wildlife available in our province.

The diverse terrain in Alberta allows for hunting styles suited to each individual hunter. Whether you are looking to experience the high peaks of the Rockies, the vast expanse of the prairies or the majestic boreal forest, Alberta’s outfitters have a hunt for you. APOS members operate an array of accommodation options with everything from cozy lodges to backcountry tenting. There’s so much to see and do here in Alberta, one week simply won’t be enough: you’ll want to take your time, explore what Alberta has to offer for guests of all ages, and share your experiences here with your family and friends.

My name is Charles Beauchamp owner operator. Of Birch Mountain Outfitter. I started hunting at the age of 12. With my dad’s friends that were outfitters hunting Moose on river trips or fly out to camps. This when I fell in love with the wilderness trips and going into remote areas to hunt. In 1978 I became a licensed hunting guide. I worked for other hunting outfitters till 1992.

In 1992 I became an Outfitter in the North of Alberta the Fort McMurray area where I live. Fort McMurray is located 200 km north of any farmland. The areas that I hunt are very remote and is a vast wilderness. To do this kind of business you have to have a love for the wilderness and be devoted to doing a lot of work in the wilderness.

It takes many hours of background work for very hour hunted from cutting trails and building camp and per baiting bears. And organizing the equipment and food.

With past clients commenting that I run a 5-star bush hotel. I have clients from Germany, Austria, Denmark, USA and now China. We have home cooked meals in all camps. And warm places to sleep. Good food, Good Camps and Good Hunting.

Spring Black Bear Hunting is done from one main camp. With Black Bear baits with High seats in a radius of 60 km of camp. The Black Bear population is Very High. It is not if you will shoot a Black Bear but how Big of a Black Bear you will get.

Moose Hunting is done in two main areas with small spike camp in in the area close to lakes that hold the Moose in those areas. The client will move between the spike camps. To give each Hunter the best possibility of shooting a Trophy Bull Moose.

Bison Hunting is done when in late fall and winter. This is when the Bison have the best Fur. The camp is in the area of the Bison and it is a spot and stock hunt. These are Wild Bison and do not know what a fence is.

We are Driftwood Valley Outfitters. We have been operating since 1987, as a family run business, in the north of British Columbia, Canada.

The diverse landscape that we enjoy has many beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers and an abundance of wildlife. High in the alpine is where the goats reside along with some high-country black bears. The green spaces in the spring and the huckleberry covered hillsides in the fall are where the black bears reside. The lake & river country is where the moose spent most of the year feeding on aspen, willow and water plants. The grizzly bears and wolves roam in all these different habitats and utilize any opportunity that presents itself.

The mountain goat hunt is spent in the high alpine where we enjoy the majestic views during the late summer and into the fall. There are a few different ways to hunt goats with various methods of accommodation. For the adventurous the backpack tent hunt is the way to go, exciting & challenging from beginning to end, wandering the mountains with a light camp. For the hunter who prefers the comforts of a cabin we have a base camp high up on an alpine lake. Mountain goat hunts are never easy, but the alpine lake provides a good place to recover.

The Black Bear hunt takes place in the spring just as the clover and dandelions starts to grow on the side roads and in the open areas. This provides the optimal opportunities to see the bears as they come out of hibernation looking for greens. The method of hunting here is spot-and-stalk from the vehicle or walking the bush roads or glassing the hillsides. The Moose hunt is most productive during the rut, right in the middle of the fall season. Waking up to frost covered meadows the crisp morning air lets you really enjoy the Canadian wilderness. Here sitting in clearings; glassing and calling or from a lake shore is the most assured approach to hunt.

Our trapline adventures take place amid the Canadian winters. You get to stay in a little trapper cabin on the trapline in the bush. The activities include accompanying the licensed trapper; helping build sets and traps and checking the trapline every day for bounty.

No matter what option you decide upon the experience will be unforgettable. The memories made in the Canadian wilderness are one of a kind.

In the late 1970’s Great White Holdings was founded by Lloyd McMahon with the firm belief that Alberta was home to the best trophy whitetail and waterfowl hunting in the world. Many years later the same belief holds true and has been confirmed by the number of successful hunts, huge trophies and return clients.

Over the years our operation has expanded to include mule deer, black bear, Western Canadian moose, Alaska Yukon moose, Barren ground caribou, grizzly bear and predatory K9 hunts. Great White is a family owned and operated business.

It is currently run by Lloyd and his son, Jon McMahon. Both Lloyd & Jon are full time professional outfitters and guides, avid hunters, fishermen and outdoors men.

Lloyd & Jon pride themselves in offering the best locations in North America to hunt. Great White’s lodges have been strategically placed across the province and Alaska in the best areas for quality trophies and large numbers of game.

The lodges offer comfortable accommodations, pleasant staff and great home cooked meals. With an average of 80% return clients each year, hunting dates book quickly.

I have owned my Alberta outfitting business for over 28 years. At North Star Outfitting we personally guide whitetail deer hunts, mule deer hunts, black bear hunts, moose hunts and waterfowl hunts. When you book a hunt with us you will be accompanied by a professional hunter who is focused on the specific species you are hunting. We know what it takes to make your hunt successful and enjoyable.

Bear hunts

We have been providing black bear hunts in Alberta for over 28 years. Hunt big bruin blacks and colored bears in the spring and fall, no bugs, 5 star lodge, eat like a king and sleep like a rock - that’s what you can expect when you come black bear hunting with North Star Outfitters! Our fall black bear hunts are spot & stalk only. We hunt them in the corn fields and oat fields in September and October.

I own 90% of the permits therefore I hold the key to managing the black bear hunting in this area. I have 50% color phase bears with 25% harvested being colored phased bears over 6 foot and 25% of the black bears harvested are over 7ft with 20” plus skulls. During the spring hunts, you will see between 8-12 bears in a evening and in a full week you will see up towards of 40-50 bears. Our spring bear hunts are over bait which allows you to size the bear more efficiently. Fall bear hunts may be added to our early season deer, moose hunts and waterfowl hunts.

Moose Hunts

Our hunting area is about 500,000 acres of farmland and boreal forest. The area we hunt makes this a relatively easy hunt and not physically challenging.

Moose rut hunt for archery hunters only.

The moose are very active this time of year and respond very well to cow calls. The larger bulls are usually taken on this hunt averaging 40 inches. We take a minimum number of hunters per season during this time to keep success rates very high. Our rut moose hunt can also be combined with our fall black bear hunts for bow hunters.

November post-rut moose hunts are for rifle hunters only.

This is a great time to hunt Alberta moose. After the rut is over the bulls are more social, often seen in bachelor groups. Here we are hunting a lot of the farmland, in the canola and alfalfa fields. We see between 5 to 10 moose per day, cows, calves and bulls, with an average bull of 40 inch. November moose hunt can be combined with a whitetail deer rut hunt for old mature bucks.

North River Outfitting is a small, family-run outfitting business operated by Ron Nemetchek and Maria Origoni. That family feel is extended to our guides, staff and our hunters. When you join us on a hunt in this spectacular and remote part of British Columbia, you will feel at home and welcomed into our hunting family. That same care, hard work and attention to detail goes into everything we do.

This is Ron’s 38th year in the outfitting business. In addition to starting his own business, Ron has guided big game hunts all over North America, including Alaska. Ron has been flying since he was 18 and his experience as a pilot makes our operation very unique in British Columbia. From our remote main lodge, Ron can shuttle small loads into even more remote locations, setting up camps in places that would be unfeasible for anyone else.

Maria Origoni joined the North River Outfitting team more than 10 years ago. Having run her own business in Alberta, Maria has brought her excellent organizational strengths and focus on customer service to the outfitting business. Additionally, Maria is an excellent cook! Maria is from Switzerland and she speaks English, Swiss, German and Italian.

Together, Ron and Maria are proud of the excellent wilderness experience they offer to their clients in Alberta and British Columbia. Their tireless work, attention to detail and client-oriented approach are why so many hunters return each year. At North River Outfitting, we offer hunts of unmatched quality. We boast outstanding success in our harvest. Much of that success has to do with the area we are blessed to hunt. But a great deal of our success comes in how we manage it. We take far fewer hunters than this area can support. There’s a good chance that when we fly you into a remote camp for your hunt, that area hasn’t been hunted in years. Our hunting area is massive, it’s remote, and it is game-rich.

Our British Columbia hunts offer the ultimate in a wilderness experience. We hunt the most remote part of B.C. at the far northern end of the province. From our main lodge, you will fly to your remote hunting location. There’s no messing around with horses or long days in the saddle. In a 20-minute flight, you’ll be in an area that is so remote, the animals you see may never have encountered another human.

This is the ultimate wilderness hunt. We have the success and the trophy quality to prove it. Nowhere else will you find such quality moose, stone sheep, mountain goat, mountain caribou and grizzly all in the same area and without any hunting pressure.

North River Outfitters is also specialized to make you and your family discover the rich and spectacular wilderness in this remote part of British Columbia. Discover the great outdoors, wildlife and wonders of the nature and make memories of a life time with your family.

Wilderness moose hunts in Alberta, Canada

We offer top quality moose hunts in Alberta’s most remote, untouched wilderness on the edge of the rocky mountains with little hunting pressure. If you want a great chance at a 5O” bull, this hunts for you! Our all-inclusive moose hunts are during the rut in late September and early October. We hunt by calling the big bulls in close. To have a moose come to a call is one of the most exciting moments you can ever have hunting. The moose in our area can grow over 60” and can be very spectacular with long, wide paddles, and big fronts! SaskAdrenaline Outfitters have taken multiple moose in this area that have exceeded the Boone and Crockett minimum!

Peak Of The Rut Moose Hunt

These general season moose tags come into effect the day after archery season ends. These tags are very limited and give you the opportunity to hunt the peak of the rut with any weapon, and the temperatures falling below freezing. This is the very best time to hunt these incredible animals with plenty of bull moose seen and heard during the course of your hunt. A 50” bull is very attainable at this time and with only three permits a year we try to target some big bulls! This combo hunt includes seven days of fully guided moose, whitetail, mule deer and wolf hunting, wall tent accommodations, meals, plus trophy preparation.

Archery Moose Hunt

The only thing more exciting than hunting giant bull moose in the rut, is doing it with nothing but the old stick and string! Moose hunting at this time of the year can sometimes be the most productive when the bulls are just starting to search for cows. A lone bull is more susceptible to come into a cow call than one that has already found a mate and depending on the mood he’s in you may get quite the show! Generally your best times to hunt are early morning and just before dark but if you get some cooler weather especially mixed with some precipitation the hunting can be incredible all day. This combo hunt includes seven days of fully guided moose, whitetail, mule deer and wolf hunting, wall tent accommodations, meals, plus trophy preparation.

Accommodations put you right in their backyard

We take a lot of pride in our camps and make sure you are kept comfortable while enjoying the wilderness experience. Our camps are kept neat, clean, and organized with generator power complete with lights, plugins, and a few electronic comforts of home. Each tent has cots and a wood stove with a well-stocked wood pile. Bring a nice warm sleeping bag, as nights may get down into the ‘teens! While at camp we make sure you are well fed, warm, and dry. Our camps are set up right in the area of the animals we are hunting. Camp is off the beaten path but easily accessible.

Originally constructed of native logs in 1980, Winefred Lake Lodge started as Alberta’s first fly-in fishing lodge. In the mid to late 1980’s, a primitive trail from Lac La Biche was constructed utilizing trails and right-of-ways created by Alberta’s Oil & Gas and Forestry industries, now making Winefred Lake Lodge a remote drive-in facility.

Winefred Lake Lodge is now a family operated business operated by father and son, Jon & LLoyd McMahon, and is still well regarded for its spectacular fishing. Guests can enjoy everything from “do it yourself” day trips on Winefred lake to week long fully guided adventures. While initially coming to fish and/or enjoy the outdoors, after a few days it is not uncommon to find our guests reading a good book on our expansive deck, telling stories around a campfire, viewing the plentiful game, or simply relaxing in our outdoor hot-tub.

While Winefred Lake boasts some of the finest trophy fishing in Alberta, consistently producing large Northern Pike and Walleye, they also offer pristine wilderness hunting & viewing. Surrounded by miles of Boreal forest that is home to the best trophy black bear and Western Canadian moose and deer hunting Canada has to offer.

Management & staff of Winefred Lake Lodge pledge to offer their guests the best outdoor experience in Alberta. Whether you’re a seasoned outdoor enthusiast with a passion for world-class fishing, an avid hunter or if you’re just looking for some time away from your hectic lifestyle, Winefred Lake Lodge is an ideal location to relax and enjoy a true Alberta wilderness experience.

WildHunting in Turkey is owned and managed by the Ekenler Family and currently run by two brothers, Kürşat and Temir. They are both extremely keen young hunters and have hunted extensively throughout Turkey and abroad. The Ekenler family has been landowners in Tarsus, Cukurova area for more than 300 years. Hunting is a family tradition, proudly passed from father to son and finally to us. We have always had a passion for the wild; This has been supported by their father who took Temir and Kürşat with him to many hunts all over the world. With some of the world’s finest species on our doorstep, we have naturally concentrated on big game hunting. WildHunting offers a total of 6 speacies of big game, which are natively found only on Turkish hunting land, this makes the hunting unique!

Our family has controlled the shooting in large areas of the Taurus Mountains for generations. We therefore operate as a private family hunting estate, rather than an agent buying from different concessions all over the region. As a result, we have controlled, conserved and developed our areas in a manner that we believe to be unique in the whole country. This approach is key to our way of maintaining the highest standards in everything we do.

Anatolian Bezoar Ibex: is a very popular big game of our mountains and has a very special reputation amongst hunters from around the World and a very challenging and special hunt for us. We have managed to protect and control the game by careful selective shooting and are proud to say that we have some of Turkey’s finest trophy Ibex hunting – with trophies that most can only dream about. We have averaged 44’’(110cm) over the past hunting years and harvest more than a few trophies between 48’’ – 52’’(120-130cm).

We have also been living this dream of ethical, sporting hunting, conserving both the game and our wonderful natural environment, for ourselves, our clients and our guests, now and in the future.

Anatolian Wild Boar: is the most common big game and a very exciting hunt for our hunting guests; since Turkey produces the biggest boars in the World with body size exceeding 200-250kg and tusks measuring between 24-30cm. We have been organizing and carrying out hunts for our guests, with a very experienced and trained team for over 20 years.

We do not over promise, over sell or over hunt. Our family reputation is far too important for that. This experience, applied to the management of our home estates, equips us to provide you with the hunting trip of a lifetime.

OUR EXTENSIVE WORLDWIDE HUNTING EXPERIENCE MEANS THAT; WE SEE THE TRIP FROM A CLIENTS EYES, WHICH WE THINK IS VITAL!

Please visit our website and write Temir or Kursat an e-mail to start exploring your next hunting adventure with WildHunting in TURKEY!

WILDHUNTING IN ASIA

The Ekenler Brothers started their CENTRAL ASIAN outfitting hunting operation few years ago due to very high demand from their clients and friends. After many years of extensive researching and countless hours of field work, they managed to partner up with the best operators in CENTRAL ASIA, which in result has created exceptionally high quality hunting trips to be among the finest in CENTRAL ASIA.

Our friends and clients prefer to hunt with us for the following reasons:

*Instead of dealing with foreign operators or western agents, they book with someone they know well and fully trust.

*Since most CENTRAL ASIAN countries are Turkic, we have better understanding of their culture (Turks emigrated from Central Asia to Anatolia about thousand years ago)

*We personally accompany and guide all our hunters on these hunts.

*We strive to give the same level of service and hunting experience that we provide in Turkey.

The countries in Asia that we outfit hunts in are as follows:  Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and Pakistan

We look forward to taking you to the best hunting destinations in Asia that offer the best quality hunting experiences.

THE BRAZIL’S AMAZONIA

The largest rainforest in the world, one of the world’s largest ecosystems, and contains one of the most diverse arrays of species on Earth. It is home to over 40,000 species of plants, 3,800 birds, and 2,500 of fish, the latter being more than is found in the entire Atlantic Ocean. The region is also home to the most incredible river in terms of drainage and discharge. This unique area was created millions of years ago when the Amazon River changed direction from west to east during the Eocene period.

The giant country has everything from enormous red rock canyons, thundering waterfalls, carefree powdery white-sand beaches, and dramatic, pristine rain forests to metropolises that pulse with rhythm and every modern convenience.

Brazil’s attractions range from enchanting, frozen-in-time colonial towns to world-class modern architecture. Add the legendary biodiversity that Brazil is famous for, and you start to understand its universal appeal. Brazils’ diverse ecosystems boast the greatest collection of plant and animal species found anywhere on Earth.

Brazilians’ passion is also justifiably world-famous. Whether dancing a sultry, hip-shaking Samba, a wildly twirling carimbo, or swaying to a mellow reggae classic, they are typically found celebrating what it means to be alive! Food, music, and fun times with family and friends are not just a nice-to-have, relegated to the weekend—they are indeed a national priority. Manaus, founded in 1669, is the capital of the state of Amazonas. It is found at the confluence of the Negro and Solimoes Rivers, which join to form the vast and ever-changing Amazon River. It is home to over 1.9 million proud Brazilians. Access is primarily through boats or airplanes. Manaus’s isolation in the heart of the Amazon rainforest has helped preserve its significant natural and cultural influences. As the hub of tourism for the rivers, it is the main entrance to visit the fantastic flora and fauna of the mighty Amazon.

The main economic engine is industry, although many cultural sites such as the grand cathedral and beautiful opera house harken back to its’ rubber-boom days, which helped it earn its nickname of the “Paris of the Tropics.” Many wealthy European families settled in Manaus and brought their love of sophisticated art, architecture, and culture with them.  The city was the only northern city in Brazil proudly hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 RIO Olympics Games.

Who wouldn’t want to experience this wealth of natural and cultural riches?

We look forward to hosting you soon and introducing you to one of the most sensory-rich, pleasure-filled, historically fascinating places on the planet.

Fishing the legendary Skeleton Coast

Set in the magical town of Henties Baai, on the edge of the Namib Desert, Fisherman’s Guesthouse welcomes fishermen and tourists alike. The lodge is the ultimate destination from which to experience the shore angling adventure of a lifetime. This beautiful lodge offers unforgettable accommodation a mere 200 metres from the beach. Listen to the sea, enjoy fresh air and cool evenings. Experience the different recipes for the catch of the day, accompanied by a glass of local wine. The nine comfortable rooms promise a good night’s sleep before the big fishing day. Louis Fenaux, our professional fisherman, will take you out on an unforgettable angling adventure. The once-in-a-lifetime experience is to catch a bronze copper shark (all the way up to 260 kg) from the sandy beach. You do not need to be an expert though, but let’s just say that the size of your shark will be determined by your patience and wisdom during this fight and not by strength or technique. Once the shark has been hooked, the pro will guide you on how to haul the catch in.

If you want to change to edible fish for a day, you can catch big cobs as well as some locals, such as steenbras, galjoen or snoek. For the youngsters, the smaller sharks such as spotted gully shark are a good initiation before tackling the real stuff. Other activities our team performs are desert tours in 4x4, dune races on quads or shopping in Swakopmund and its harbour Walvis Baai.

Fishing the mighty Zambezi and the mysterious Okavango

There are different ways to discover the unspoiled beauty of the Caprivi strip, locked-in between the Okavango and Zambezi rivers. They provide the perfect backdrop for some of the most unforgettable fishing experiences imaginable. We elected to build a lodge along the Okavango near Popa Falls. The fishing takes place up- or downstream from the lodge, guided by an experienced fisherman in a small but safe outboard boat. The main attraction is obviously the tigerfish; people travel the world just to fight this prehistoric-looking fish. Other species are different sorts of bream or buddle fish, and the area is also home to two rare fish species: the broadhead catfish and occelated spinyeel.

Non-fishing activities include game drives into the Mgango game reserve or Caprivi National Park and boat trips on the river to view hippos and crocodiles.

In contrast, the Zambezi has a lot more people living along its shores. A few years ago, we started to charter a houseboat in order to organise our fishing trips onto the river from this base. Experience taught us that the houseboat provided flexibility to move up and downstream, depending on fish density. Our success rate also went up tremendously. Although houseboat life is quite a different experience, all our guests just love it.

FISHING

Many fly fishermen travel the world in search of opportunities to catch big wild trout. While this search might take them all over the globe, New Zealand is one of the rare places where an array of fly fishing experiences are available in an easy-to-access, California-sized chunk of land.

Flying over a breathtaking saddle or pass in the mountains, and then up or down a river to a landing spot is always highly memorable. After you get dropped off and the “bird” leaves, a notable silence will descend, reminding you that you are in the middle of nowhere and the only sounds of the day will be the movement of water, the breeze in the trees, and the splash of a leaping fish miraculously attached to your line. By 5 or 6pm or whatever time you arranged, the distant sound of the helicopter begins to get louder and it finds you a few miles upstream, standing on a gravel bar with lots of room for a safe landing, and you’ll shortly be flying back to dinner with a few stories to share.

Sparkling streams, staggering landscapes - angling in New Zealand is equal parts challenging and rewarding, placing you firmly at one with nature. Helicopter fishing trips offer a wide variety of exclusive opportunities off the beaten track. Our skilful pilots will deposit you deep inland or up in the mountains, stalking some of the biggest trout in the country. Many rivers overshadowed by their larger counterparts, that would take days to walk to, fly mostly under the radar – you could be the first to fish their untouched waters all season. This is the sort of extraordinary experience that makes happy anglers return year after year to visit Venator. The lodge, guides, and helicopter company all work together to make sure that the rivers get well rested between visits to help ensure great expeditions.

Here, you can base yourself our luxury lodge Cardrona Terraces, taking off right in front of your room and being whisked back in time for a sumptuous dinner. The beauty of New Zealand is that you’re only ever a short drive or flight away from countless other spectacular sights and activities. A day of fishing is easily followed by a day of golfing, kayaking, hiking, or wining and dining.

The Central African Republic is undoubtedly one of Africa’s most famous big game hunting countries. It is home to two of the continent’s most iconic antelope species: Derby’s eland in the savannah and the bongo in the forest. Their hunt, a unique quest in the life of an African hunter, is a real challenge.

Despite many years of unrest in the country, National Safari has not ceased its hunting activity in the field. Their territory completely in the East of the country offers by its location and its remoteness a natural protection to the hunters wishing to live an extraordinary adventure. The hunting area of more than 1,000,000 Ha is bordered by the Vovodo river and is made up of a multitude of different biotopes: savannah, wooded plateaus, large mountains and especially the mythical Central African ‘bakos’, forest galleries rich in unbelievable fauna. National Safari will immerse its hunters in the atmosphere of the great safaris of yesteryear where many areas of the territory have not yet been trodden by man. From a base camp along the river, hunters will be able to set off on a flying expedition in search of emblematic and mythical species: bongo, giant forest hog, yellow-backed duiker, leopard, savannah buffalo, Derby eland, roan, bush pig. Come with us and experience the last great African adventures.

La Centrafrique est sans conteste l’un des pays d’Afrique de grande chasse les plus réputés. Il héberge deux espèces d’antilopes parmi les plus emblématiques de ce continent : l’éland de Derby en savane et le bongo en forêt. Leur chasse, quête unique dans la vie d’un chasseur africain, relève d’un véritable défi.

Malgré de nombreuses années de troubles dans le pays, National Safari n’a pas cessé son activité de chasse sur le terrain. Leur territoire complètement à l’Est du pays offre par sa situation et son éloignement une protection naturelle aux chasseurs désireux de vivre une aventure hors norme. La zone de chasse de plus de 1.000.000Ha est bordé par la rivière Vovodo et est composé d’une multitude de biotopes différents : savane, plateaux arborés, grandes montagnes et surtout les mythiques ‘bakos’ centrafricains, galeries forestières riches d’une faune incroyable. National Safari plongera ses chasseurs dans l’ambiance des grands safaris d’antan où de nombreuses zones du territoire n’ont pas encore été foulées par l’homme. A partir d’un camp de base le long de la rivière, les chasseurs pourront partir en expédition volante à la recherche d’espèces emblématiques et mythiques : bongo, hylochère, céphalophe à dos jaune, léopard, buffle de savane, éland de Derby, hippotrague rouan, potamochère. Venez vivre les dernières grandes aventures africaines.

Namibia has the largest diversity of biotopes in all of Africa, ranging from deserts such as the Kalahari and the world’s oldest, the Namib Desert, to red-coloured dunes (Sossusvlei) and sandy beaches along the Skeleton Coast or then again the subtropical marshes between the Okavango and the Zambezi.

Twenty years of experience have taught us that all our guests like to discover all the different parts of this magical country, either by hunting or fishing in the different places. Therefore we offer you two hunting and two fishing destinations which we own or operate. Several combinations are possible, depending on the season, your availability and your mode of transport, all of which we would be more than happy to study together with you.

Hunting the grandiose Etosha area and the massive Damaraland

The southern border of Etosha National Park is well-known to hunters for its great variety of plains game. Our privately owned land covers a diverse landscape consisting of Mopani forests, dry river beds, acacia woodlands, plains, mountains, valleys and pans.

You can hunt exceptional trophies and experience the magic of real hunting. Gold medals can be obtained for gemsbok, kudu and mountain zebra. The Damara dik-dik and the black-faced impala are even exclusive to this area. Leopards and cheetahs are considered the jewels of Etosha.

We have three types of accommodations, each giving you different experiences on your safari. One way is using our African safari lodge with all the five-star amenities typical to the Southern African triangle and with an uninterrupted view of the surrounding valleys and plains. For a more typical hunting atmosphere, we use a camp with several thatched rondawels, decorated with local artwork and en suite bathrooms. For those nostalgic for an ‘Out of Africa’ atmosphere, we offer a live version in the tented camp where as the night falls the bush comes alive.

More to the west lies the Damaraland concession. As no fixed settlements are allowed, we use our 4x4 and tents to set up flycamps in a moonlike environment.

All meals are served around a crackling fire under the clear African sky or under thatch in the central lapa, with unique game dishes. On the day you wish to take a rest from hunting, it is possible to go for a game drive in Etosha National Park or simply relax around the swimming pool and the spa of the main lodge.

Hunting the Kalahari dunes and Namib Desert

South of Windhoek we own two hunting territories, each very representative of their specific biotopes. The Kalahari property features a combination of 74 sequential red sand dunes with the equivalent number of valleys stretching each over a kilometre wide. It is an amazing sensation to hunt in such countryside, as each dune hides a new spectacle of animals grazing in the next valleys.

Here you can hunt mostly grazers such as springbok, gemsbok and wildebeest, all medal quality. Again accommodation can be provided in three different types of camps: the luxurious safari lodge with five-star facilities such as pool, spa and restaurant; the comfortable bungalow of the hunting camp with its magic lapa and boma; or finally, real bush life in a tented camp.

A few hours eastwards, towards the Botswana border, we have a desert property which again is a totally different view from the Kalahari. Montana like grass plains contrast with the red hills which seem imported from Arizona. Hunting tactics change 100% since here the hunter and the animals have little space to hide. Cheetah, leopard and hyena are abundant in this area. The accommodation is in a typical thatched lodge uniquely decorated in a hunting atmosphere. All game here is natural resident game.

What’s the best season for hunting?

There is no good, better or best time. There is only a period that is less comfortable because of high temperatures and a period less favourable to hunting.

Therefore, we suggest:

Etosha region: March till October

Damara land: June till September

Kalahari: April till October

Namib Desert: April till September

Mylpaal is a unique hunting destination, thanks to its unparalleled combination of genuine African bush spirit and western standards of luxury, safety and particular pride in organization.

Mylpaal means “important stage” in Afrikaans, and, being a region of natural transhumance and a true biodiversity sanctuary, your stay here will undoubtedly remain engraved in your heart as one of the most significant stages in your life.

Our luxury hunting lodge is situated between two of the most famous wildlife places in the world: Etosha National Park and the Okavango region. The fertile floodplains and lush countryside here feel like a mirage after the dry air and dusty plains of southern Namibia, making it ideal for wildlife spotting and bird watching.

The private area of Mylpaal covers 10,000 hectares and is home to 25 game species. On the border of Bushmenland and Caprivi, our private reserve is a stunning example of the natural, untouched areas and landscapes so desired by adventure enthusiasts.

Your hunting experience

Along with its prime location, consummately professional game management makes Mylpaal a game-rich hunting paradise for rifle as well as bow hunters. Thanks to our sustainable hunting practices and our conservation work, you will find a large number of old trophy animals. We welcome a maximum of 20 hunters a year in order to ensure a low hunting pressure and the selection of mature trophies. The result has been astonishing: so far we have only taken medal class, SCI or Roland Ward record trophies.

Our preferred hunting method is stalking. Depending on the quarry species and physical abilities of the hunter, however, we also hunt from blinds and tree stands. We have brand new rifles with high quality scopes available for hire, should you wish to borrow a firearm. Every one of our professional hunters is not only a Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) member, but most importantly an avid hunter who is always paying attention to detail.

Our focus lies on plains game hunting, but we also offer big game hunts in the Caprivi region in cooperation with first class big game organizations.

SAFARIA TANZANIA

Faithful to its principles SAFARIA, is dedicated to organize custom-made trips in order to allow everybody to get closer to their dreams. Key words for Safaria camp and organization will be always Refinement, charm and Authenticity.

Uganda is located on the East African Plateau, averaging about 1,100 meters (3,600 feet) above sea level, which slopes steadily downwards to the Sudanese Plain to the North. Much of the South is poorly drained, while the center is dominated by Lake Kyoga and surrounding marshy areas.

Hunting Season

Our hunting season is from January throughout to December. It rains all year round (which is why the country is so lush) with slightly more rain on average in May/June and October/November. However, the rainfall varies from year-to-year. Some species move with the rain, but we will do our best to make every safari a success. The best time to hunt Buffalo is during the months of December to end of June. After that the grass is high and hunting buffalo becomes challenging. All other species can be hunted year-round.

Kafu River Basin (KA)

The Kafu River Basin stretches along Lake Kyoga, Kafu & Mayanja Rivers and covers the six districts of Nakaseke, Nakasongola, Kiboga, Kyankwanzi, Kiryandongo and Masindi covering about 420,000 hectares. The landscape in Kafu consists mainly of Papyrus swamps and dense bush thickets making it a prime hunting ground for the East African Sitatunga, East African Bush Duiker, Eastern Bohor Reedbuck, Nile Bushbuck East African, Uganda Defassa Waterbuck, Leopard, Common Oribi and Bush Pig.

We hunt in Kafu from January to December. This is the best concession for big Sitatunga. Our average horn length on Sitatunga is 25 inches with quite a few bulls taken in the 29 to 31.5-inch range over the years.

Aswa Lolim Ranches (AL)

The former Aswa-Lolim Wildlife Reserve was degazetted under Idi Amin in the 70s. It covers the sub-counties of Purongo, Alero, Anaka and Koch-Goma. Although many commercial farmers have settled in this prime hunting ground, it is still realistic to get Nile Buffalo, Uganda Kob, Hartebeest, Waterbuck, Oribi and warthog. Aswa-Lolim lies on the eastern side of the Nile. It covers 45,000 hectares and share a 110 km direct border with Murchison Falls National Park in the South and about 78 km with the Nile in the West. The landscape is dominated by light rolling grass hills with palm trees, small valleys with creeks and light forest. Near the river you find dense forests and large stretches of papyrus swamps. We hunt in Aswa-Lolim from January to end of April/May. The Sitatunga hunting takes place year-round.

ACCOMMODATION IN KAMPALA AND IN THE FIELD

Upon arrival at Entebbe Airport (Airport Code: EBB) and departure, depending on your flight schedule, you will be accommodated in a good three-star hotel in Kampala. Our staff picks you up at the airport and drops you off. Your lodging in the field will be either in traditional East African safari tents (Kafu Blocks & Karamoja) or traditional grass thatched tented bungalows (Mayanja Lodge) serviced for by trained staff.

Our field cooks provide three solid meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) per day. The cooking in our restaurant samples different kitchens such as Indian, African, German, Italian and Chinese. All our camps & lodges are semi-permanent structures equipped with 24/7 power supply and satellite internet. The internet can only be used for emails and Skype calls.

La Zenaida, Córdoba, Argentina

High volume dove shooting

La Zenaida is located 50 meters away from one of the largest and most compact dove roosts in Argentina and right on a dove flyway; it is just the perfect place for a thrilling high-volume shooting experience with an experienced team that runs a flawless operation.

Decorated in the traditional Patagonian and Northern Argentinean style, La Zenaida offers all modern amenities: cosy en-suite bedrooms, a comfortable living-room with a fully stocked complimentary bar, a large dining room, a large outdoor hot tub and a great recreation area with a wonderful view of the green fields and mountain lions walking around occasionally.

The Shooting

Córdoba is considered the dove shooting capital of the world. The 100 square mile radius (60 km) around the lodge is annually inhabited by over 30 million doves.

The lodge has around 25 shooting fields, which are at walking distance within our own property, or at a short drive through the region’s rich farmland. This allows for more time to relax and enjoy yourself, take a nap in between hunts, refresh in our swimming pool during the hot summer days or the outdoor hot tub in cooler days and why not take a pleasant massage for your sore shoulders and limbs!

The overwhelming amount of birds flying over the head restlessly all day long ensures great opportunities for non-stop shooting suitable for all skill levels. Beginners have an unparalleled chance for improving their shooting skills aiming at low flying doves, while more experienced shooters find higher and faster targets quite a challenge. An average hunter may expect to shoot between 2 to 4 cases a day…and there’s No Bag Limit!

With the shooting fields at walking distance from the lodge, dove shooting will never be the same. You will shoot more and travel less.

The present facilities, were built on the remains of an old stone and wood structure that dates back to 1900. This was done with the intent of preserving the charm and history of the place.

There are 6 suites available in a colonial style including stone, handcrafted bricks and wood, apart from the social area where you will find a large living room with a fireplace, a dining area, an indoor grill, and a wine cellar among other things. There are comfortable suites available, each with its own fireplace and dressing room. And most important of all, every room is in front of the panoramic dinning room, the huge terraces and the swimming pool. It offers spectacular views of the hills surrounding the main house.

The rusticity in the house is contrasted by certain modern touches like electric energy, digital telephony, internet connection and satellite television.

Regarding gastronomy, you will have available a menu particularly elaborated by the preparation of game meats, combined with garden vegetables and other home—made accompaniments. Pasta, bread and preserves are all handcrafted at Rincón de los Matreros. And since a good meal calls for a good wine, you will be able to select it directly at the cellar, from a wide selection of top-level wines made in Uruguay... including the special editions made exclusively for Rincon de los Matreros.

TESTIMONIES

Thank you very much Mathieu and Vitor. We hunted a wild boar of 150kg and 22 cm of trophy. On the following day, we hunted a beautiful trophy of feral goat. Friendly atmosphere, excellent food and first class organization. Be sure I will return. Perhaps already the next year… Greetings, Mit Weidsmannsheil, Gicallino Rocco Aloise —Villach, Austria.

A beautiful place to enjoy with all the family. Very good weekend with special attention of all the “staff”. Beautiful animals and great hunting. Carlo Morandi, Julio Morandi, Felipe Morandi.

Friends of Rincon de los Matreros

The life is done of small and unforgettable moments that in this Rincon were one of these. And each person in this place insists to the maximum so that these small moments are the most pleasant as possible. We can just say “thank you very much”.

Giovanni Pacheco, Carlo Z., Guilherme G. de Oliveira.

After 10 years of obligatory shutdown in my cinegetic activities, by insistence of the mutual friends, I return, and for my luck in a wonderful place like this one. I hope to have the opportunity to return more often. Were here together, in an impeccable stay. We leave registered the satisfaction and joy with which we were welcomed. Besides, we were awarded with a magnificent wild boar: (27 cm of tusk) hunted by Alexandre Oltramazi; and two “professional” goats hunted by Fernando Comunello and Alexandre Fasoli. Finally, a deep gratefulness to Guima and all the friends who we left here, remains. Obs.: Another wild boar, hunted by Alexandre Fasoli. Until the next one!

Alexandre Fasoli, Fernando Comunello, Eduardo Guimarães and Alexandre Oltramazi.

In almost full moon… 11hrs, tired eyelids…A single male enters - What is Laurindo? - “Male” it is, but I do not see the tusks! I thought: Good, tomorrow we are leaving, then… fire! And I hunted the greater boar of my life. Carlinhos said: another like this, not even in 100 years. Oh God! Meanwhile, Carlinhos with Eduardo were grabbing with nails and knives Lucio’s wild boar… Great night! Great hunting! Hug. Jose Brugger

Moments like this, with friends, make this, our sport, a very special event. We spent wonderful days and had the chance to enjoy special and exciting hunts. Wonderful. Great hug. Dante Carraro

Mixed bag hunting

Veracruz is a cosy, thatched-roofed lodge with the most spectacular view, which makes a wonderful setting to spare and relax after enjoying the best shooting ever. The lodge offers 5 bedrooms with private bathrooms, and can accommodate 10 guests. While you are at the ranch, it is yours to enjoy, from the comfortable living room with its inviting fireplace, to the dining room offering beautiful views of open fields and the Parana River shore.

The Shooting

At Veracruz you can hunt different species of ducks depending on the time of the year, the rosy billed and whistling ducks being the most common, along with some teals.

Duck shooting features comfortable and well camouflaged blinds; quality specie-specific decoys and guides who will place you where you need to be to get the kind of duck hunting you’ve only dreamed of until now.

The shooting occurs on the shores of San Javier Rivers, over some of the hundreds of islands or over rice fields. We shoot twice a day, morning and evening, and there is plenty of time to relax at midday.

For morning hunts, our hunters depart from the lodge in the dark, but after a hearty breakfast. Depending on the time of the year and the behavior of the birds (scouted every day), the time to get to the blinds will be from 20 minutes to an hour, including car or boat ride.

Shooting over decoys starts at first light and continues until 10 am or after. Flocks of 20 or 30 ducks are not rare. Most days, duck hunters return to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before afternoon departure at about 3pm for evening duck hunts. Evening hunts last until dark.

Perdiz over dogs is a great choice to hunt. They are fast and challenging. Britain’s or German shorthair dogs hunt with us. Duck and perdiz shooting can be exchanged for Dove shooting, making the hunting diverse.

Dorado Fishing is a great and fun sport. The river scenery is phenomenal. We fish in shallow water with current. Lots of different fish can be caught like stingray and Piranhas. We will use bait or fly rods depending on your request. Catch and release is what we do.

In the heart of a magical environment, Veracruz offers a warm and cozy accommodation combined with the best of Argentina’s mixed bag hunting.

S’hail sparkles in its landmark sixth edition in 2022

The exceptional sixth edition of S’hail - The Katara International Hunting & Falcons Exhibition – left its indelible impression in the landmark year of FIFA World Cup Qatar.

S’hail 2022, hosted by Cultural Village Foundation Katara at its Wisdom Square, was held over six days (September 5 to September 2022 ,10) and emerged with another feather in the cap with its resounding success thereby underlining its leadership status in the region and globally.

Signifying Qatar’s generational cultural heritage and deep passion for falcon and hunting, the sixth edition of S’hail - distinct in its exhibition specializing in falcons, falconry products, modern hunting gadgets, hunting-related weapons, modified vehicles and caravans, accessories, and camping supplies - was represented by 180 major companies from all over the world amid an increasing demand from hunting and falconry enthusiasts.

S›hail 2022 also had the distinguished presence of Gulf companies from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates, with nearly 40 companies specializing in

weapons, rifles, hunting supplies, and hunting trips.

S›hail 2022 was graced by the esteemed visits of dignitaries including Their Excellencies the Ambassadors accredited to the State of Qatar, Ministers and Sheikhs, in addition to the large presence of media representatives.

Salem Mabkhout Al Marri, Director of Public Relations Department, Katara, and member of the Executive Committee of the S’hail Organizing Committee, applauded the grand success of the sixth edition of Katara International Hunting & Falcons Exhibition which has firmly established itself as the most prominent specialized exhibition in the world, especially in its organization, services, size, and the presence of major international companies.

He stressed that S’hail 2022 was distinct with its diverse cultural activities, especially the falcon auction - one of the most attractive events for falconers, hunting enthusiasts and the public.

Al Marri praised the important role of the local, Arab and international press and media in the success of S’hail 2022, acknowledging its contribution in broadening the exhibition’s horizon which was established in 2017

Over the years, S’hail’s aura and grandeur has only increased with each passing edition. The sixth edition in Qatar’s World Cup year was not only remarkable in terms of its size (which was larger by %20 in its total area exceeding 10,000sqm) but also in its uniqueness of falcons and variety of huntingrelated products.

The exhibition included heritage activities and accompanying cultural programs, besides lectures and seminars on preservation of falcons and environment, care of falcons and their breeding, as well a poetry evening in which senior Qatari poets participated. S’hail 2022 also saw a wide participation

of painting artists from within and outside Qatar.

S’hail’s falcon auction (now done electronically and which can be digitally accessed from anywhere in the world) continued to be a top draw. The highest bid through the six days of the exhibition reached QR977,000. S’hail 2022 also had on display “Muammar” falcon which is 25 years of age and among one of the oldest falcons. Named ‘Nomas’, this Peregrine falcon is 1997 born.

S’hail’s aesthetically designed pavilions and specially designed falcon hood also remained a big attraction.

The prize of QR20,000 for the The Most Beautiful Pavilion at S›hail 2022 went to Al Rahal (Land and Sea Equipment firm) of Qatar. The first prize for ‹The Most Beautiful Falcon Hood› of 3,000$ was won by Pepe Para Hoods from Spain.

The winners are decided based on the vote of the Organizing Committee of the Katara International Hunting & Falcons Exhibition.

The awards were conceptualized in 2018 with the aim of supporting craftsmanship and traditional industries, and as an encouragement to participants for innovative ideas and designs.

The many participants and exhibitors at S’hail 2022 expressed their big admiration on the development and expansion of S’hail and its organization.

Badr Mohammed Saab, Executive Director of Bader Al Emarat Hunting and Trips Equipment Company, said S’hail 2022 attracted a great turnout since its very start, stressing it is considered as the largest and the most important specialized exhibition - whether in terms of organization and services or the volume of sales and purchasing power it registers. Also in terms of its size and area making it a centre of attraction for distinguished international companies in the field to be a part of.

Ahmed Mahmoud Al-Khamis, from Thawab Hunting Equipment And Arms Maintenance Co., expressed his pleasure on the big success of S’hail 2022. He also welcomed the expanse and grandeur of S’hail, its flawless organization and the public turnout. Thawab Hunting has been attracting most of the patrons seeking hunting-related weapons since the first edition of the exhibition and in the 2022 edition, the company›s pavilion displayed state-of-the-art hunting guns presented for the first time, making huge sales.

Johnny Njeim, Director of Brescia Middle East (Lebanon), expressed his happiness on their third time participation in S’hail, noting that the sixth edition was characterized by a heavy turnout and an increase in sales volume, in addition to the launch of new products, stressing that the exhibition is constantly growing, expanding and developing annually in response to the wishes of the participating parties and the public. He stressed that S’hail is the best way to market the latest high-quality products in the field of hunting weapons and accessories.

Abdul Salam Al-Amiri from Tamreen Company also expressed his pleasure at being at S’hail 2022, expressing his admiration for the official and public attendance at the exhibition.

S’hail - Katara International Hunting & Falcons Exhibition - is one of the largest international exhibitions and a showcase of Qatar’s rich cultural heritage and legacy. S’hail aims to support commercial, cultural and sporting activities related to falcons and hunting, and to build reciprocal relations between amateurs and traders in a manner that benefits all - at local, regional, and international levels.

Experienced hunters usually need to go far to hunt big deer. This is often a long and troublesome trip, and sometimes accommodations are rough. As of this year, a new destination in France has opened, offering some of the biggest and most beautiful deer.

The Saint Michel property, in the Nièvre department, located between Beaune and Saint-Honoré-les-Bains, will welcome you to its magnificent park. You will stay in a fully renovated castle with all the comfort of a five-star hotel. Everything is done to perfection, be it the  rooms or the meals. The owner Antoine Feidt, himself a very experienced hunter who has travelled the world, will personally welcome you and make it possible for you to shoot one of his exceptional deer.

The deer are originally from Germany, and they were imported to France 10 years ago. They have been pampered and well taken care of in order to make this livestock so amazing today. They have been treated naturally and kept in the wild. Many stags have 30 points or more and go up to gold medals. For the first time, Antoine Feidt is opening this exceptional domain where he will, I am sure, prove the beauty and the quality of his deer. You will either hunt game from a hide on watchtowers or by stalking. The best calibres for hunting here are .300 Winchester, 9.3 x 62, etc.....

A French hunting permit or license is mandatory. You will be hunting with the owner, who will gladly explain the evolution of his livestock and his theories on genetics.

So take advantage of this unique opportunity to discover these unique deer, and should you shoot one of them, it will most certainly become one of the most admired pieces in your trophy room. Certains chasseurs expérimentés vont au bout du monde pour chasser de grands cerfs. L’avion et les transfers sont souvent très longs et éprouvants. Or, depuis cette année, une destination en France permet aux amateurs de trouver  de très grands cerfs, le domaine Saint Michel. Situé dans la Nièvre entre Beaune et Saint-Honoré-les-Bains, un château complètement rénové vous accueille sur un territoire magnifique, offrant un confort digne de 5 étoiles: chambres, suites, repas, tout est merveille et délices.

Antoine Feidt, le maître des lieux, lui-même chasseur hors pair, mettra tout en œuvre pour vous faire tirer un de ses plus beaux cerfs. La souche, venue d’Allemagne il y a plus de 10 ans, a porté ses fruits et la qualité et la beauté des cerfs est remarquable. Nourris tout à fait naturellement, ils valent le coup d’œil, plusieurs faisant plus de 30 cors, certains allants jusqu’à la médaille d’or.

Cette année, Antoine Feidt ouvre pour la première fois son domaine. La chasse se déroule uniquement à l’affût, sur de grands miradors ou au pirch. Les calibres recommandés sont: 300 Win - 9,3 x 62  - etc. Un permis français ou une licence est obligatoire. Vous chasserez avec Antoine Feidt, il se fera un plaisir de vous expliquer l’évolution de ses cervidés et sa théorie génétique en rapport avec son cheptel.

Profitez de cette occasion unique pour découvrir enfin de magnifiques cerfs...Nul doute que si vous venez en chasser un, il sera une des pièces maîtresses de votre trophy room.

Dorback Estate sits in the heart of Speyside in Scotland and in the Cairngorm National Park with a spectacular mountain backdrop where the high peaks and corries often hold snow into high summer. Extending to over 16,000 acres the Estate captures high ridges, corries and moors home to stags that can be heard roaring in Autumn and the iconic grouse then down to lower wooded ground besides the Dorback Burn where salmon spawn. Dorback has a rich hunting history and as a genuinely mixed sporting estate can offer rarely rivalled mixed sporting packages including walked up grouse on a wonderful and varied moor, challenging stalking on high ground and exhilarating low ground shooting amidst beautiful native woodland.

Dorback Estate benefits from the lifetime of experience gathered by our Estate Rangers, Bryce Coutts and Ian Crowson. Bryce and Ian are true custodians of this wild and beautiful part of Scotland and can offer world class sporting opportunities. We have hunters who have been returning to Dorback for over 40 years in order to relive the premium quality sporting experience on offer.

We shoot walked up grouse over the moor that extends over a large part of the Estate and this allows us to offer fresh ground where the grouse have been left undisturbed for many days. This provides for the very best quality shooting experience which can be enjoyed over pointers if preferred. On Dorback Estate we shoot a sustainable bag for the grouse stocks we have each season. We base a day on 2 brace of grouse per gun and provide the most wonderful experience. If we have more grouse available we will provide them and this season we were able to sustainably shoot bags of approximately 20 brace a day for teams of 4 to 6 guns. The moor is well equipped with various lunch huts and hill bothies, including the luxurious Fae Bothy which offers an exquisite resting spot for lunch or as a destination at the end the day with a welcoming wood burner and comfortable sofas. Fae Bothy is fully equipped to allow a chef to prepare a beautiful meal and with an impressive dining table can seat a full team of guns along with many family and friends.

Our low ground shoot has been meticulously developed and huge investment has been made in conservation measures to provide the optimum habitat for pheasants, partridge, duck and woodcock. The variety of woodland, farmland and terrain makes for a diverse and inspiring shooting experience. We can offer mixed driven shoots from 100 bird days upwards with lunch served in one of the estate’s luxury cottages or the Fae Bothy. We also offer walked up rough shooting incorporating some bespoke drives with a bag of 10 birds per gun which provides tremendous fun.

The estate also offers excellent stag stalking opportunities in October with hind stalking following the stag season which is offered at a day rate. On the lower altitude wooded ground there are roe deer stalking opportunities to offer further variety to a mixed sporting package.

At Dorback Estate we design the sporting package to suit our guest’s needs and time and time again our guests enjoy a most unforgettable experience.

Dorback Estate is also constantly engaging in projects to enhance the natural environment and follow organic farming or cultivation methods. So, on the Estate and you will find wild flower headlands, beehives, orchards, heritage Narragansett turkeys, chickens and polycrub vegetable gardens which all support the Estate’s concept of generating as wide a variety of local produce as possible.

DRUM, ELLON AND LAGGANDHU COTTAGE

We have three cottages, each fine examples of the attractive traditional stone and slate buildings found in Scotland, built in the 1800’s and now renovated and modernised to provide every comfort. Whilst being in this special Scottish Highland location, each cottage also has excellent wifi and a smart TV.

Laggandhu Cottage: This idyllic cottage with 3 double bedrooms offers the most charming and luxurious accommodation in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. With a spacious open plan kitchen/dining room with antique French country furniture, exposed beams and a beautifully tiled wood burning stove, along with a wonderful sitting room which has great Highland character and a wood burning stove, this is an exceptionally stylish and comfortable cottage.

Not only is the accommodation fantastic but you couldn’t ask for a more perfect location. The views from Laggandhu are incredible, boasting the beautiful Cairngorm Mountains or, closer to home, the native woodland with red squirrels and roe deer often spotted in the garden. This cottage offers the most wonderful stay in the Scottish Highlands.

Drum Cottage: A unique and truly special property that has been beautifully and luxuriously renovated to give you a memorable stay in this beautiful area. The ground floor of the house is one large open space with exposed oak beams, oak wall panelling, a feature spiral staircase and hand crafted kitchen with Caithness slate worktops. Open fires create a magical atmosphere to enjoy along with the views of the woodland and mountains. As with all Dorback properties, this house is wonderfully finished and furnished with great style and a French twist. Upstairs there are two sumptuous 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with power shower and large bath. The cottage is near the main sporting lodge Drum House in the heart of the Estate whilst they are both positioned such that they each retain their own privacy.

Ellon Cottage: A cosy and compact 2 bedroom property that has been renovated sympathetically to retain its traditional style with pine flooring downstairs. The kitchen combines modern facilities with retro and antique décor and is ideal to dwell in over a long meal whilst the sitting room has an antique feel with a wood burner and very comfortable and relaxing seating. With underfloor heating in the welcoming boot room and in the bathroom it is a cottage that will welcome you home after a day of outdoor adventure. A warning to the tallest of guests, Ellon Cottage has traditional coombed ceilings and if you are over 6 feet tall you need to mind your head! This cottage features a hottub with panoramic views to the mountains.

This beautiful area is renowned for its forests, wildlife, walking, hill climbing, stalking, fishing, mountain biking and of course its whisky distilleries so you will never be short of things to do.

Each or our cottages can be enjoyed on a self-catering basis whilst some guests prefer to bring a chef or arrange private catering services through our network of established and recommended caterers.

Fjelljakt is an organisation with great expertise in all aspects of hunting in the Swedish mountains. We have been active for about a decade and, ever since we started, our philosophy has been to provide top class hunting packages. Everyone who works with Fjelljakt is carefully selected and a master at what they do.

We are privileged to work in western Jämtland. The nature here is astounding, with open vistas that extend all the way to Norway. Jämtland is one of the last areas of real wilderness in Europe and we offer you the opportunity to explore it with us. We have chosen to focus on moose and game bird hunting, as our 16,500 hectares of hunting grounds have an almost unique game population.

Our Hunting Villa lies at the heart of our 15,000 hectares of hunting grounds and is the base for our hunts. The Hunting Villa was built in 1896. Medstugan Hunting Villa embodies a genuine sense of hunting traditions and hunters have stayed here since the turn of the last century. Over the years, Medstugan Hunting Villa has attracted both royalty and big game hunters from foreign lands. This beautiful heritage building is our starting point every morning, whether we leave on foot or by helicopter after breakfast.

MOOSE HUNTING, THE TRADITIONAL WAY

Our most exclusive hunting product is one-on-one hunting with a barking moose dog. You and a tracker/dog handler hunt alone over large areas, waiting for the dog to find the moose. When the dog “holds” the moose through its rhythmic barking, we start our cautious approach on an extremely watchful moose. There are few hunting methods that bring about such a rush of adrenaline. This package also includes “calling for moose” in the dawn to increase your chances of shooting the “big bull”. We also offer driven hunts for moose. We hunt using experienced trackers/dog handlers. Depending on the wind and weather, we can choose whether to hunt with the dogs leashed or unleashed. All drives are conducted in beautiful open mountain terrain.

GAME BIRD HUNTING

We offer ptarmigan hunts using pointing bird dogs. Hunting takes place on the open mountainsides or in the forests of mountain birch. This hunting method necessitates a great deal of walking in the mountains, but the breathtaking surroundings mean you soon forget that you are also getting a little bit of exercise. Ptarmigan hunting is very sociable, as you have time to chat during the day; it is only in bird situations that discipline and a cool head are necessary. All of our hunts require that you are used to spending time in the outdoors and that you are physically prepared for long walks and long days in the mountains.

OUR HUNTING LODGE

The Medstugan hunting lodge was built by Carl Fredrik Liljevalch in 1896-97, and was drawn by the architect Agi Lindegren; it is located at the heart of our 16,500 hectares and is the starting point for our hunts. Over the years, Medstugan has attracted both royalty and foreign big game hunters and there is a real sense of hunting tradition in Medstugan’s walls –hunters have stayed here for over a century and a trophy cabinet bears witness to how hunting was conducted in the early 1900s. In the morning, after breakfast, we depart from this from incredible piece of history either on foot or by helicopter.

Breakfast and dinner are eaten in one of our two dining rooms. The day’s hunting stories are best told around the fire in the drawing room, while the lodge’s sauna is wonderful for relaxing in after an exciting and demanding hunt.

A CULINARY EXPERIENCE

Moose, grouse, trout, reindeer, mushrooms and berries…  the list could be even longer, but this one describes the food sourced from our region. And not only are these fantastic ingredients that will take you on a culinary journey through our hunting grounds, this also means we can guarantee that only the best quality food makes it to your plate.

We believe that food and drink are extremely important parts of the overall hunt experience. Not least, they provide pleasure after a hard day’s hunting with good friends, but they also give us the satisfaction of knowing that we use what we shoot, making the very most of it. For us, it is also a way of respecting the game we hunt.

“When they say that first impressions last then we can say that this experience was achieved at Laplanque”; “exceptional trophies”; “a home away from home”; “their hospitality is unparalleled”; “what a wonderful team”; “incredible family Château with beautiful interiors and exteriors”; “a very fair chase hunt”.

Château de Laplanque was constructed in the 13th century by the Roques-Rogery family and has forever remained in the family ever since. Located in the South of France (an hour and a half from Toulouse airport), Laplanque’s estate is at an altitude of 600 meters (1,950 feet). The region is magnificently unspoiled and rich in traditions, gastronomy and surrounded by beautiful historical villages that we are delighted to help our guests discover.

The Château offers beautiful bedrooms, reception and dining rooms, as well as outdoor generous outdoor terrace. The library is the perfect place to wind down after a day of hunting. Château de Laplanque is family run and guests stay and dine as part of the family.

The estate has always been dedicated to big game hunting. The terrain is rough, the environment wild and the biotope highly varied.

Our grassland areas combine pine, chestnut and holly with birch forests and heather-covered cliffs which make for difficult and exciting hunting.

Since France Safaris was established, Guillaume Roques-Rogery, a wildlife expert and large game enthusiast, has put an enormous amount of time and effort into selecting the species Laplanque has to offer. The animals at the estate include red deer stag, fallow deer, mouflon sheep, sika deer and wild boar. The trophies acquired at Château de Laplanque are classified amongst the biggest in the world. The red deer stags have antlers that can exceed 18kg in weight and 42 points. The fallow deer have heavy, long and very wide palmate antlers while the most impressive mouflon sheep have thick and wide horns, often exceeding 90cm in length.

The hunting season starts the beginning of September and ends the end of February. Château de Laplanque’s estate is exclusively reserved for one hunter and his or her companions and hunting conditions are carefully monitored to ensure the best experience.

France Safaris is delighted to welcome hunters and their companions from all over the world to hunt exceptional trophies in a magnificent setting and show them the riches of a region overflowing with charm.

At the southern tip of Corsica, between the sea and the mountains, lies an immense estate in the heart of a valley carved by the Ortolo river. Its name is Murtoli, a secret destination whispered about by those in the know. This unique setting has a poetic air, with 2500 hectares of completely wild bush-covered terrain where flora and fauna have been left to thrive untouched, including forests, mountains, many inviting coves and an endless white sand beach that stretches along the Mediterranean Sea, a true paradise for hunters, but not only.

An exceptional hunting ground

The Domaine de l'Ortolo offers an exceptional hunting ground boasting 2500 hectares of well-preserved ecosystem with widely varying landscapes. Here, visitors hunt accompanied by Constant, the hunting manager, and his team from October to January. Although the estate can provide dogs, shotguns and rifles, kennels can be also provided.

Hunting in so different ways...Big or small game, driven hunt or with pointing dogs, by the boot and pass shooting. All in one place !

The rich and varied Ortolo valley hosts great groups of those famous wild boars, always quick and unpredictable game. The boars either stay back in the scrubland digging up roots from the land, gathering berries or standing by the nutritious oaks or go out into the valley, joining the swamp and the beach. Discover the traditional way of hunting in Corsica with memorable and passionating driven hunt. End the day with a different experience, go for "in front" hunting with the dogs.

For many reasons, the small sedentary and migratory game enjoy these large nutritious lands, the territory being crossed by the Ortolo river, the farming activity is all around, the environment is consistently maintained in the plain. The favorite small game here is red partridges but also pheasants, hares, pigeons, ducks, woodcocks, snipes. You will be part of a high-flying hunt and the next day, you can enjoy hunting with pointer dogs as well in a breathtaking landscape.

A 5-star hotel like no other

The hunting territory is located on lands which have been a working farm for centuries, a place called Murtoli, with veals and cows risen up, hundreds of goats to make the traditional cheese, its own olive oil, honey, jam, mirtle liquor. The Domaine de Murtoli offers you on site a complete range of luxury accommodation : unique and atypical among 20 shepherd houses restored from the 17th century with daily housekeeping service and breakfast delivery or in the heart of luxury suites, the intimate atmosphere of the Hotel de la Ferme, combining modernity and charm of the old.

At Murtoli, feel like being at the edge of the world... The taste of genuine Corsica, simple and authentic

Located in the southern tip of Corsica, between the old towns of Sartène and Bonifacio, nestled between sea, forests, hills and mountains, the Domaine de Murtoli is a very discreet address which presents an original vision of how a luxury hotel can operate tastefully and harmoniously amidst a reserve of natural wild beauty.

The Domaine de Murtoli is a very unique hotel concept rising spectacularly above the Mediterranean.

Once passed the inconspicuous wrought iron gate, Murtoli gradually – modestly – reveals itself along the curves of its 50 kilometers of tracks. The five-star hotel – the only one in Corsica open from April to January – is exceptional not only because of the sheer size of its wonderful grounds but also because the lucky few who have the privilege to stay here are accommodated either in dwellings, large landlord villas or shepherd's houses, all restored from the 17th century and scattered around the estate or in suites of a charming boutique hotel nestled in the heart of the valley offering an intimitate and authentic atmosphere. And amongst this classic Corsican wilderness, it is possible in one day to fish in the sea thanks to the estate's 22-feet boat, or fish the endemic trout in a river, go hunting, ride a horse, enjoy the summer spa or play the 12-hole golf course designed by Kyle Phillips.

As for dining; you have the choice between the beach and its La Table de la Plage, built entirely of driftwood, or La Table de la Ferme, a gastronomic restaurant or La Grotte, which, as the name suggests, is in a natural cave and has a terrace from where diners overlook what must be one of the most beautiful views on Earth. 3 restaurants, 3 different cuisines, 3 atmospheres.

Murtoli is not just a hotel. It is first and foremost a daily working farm with the desire to get the best out of the soils in the most natural way to bring the produce of the farm fresh and directly to the guests’ plates. Gardens on site offer their own organic production of fruits, vegetables and herbs, that you can even harvest yourself and take it for a meal back at your shepherds’ cottage. A small cheese factory where traditional varieties of Corsican cheeses – including tome and brocciu – are produced. Within the confines of the estate, land has been cleared for 400 ewes to freely roam. These gorgeous sheeps provide a deliciously tasty milk. Homemade honey is also offered on site in spring and fall. Farming at Murtoli is genuinely part of its DNA.

Every details have been taken care of in this majestic Corsican paradise. Appreciate the magnificent views in joyful silence, relish the sheer pleasure of being part of this peaceful landscape.

SWEDEN Rough shooting

Every year, Scandinavian Prohunters arrange a small number of VIP Rough Shoots with a mixed bag of birds. We use the very best dog handlers and hunt out of the fantastic castle of Markie Hage in order to be able to provide a fulfilling and comprehensive HUNTING experience. It’s a mixed hunt of partridge with pointing dogs and spaniels, take-off and flight for ducks and depending on the season, small drives for pheasant and grey legged partridges. If there is geese in the fields we normally start the day trying to get some geese over decoys. When you already here why not combine the wing shooting with some big game hunt out from the same lodge...

Roebucks, Fallow stag, Red deer, Wildboar, Mouflon & Bison

It is no coincidence that Swedish Roebuck are classified as the most beautiful buck in the world. Tall, slender and symmetric. They will provide you with an awesome trophy that will most certainly find a prominent spot in your home. Scandinavian Prohunters have the best privately owned properties in the Southern part of Swede where we every year shoot big gold medal bucks. We also have very nice Fallow stags (natural colored, black and white), majestic European Red Stags, Wildboars, Mouflon and European Bison.

NORWAY Reindeer

We have access to hunt EUROPEAN REINDEER in the desolate though beautiful Norwegian barrens long known to produce some of the largest antlered reindeer in the world. The area is about a four hours drive from Oslo. Only a limited number of bulls are taken each year to insure quality hunting. Horses are available at an additional fee to get even deeper into the mountains and barrens where the biggest bulls live and also for bringing the animal down from the mountain. We house our hunters in a very charming and comfortable highland hotel near the hunting area. Meals are deliciously prepared with local products.

GREENLAND Muskox and Caribou

This prehistorical animal has become very popular to hunt and that is understandable. We are going by boat along the river trying to find some good spotting places. When a good bull is located the stalk will start on foot. In the start of the season we are staying in a very comfortable tented camp by the river, when it's getting colder we are using cabins. We can also arrange this hunts in the spring time, then we will use snowmobile. For those who are interested to combine the hunt with a Caribou, the area is producing some very good trophies.

Spain has always had a peculiar attraction for hunters. It of course has two very unique ways of hunting namely the “ojeo” driven partridge and the “monteria” driven big game. Andalucia has long been the el dorado of partridge shooters, providing some of the world’s finest shooting, in breathtaking scenery of hills and valleys.

In contrast with the more northern hunting areas, Seville boasts a reputation of ever sunny skies and mild temperatures the whole hunting season long. Taking the sun at his post, with these “Spanish grouses” all around you is a pleasure for any hunter. The informal yet traditional atmosphere, punctuated by the convivial Spanish hospitality, makes these outings a daylong fiesta. Put Soto Real, the exclusive hunting resort and retreat in these surroundings and a Magic Safari Lodge is born.

But, what really triggers everyone’s imagination is that you can walk around in short sleeves in winter, enjoying your days out hunting while friends or associates back home are shivering in the cold. Your only thought then is: “this is magic”.

Nature around Soto Real could not be more tempting! A true sportsman will appreciate the swift flight of the red-legged partridges driven from the hills by the majestic Andalusian horses over an armada of a dozen pair gunned shooters.

Spain is rated as one of Europe’s last hunting paradises and the abundant nature of Soto Real offers most exciting opportunities for the shooting sportsman. The 5.000 acre shooting grounds are bordered on one side by the delta of the Guadalquivir and on the other by the Sierra Grazalema.

Red-legged partridges are amongst the most challenging birds in Europe and our driven partridge shoots are an absolute delight! The mild Spanish climate almost always guarantees clear blue skies and warming sun. The breathtaking views of the Andalusian countryside and the beauty of the typical red partridge make the picture complete. Season starts early October to end only mid March

Wonderful outdoor cocktails, lunches prepared in the countryside by our chef and a beautiful presentation of the bag of the day will contribute to make your stay at Soto Real an unforgettable synergetic experience. Depending on the time of year, Soto Real offers many other shooting possibilities.

From July till the end of September, quail and rabbits walk up shooting over dogs is organized for small groups. During the normal hunting season, hares and partridges can further fill up your bag and towards the end of the season flights of thrush represent a particular attraction.

The main cortijo has this very special feel of a wonderful country house. Each room designed and decorated in a delightful blend of traditional Andalusian and old Moresque style, has an en suite luxury bathroom, intimate salon and private terrace.

Soto Real does not attempt to present an image or make a statement. The aim is to provide guests with quiet comfort and discreet service, which will enable them to relax and draw from surroundings and to restore the senses that modern life tends to crush. The perception of luxury also has a touch of elegance: decoration is luxurious yet without ostentation, fantasy in all sobriety giving total tranquility.

Soto Real is also perfect for couples and families, for a long weekend or a short week. It is within easy driving distance of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the towns of Jerez, Sevilla and Cordoba and the surrounding white villages - all available as chauffeur-driven excursions.

In the cortijo itself there are opportunities for horse and carriage riding, fitness, sauna, as well as a beauty-center, tennis and clay shooting, all organized by professional staff.

Big game also abounds in the forested hills with species such as the red- and fallow deer, roe, mouflon and not forgetting the much-coveted wild boar. Hunting them in Monteria style, driven by dogs “podencos and mastines”, holds the greatest fascination for anyone, given both the skills and the ancient rites involved. Stalking the Spanish Ibex is a challenge for the fittest as the mountains around Ronda can take their toll.

Experience real big game hunting, tough, hot and dusty. Getting you close up on a huge Buffalo is what we live for. A true adventure.  5 hunting days, 1 Buffalo, 1×1 US$16,500, 2x1 US$10,900.

DANGEROUS GAME

We have stopped many charges. These water buffalo have unbelievable strength and power. The bulls weigh from 750kg up to 1000kg, yet can move very fast. Remember that only a perfect brain or spine shot will reliably stop a charge.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

Our team of guides offer real hunting, real adventure. Honest, ethical, professional. Best season June, July, August. Plane flights or helicopter to the hunt area are extra costs. Contact us soon to assist with your hunting, travel and fishing plans in Australia.

See you in the bush, safe hunting. Graham Williams PH.

Rangitata High Country Hunting is for guests who enjoy a true wilderness hunting experience. Our beautiful lodge is set in the foothills of the Southern Alps of Aotearoa, New Zealand, high above the valley floor with uninterrupted views of the Rangitata River and the surrounding mountain peaks. This is alpine hunting camp luxury, warm comfortable rooms with delicious local cuisine provided each day by our in house high country chef.

Rangitata High Country Hunting has more than 200,000 acres, over 300 square miles of privately owned land in Te Waipounamu, the South Island, exclusively for our guests. Wild game animals live throughout the properties and thrive in the surrounding mountain wilderness. Our hunting business includes a team of professional gamekeepers and hunting guides who keep the wild animal balance maintained with a very healthy stock of superior animals for all our guests to enjoy. The land is very diverse and ranges from low lying wetlands at sea level up to alpine peaks over 6000ft high inland, including native forests, river valleys and open snow tussock.

Rangitata is world renowned for exceptional tahr hunting. Each season our guests take many trophy bulls with most hunters taking two bulls during their stay. The red deer herds of Rangitata are magnificent and each year our hunters take trophy stags with an average antler score of 450 SCI. Red stags up to and in excess of 500 SCI can be found on our land. Our Fallow deer herds include palmated trophy bucks. There are Wapiti, Chamois, Arapawa Ram, Goat, and Wild Pigs on our properties. Offroad vehicle access up to 5000ft enables us to drive up the mountains then walk down onto the animals from above.

The Rangitata High Country Hunting experience uniquely starts right from the lodge. Whether you are chasing a bull tahr, red stag, fallow buck or chamois the hunt starts the very minute you put your boots on and walk out the front door.

The stags are big, the scenery immense, the hospitality endless. The pristine game habitats of our family-owned operation in the South Island of New Zealand are renowned for producing the biggest stags in the country. It’s here Top 10’s are harvested. It’s here numerous world records have been set. It’s here you’ll reach the peaks of trophy hunting excellence.

We ensure you can range far and wide to gain that once-in-a-lifetime trophy. To complement our privately owned hunting areas we have long term lease agreements with large local landholders.

Besides world-class Red Stags we also offer quality hunts for Tahr, Chamois, Fallow, Elk, Goat, Ram, Boar, Whitetail, Sika, Sambar and Rusa. These big game species are complemented by small game (rabbit, hare, wallaby, possum) and, time permitting, wing shooting.

We provide a home for one of the largest privately owned trophy red deer herds in the South Pacific. Thanks to decades of carefully focused game management the quality of a Cardrona Safaris red stag is unbeatable.

This is how we’ve gained considerable acclaim for producing world class trophies, with stags scoring in excess of 600 SCI and 20 kg of antler. A trophy this big provides our hunters with a genuine ‘larger than life’ experience – it’s an exceptional time that you’ll never forget.

We take pride in providing eye-catching heads with sizable mass, great width and strong scoring points. We know that the attraction of a trophy is according to individual tastes and therefore have a wide variety of animals to suit all preferences.

Our team will help guide you to your target with the ‘spot and stalk’ style of hunting. The approach is always one of exceeding expectations - be it with the service before and after, the hunting experience and the final trophy.

Our country is renowned for breathtaking beauty, friendly locals and the incredible range of activities and adventures on offer to its visitors. Within driving distance of our hunting areas there’s truly something for everyone – from laidback sightseeing to adrenaline-fueled exploits. This makes New Zealand the ideal hunting holiday destination for the whole family.

We provide a world-class standard of service that’s at the same time laid back and friendly – everyone feels at home when hunting with our family. Quite simply, we offer New Zealand’s ultimate hunting experience. It’s one we look forward to sharing with you.Owner & Manager

Style and respect can be found in all products – in the naturalness of their materials, their high functionality and aesthetics, and their first-class workmanship, as well as their durability.

The Gun Dog Affair is not a label you adorn yourself with, but rather an attitude you adopt out of conviction. A style that is formed from tradition and unites all those who wish to express their respect for nature and the craft of hunting. Those who have high demands on their appearance in all areas of life and thus also on their clothing.

Classic, elegant, timeless.
