Backpack Mountain Hunting

For those looking for the true mountain hunting experience and have the physical ability to walk the mountains, Exclusive Adventures Tahr and Chamois Backpack Mountain Hunts are sure to make hunters fall in love with our mountains and game animals. The animals and terrain provide a similar opportunity to hunting Mountain Sheep in North America, yet the time frame, cost and over all experience are more attainable. A Colorado outfitter, Tom Schulze, believes ‘New Zealand has everything North America can offer and more”. This is a must for all avid mountain hunters and has proven to be an unforgettable adventure.

Hunts are conducted on both private and public land. Hunts are organized to suit each hunter and their physical ability. Helicopters and four wheel drives are used to access previously scouted hunting grounds to ensure trophy animals are both present and attainable.

Time Frame

Hunters will be picked up from Queenstown from their chosen Hotel. Airport pick ups can be arranged, however experience has shown us that it is better to have the first night at a hotel to recover from the travel and also give time for any unplanned travel interferences.

From Queenstown you will be picked up by Exclusive Adventures New Zealand around midday and travel to the lodge in Wanaka (50mins drive). We will check the accuracy of your rifles and sort the remaining gear needed for our mountain trip and finish the day with fine dining including lobster and wine.

Next day

Providing the weather is manageable we will travel early morning to our chosen hunting destination. Here we will either fly or drive into the area that we will hunt for your chosen game. Helicopters are our main use of transport as we fly to a higher point in the mountains and means less energy and time is wasted on getting the preferred hunting area and maximizes your trophy hunting time. Tents will be used for camping on these mountain hunts.

I could not be more sincere in recommending Shaun and Exclusive Adventures New Zealand to put together a trip of a lifetime for you." Jason Hairston – KUIU founder

"If you have not experienced Hunting in New Zealand you are definitely missing out! Having backpack hunted extensively in North America for sheep and goats from Alaska to Mexico, I was not sure what to expect in New Zealand. I can tell you with 100% certainty New Zealand offers one of the most challenging and rewarding mountain hunting experiences anywhere. The game is plentiful, the country is rugged and beautiful, and the hospitality is second to none. If you are thinking about visiting New Zealand, I cannot recommend Exclusive Adventures enough."
