points of interest from the 2016 season:
For our free-range
trophy hunts we achieved a 100% success rate, with red
deer stags shot ranging from a 10point stag up to 16 points. Some
very good Fallow deer over 200 SCI score were also taken. Wild goats and pigs were plentiful and some good trophy horns and tusks taken. For diversity, some turkey hunting was also done.
For our estate hunting some good stags from 14 points up to 30 points with some over 360 SCI.the three bow hunters also had success in securing an animal.
On our casual meat hunts all of the hunters have had success with some getting up to 4 deer for the trip with a good number of pigs and goats also being taken.
Free-range trophy hunting as well as estate and casual meat hunt bookings are now being taken for the 2017 roar season.
We still have some good roar time trophy hunts available for the 2017 season , the1st April till the 5th,or the10th april till the 15th.

Either of these hunt dates would be suitable for bow hunters.
also the only other roar time hunt available is for a free-range hunt only, for up to two hunters.

The roar period in New Zealand runs from 15th March through to the 10th
May, with the peak of it normally being from the 26th March
till the 25th April.
All hunting is on Okau Willderness Park, a privately owned forest park over 5,000 acres which is part of a large coastal wairarapa mountain range. The park is not deer fenced.
This spring and summer have given good growth conditions, with the game being in very good condition, therefore some excellent trophies are about.
Trophy hunters wishing to hunt for the 2017 season are advised
to book early if they are hoping to hunt during the roar period.
