The roar period in New Zealand runs from 1st April through to the 10th
May, with the peak of it normally being from the 5th April
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 2018 season are advised
to book early if they are hoping to hunt during the roar period.
