points of interest from the 2015 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 20 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 over 360 SCI were taken.
Free-range trophy hunting as well as estate and casual meat hunt bookings are now being taken for the 2016 roar season.
Due to a cancellation We have a prime roar time hunt available the 26th March till the 30th March
for a mix of either free-range or estate hunt for a trophy red or fallow stag, for two or three hunters
also the only other roar time hunt available is from the 10th April till the 14th april for
a 14 point or over red deer stag, estate hunt only, for 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 2016 season are advised
to book early if they are hoping to hunt during the roar period.
