Safaris has opened hunting on New Zealand’s beautiful and rugged South
Alps” region. The international
airport connection is from either Los Angeles or San Francisco
to Aukland (North Island). A domestic flight
then takes you to either Timaru or Christchurch (South Island)
airport, whereupon you are picked up at the terminal by your
guide and driven to exclusive hunting properties near Waimate.
southern hemisphere, seasons are reversed; our winter is their
summer, their fall is our spring etc. The best time for New
Zealand hunting is during our spring, a perfect balance for
the American hunter who likes to keep his or her North American
options open for fall. Hunting can be scheduled from March
through July as that is the time of the “roar” or “rut” for
most species. The climate then is by North American standards
relatively mild, although unpredictable. Four seasons occurring
in one day is not uncommon. Temperatures vary between 70-80
F during March, 60-70 F degrees in April and 30-50 F degrees
in June/ July as you enter winter.
numerous large game animals available during the season and
can be mixed with
outstanding waterfowl hunting (May) and just perhaps the
best trout fishing in the world. One of the interesting aspects
of New Zealand’s flourishing game population is that its
entirety was introduced from other continents. When Captain Cook
first visited the islands in the 1700’s the beautiful lands
were devoid of large mammals. European immigrants in the middle
1800’s introduced their most coveted wild game species
and they rapidly adapted to an environment free of predators.
Today, these magnificent animals can be hunted on huge private
ranches or extensive tracts of public lands.
|The most sought after
trophy quality species are the red stag, fallow buck, tahr, and
chamois. The red stag is priced based on either “silver” or “gold” level
scores. The antlers on either stag category are impressive to
say the least, and make an ideal addition to any hunter’s
trophy room. Scoring is SCI and the break point between the silver
and gold is 332”!
2007 season, Kabra Safaris is offering an exclusive fully
guided (1 x 1) red stag hunt package for five days starting
at $4,500 US. Days and species can be added to the package.

a hunter travels abroad there are numerous details that, when
put together, can needlessly spoil what should be a most memorable
and successful endeavor. At no additional
cost, Kabra Safaris will assist you over these hurdles. For
example, Kabra Safaris can coordinate all aspects of your air
transportation and paperwork for customs (firearm, bow declarations
etc) All too often the international hunter’s return
of trophies to the United States is frustratingly slow and
encumbered with domestic paperwork. As part of our service,
we assist in coordination of this process and getting your
trophies to a taxidermist of choice. We also are pleased to
offer the option of having them done in New Zealand and shipped
complete to your residence.
