High up in the picturesque Southern Alps lives one of New Zealand’s premier big game trophies. Along with the Chamois, the bull Tahr is considered the king of the mountains. The Tahr is wide-ranging and can eat a huge range of different vegetation. Such characteristics make it an extremely successful invasive species – and a popular hunting target.
While Tahr can be hunted all year round, their rutting period is May, June and early July. During this period they have impressive long winter coats, which is as important a consideration as horn length when securing a trophy.
Tahr can be hunted in a variety of ways: by foot, spike camp or helicopter assisted.
We provide an unforgettable New Zealand adventure unlike anything you’ve experienced before. Giant, world-record red stags are just the beginning of the perfect hunt. We also offer a wide variety of big and small game hunts to complement any trip.
