Hunt the
King’s Animal

We provide a home for one of the South Pacific's largest privately-owned trophy Red Stag herds, offering an unbeatable experience to hunt red stag in New Zealand. Thanks to decades of carefully focused game management, the quality of a Venator New Zealand Red Stag is unbeatable.

The offical home World Record Trophies

Our relentless pursuit of excellence is the reason we’re the current holder of four world record Red Stags. A pursuit we proudly called “The Kings Slam” rewrote the record books with the first harvest of a Red Stag over 1000 SCI.

Larger than life New Zealand Red Stag hunting

We take great pride in providing a variety of eye-catching New Zealand Red Stags with great mass, exceptional width and long scoring points. A big trophy provides a genuine ‘larger than life’ experience – it’s an exceptional time you’ll never forget.

From quality stock

Between 1861 and 1919 more than 250 Red Stag were released here for sport hunting. Most of this stock came from the great English parks, with some sourced from the Scottish Highlands. With no natural predators, plenty of food and initial protection from red stag hunting in NZ, they spread quickly throughout the country.
