We provide a home for one of the largest privately-owned trophy Red Stag herds in the South Pacific. Thanks to decades of carefully focused game management, the quality of a Venator New Zealand Red Stag is unbeatable.
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 trophy this big provides our hunters with a genuine ‘larger than life’ experience – it’s an exceptional time that you’ll never forget.
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 hunting, they spread quickly throughout the country.
By the 20th century, New Zealand Red Stags had made a big impact on our beautiful native forests. It’s been a history of many twists and turns. Get ready to take some of your own as you pursue the greatest antlers in the world.
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.
