rifle, we welcome all hunters, regardless of fitness and we do our
utmost to ensure your satisfaction.
New Zealand is renowned for the finest red deer stags in the world
and priding ourselves on quality, Clarence is no exception. Trophies range from representative to the
top of the record books.
Red stags can be hunted from late March until early August with
April/May being the best time.
Fallow are unique because of their palmased antlers and
distinctive body colouring. Fallow can be black, red and white, pure
white and generally have white on brown spotting. They can be hunted
from March until August.
One of New Zealand's most prestigious big game animals. They live at
high altitude in the Southern Alps. As well as their impressive horns,
tahr also have a
long thick mane which makes for a great full mount. Tahr can be hunted
from the end of April until the end of July.
Chamois have brilliant eye sight which makes them difficult to hunt
although they can be hunted all year round. We recommend they are
hunted from April until July because of their full winter coat at that
time. Chamois are normally hunted in conjunction with Tahr.
New Zealand Wapiti (Elk)
Wapiti are hunted in the same areas as Red Stag and Fallow.
New Zealand Wapiti are generally thicker in the beam than other elk. Trophy's range from representative to top record book. They can be
hunted from late March until early August.
Wild New Zealand Rams (Arapawa Rams)
Most hunters take these as an extra trophy with their thick spiral
horns and browny/black skins they make a wonderful wall mount and can
be hunted all year round.
Wild New Zealand Goats
We have a number of excellent trophy goats
roaming the park. They also come in a unique range of colours and can
be hunted all year round
Bow hunters are very welcome at Clarence Valley. Many take advantage
of the "one hunting party at a time" practice as this ensures
undisturbed animals within the park, thus giving you the best chance
to successfully secure one of the many quality trophy animals
