Privately owned, Clarence Valley is available for your party's own exclusive use during your hunting trip. Bow or rifle, we welcome all hunters, regardless of fitness and we do our utmost to ensure your satisfaction.

Red Stag
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 Buck
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.

Tahr (Thar)
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 Hunting
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 available.
