Clarence Valley Trophy Hunting Lodge, tucked away amongst some of the most stunning scenery of New Zealand's South Island, has developed a reputation for spectacular guided deer hunting experiences. Test your skills hunting Red Stag and Fallow deer, try to bag some Awapara rams and wild goats or opt for free range hunting of Red Stag, chamois and tahr. No matter whether you're chasing big game with rifle or bow, we cater for hunters of all styles and experience levels and offer our years of expertise and assistance throughout your whole experience. You'll have our entire private block of land to yourself – that means no competing with other hunters for those big game trophies.

We focus on what's important to you for your hunting trip:

  • The highest level of safety
  • A high success rate (going home with something to show for it!)
  • A true nature immersion experience with local experts
