Sika Hunting, Wilderness Block
Free Range SIKA HUNT for 2 hunters
NZ $2850 each hunter total $5700
(includes food, accommodation, helicopter, and guide)
This hunt cost has been the same the last 5 year.
Due to an increase in the lease of the property I will now charge a $2000
trophy fee when a trophy stag is taken
I think this is fair for all hunters as not everyone gets a stag.
You can still take management stags and meat animals free of charge.
This is a fly in helicopter Sika Free Range hunt. We will fly into the back country to a basic back country hut with a shower and flush toilet.
I only do 7 hunts a year on this block giving each party a good chance of success.
This option is best suited to 2 hunters wanting a Sika.
- Day one: drive to helicopter pad and fly into block, we will be hunting that afternoon
- Hunt 3 full days
- Day 5 hunt morning then fly out in the afternoon.
Trophy quality is very good, hunt success rate varies from 75 to 85% each year.
This is a wilderness hunt and a reasonable standard of fitness and expectations of taking a stag is required. I recommend 5 days for this hunt.
Bonus: Some Red Deer are present on the block and 1 Red Stag and Hind can also be taken by each hunter if desired

If you are looking for a stag over 110 sci [apx 175 DS] you need to let me know when booking the hunt as we only take 2 to 4 stags this big on this block each year.

My hunting area is a mixture of native bush, manuka scrub with open clearings in the bush and scrub areas.
This is a real hunt, very challenging success rate 95% on stags 175+ stags
Mature sika stags are very smart animals and only venture out into the open when they feel relaxed, so our method of hunting is sitting and glass the open areas for long periods so that the big stags dont know we are in the areas.
We move occasionally to look at other clearings.
I have several shooting spots set up on each clearing to best suit wind direction.
A new shooting spot set up in Dec 2014 on one of Brian's favorite clearing elevated in a tree.
Accommodation is a cabin and hut all with power hot showers etc. This is very basic but comfortable.
This hunt there is a lodge option on the property this is an extra charge. Please ask about this if your interested.
