Traveling through New Zealand- Hunt Question
It is my wife's turn to pick a vacation and we might be headed to New Zealand... perhaps on a cruise.
Dumb question(s) of the day:
1) Names (and web sites) of a few good outfitters.
2) Is it reasonable to think that a guy could sneak in a 1 or 2 day hunt?
To me touring to be touring is just a pain...I like to travel to hunt. With that in mind, any thoughts to make the cruise a little less painless?

I think theres a few 3 day hnuts available ,on both north and south islands .
what did you want to hunt ?
a mate just got back from over there and its the 3rd time hes been with the same bloke , when he finishes work l will try and get the details for , if not l will do it Monday , as it fallow deer stag season here at the moment and hemay hit the bush straight after work .
if your on a cruise ship in un zed ,depends when and where you cruise , it will be painless , and even maybe a wee bit choppy .
and the bar will take care of that .the worst days hunting ,still shits all over the best day at work

I'll kindly pass on the all-inclusive dolphin trip!
I cant see this trip happening for some time (perhaps a year or two)... just trying to get some thoughts put together.
Thanks in advance Bluey for any info you could find.

I try to get a walk in the woods/bush on any trip. I love scenery and geography, but I fee insecure with out a firearm along.
Possums are scary and those Red stag a Chamois can be outright dangerous.
If going to NZ make sure you do some fishing.
A buddy loved those big fat trout in the rivers. I'n still jealous.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!

Here is a place I looked at while at the DSC convention.
ASJ Trophy Hunting New Zealand - ASJ Trophy Hunting, New Zealand
I think they do 1 to 3 day hunts ~ take a look
From checking it appears they have a quality operation.
I am thinking about going there in 2016.

I'm in a similar situation. Last summer my wife told me she was going on a photo trip to New Zealand and asked if I wanted to go hunting and then meet her for a couple days or touring. She twisted my arm! Had to say yes. My research brought me to Peter Chamberlain of Kiwi Wilderness Safaris Lt. He was the cheapest gold medal red stag hunt that I found after a significant search and more importantly he has good references. I'll be there end of April and first of May this year. I'll post a hunt report in May so look for that as current info. Bruce
