    It can be yours for only $150,000. Is this a canned hunt or what?
    Not my cuppa!

    Hormones, hormones, hormones. You can get good stags with good management however that is obscene.

    AKMIKE, this will be a fenced hunt for sure, this stag was bred to be hunted, what I can not tell you is how large the area will be my guess is 1000 - 2000 acres.... this stag was bred and released.

    My best always.

    Bred to be killed and most likely as wild as a milking cow.
    This has nothing to do with hunting.
    This is pure trophy shooting and collecting.

    I would be embarrassed if I had a mount of that animal in my house as everyone with just a hint of knowledge about hunting would know that I had shot someones "pet".

    I think you all missed the point there is a tahr hunt in the package also. LOL To think I am only about 145,000 short right now.I think this stag may just fail a drug test if given one and I bet taste awful to.

    Gentlemen All I know of this is what's in the ad. I have no need for my name to be on some list for shooting this critter. It's not a hunt it's just like shooting livestock to me, no sport just shooting.
    In my mind it's similar to someone having trophies on the wall that they bought off EBAY.

    For $150,000 they won't even buy you a drink? That gives new meaning to milking the client for every penny.

    Face it - in NZ nearly all trophy hunting takes place behind high fences. Outside the fenced areas, what we consider game is considered vermin - no season, no limits. In some areas, the government poisons them! Only problem may be access. However, you are unlikely to find what you would consider to be a trophy worth hanging on a wall.

    theres plenty of good trophy animals on public land in nz mrgoat
    the hard bit is that the bush is that thick that you cant see the deer
    a mate of mine goes over there every janurary and feburary and is forever moaning about not being able to shoot because he cant see the bloody things .
    even worse during the roar he rekons you can smell em and hear them moving roaring straight in your face but just cant get a shot
    last year in three week hard hunting he took a real nice sika stag a 13 point red and a 21 point red deer stag .

    Well, in that case the price seems much more reasonable. :clapping:
