I'm looking to book a trip to New Zealand that would include 8 people, three couples and two children current ages 5 and 8. The trip would be for me, my wife and kids, her parents and two of their friends. The three guys would all like to hunt red stag and we'd like to have some activities planned for the wives and children. One of the lady's is an apiarist and would love to visit a apiary while there.

I'd like to hear from anyone who's been to NZ, any advice you may have, any recommendations regarding outfitters and accommodations for a group such as ours would be greatly appreciated.

We would likely be making the trip in 2020 or 2021.

Are you after free range/low fence or high fence? I've done the former a few times.

Most likely high fence, but I’d like to hear about your experiences. Did you do a hunt report on here about them?

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
