Fire, I too just returned from a hunt with Peter. I believe I followed yours, although mine was a wilderness Tahr hunt. I hunted for just four days and the rest of the three weeks we spent touring. NZ is an amazingly beautiful country with welcoming friendly people. Sounds like your time there was as enjoyable as ours.

Awesome...! Peter mentioned he had a client that referenced the AH.com site... When can we see the photos from your tahr hunt? Where else did you go in NZ?

Just time for a quick summary...We toured the south island only. Started in Christchurch and via rental car made a big figure eight. Initially going west across the island and north to Able Tasman (beautiful park/ beaches/hiking, cruise) for a few days then back east and south through Kaikoura (good rock lobster at the Pier Hotel restaurant) back to Christchurch where I met up with Peter and his son Alistair for the hunt.
After the hunt we went south and west to lake Tekapo, down to Te Anau(bused to Milford Sound for a cruise which Kipling called the 8th wonder of the world, Milford track here also considered one of the worlds top hikes). We then swung back north to Queenstown, Wanaka, west to the glaciers Fox and Franz Josef then back to Christchurch. A day or two in each location was sufficient, good well marked roads. Not a foodies paradise by any means, but we did find a few decent restaurants, English fare mostly.
The hunt was an adventure, several hours driving up rock strewn river beds to the near headwaters and camp. Much time spent glassing the slopes from the river bed, once a good animal was located we made a plan and I was successful in taking a 7+ year old bull on day three of the hunt.
Peter knows his business and will let you know that, will hunt as hard as you want, but be capable and competent.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
