This is the most challenging and therefore most rewarding form of hunting in New Zealand. This is comparable to sheep or mountain goat hunts of North America and Asia. The terrain and weather can make these hunts a challenge but the respect for the terrain and animals that inhabit it, is truly earned and the trophy means that much more.
Why you should consider tahr hunting New Zealand:
- Hunting season is April through July, but the best hunting is during the rut in May and June.
- High trophy quality. The focus is on mature bulls.
- High success rate. Rifle hunts run 100% opportunity.
- You can make your tahr hunt a combo by adding a chamois to your hunt.
