                        Tahr hunting is exciting, challenging and rewarding. This hunt takes place on a large private tahr estate property in the Canterbury region of the South Island. Expect to see 100+ tahr per day while targeting a mature bull with horns 12-15 inches. While this hunt is in a challenging environment, access is more achievable than a free range hunt with excellent ATV access across the property. This is a 4 day, 3 night hunt. Options to add multiple iconic and trophy New Zealand trophies.
