Hello life sized hunting
Well you won't stumble upon 'canned hunting' here at Nine Yards Safaris with Ian, and you won't ever be stuck in crowded camps either. What you will find is brilliant red stag hunting, expert guides and superb convenience with a hearty side of ranch. That's because we offer a massive private hunting environment that effortlessly blends four star accommodation and full ranch facilities with brilliant accessibility to large trophy game for both rifle and bow.
Species to hunt
Red stag, sika, sambar, fallow or tahr? Did you know we have this amazing computer system where you just type in the exact characteristics of the red stag or other New Zealand species you want…. Ok we don’t. But what we do have is a huge range of top quality species available in both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. You can hunt them individually or roll any combination of species into one epic hunt. You choose. We make it happen.
Life size your NZ hunt adventure
If raw heart thumping adventure and free ranging hunting is what knocks your socks off - head off with Ian on one of his famous road trips where you can speed around on jet boats to hunt pigs, or fly by helicopter or ride horseback into some of NZ's most private locations to hunt wild beasts. If you can dream it - chances are we can do it. Truth is, we have a knack for delivering life sized adventures when it comes to hunting red stag and other South Pacific game species in New Zealand.
Get a new hunting story
If you ever get the feeling your favorite hunting story never quite gets the audience it so obviously deserves, you probably need some fresh yarns. And, we can even help you with that. You see, the really great thing about choosing to hunt with Nine Yards Safaris is not only do you get a fun, life sized adventure to enjoy… but it your experience will also come in pretty handy when you get back home and it’s your turn for story telling.
