We did a five-day hunt with just my hunting buddy and myself – all on private land. Paul and team were great to hunt with and we could immediately tell they did their pre-scouting homework as we saw a lot of stags, and Tahr. We did an archery hunt which can be a bit of a challenge with limited animals to choose from – this definitely was not the case with Glendeer. In addition to great hunting, good food and new accommodations – we were the only two hunters in camp for our 5-day hunt! Both of scored on record book stags.
I definitely plan on going back to New Zealand for a Tahr hunt and no doubt will book with Paul and Glendeer. Good luck with your NZ hunting plans and feel free to phone me directly with any further questions you might have.
Hi Paul and Jude, We are now home and have been trying to get back into our normal routine, which is difficult after such a stimulating trip. Thank you for all that you did for us. Anne was particularly appreciative of Paul’s instruction and Jude’s friendship. It was memorable in every way. On the stag front, I have surveyed the house and think that in the place where he is most likely to end up, he should have his head turned to the right so we can think of it as the mirror image of how I last saw him standing. We will always think of you as fabulous friends who shared some terrific adventures with us, no doubt you occupy that role for many people, but you are very good at it and made our trip special. Thank you again and stay in touch. Cheers.

Paul & Jude, Just wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful time, hunt and over all New Zealand experience during our stay with you. It was great to have such a nice team working with us on this stay and we really appreciated all the well organized work that went into this hunting adventure for us both, a sincere big thank you and we look forward to coming again sometime soon. Great trophies, great food and accommodation, a very high standard of guiding, well done!

What an experience, I’ve been on a lot of trophy hunts in my time and this was one of those hunts that will leave many moments to cherish, Jude thank you for taking such great care of the family we all had a fantastic time. All the best.
