Glen Dene – Trophy Hunting in New Zealand
Richard and Sarah Burdon are third generation owners of the high country station of Glen Dene and its location separating the two lakes of Wanaka and Hawea. Amidst the Southern Alps of New Zealand this is one of the most stunning hunting environments you will find anywhere.
Sited between two World Heritage areas reaching high above the lakes, Glen Dene’s internationally rated professional guides and the quality of game guarantee a superb kiwi hunting experience.
Whether stalking game with our guides on the station’s own private property or on nearby Department of Conservation Land you have the option of seeking trophy chamois, red deer, Arapawa rams, South Pacific goats, tahr and fallow deer.
Glen Dene also has concessions for hunting on other private land and a major focus of their operation is the planning of hunting trips well in advance to ensure a successful trip for all members of the party including non-hunters.
As a working high country station the Burdon’s have been farmers, fishermen and hunters all their lives. Sharing the knowledge of the hills and valleys of the area with you will give you an insight into their unique ‘high country’ heritage.
A variety of accommodation choices, classy cooking and helicopter options with some of the best flyers in the business ensures you’ll enjoy a high value experience in the traditions of high country life – South Island style.
Non-hunting alternatives sampling the nearby café’s, galleries, vineyards and boutiques of Wanaka and Queenstown means we can also cover all the bases for couples or groups looking for a well earned break.
Managing and transporting your game to our expeditor or taxidermist ready for shipping is another one of our services.
