New Zealand Chamois Hunting
New Zealand is home to the only herd of wild chamois in the southern hemisphere and they’ve rapidly become popular with North American hunters. The interesting hooked horns of this antelope-like mountain goat make a great trophy. From April onwards after the onset of shorter days and colder temperatures the chamois coat becomes thick and glossy and makes for a special mount.
Many private safari hunting operations cannot offer chamois hunting on their own properties and have to offer chamois hunting elsewhere. But the herd of chamois that live in the bluffs and crags of Glen Dene provide an exciting challenge without the need to travel. Because of their sharp eye-sight and tendency to live in rough country chamois are often shot at long range. A successful chamois hunt usually involves a careful stalk and a shot taken from the prone position.
We also offer heli-assisted chamois hunts as an option for our clients.
