The Southern Alps offer a vast opportunity for excellent game hunting. In fact, here in New Zealand we have some of the best public land hunting in the world. The Antler Addiction team started planning this hunt around August 2018. Lead by myself, we planned to tackle a summer bull tahr hunt and take a bunch of film to make a short video for the hunting community.
Along for the hunt would be seasoned hunter Aaron and our Aussie mate, hoping to bag his first trophy. In the early months, planning progress was slow due to it involving several bottles of fine whiskey. However, over time we decided on a location, supported by local knowledge provided by DOC.
