BRING HOME THE KING OF THE MOUNTAIN, ONE OF THE TOUGHEST ALPINE HUNTS IN THE WORLD, HYMALAYAN TAHR HUNTING IN NEW ZEALAND.
Utilising a helicopter to assist with the hunt is the hunter's best choice.
One of the toughest alpine hunts in the world, the Bull Tahr is a very challenging and ultimately rewarding hunt. Helicopters provide the best access points to the Bull Tahr and give a spectacular aspect of the seemingly desolate alpine region.
The mountainous terrain and high altitudes add to the thrill of the hunt, though not for the faint hearted.
The Himalayan Tahr residing high up in the Southern Alps were introduced to the South Island of New Zealand in 1904 and have grown immensely in popularity due to their unique appearance, fine coat and the intensity of the hunt.
Cardrona Outfitters recommend hunting Tahr between May and July when they have their full winter coats. These animals make a beautiful full body mount which is very popular with our hunters a wonderful and unique edition to any collection.

Hi Simon, I just wanted to thank you for helping me fulfill a long term dream in shooting a trophy elk. I couldn't be happier with the end result – definitely one of the only animals I've ever shot that doesn't suffer ground shrinkage as you get up to it! It just got bigger and bigger! A lot of amazing country was covered in the two days it took to find him - couldn't have done it without your help!
This is the second time I've been hunting with Cardrona Outfitters and it won't be the last (don't tell my wife that though)! Feel free to share my comments as I'd highly recommend you to anyone considering going to NZ hunting!
