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.

Hunting in New Zealand with Simon from Cardrona Outfitters truly was a hunt of a lifetime, from hunting Fallow bucks in the beautiful Cardrona Valley, to hunting Chamois and Tahr up in the majestic Alps of the west coast!
The food and lodgings were first class, and Simon is an amazing guide. His knowledge and experience hunting world class trophies is second to none!
Thanks again mate for the incredible experience you provided, it was a hunt I will remember and talk about forever - I'm already getting excited planning my trip back with Cardrona Outfitters next year!
