Elk Bull

One of the world’s most desirable trophies

ELK BULLS PUNCHING IN AT OVER A THOUSAND POUNDS ARE THE BIGGEST OF ALL THE ROUND HORNED MALE DEER.

Our guided Elk hunting has developed to the point where it now equals the best areas in the US for trophy quality animals.

Also known at Wapiti, the Rocky Mountain Elk bull were introduced in 1909 and quickly took to the mountainous southern Alps. The original herd of twenty Elk were a gift to New Zealand from then President, Theodore Roosevelt.

Cardrona Outfitter’s offer premium bull Elk hunts.

Our guided Elk hunting has developed to the point where it now equals the best areas in the US for trophy quality animals. Massive Elk Bulls scoring in the high 300's (and the odd 400+) are fairly common.

We recommend joining us in the New Zealand Autumn, March through May for the best of the hunting season to score one of these gigantic beasts.

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!
