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.
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!
