Red Stag

One of the world’s most desirable trophies

TAKE HOME THE RED STAG ON THE HUNT OF A LIFETIME. ENGLISH ROYALTY HAVE BEEN HUNTING THE RED STAGS FOR CENTURIES. JOIN THE RANKS AND BRING HOME THE RED STAG CROWN.

Weighing up to a thousand pounds the stag’s popularity in the hunting community stems from its spectacular antlers.

New Zealand Red Stag hunting has quite the proud history, introduced during early settlement from English game parks, the stags have thrived in the local environment.

Cardrona Outfitters is home to one of the largest privately owned red deer herds in the South Pacific.

The Red Stag is a much sort after beast. Weighing up to 750 pounds the stag’s popularity in the hunting community stems from its spectacular antlers. Antler size can reach as much as forty five inches and grow up to sixty six points. The antlers are astonishing, a prize worthy addition to any trophy room.

Cardrona Outfitters reside in the South Island of New Zealand near Lake Wanaka home to  snow-capped mountains and spectacular scenery.

We encourage our hunting parties to visit Cardrona Outfitters from mid March to mid May  be absolutely awestruck by the size of the Red Stag. With off-road vehicles and helicopter pilots at your disposal our dedicated crew will help you find and track your trophy through the epic wilderness on the hunt of a lifetime.

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!
