Deer Stalking

The South Island holds some of New Zealand's finest game and the wildlife you'll discover at Stravon is of exceptional quality. 

THE ROAR in these parts, starts mid March and continues to the end of April. This is the prime time for stalking New Zealand's Red Stag. Stravon moves to a slightly different beat during this time of year - it is as if the place slips into a sixth gear, the atmosphere created throughout this period is something to behold and with the sound of their heartfelt challenges reverberating through the valleys sets the scene for what is a truly magical time of year.

Beyond Stravon, our alpine hunting locations are minutes away by helicopter. A flight that is a journey in itself and one that takes you via some of New Zealand's greatest natural wonders.

Assisting you through all of this will be your STRAVON GUIDE. Our team are highly skilled on many levels and are dedicated to providing you with a completely unique and unforgettably natural experience. They're some of the friendliest, most knowledgeable and down to earth people you'll meet - so pick their brains and be prepared to make long-lasting memories, and a few mates along the way. 

Your adventure awaits…
