Deer Stalking

There is a fine line restoring the balance between the environment and the herds at Stravon. Culling is essential to maintaining this balance.  Too many deer and there's the risk of disease, too many deer and they eat out the understorey of the forest, hurting the natural habitat of our native bird populations. Our management and proven systems ensures the herds at Stravon are of exceptional quality. 

THE ROAR starts mid March and continues to the end of April. This is the prime time for stalking Stags.  The following months are the rut & bugle of the Fallow & Wapiti respectively. Beyond Stravon, if Tahr & Chamois are on your radar, are our ALPINE HUNTING locations. Only minutes away by helicopter. The flight 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.
