Trophy Hunting

With more than 3,000 acres of game estate, Poronui is able to offer a wide range of top trophies including red stag, fallow buck, rusa, sambar,  Arapawa rams and feral goats.

The quality of the habitats within the game estate at Poronui are such that all species reproduce prolifically.  The vast majority of the animals in the game estate have lived their entire lives on Poronui.  The combination of grasslands, manuka scrub and old beech forests means excellent trophies, wily deer and challenging hunting.   All these factors combine to create an enjoyable and authentic Poronui experience.


The range of species thriving on Poronui provides unmatched year-round trophy hunting opportunities and extends the rut from mid March to August.

If you want more information about trophy hunting in New Zealand, we have a separate website with trophy galleries and hunting-specific information, and we suggest you visit that site.
