Backcountry New Zealand Trophy Experiences
Are you interested in a trophy hunt experience that is 100% purely dedicated to you and your spouse or hunting companion? We cater for one hunting party at a time to ensure this service promise whilst catering for a limited number of sought after experiences each year. Our hunts utilise and match you to the best suited of New Zealand’s leading premier Game Estate's and one was the first to be accredited under the Game Estates accreditation process. These properties boast also being some of the largest estates, if not the largest and offer thousands of acres of prime hunting land. They offer solitude, seclusion and prime stalking terrain for those seeking exclusive use during their stay. With superb trophies ranging from representative to record class, these properties are ideally suited to hunting with its attractive and challenging terrain. Situated in the Canterbury High Country just one hour from Christchurch international airport, stalking game with Backcountry New Zealand can be achieved very quickly after first stepping foot in New Zealand.
The hunting grounds have a varied game habitat comprised of tussock-clad hill country interspersed with native beech forest and the inimitable matagouri shrub. The native grasslands, forest-filled valleys and clear mountain streams provide the ideal habitat for populations of New Zealand’s wild animals.
Rising to over three thousand feet in altitude with a fifteen-hundred foot vertical rise, the hunting area is well serviced with four-wheel drive tracks. While this provides good mobility for hunting, most hunting is accomplished on foot and thus a reasonable standard of fitness is required. The property also provides an exclusive hunting cabin set deep in the heart of the estate, perfect for an overnight escape from reality or a quick cup of tea during your day. The Cabin can very much compliment the experience of our hunting lodges, for those that love to get back to nature and away from power and phones. For those that wish to experience 100% luxury accommodation as part of their hunt, our hunting lodges offer some of the best that New Zealand has to offer.

Commitment to quality Game Estates:
The NZAGE was set up in 1997 by the owners of New Zealand’s private hunting properties to represent their interests to government, other associated organizations and in the absence of government regulation, to set and maintain standards for the managed hunting industry. The Association has established Industry Agreed Standards (IAS) and each member property is audited to these standards by an independent authority. The IAS is constantly updated and member properties are re-audited regularly.
The NZAGE is New Zealand estate hunting’s industry standard and forms a vital part of Backcountry New Zealand's assurance to their clients.
