Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are all hunts guided? 
A. At Stag Point they are all guided, however, depending on your skill level and gun license we can organise trips around NZ that don't require a guide.
Q. How much experience do I need? 
A. For the Game Estate you don't need any experience, our guide will talk you through the whole process. For anything outside of the game park you need a general knowledge of hunting.


Q. How safe is it

A. At the Game Estate it is very safe and safety is paramount.  Hunts outside Stag Point are subject to NZ weather and terrain which require a sound knowledge of hunting in the elements. Your guides are there to assist you.
Q. What equipment will I need? 
A. We prefer that people bring their own equipment simply for their own comfort, however, we have everything you need if you don't have anything e.g. gun and ammunition.
Q. How do we get to Stag Point? 
A. If in NZ, you can either drive to us or fly to Wellington and we will arrange transfers.


Q. What do we do with the animal? 
A. It depends on what you want. You can take it with you or we can take to a local butchery or send to a taxidermy at an additional cost. 
Q. How much does butchery cost? 
A. It does depend on the animal, but usually around $100 to butcher and package ready for the freezer. You do get a lot of meat for that price and we use a professional game butcher to maximise the yield. Courier fees are extra.
Q. How much does taxidermy cost? 
A. Taxidermy is done by a our professional in central North Island. Costs are approximately $2000+ (for a large red deer 14+ pts) but it does depend on the animal and work involved.
Q. Can anyone come on a hunt with me? 
A. On a guided hunt at the Estate, you can have one other person with you (non-hunting). The helicopter trips are priced for two people however we can arrange for larger groups. Please contact us for a quote.

For any questions you still have, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss your next hunt.
