Kuranui - Premier hunting outfitter in New Zealand.

"VOTED NEBRASKA SAFARI CLUB OUTFITTER OF THE YEAR 2008"

Simply Translated Kuranui means'Big Red'...

Kuranui is a premier hunting outfitter in New Zealand specialising in Big Red Stags. An exciting fair chase hunt awaits you! Track through native bush and Manuka clad rolling hills of the Kaimai–Mamaku Range before emerging into open grassy clearings where the pure clear waters of the Kuhatahi Stream meander and majestic red stags come out to graze. Hunting these hills for some of the world’s finest trophy deer will be among your most precious memories and a highlight of your hunting career.

 

As our guests you will enjoy our hospitality exclusively as we only have one party here at any time. Kuranui specialises in majestic red stags and also has Fallow, Wapiti, Rusa, Sika, Arapawa ram, wild goats and small game. South Island Tahr and Chamois hunts can also be part of your New Zealand hunting adventure from our lodge. Guests can also enjoy night shooting for opossum and rabbits, and paradise duck hunting in season.

Hunters and non-hunters are welcome, and firearms with quality optics can be provided.
