Kuranui - Premier hunting outfitter in New Zealand.

"VOTED NEBRASKA SAFARI CLUB OUTFITTER OF THE YEAR"

You are invited on a genuine fair chase hunt with Mort, one of the most experienced Professional Hunting Guides in New Zealand. A reasonable level of fitness is an advantage however he caters for any age and physical ability and is patient and encouraging when teaching novice hunters.

Hunting begins on foot from Kuranui Hunting Lodge as the sun awakens the day. Experience the earthy essence of ferns and forest and early birdsong as you walk secret trails that lead to clearings, lush green river flats or vantage points to glass for game. Silently deer appear stalking begins, excitement mounts, closer and closer for a good clear shot, hushed whispers, lots of pointing, shooting sticks in place and finally the crosshairs focused on their mark... the rest as they say is up to you!!

This is your hunt; we guarantee to get you in position to take your trophy!

 

Our customised hunts can include from our North Island location: Red Stag, Fallow, Rusa, Sika, Sambar, Arapawa Ram and wild Goat and night shooting for small game, rabbits, hares and possums. Our trophies carry impressive antlers blackened from rubbing their favourite 'Manuka' bush and pearly tips from polishing in the volcanic soil. In the South Island Mort guides you high in the Southern Alps for free range Tahr and Chamois. Your combination hunt is tailored personally for you and can include game from both the North and South Islands of New Zealand

We specialise in exclusive bookings of one hunter, couples or groups of up to of 8 family or friends. We have hosted hunters and families from around the world including USA, Australia, Canada and Europe.

Excellent trophies, exhilarating hunting and absolutely amazing hosts, thank you Mort and Mel. We will miss you a lot, you were the best hosts that I have seen in the last 30 years of hunting. Dr's Shiva, Anu and Arjun Australia.

"Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for more than an excellent hunt and friendship. Thank you for being who you are. Fantastic food, lodging and hospitality, we've been blessed to be here. My SCI Gold Medal possum is awesome! Truly wonderful game, we loved hunting and stalking in your beautiful country." Sam and Tina Knoy Arizona USA.
