KEY INFORMATION

World’s greatest antlers

We provide a home for one of the largest privately-owned trophy Red Stag herds in the South Pacific. Thanks to decades of carefully focused game management the quality of a Venator Cardrona Safaris Red Stag is unbeatable.

Larger than life hunting

We take great pride in providing a variety of eye-catching stags with great mass, exceptional width and long scoring points. A trophy this big provides our hunters with a genuine ‘larger than life’ experience – it’s an exceptional time that you’ll never forget.

From quality stock

Between 1861 and 1919 more than 250 Red Stag were released here for sport hunting. Most of this stock came from the great English parks, with some sourced from the Scottish Highlands.

With no natural predators, plenty of food and initial protection from hunting they spread quickly throughout the country. By the 20th century they’d made a big impact on our beautiful native forests. It’s been a history of many twists and turns. Get ready to take some of your own as you pursue the greatest antlers in the world.
