The Mackenzie Country is a wilderness paradise and boasts some of the best hunting the South Island has to offer.
The spectacular Mackenzie region is home to plentiful game animals, including Himalayan tahr and chamois on the rugged alpine ridges, and fallow deer and red stag in the hilly tussock country. The Mackenzie is also home to game birds, and waterfowl along its clear streams and turquoise lakes. All this against the stunning backdrop of Aoraki Mount Cook and the Southern Alps.
Professional outfitters provide personalised guiding services, gear and valuable local knowledge to ensure a successful hunt. Several helicopter companies offer backcountry access and support services for hunting parties.
