"During the past 5 years the Hunting Consortium has been the most invaluable resource a hunter could ask for.I have averaged over 150 hunting days in that time and many, if not most of those days were booked through The Hunting Consortium. Their knowledge and experience is unmatched in the hunting industry. I have always been pleased with the quality of the outfitters and the professional hunter’s and guides that Hunting Consortium have booked for me. I’ve hunted in Africa over a dozen times on hunts booked by the Hunting Consortium and every time I felt like I was hunting the premier area with one of the best outfitters and knowledgeable, helpful professional hunters. In Africa I have taken 158 different animals I couldn’t have accomplished that without the Hunting Consortium. I was on a hunting trip for over 6 weeks in the South Pacific which included a family vacation with my adult children and hunted with 5 different outfitters in 6 different areas in both New Zealand and Australia - a LOGISTICAL NIGHTMARE that the Hunting Consortium handled without a hitch. I finished that trip by hunting all of the species available to hunt in these locations besides one. EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS on a single trip. The achievement I am most proud of though is my 21 day hunt in Spain where I took every animal that is currently available to hunt. Considering that the 7 Capra species were all free-range, this was very challenging but the Hunting Consortium put me in the best areas with best outfitters."

Hunting in the South Pacific is so enjoyable, not so much because of what species are available to be hunted, as for WHERE they are hunted. The South Pacific is arguably the most beautiful region on earth. White sand beaches and tropical rain forest give way to vast uninhabited stretches of Eucalyptus forest and great snow-capped mountain ranges. Friendly, hospitable people, treat their guests to great food, comfortable lodging and entertainment in a warm, relaxed atmosphere, which has made this region famous since Captain Cook and his sailors first reported about it 200 years ago.

There were no large mammals in the South Pacific prior to European settlement in the 18th century. Europeans brought with them several species of domestic stock, some of which ran wild and acclimated to the environment. Other species were purposely brought in over the next 200 years and released for sport and venison and have established healthy wild populations. Nowadays there are a dozen species and subspecies of deer, two wild oxen, wild pigs and other animals available for the traveling sportsman.

Experience – “Wisdom from Experience!” is no hollow epithet. Bob Kern and his experienced staff have traveled throughout the South Pacific since the 1970s and hunted all the major regions there. The Hunting Consortium is proud to represent several of the finest outfitters in the South Pacific, we know who is reliable and who isn’t.

This experience is time consuming and expensive to amass, but costs our clients nothing extra. In fact, it has spared our clients countless problems, saving them precious time and money, while maximizing their chance for success and a positive experience.

Research – Current and accurate information is essential to the success of any hunt. No other company engages in more field research and scouting than The Hunting Consortium Ltd.
