"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."

New Zealand

This beautiful island country, not far from Australia in the South Pacific, is composed of two land masses- the North Island and the South Island. Together they are about the size of the state of Colorado. Because of its remoteness, New Zealand was one of the last places on earth settled by humans. Polynesians settled New Zealand around 1300, but Europeans, which now form the vast majority of the population, arrived in 1640. During its long isolation New Zealand developed is own distinctive fauna, mainly birds, many of which became extinct after the arrival of humans. The striking beauty of New Zealand’s mountains is unmatched in the South Pacific. These magnificent mountains were featured in the award-winning film trilogy Lord of the Rings.

There are no native game species in New Zealand, but the European settlers brought with them several favorite game species, such as red deer, fallow deer and Alpine chamois. In the succeeding centuries these introduced species have successfully spread out over both islands and are firmly established themselves. In New Zealand mountain game such as Alpine chamois and Himalayan tahr may be hunted under conditions similar to those in their native habitats in Europe and Asia.

New Zealand is today famous for its huge red stags – the product of generations of careful selective breeding on game ranches, which specialize in this species. New Zealand is also a major producer of venison for restaurants around the world. In recent decades many other popular game species have been introduced, specifically for hunting.
