"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."

South Pacific

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.The Hunting Consortium has been arranging hunts in the South Pacific since 1978.

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.

We know personally every operator we recommend and we visit the hunting areas frequently to ensure that our information remains current.

Knowledge – Working long hours, full-time, in the hunting and fishing industry, experienced consultants uncover and accumulate information no amateur sportsman would be exposed to. Real consultants are not just booking agents. Knowing which areas to hunt or fish, which operator to use for a particular quest and when to go for the highest chance of success, is the essence of our craft. (Beware of part-timers, they are really just amateurs in disguise.)

Experience – A good consultant’s experience allows him to edit the multitude of offerings in the marketplace, selecting precisely the right option to suit the individual taste and desires of each client. Bob Kern and his experienced staff have hunted in more than 50 countries throughout the world, over the span of more than 50 years. Bob has personally collected over 160 species of big game (over 500 trophies). They spend much of every year visiting hunting and fishing destinations, exploring remote territories, speaking with operators, old and new, and evaluating ever-changing conditions. They are the more experienced outdoor adventure team in the world today.

Insider Information – Consultants receive confidential information involving the financial stability of operators, pending new game regulations, and a host of other technical issues continuously. This, information is used to temper recommendations and guide clients’ decisions.

Advocacy – Every operator wants to fill his camps and sell his harvest quota. The consultant’s objective, on the other hand, is to please and serve his clients. If a dispute should arise between an operator and a client, an experienced consultant can often use his leverage to obtain an equitable solution. A customer can only represent his individual position to any operator, but the consultant represents the voices of many clients and can elevate any issue to market-wide exposure, when necessary.

Service – The staff at The Hunting Consortium routinely procures visas, firearm permits, and other travel documents, as well as issuing air tickets, making hotel reservations, and performing a host of other services to make travel easier and more interesting for clients. They also construct complex sightseeing programs to compliment any hunt.

The disappointment over a bad experience lingers long after the joy over the low cost has faded.
