New Zealand has no indigenous mammals, they were all imported at various stages of human invasion and can all be legally hunted throughout the year. Much of the country has suffered from over hunting and we have found that in most public areas game often tends to be scarce and of a small size. We recommend therefore, taking a helicopter into the most inaccessible regions of the southern Alps, at altitudes of 1500 – 2500 metres, where a base camp can be set up and strong populations of mature Himalayan Tahr and Chamois live in healthy numbers. Obviously these mountain ranges are closely guarded secrets and a lot of research has been undertaken into finding territory where the hunter has the best chance of securing a good trophy of both species.
