Our exclusive hunting block consists of approximately 700 acres in South Auckland. We take great pride in our land, investing our time and energy into preserving and maintaining NZ native plant species and wetlands, unique to this country.
However, our real focus lies on our population of animals. At Adventure Hunting we have introduced a wide range of species that can live and thrive in this block independently and sustainability for generations to come, with no need for human interaction. This is something we feel very strongly about, we believe in monitoring a thriving ecosystem within our grounds and can confidently say that the welfare of our animals is our Number 1 priority, Our animals can live, feed and breed as they would in the wild with no outside stressors to interrupt them until they are humanely dispatched.
We don’t consider ourselves as just a hunting block, where you pay your fee and take an animal. We are offering the experience that is unavailable to so many. The chance to hunt in a safe and ethical environment, where you can source completely organic meat with 100% traceability from bush to plate for you and your family, or have access to some of the most impressive trophy animals in the world.
We are proud to host a wide range of species within our block, including the world renowned Red deer, NZ native Arapawa sheep and even a growing population of Danish White Red Deer which are considered a rare breed here in New Zealand and around the world. Our dedication to a healthy and sustainable population of game and bushland is what sets Adventure Hunting apart as a unique place to experience top quality hunting.
As well as our own hunting location we also offer guided hunting on private and exclusive land in South Auckland/Waikato, Whanganui and South Island with a range of game available, offering a variety of locations, terrain and game to fulfill your hunting needs. This way we can display the very best that New Zealand has to offer to hunters and outdoor enthusiast.
For those looking for a challenge and the thrill of hunting in the wild, our trained and experienced team are certified to also offer guided hunts on public DOC (Department of Conservation) land. This land is an unpredictable expanse of tough terrain, unpredictable climates and breathtaking scenery, proving that New Zealand truly is a hunting destination like no other.
Ethical hunting is the process of hunting whilst retaining respect for the animal itself, making decisions based on the animals and surrounding environments welfare and hunting sustainably to ensure the quality and health of the future generation.
It is this thought process which the team here at Adventure Hunting practise every time they hunt and encourage others to do the same. Ethical hunting is a rewarding experience, respecting the animal completely requires making decisions based on the welfare of the animal and your surroundings over taking the shot at any cost. Hunting is about so much more than the animal, to our team and many other hunters it is a valuable chance to leave behind stress or pressure from this fast paced lifestyle and relish in the tranquility of nature. It is traditionally said that a true hunter can go hunting 10 hunts without taking a single animal and still be excited for the 11th. This is the experience that we enjoy sharing with others, watching families and groups bond over the simplicity of being together in nature without any distractions is what drives our passion for what we do.
Ethical hunting is also a great way for us to monitor and maintain a healthy and sustainable population of game. In many blocks and public land, the decision to take an animal is often based on convenience, timing or trophies. Our strict approach to game selection allows us to control the quality of the genetics and ensure a healthy and sustainable generation to come. By limiting the number of trophies each year, and taking the time to identify whether a doe is pregnant or has dependant young are examples of ways we can ensure animals aren’t wasted, or future generations jeopardised.
Correct hunting practices and education are essential for any hunter to dedicate themselves to. Most hunting accidents occur due to a lack of education and experience. It is this which we aim to provide at Adventure Hunting. Hunting can be a naturally dangerous activity if all risks haven’t been addressed and prepared for. We provide education from preparing for your first solo hunt, game selection and retrieval to appropriately cleaning and skinning your game for minimal waste.
This shouldn’t limit you in your wishes to experience this rewarding activity. If you want to go hunting, witness the excitement and relish in the peaceful surroundings, we can ensure no animal is wasted. If you only want to take a small amount of meat with you, or even none at all, we ensure that any meat, offal, skins and skeletons are put to good use, respecting the animal in refusing any wastage.
Hunting has traditionally been viewed as the job for the man of the family, bringing home food for his family. Those days are gone! At Adventure Hunting we encourage families and groups to enjoy this experience together. Our exclusive hunting block is a safe and responsible environment to introduce hunters of all ages and capabilities to this exciting activity. Our team are all experienced and knowledgeable hunters and can offer the training and education required to introduce you, your family or your group to hunting.
If you are experienced hunters looking for an opportunity to get out and hunt in a safe environment; maybe it’s time to introduce the kids to hunting and you want a safe place to start, or you’re wary of other hunters on public land, then Adventure Hunting is the place for you. Our selection of exclusive hunting blocks is available to only 1 group at a time. You have no worries about other hunters in the area, and you have access to vast amounts of prime hunting land completely to yourself, a rare opportunity wherever you are in the world.
