But how do you know where to start if you are not a regular traveller to New Zealand? Here are some sample itineraries of trips we have created with our clients. Some trips you travel alone, others you can choose to have a Monarch guide in the background to show you the really amazing places off the beaten track, take the hassle out of driving or help with those things which are sometimes a little hard to organise in a foreign country.

On the sample itineraries below we suggest some of the variations that our clients like. Things like choosing a Southern Alps Taxi (we think you call them helicopters) to move between spots instead of driving, having the chef come to your residence instead of heading out, or adding in an extra day here and there. If you see an itinerary that seems of interest start by filling in the enquiry form where we will ask you for some preferences. We will then come straight back to you on your preferred method of communication at a time that suits you and start to shape the most perfect New Zealand adventure.

After enjoying a few days hunting your trophy red stag, tour some of our beautiful country and experience a tahr hunt in our alpine regions. Then head south for a few days sightseeing in the adventure capital, Queenstown.

“What an experience! Luke’s knowledge of the station we hunted and his consummate skills as a guide made for fantastic hunting.  We saw lots of game and two spectacular stags, one of which became mine. Thanks Luke and the Monarch staff for making my hunt of a lifetime happen. We will do this again!”

Thank you Monarch and your excellent guides  for taking me on an amazing hunt during the Tahr rut. The scenery was spectacular and the quality of animals was second to none. Just what I wanted, a once in a lifetime Bull Tahr trophy, with a beautiful winter coat and lovely horns. I would highly recommend Monarch pursuits to any hunter wanting to secure their own Bull Tahr or Red Stag Trophy!


Whether it was trophy hunting or meat harvesting, going hunting with Luke was a great time and really successful too. And the locations that Monarch takes you too were some of the best landscapes in New Zealand!!!! Our hunting adventure was a real experience in such a beautiful part of the world.

Thanks Luke! We had an awesome weekend. Jonty was pumped after shooting his first Red Stag and sticking his first pig.
