After three nights hunting the last morning will be spent maybe sorting out taxidermy if you have not already done this.

You may wish to spend half a day on a whale watching tour. One of our most popular excursions is to view the whales from a small plane flight giving a unique close up view of the entire whale, nose to tail!

Probably the best outfitted hunt I have ever been on. Beautiful lodge and property. The guides were top notch and extremely professional. The food was excellent and everybody in the organization was a pleasure to deal with. They all went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.


“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!”

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.
