HUNTING & WHALE WATCHING TOUR

Days 1 – 2

Upon arrival into Christchurch, your Monarch guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you to The Britten Stables, your accommodation for the night.In the centre of Christchurch and originally the horse stables for the Mona Vale Gardens it was here that John Britten designed and built his world-record setting Britten V1000 motorcycle.

Day 2 – 5

You will take breakfast at the B&B before collecting your hire care and taking a 90 minute drive the hunt station. A normal hunting day will start with an early breakfast before heading in to the hills early in search of your stag. You will hunt in to the late afternoon. After three nights hunting the last morning will be spent maybe sorting out taxidermy if you have not already done this.

Day 5 – 8

After lunch you will self-drive to the coastal town of Kaikoura to stay in the beautifully restored Kaikoura Boutique Hotel. You will have plenty of time to relax at your leisure, explore the artisan shops of Kaikoura Village, visit the large sea lion colony, hunt out the little blue penguins or take a short hike on one of the inland bush trails. 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!

Days 8

This short trip has introduced you to some of the great outdoors of New Zealand as well as a glimpse at some of the amazing hunting on offer here. Plus you will be walking away with a tremendous trophy and hunting stories to share. Your last day concludes with a drive back to Christchurch airport to connect with your flight back home.

“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.
