New Zealand's Premium Trophy Hunt

Monarch's high country stations total over 100,000 acres and have some of the best red stag hunting you can experience. During the "roar", the stags bellow there mighty roars, echoing through the valleys and is a magical time to be in the hills, pursuing this great animal. 

Monarch prides itself on being able to deliver the best outdoor experience, and helping the hunter achieve their goal. Monarch's guides have extensive hunting experience in New Zealand, and have a great passion for the outdoors and look forward to sharing what we have to offer with you.

Our clients have full exclusive use of our stations, to ensure the emphasis on privacy and making you dream hunt come true.

Hunters often add extra animals onto their hunt such as Tahr, Chamois, Fallow Buck, Elk, and Arapawa Rams, all of which roam Monarch's properties.

Your Hunters Sanctuary

Monarchs two high country stations offers something for all hunters. Whether its 5 star luxury or a humble mountain abode, Monarch has something for everyone. Rolling hills to high mountain crags, rippling tussock to bush clad gullies, sometimes you forget to hunt when immersed in our hunting playground. 

Our Hammer Springs property of 26,000 acres is nestled in the heart of north Canterbury and boasts some of our best hunting. Red Stag, Fallow, Chamois and rams call these hills home. Spectacular high country, with crystal clear mountain rivers, native bush gullies and open tussock mountain tops, a trip here and you won't want to leave. With Hammer Springs close by, families are well entertained and looked after with plenty of activities available.

Our High Country property, located at the foot of the southern alps, is a remarkable property being amongst some truely big mountains. Holding some great animals, the hunter won't leave disappointed! With Mt Hutt as a back drop, and the mighty Rakaia River a stones throw away, this location certainly is hard to beat.
