Red Stag

A New Zealand Trophy Red Stag has always been a number one priority for big game hunters since the 1930’s. The red deer were introduced to New Zealand in 1851 to the Nelson area, (top of the South Island). Further introduction occurred right through until 1919. These deer were introduced from the British Isles game parks. Without any predators other than man the deer quickly spread throughout both islands.

Red Stags can be hunted from mid February, this is when they are in hard antler, till mid August, as after this time they shed their antlers. The most productive and exciting time to hunt Red Stag is during the roar, which occurs mid March till late April. Rivers South Safaris offers fair chase estate hunting for these majestic Red Stags which can be taken with the rifle or bow.
