A three day hunting experience that gets you up close and personal with New Zealand's venerable Red Stag. Observe, meet and learn the different traits & characteristics of New Zealand's Big Red and witness first hand why these blokes are one of the world's greatest trophies. A must for any hunter.

Stravon is a full-service, hunting driven tourism operation based out of a pristine wilderness property nestled in South Canterbury's world renowned Hunters Hills, home to arguably the finest big game animals in New Zealand.

We help our guests achieve their dreams by giving them an experience that captures the very essence of what hunting in New Zealand is all about. We do this through conservation, passion and the sheer natural beauty of New Zealand.

About Us

We are the first, and at this stage the only guided hunting operation in New Zealand to be awarded an “Endorsed Visitor Activity Award for Hunting” by Tourism New Zealand. With this honour, we also received two Enviro Gold Awards. One for how we run our operation and environment, and the other for our Alpine Eco Lodge, which also has Four Star Boutique Lodge status 3000 ft up the side of the Hunters Hills.

Being the first to achieve the standards set by Tourism New Zealand and Outdoors New Zealand's OutdoorsMark is something we are extremely proud of as it embraces what we believe to be the safest yet wildest and eco-friendly hunting operation in the nation.

Founded in 1864, this property lies on the eastern face of the Hunters Hills. The Hunters Hills received their aptly suited name from the Māori leader Te Huruhuru, who considered the area as his favourite hunting ground. One of the first places on earth to see in the new day, these venerable hills date back to the Palezoic Age (roughly 270 million years ago) and have been renowned hunting grounds since man first arrived on these shores.

Why hunt with us?

We appreciate that traveling to New Zealand is a big decision. For starters, it's a long way away. To travel this distance you want things right; you deserve it, after all. That’s why, the first two questions you are asking yourself before embarking on such a extraordinary journey are:

1) Who should I hunt with? And to be fair, when it comes to this question, that can be a bit like working on a mystery without any clues. Outfitters alike will give you differing tales but with similar endings. And to be honest, we’re no different. Like the rest, we believe our game and our operation to be up there with the very best. However, the one thing we all agree on is that New Zealand is the ultimate hunting destination. What you can see and do here in a few hours, let alone seven days, is quite simply astonishing and in some circumstances, life changing.

2) Why should I hunt with them? We have not only set the bar but are continuing to raise the standard of guided hunting in New Zealand. We are the first and at this stage and only guided hunting provider to have been accredited and endorsed by the New Zealand Government. This honour was achieved by earning Qualmark’s prestigious Enviro Gold and Endorsed Visitor Activity awards. Qualmark helps deliver on the promise of 100% Pure New Zealand experiences as the world's first accreditation system to include both quality and environmental assurance.The landscape here almost seems tailor made, not only for the hunter but for the animals themselves. This extraordinary 'hunting scene' is a big reason why the Hunters Hills are so celebrated.

Coupled with our lodgings, the property really does capture the quintessential New Zealand hunting experience superbly. Our lodgings come with their very own chef with many years experience in the U.S.A and the Mediterranean who can produce all standards of cuisine and functions depending on our clients taste and preference.

And last but certainly not least is our partnership with Calibre Taxidermy. This turn-key operation produces trophies of world class standards, exporting them to all corners of the globe. This collaboration provides the hunter with a ‘one stop shop’ that effectively keeps the entire event under one roof.

Red Stag

Red stag are known as one of the most majestic animals in the world and were introduced to New Zealand more than 150 years ago. Fall (red deer hunting season) begins at the end of February and runs through to July. During this time, 300 class red stag, right through to some of the world´s top SCI red stags, are available for hunting.

During the summer, red stag are dark red or brown with a lighter color of cream on the underbelly, inner thighs and rump. There may also be some spots on the summer coats, particularly along the spine. In winter, the pelage changes to a darker brown or grey, with lighter patches on the rump and undersides. It is notable that their caudal patch tends to reach higher up the rump than is the case with other deer.

Both sexes have tails of approximately 15 cm in length which are generally the same color as the caudal patch. This tail may have a dark dorsal stripe that can extend upwards along the spine. There is also a visible gland high on the cannon bones (the long bone immediately above the hoof) of the rear legs. Appearance can also be influenced by age and condition, for example yearlings and calves have a shorter head due to having fewer teeth in their jaw than an adult. Alternatively, when deer condition begins to fail through age their coats will often appear to be ginger in colour, even in the winter months. Calves are spotted at birth but generally loose these spots after about two months.
