Whitetail Deer Hunting
Last updated on September 19, 2016
Whitetail deer originated from the American state of New Hampshire, and were introduced into Stewart Island at the bottom of the South Island in 1905. The main herd still exists there today living in heavy cover and is as exclusive as its Homeland cousins.
Our hunting is done mainly on private reserves that have small numbers of whitetail deer, where the bucks do very well. Weighing less than their cousins, we typically hunt them by sitting and glassing, waiting for the deer to feed out of the cover.
Whitetail stags come into hard antler in March, with the rut taking place in May.
