COVID-19: Discover Poronui's COVID-19 policies and procedures
2023 Hunting Show Season
– About

It’s show season – and it’s great to be back!

For some of the best New Zealand Red Stag hunting, visit the Poronui Hunting team in Dallas or Nashville.

Based on the North Island, Poronui is home to all the North Island deer species – Red Stags, Sika, Fallow and Rusa. Stalk through Poronui’s native beech forest and across scrub-covered hills, wade streams and crawl around fallen logs to get into the perfect position to take your shot at a bucket-list animal. The terrain is challenging but achievable and the hunt is always exciting.

Steve and Vicki will be at both shows ready to answer your questions and help plan your next hunt. If the very biggest red stags are on your list, come and view photos that have our team so excited.  Described by our head guide as the best he’s seen in the 15 years he’s been at Poronui, several are expected to top SCI700.

The 2023 rut is imminent (expected to start in mid-March) and it’s an exciting time of year. The Red roar is spine-tingling and it’s a great time to combine hunting with fishing for rainbow and brown trout in the remote mountain streams and rivers surrounding our property.

Past clients will be dropping by the booth and we welcome you to come and share hunting experiences with us.
