COVID-19: Discover Poronui's COVID-19 policies and procedures
2024 Hunting Show Season
– Hunting Experiences

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 StagsSikaFallow 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 Sarah will be at both shows ready to answer your questions and help plan your dream hunt. If the very biggest red stags are on your list, come and view photos that have our team so excited. We will be running an amazing show special – and will make sure you secure your spot for the peak of the 2025 Rut.

The 2024 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 stopping by the booth and we welcome you to come and share hunting experiences with us. We would love to reconnect with you all and hear all your plans for future hunts!
