Welcome to Poronui Hunting

New Zealand's Premier Sporting Lodge

Home to some of the best hunting in New Zealand.

Stalk big Red Stags 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. Our experienced guides are passionate and knowledgeable and will lead you on the adventure of a lifetime.

Part of what makes Poronui different is that you can shoot four New Zealand North Island deer species; Red Stag, Sika, Fallow and Rusa, in one place.

One of New Zealand's top outfitters.

With over 3,000 acres of prime New Zealand wilderness, hunting at Poronui requires skill, technique and patience. Hunting is primarily spot and stalk and method of take can be bow or rifle.

Whatever your passion, our guests talk of the magic of hunting in New Zealand – the breathtaking locations, the genuine Kiwi warmth, and the camaraderie they share with guides and fellow adventurers.
