Craig Boddington Endorsed Outfitters
– About

Being a Craig Boddington Endorsed Outfitter gives us a great sense of pride here at Poronui Hunting. With more than 40 years of hunting experience in 56 different countries, there is no better judge of hunting destinations than Craig himself. His passion for hunting and the outdoors was recognised from a young age and has followed him throughout his life. Craig’s varied career history includes being an outdoor sports journalist and editor as well as serving 31 years in the Marine Corps and co-hosting of Guns & Ammo TV and Petersen’s Hunting Adventures TV.

But what does this official endorsement mean for our guests?

The organisation’s mission is ‘to create a separate marketplace for the serious hunter and excellent outfitter’ and they are committed to this. Only 100 outfitters worldwide can be part of the program, meaning only the most excellent hunting experiences make the cut.

The intense vetting process includes a visit to each destination and the one underlying criteria that a property needs to meet is ‘would Craig recommend the outfit to his best friend?’. This approach makes the recommendation all the more important as it is less about the lodge’s facilities and more about the experience as a whole.

Craig has visited and hunted at Poronui twice now; “When I first visited Poronui, I knew I’d found a very special place… and it remains so today!” Commenting specifically on the superb Sika and Red Stags as well as Rusa, Sambar, Fallow and range of activities for the hunter, Craig has a similar outlook to us. He’s looking for a great hunting experience, with plenty of opportunities and a whole lot of fun. Eve, Mark and the rest of our team love meeting new people, and welcoming returning guests, who quickly become friends.

So when you are researching your next hunting trip, quickly narrow down your choices to the best in the world by visiting one of our peers at the Craig Boddington Endorsed Outfitters website. Happy hunting!
