Mark McGlashan - Head Hunting Guide
I have been working for Poronui Hunting for ten years. My passion for Deer and Hunting starts with the Deer farm on the property. I am lucky to see animals start their life here and eventually see them become a highly regarded trophy for hunters. It’s a great feeling to share the hunters excitement of a once in a lifetime hunt .
Marcus Adlam
Marcus is a straight-talking guide who will lead you on an epic hunt. Although he has spent a lot of his life hunting around the world, the first deer Marcus ever shot was on a Heli Sika trip from Poronui when he was just 9 years old – and now he is back.
Marc Clinch
I am very passionate about the outdoors. I've been hunting since I was knee high to a grasshopper. My favourite deer to hunt are red stags and sika deer. Seeing the sun wake up is the best time of day for me.
Josh Burden
I am a deer, sheep and beef farmer brought up in Hawkes Bay. I have hunted from a young age and enjoy the challenge and thrill of hunting deer, especially Sika. Guiding a client on to a deer within the amazing setting of Poronui is a rewarding and special experience.
Keith Burden
Keith is not only a deer and sheep farmer but also a velvet buyer, and stock agent. Hunting, particularly hunting Sika has been a passion of Keith’s from a very young age. His love of the outdoors and thrill of the stalk is infectious. As Keith says the challenge of guiding a hunter on a wily Sika is a very special experience.
Andrew Scurr
Andrew hails from Wanaka where his passion for farming, hunting, fishing and travel steered him in the direction of vet school. Having returned from a locum stint in the UK Andrew settled with his wife Sarah and family in Taupo. Andrew manages to combine guiding during the season with his career as a vet.
