Mark McGlashan - Head Hunting Guide
I have been working for Poronui Hunting for more than 13 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 hunter's excitement of a once-in-a-lifetime hunt.
Darrin Bennett
Darrin started hunting with his dad and relatives when he was just five years old. They hunted red, fallow, rusa, and sika deer, and they also did a lot of pig hunting with their own dogs. Darrin enjoys seeing the pleasure clients experience while hunting at Poronui and, for many, securing their trophy of a lifetime. When Darrin’s not hunting, he enjoys sea and freshwater fishing, sea diving, and tramping.
Marc Clinch
I am very passionate about the outdoors. I've been hunting since I was knee high to a grasshopper. My favorite deer to hunt are red stags and sika deer. Seeing the sun wake up is the best time of day for me.
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 his 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.
