Our hunting guides are consummate professionals, very experienced, and extremely knowledgeable about hunting and our landscape.

Being passionate hunters themselves, they enjoy nothing more than getting a hunter lined up on a great trophy. They are good company and fun to spend a day with in the hills.

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.
Jeff Bryant
I have been obsessed with hunting, fishing, and the outdoors longer than I can remember. Tagging along with my dad, at every opportunity from a very young age. Pig hunting, deer stalking, fishing, and diving have been my main recreational interests. Although I no longer have the same enthusiasm to secure animals for myself; I now get immense enjoyment from helping others secure animals. Whether it be meat for the table, or that once in a lifetime animal they have dreamed of since childhood. I especially love to hear people's story, and how they came to be on this hunt.
Vin Elliott
I live and breath hunting, whenever I'm not guiding I'll be either hunting or thinking about hunting! My favourite species to pursue are Sika Deer and Fallow Deer. I thoroughly enjoy taking clients out hunting for world class trophy animals at Poronui. My focus is not just pulling the trigger, but focusing on the journey to get to that point, it's an adventure!
