New Zealand tahr hunting
Bull tahr is a challenging trophy to hunt

The tahr or Himalayan mountain goat has made the central Southern Alps of New Zealand its home since its introduction in the early 1900s. Renowned for their strength and stamina, the bull tahr is a challenging trophy to hunt. Large bulls reach 300lbs in weight and are immensely powerful.

Hunts are carried out using spot and stalk techniques, glassing animals from a distance before stalking in on foot. Depending on your preference, access can be by 4WD and walk, or helicopter.

Tahr seasonal availability

May is the tahr rut period, and they make a spectacular trophy at this time of the year due to their big capes and silvery mane.
