Your Poronui 4-night guided red stag hunt

There is a dimension to the hunting experience at Poronui that sets it apart. The prestigious, private 16,000-acre property offers an isolated and unspoiled experience for hunting. Poronui’s varied landscape provides a combination of good cover for the animals and wide-open vistas for Red Stags to dominate. Hunting is using the traditional spot and stalk method and your guide will ensure plenty of opportunities to secure the trophy of your dreams.
