Hunting Information

Peel Forest Safaris hunt across several million acres of private and public land, from big forested high fenced game estates through to free range, rugged mountainous high alpine terrain. By having sole rights to a range of private land we are able to select a hunt that best caters to your fitness and hunting needs. It also ensures you’re hunting quality animals, resulting in a world class hunt.

Try a free range walk up hunt or helicopter drop off, with a spike camp set up in our beautiful Southern Alps. Once the animals are harvested, the helicopter is just a satellite phone call away!
