We just returned from hunting in New Zealand with Gary Herbert. It was absolutely wonderful.
The very first night Scott and I arrived, we went out and shot our Tahr's. The next day I got my Red Stag. A whopping 419!!! Thanks to Gary for being patient yet assertive with me. The following days, I got my Chamois and Scott got his Fallow Deer. No two days the same!
Several of our long term clients went with us: Roger and Nancy Krantz, Keith Brock, Blake Richards, and Becky Foxworth. They too had a wonderful time and had great hunts.
Gary, the guides and all the lodge staff were very professional, courteous, and made you feel right at home. The lodge is beautifully decorated and the layout is great. The gals do a fantastic job keeping it clean and taking care of your rooms and laundry. The shop, handling areas and grounds are kept spotless. The food was delicious. The views were breathtaking. And the animals were awesome. The helicopter? Wow. Amazing ride! The pilot that Gary uses has 30 years+ experience and his skill is unbelievable. This trip was absolutely one of the most incredible hunts we've been on.
We highly recommend hunting with Gary Herbert in New Zealand and if you have any doubt about who you should choose to be your outfitter in New Zealand, don't hesitate to talk to us.
