Chamois
Wild Pigs


Wild pigs attract a vast crowd of keen New Zealand hunters. Accompanied by their trusty pig dogs, they set out into the bush with only a knife and a keen spirit. A hunt that involves quite a bit of adrenalin! The Wild Pig (Captain Cooker) first got released by Captain James Cook back in 1773, with numerous releases to follow. Today the wild pig is spread throughout New Zealand and basically every day during the 365 days a year is a good day to hunt a boar. We have contacts to a few pig hunters which still hunt this “medieval” style with a knife.

Feel free to Enquire about pig hunting.
