Free Range Wild Animals ONLY !!

Wild Places, Wild Game, New Zealand offers a free range hunting experience unlike any others, run by Simon and his family. Based in the top of the South Island of New Zealand, our team are country characters with a passion for hunting, having a good time and making dreams come true. We offer hunts throughout the Tasman, Marlborough, Canterbury, and West Coast regions for a variety of New Zealand’s big game species including the world renowned Red Stag and Chamois. We are genuine people, 100% focused on showing you a great time and have great private wilderness land, hunting partnerships and have concessions for some exceptional public land. We are a small hunting business dedicated to you (our clients) while you are hunting with us. Every animal we hunt is different we believe, as is every hunter we guide, so we tailor trips to your hunting needs and methods. We would appreciate the opportunity to share our slice of paradise.


"Simon was accommodating all the way around. I was 5 months pregnant so he checked in often on how I was feeling. His hunting style and decision making was spot on for every scenario. This was my first guided hunt and I couldn't have been happier! Em was also amazing. The cooking was phenominal and she made sure we were always well fed and hydrated all day. Five stars in every catagory for WPWG." Amber

"10 out of 10 all the way around . From the amount of animals we seen and the quality of them, to the amazing food. Would highly reccommend, and will definately be going back" Jesse

"In March of 2019 I made a return trip to New Zealand for another Red Stag hunt with Simon and had an exceptional experience with a successful hunt early in my hunt.  I greatly enjoyed my grandfather making the trip with me to share in this life changing experience.  Simons unmatched talent for making authentic adventures happen will undoubtably bring me back to New Zealand for a hunt in the near future." Tyler 2018 and 2019

"Good food, good people and plenty of animals.  It's my second hunt with Wild Places Wild Game.  I think I will be back again"  Adam 2018 and 2019
