FIRST TIME HUNTING WITH SHAUN MONK
For many kiwi people, hunting is a way of life. It’s all about being out in the hills, facing the elements of nature, walking the hard yards to test yourself against cunning game animals with the hope of gathering your own free-range meat and re-telling the tales around a campfire.
Now you can have this experience too!
Your hunting coach ‘Shaun Monk’ has lived the hunter’s lifestyle since childhood and will show you how to get into “the game zone” and bring the meat back to camp.
What to expect
Trips are fully guided and include four wheel driving, camping, hiking, bush craft, mountain safety and firearms practice. You don’t need a firearms licence or any previous experience. You just have to be willing to walk some hills and become part of nature.
Meals, accommodation and hunting equipment provided.
What to bring
Snacks and drinks, insect repellent (for sand-flies and mosquitos), hiking boots (preferably with gaiters), warm clothing layers including beanie and gloves, weather proof jacket and over trousers (optional), sun protection including sunscreen, cap or hat, headlamp and spare batteries, bathroom towel and personal effects, hiking pack, day pack, camera and end of day liquid refreshments.
