What Client’s Say
I stayed on the Mainland a few more days, soaking up the scenery, hospitality and excitement of NZ. Hunting with Four Seasons Safaris was a great experience in which was way beyond and above what I had anticipated. In addition to all the memories, I have some wonderful, new friends in Shane Johnston and his Four Seasons team. I’m going back.
What a great time. Scenery, people, accomodations, food and the hunting were all wonderful. It’s a long way to go, but worth every mile. I brought my wife and she had a wonderful time too. Shane and Jim run a first class operation and will be sure that your every need is met.
Shane and his team set up an outstanding 4 day hunt for me and my 11 year old son. The hunting was simply awesome! The setting supreme. The food and lodging great. Jim did a superb job as our guide, and took extra time and patience to work with my son on his shooting, not to mention hunting some hares and possum. I would definitely hunt with Shane and Jim again and have recommended them to others. A great hunt to take the wife and/or kids along.
Our Guide, Jim Gibson, was outstanding. He has a great sense of humor, didn’t push us to shoot stags that we didn’t want to and was ready to go when we found the right stag for us. He was very kind, thoughtful and a pretty good cook. I did have to beg him to let me wash the dishes at the cabin after he spent all day hunting with us, hauling our capes out and then cooking for us. I would recommend Four Seasons Stag hunts to anyone that has a Red Stag on their bucket list.
Four Seasons was highly recommended to me several years ago as the best outfitter in New Zeland for Red stag, tahr and chamois. I recently completed a hunt with Four Seasons and was highly impressed with attention to my desires for an exciting hunt. Every aspect of the hunt was thrilling especially the hunt for tahr in the Southern Alps. Hunters will be very pleased with Four Season.
I hunted Red Stag, Chamois, and Tahr with Shane at Four Seasons Safaris. I was there with my wife and 5 Children we had a wonderful experience. I was successful in harvesting all three trophies and my wife nad kids love the helicopter tours and Jet Boat Ride. Christine and Robbie were fantastic, The service was great and the food was as good as any fine restaurant. We had a great time.
My son and I truly had a memorable experience with Four Seasons Safaris, from jet boating in the Rakaia Gorge to taking a helicopter into the Southern Alps! We had a great hunt for tahr, chamois and red stag. Four Seasons is 5 star in our book!
My son in law and I had a great time with Shane and the crew. This was my forth hunt with Shane so you know how I feel about him. Jim guided me to some excellent free range sika hunting on the North Island and then Jim got my son in law his first stag at Stravon. A great trip with great people in a beautiful locale.
Our guide was Shane Johnston, hunt dates 6/5 – 6/9, 2013. My three sons and I hunted chamois, tahr, and red stag in New Zealand with rifles. The animals were large with one tahr having record size potential. This was a Hard difficulty level hunt. Our guide was in the “best ever” category along with the quality of equipment used. The quality of the accomodations, food, and tropy prep were good. Overall I was very, very satisfied
We were with Jim for 3 weeks on our hunt. Jim proved to be the perfect guide for us. He went above and beyond. He has a great personality, is a pretty darn good cook, has patience, and is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We took 7 trophies on the duration of our trip, exploring both the North and South Island. We enjoyed a helicopter ride around Mt. Cook, took a jet boat ride, meet some amazingly nice people, all the while seeing gorgeous countryside. We do at least 2 safaris a year and this quite possibly could be the best we have been on.
