Outback Hunting is owned and operated by Dave and Hayley Campbell. We pride ourselves for being a leader in New Zealand for foot hunting, specializing in Tahr, Chamois, Red Stag, Fallow and Whitetail. Since Outback Hunting has been in business we have had a 100% success rate in getting our clients top game trophy animals.
We set ourselves apart from other outfitters by hunting exclusively on foot, eliminating the cost of a helicopter. Dave is arguable one of New Zealand’s top alpine hunters, with over 40 years hunting experience on alpine animals.
My career started as a government cruller in the late 70's on red deer and goats in the Dart river area. Then I moved up to South Canterbury area to cull Tahr. I did that for 8 years. I started guiding back in 2004, since then I have guided all over New Zealand and in Australia and the USA on a vast range of animals.
Hayley and I live close to Geraldine, a small rural town 1 ½ hour’s drive from Christchurch city.
Hayley has worked in the hospitality industry for many years and will make sure you are well looked after. All of our hunter’s stay with us in our recently built home which is comfortable with a beautiful rural outlook; we enjoy our hunter’s staying with us, and have built some great friendship’s over the years from this. We cater for small groups to give a more personalised hunting experience.
Because we offer great hunting at very affordable prices, we have return hunters every year.
Most of our hunts are day trips from home unless the overnight option is requested. There is nothing like coming home to a nice hot shower, cold beer and home cooked meal, then after a good night’s sleep do all over again the next day. Most of our hunts start 1hours drive from home; we have access to two of the best private land properties in the South Island each year we take several exceptional trophies from these.
Out back hunting is all Free Range, Fair Chase, Wildness, Private Property or Estate hunts if required. No helicopters used unless requested, they are spot and stalk hunts. This is another reason we can keep our prices so competitive. Every year Outback Hunting has shot at least two record book animals we aim to get our clients quality not quantity.
