James Cagney's New Zealand Hunting Adventures

James Cagney's New Zealand Hunting Adventures

We are a family run operation based at Lake Coleridge in the iconic Rakaia Valley in the centre of New Zealand's South Island High Country. We provide a friendly and relaxed, professional service specialising in high quality - free range wilderness hunts in some of New Zealand's most spectacular mountain country. We are passionate about hunting - We understand that the experience - the hunt - is just as important as a quality trophy. We have private wilderness land hunting partnerships and hold concessions for some of New Zealand's best game lands. Our base at Lake Coleridge in the heart of New Zealand's South Island mountains places us on the doorstep of our hunting areas in the Canterbury High Country on the eastern side of the Southern Alps and our West Coast hunting areas on the western side of the Southern Alps. We are in the heart of New Zealand's tahr, chamois and wild red stag country. With a lifetime of hunting and outdoor experience, James has the credentials and experience to ensure that you are 'in good hands'.

Why hunt with us?

Genuine Free-Range Wilderness Hunts - Our Guarantee - No high fences - No farm bred animals - we hunt only genuine wild populations.

We use only the best helicopter operators - highly experienced professionals with modern, well maintained aircraft and extensive mountain flying experience.

Quality Guides - Highly experienced in mountain hunting and guiding in New Zealand and North America. Fully and widely trained and well equipped. James developed and runs the 'Professional Hunter Academy' - Guide Training Program for the New Zealand Professional Hunting Guides Association. The Training Academy is seperate from our guiding operation.

The Best Private Hunting Areas - We believe our private wilderness free range hunting areas are 'second to none' - with magnificent wilderness country, high quality genuine free range game herds, quality accommodation and an unmatched hunting experience.

Location - We are situated only 1 hour and 10 minutes drive from Christchurch International Airport. Our Lodge and hunting area is in the heart of New Zealand's South Island prime mountain hunting country.

Quality and Professionalism - We strive to be New Zealand's premier free range hunting outfit. When you compare our prices you will see that our prices are competitive, but not the cheapest in the market. This is because it costs us a little more to outfit our high-end free range hunts. It costs us a bit more for our partnership arrangements with the best private hunting areas. We don't strive to be the cheapest - we strive to be the best !

FUN !! - You'll have fun with us! We pride ourselves on our professionalism, but we also pride ourselves on our sense of fun. Our lodge and our camps have a relaxed, friendly, family approach. I hope you like fun and plenty of laughs - we do !

We're in this game for the right reasons - To us this is a whole lot more than just a business - hunting is our life. We live for hunting and enjoy nothing more than sharing great adventures, great times and creating life long memories with like minded hunters from around the world. Many of our hunters have become dear friends. As hunters, we share a strong and common bond. Genuine free range hunting is our true passion - truly wild places and truly wild animals.
