“Hi, I am from Missouri, the heartland of the US. I had never hunted before in my life and I had never been to NZ. The entire trip was magical. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Aaron, his wife Carla, and all of the guides. They welcomed us at the airport as though we were old friends. I decided to tag along with some friends to NZ to “watch” them hunt because I love to hike. Our first time out, we saw many trophy animals but we waited for the perfect one. After the leader of our group got a magnificent red, I was hooked.
The next day, I went out in search of my first big game animal. After the better part of a day hiking the glorious NZ countryside, getting some shooting pointers, and visiting with my personal guide Scott, we saw my chocolate Fallow. He was stunning! We crept up the ridgeline, and with Scott’s calm coaching, the fallow dropped in one shot at 300 yards. What a thrill! Aaron and his crew are fantastic. Hunting, trout fishing or hiking New Zealand, my first hunting trip was truly a trip of a lifetime!”
