My husband and I looked into a New Zealand hunt for years not being able to decide which outfitter to choose. Then we met Shane at SCI and knew we had found a perfect fit for us with Four Seasons. We were with your guide for 3 weeks on our hunt. He 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. We look forward to coming back. Thank you!

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.

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. The guide did a superb job, 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 again and have recommended them to others. A great hunt to take the wife and/or kids along.
