Fly from America or Australia to Christchurch New Zealand. Jonathon from Wilderness Quest will pick/up & drop/off to airport/ranch/airport or rail. I hunted in 2008 with Wilderness Quest for a "Red Deer Experience of a Life Time", The accommodation was 1st class, the meals were wonderful. My wife and daughter accompanied me...it was a real family adventure! I hunted and secured 3 SCI top 10 trophies: a Free Range Red Stag, Arapawa Ram, and NZ Wild Feral Turkey. Wilderness Quest is SCI member. I highly recommend Wilderness Quest NZ. Aussie John

Option 2: Do you have trouble with a long flight times? Then consider a short flight and stop over night in Hawaii, then onto New Zealand.
