Base Mountain Hunters was great and my guides and the hospitality was first class. This was my first international hunt and was first class. The Moody's made me feel at home and part the their family. I hope I will be able to return some time in the future.
Words cannot adequately portray what a wonderful experience spending nearly a week with the Moody family during the roar of the red stag on their family farm. Mountain Hunters is a first class operation. The Moody family makes you feel part of their family from the moment you get here. The food is outstanding and the Moody's let you have the feel of living 'off the land' from fresh vegetables, fruits and eggs. Even fish from the sea was a treat. The guides Jay and Jessie were great and make me feel as though I have 2 new friends. A Plus. High Gold. Can't say enough good things.
This was the most amazing trip I've ever been on. It was everything I could ever imagine! From the hunting to the food, everything was 1st CLASS. Thank you so much. I will be back.
As another great hunt has come to an end I am extremely grateful. The hospitality and meals was outstanding. You guys are the best and just wonderful to hang out with. I am looking forward to our next visit. I truly hope you can be our guests in Sweden someday, we would really love to have you.
Thanks, Thanks, Thanks for an amazing experience! Thanks for taking us into your warm and beautiful home and giving us the opportunity (rare) to get to know the real New Zealand. Wonderful, warm, modest, welcoming people. We learned to know you and your country through you as no tourist will ever do. I had a lot of questions, what you do in case of emergency or how you do shopping so far from town, what you do with children, and so that with a lot of hard work and creative thinking you can manage yourself with joy and fun. The farm is beautiful and is run very effectively by you: egg and meat from the chicken, vegetables from the garden, meat from the hunting, flowers everywhere and good relation with other farmers. Everything was wonderful. Thanks Brent for a wonderful satisfying hunt. You succeeded to make Shmuel's wishes. Thanks Wendy and Adrian for opening your home to us. Thanks Matt and Jesse that were partners to all of it. Our heart and home will be forever open for you when and if you decide to come and visit Israel.
This was truly the most amazing adventure that Will and I have ever had!! Everything from the food, accommodations, hospitality, hunting and exploring, exceeded ALL expectations. We will most definitely be back!! We can't thank you enough for your kindness and making us feel so welcome. Can't wait for next time.
I've been hunting since I was 4 years old and this by far was the best hunt I have ever been on. The Moody family is the best, they make you feel like you are part of their family. I will be back!
This by far has been the best hunting trip I've ever been on. Wendy is an excellent cook and everyone makes you feel at home. The guides are very professional, especially Jessie. And Brent ties it all together for a great time. The quality of animals were exceptional. A lot of hunts don't live up to the advertising but there is nothing missing here. Would recommend this outfitter to anyone. Warren.
I had a wonderful time. We got to go shopping, beach walking and hunting. Adrienne is a great guide for non hunters and Wendy a wonderful hostess. We would love to come back again. Gayle.
An incredibly wonderful experience in every way! Spectacular scenery, excellent hunting, most delicious food and the nicest people on earth! Matt, our guide, went out of his way to give the 'non hunter' a taste of New Zealand wildlife photo opportunities along with grand shooting opportunities for the hunter. Wendy went far above and beyond in providing options for my special dietary needs, especially desserts :) An unexpected treat! And all set in the most beautiful country, overall, I've ever been to. I feel we've made friends for life who are welcome to come to Flagstaff, AZ to visit anytime. Highly recommended. Thank you Brent, Wendy, Adrian, Matt and Jesse and the other Adrienne too!!
I have been so amazed at all the amazing sights, wildlife, food and spending time at camp with all the crew. I have been on numerous out of state or country hunts. I honestly can say I have been well pleased with all aspects of this hunt. Actually the quality of animals, the challenge not too easy, yet the right amount of effort to bag the giants. I have taken virtually every big game animal in North America, but the stag I got here is more impressive than any trophy I have - several of which are record book animals. Having been on so many hunts and knowing what to expect, I was impressed that Mountain Hunters exceeded my expectations in every area. I can't believe I waited until 60 years old to come here. The goat hunt was awesome. I was so glad to have fulfilled another bucket list item of taking these impressive animals with archery equipment. This is a well run outfit and a wonderful family. Matt and Jesse are great guides in addition to the great job Brent does.
The hunt was beyond my expectation. We could find a lot of species, red deer, fallow deer, rusa deer, rabbit, goats and ram in their mountain field. Brent taught me how to find and distinguish them by binoculars. I cannot forget my exciting moment of sneaking up behind our target and pull the trigger.
All meals were also special and made me full stomach every time . One morning, Brent and I shot a turkey and we ate that in diner. The words is not enough to explain the wonderful taste.
I would like to express my gratitude to Brent and Adrian. I could enjoy the difference of two cultures.They made my first time of New Zealand really special.
Mata itsuka. (See you again someday)

This stop was easily the highlight of my time here in NZ. I look forward to coming back with my family. This feels like a home away from home. Superb hospitality and fantastic hunting!

Incredible experience. Went way above and beyond to make it a wonderful trip and hunting experience. I came along with my husband, not planning to hunt, but quickly changed my mind. Loved the friendly atmosphere and the amazing scenery.

Mountain Hunters New Zealand completely exceeded every expectation that we had. Truly one of the most amazing hunts we have been on. From the quality of the animals, to the physical hunts themselves, to the generosity and hospitality of everyone. Taking a trophy of a lifetime at the top of a mountain, in New Zealand with your son words can not describe it. We have already started planning our 2nd visit to hunt the south and north islands with Brent and team. Can't wait to come back!!! Thank you Brent, Wendy, Adrian and Josh you are the BEST!!!
Thank you for an amazing hunt! I'm definitely coming back. One of my favorite trips ever! If you guys ever wanna hunt whitetail, we have to much in Chicago, you guys are always welcome. Thank you guys again.

Thank you so much for everything! It was an incredible and unforgettable experience. This was my first time in New Zealand, first time hunting deer, or any big game. The scenery is unbelievable and absolutely breathtaking. The stags were very beautiful and extremely gorgeous. The food was incredibly delicious be that breakfast, lunch or dinner. However the best part of my experience, that which made it truly great, was definitely all of you. You were all unbelievably kind, truly making this experience unforgettable. Wendy can easily be called one of the nicest people I have ever met, in addition to being a phenomenal cook. Josh has an amazingly keen eye, being able to spot one little black duck 200 meters away. Brent has incredible patience being able to put up with us and amazing strength and physical stamina, in addition to his good humor and his kind demeanor. Thank you all so much for everything!

I bought my two sons (great young men) to New Zealand to hunt red stag. We were lead to Mountain Hunters by a friend of mine from the States. The hunting, accommodations and food were all and more than we could have hoped for or expected. Staff of Mountain Hunters were excellent and gracious. Wonderful trip.

Adrian, Wendy and Brent,
Thanks for the incredible time! The food, hospitality and scenery has been truly spectacular. You have a very special place here and are truly blessed. Thanks again Adrian for being patient with me losing my phone. I will be back in a couple of years to get my stag.
Thanks again, Jason Zakrzewski, MN
The whole crew, Brent, the guides, Wendy and Adrian, all work very hard to make the trip successful. The trip was everything that we hoped it would be. Very impressed with the numbers and quality of the animals. I'm going back, bringing my wife and chasing a Tahr.
Adrian, Wendy Brent and Guys,
