Thank you!! This has been a wonderful father/son trip to an incredible island. Your service and hospitality have made it truly enjoyable! The family touches make it feel like hunting camp at home. When you are in the States come see us for a duck hunt and breakfast!

Thank you! What a blast. Me and my Dad were expecting a fun hunt and we got 10X what we were expecting. We ended up shooting two red stags each and couldn't be happier. We were nervous coming here to bow hunt but it worked out great! Brent and the guys didn't give up until we had our stags! What a great experience and we will come back!

Wow! What an amazing time we had here at Mountain Hunters NZ! Wendy was such a kind host and amazing cook, every meal was perfect! Jay, Jesse and Brent made our hunt exceptional. We had the most fun hunting and sightseeing each day. The cabins were cozy and comfortable! We felt like family and were welcomed at every moment of the trip. I loved each and every minute here and can't wait to come back. Thank you kindly,

Had an awesome experience hunting and spending time on your beautiful ranch. The quality of game and scenery were unlike anything I've seen elsewhere. I totally felt like part of the family during my stay, from the delicious home cooked meals to the 'make yourself at home' atmosphere. Jesse and Jay are very hardworking fellows and very professional. I hope to come back soon with my son and hunt for some red stags. I couldn't have dreamed of a better experience. Thanks a bunch.

Brent, finally back in the states. I wanted to thank you for the experience of New Zealand. The guys you have working for you especially Jesse are truly a great addition to the camp. The professionalism and patience they have are truly what makes a great hunt. Your mom did not help me loose any weight either! She is a great cook. I truly enjoyed spending the afternoon with your Dad! We had a great time together. Truly a great experience for me!!!!!

Had a hunting adventure, once in a life time. Enjoyed everything from hunt, guides and meals. Best red stags in the world. Expect Hamilton and I sometime in the future. Thanks for everything.

Dear Santa,
I don't need anything else for Christmas. I have had an excellent trip and seen more world class trophies than ever before. The Moody's have been the most gracious hosts and shown us the beautiful Island they call home. I hope to return for more trophies in the future. Thank you Moody's for a trip of a lifetime.
P.S. The elk here would make Rudolf tremble!
— Saenger, Jessica and Atlas Ellis, TX, 11 April 2018
Thank you to the whole crew! You all made me feel so at home and must comment on the young men in your operation as they were happy and so respectful was a joy to spend the time. Please never loose sight of the wonderful, beautiful land you all live in so grand. The animals and operation are truly top notch and a great fit for this stage in my life. First time on this type of hunt and was past all of my expectations. Somewhere in the future I will make the trip back. Until then, thank you all!
— Gerald Seager, MI, 4 April 2018
You guys are such an amazing group of people! It was such an honor to get to know all of you. Thanks for the great hunt and Wendy thanks for the great eats!! We will miss you guys and see you as soon as possible.
— Amy and Nolan Bauer, AZ, 4 April 2018
Thank you, thank you to the Moody family. Brent, Adrian and Wendy. We came to New Zealand to see red stags and saw so much more than anticipated. LOTS of animals each day with a great hunt for 'the one'! Brent you're a wonderful guide and person, thank you so much for all your efforts. Adrian and Wendy your hospitality was wonderful. We certainly enjoyed our 5 days.
— Tony and Ellen Western, 4 April 2018
I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful hunt and vacation. Your property, operation and wildlife far surpass any expectations I had for any hunt. I felt like I was staying and hunting with old friends that I've known for a lifetime. The quality and quantity of animals on your ranch are second to none. You have a very special place here and a very special group of people. Thanks you so much for everything. I hate to leave this place and feel like I'm leaving friends behind. I hope to return with my daughters someday soon. I wish you the best until we meet again. I'll miss your cooking Wendy.

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.
— Orie Matthew, TX, 26 March 2018
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.
