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.

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 Group,
Thank you for the wonderful time spent in New Zealand. You guys made this place feel like home with your hospitality and kindness. I also want to give Josh a special thanks for putting up with me and helping me chase that stag for two days. It was a first bow kill that I will never forget.
Thanks so much, Travis Torkelson, MN

Adrian, Wendy and Brent,
Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and hunt of a lifetime. My son and I had the best experience - everything you promised and then some. "Mum's" cooking was phenomenal. Please let us know if you ever make it to Florida, we'd love to share some good ol' southern hospitality!
Rick and Ricky Thames, Jacksonville, Florida
What a wonderful time we had with your family. The food and hospitality was amazing. Thank you Brent for an awesome hunting experience. Wendy was amazing and terrific with MJ. We appreciate your kindness and patience with her. She had a trip of a lifetime. The day trips were wonderful and we loved the personal tours of the beaches and towns. We will always remember this as one of our best trips!
Thanks for everything, The Ralstons. Mark, Michelle and MJ
Dear Brent, Wendy, Josh and Adrian,

Take care, Wiaan, Fritz, Tomas and Miquel
Brent, Wendy, Adrian, Josh and Ollie,
Thank you for everything that you have done to make our trip a truly once in a lifetime trip. It doesn't take long to see that you understand what is important. The awesome trophies are great but the opportunity to share the experience with our sons and friends is what life is all about. We will call you our good friends forever.

We've had a marvelous time here hunting, eating, touring and the like. Found the animal selection, quality and variety unmatched. We were able to take exactly what we wanted in bronze stag, typical fallow and Jill took a great ram. This should be a 'bucket list' destination for any hunter and his/her family. Great people, places, food and a home-like atmosphere equate to a marvelous experience.

Excellent start with Henry (Hank) Shelton of Charlottesville, Virginia arriving in Wellington for 8th hunt with Adrian Moody since 1992. 3 deer, 2 reds and 1 fallow deer in 4 shots. Will be enjoyed by NZ friends and family around the Bay of Plenty. The whole whanau appreciate the skills, hospitality and aroha of the Moody whanau over many years.
Arohanui and all the good things to y'all,
