Alongside one of New Zealand’s most famous trout streams Poronui is the ultimate North Island experience. This area was the site of the first release of sika deer back in 1905; a decade ago I hunted there for free-range sika deer, and it remains the best area for sika…but that’s not all. The area holds red stag, rusa, sambar, fallow deer and more. We recently revisited Poronui, and it remains one of New Zealand’s premier destinations. Enjoy luxury accommodations at The Lodge or Blake House…or rough it at their tented Safari Camp. In addition to great hunting and world class fly fishing Poronui is a fantastic vacation getaway for couples, families, and non-hunters, with a full range of options including horse trekking and riding lessons, mountain biking, sporting clays, field archery, heli hiking, wine tours, even massages and beauty treatments for the ladies. When I first visited Poronui I knew I’d found a very special place…and it remains so today!
