NEW ZEALAND HAS THE WORLD'S BEST OPPORTUNITIES TO HUNT HIMALAYAN TAHR. THIS MAJESTIC BEAST TAKES PRIDE OF PLACE IN ANY TROPHY COLLECTION
The magnificent bull tahr, in full winter costume is one of the most spectacular and sought after game in animals in the South Pacific, and is undoubtedly one of the World’s most impressive horned animals.
Regarded as the King of the Mountains, the tahr inhabits the highest mountain peaks and most rugged terrain of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. Originally from Nepal and Tibet, the Himalayan Tahr was first released onto our highest mountain, Mt Cook in 1904. Tahr are prized not only for their horns, but also for their thick lion-like mane. A bull tahr can weigh as much as 300lbs has a dark body and copious amount of straw coloured hair that thickens and lengthens from late April.
New Zealand Tahr can be hunted year-round. Himalayan Tahr hunting is best here from February through November with peak rut hunting occurring May through early July. Bull Tahr are in their prized winter coats April through August and can be found in their summer coats in late October through March.
