ANDY TAYLOR

Andy has been hunting all his life - and more than a decade of this has been spent guiding.

EWAN BLACK (EWIE)
Hunting Guide

Ewan was born and raised in Haast, the southern most settlement of the South Island's rugged West Coast, where his father hunted for meat as a main source of income.

Ewie went on to become a butcher in Lake Wanaka – which is situated in the Southern Alps where both the himalayan tahr and the alpine chamois were introduced. These two majestic animals and their habitat are what instigated Ewie’s passion for alpine hunting and ultimately his unsurpassed ability in the mountains.

Ewie has also spent time in Colorado hunting free range elk and he looks forward to guiding his clients to securing their trophy animals.

 

GRAHAM EDRIDGE
Hunting Guide

"I was brought up as a child in Zimbabwe where I started hunting, fishing and game bird shooting from the very early stages of my life. I had a passion for the wild from the start and went on hunts with my dad chasing big game in Africa. When I moved to New Zealand in 2001 I found myself fishing for trout.

I have since learned and mastered the art of fly fishing and now chase kingfish on the fly, monster rainbow trout in the Mackenzie country and have a huge passion for game bird hunting and hunting new Zealand game of which I have taught myself how to hunt. I have targeted red deer, fallow deer, tahr, chamois, wallabies and pigs.

All of which I have followed my dreams as a kid to get to where I am now. What can I say "I just love it." "It's my life"

 

CAM McKAY
Hunting Guide

Being brought up in the mountains surrounding Wanaka has given Cam an addiction to all things hunting and outdoors.

A highly experienced hunting guide and very passionate about sustainable hunting, makes Cam very selective on the animals we harvest.

Years of guiding both hunting and back country skiing is the reason for Cam's emphasis on customer service. It's not just about the animal's you'll harvest with Cam, it's about the whole journey, the laughs and the memories created from start to finish.

 

TOMAS FURI
European Marketing Manager

Tomas is a young and passionate outdoor enthusiast from central Europe. The native beech forest and beautiful Panonnian countryside was his playground during his childhood. Interested in hunting from a young age, he mastered the secrets of hunting from his Grandad and Dad as a family heritage.

Having spent some quality time in New Zealand, hunting for big game on the South Island, he joined the team at New Zealand Trophy Hunting so he could share the thrill of this country and make an adventure possible for his fellow Europeans.
