Bull Tahr with 13″ Horns – Lake Hawea

Martin Mason of Denmark optimised his wilderness hunt taking two nine year old bull tahr and one nice chamois. The biggest bull carried extremely heavy horns over 13 inches in length, with 10 inch bases. The body size of this animal is massive, only the western side of the Southern Alps has the appropriate feed to grow animals so big. This bull would have been interesting to hang up on the scales, estimated to be in access of 350 pounds. Note Martins second bull also nine years old, but a lot smaller in horn and body size. Great value wilderness hunting with no trophy fees. At Lake Hawea Hunting Safaris we’re having our busiest season yet, with many outfitters well back on client numbers for the 2nd year in a row, our dedication to free-range hunting and our clients is now showing through.

I'm an avid hunter from Portland, Oregon, and I've been hunting since I was 8 years old. I've run a wholesale travel business for New Zealand, Australia, Tahiti, Fiji, and the Cook Islands for 30 years. I live (and hunt and fish) in Portland, Oregon.
