Gold Medal Shed Hunt

Lake Hawea Hunting Safaris: Gold Medal Shed Hunt - New Zealand hunting packages by Sunspots Safaris   Chris McCarthy of Lake Hawea Hunting Safaris has made a name for himself in the Free Range hunting circles by getting his clients into some of the best private locations in the South Island of New Zealand.

There is one thing that New Zealand has no shortage of and that is huge red deer! They cast their antlers every year, and each fall there is an incredible opportunity to collect some of these antlers for your trophy room at a fraction of the cost of actually shooting the huge red stag.
