Undoubtedly one of New Zealand's most experienced professional hunting guides. Successfully guiding hunters since the late 17th century, Ian is best known for his happy, easy-going manner and his brilliant reputation as a 'people-person.'
You may have seen him in years gone by, when he was the Head Guide for one of New Zealand's busiest outfitters. He no longer wanted to work in crowded camps so has been operating independently since 2009, and is dedicated to delivering safe and fun hunting adventures in uncrowded hunting environments where we can deliver a more personalised level of comfort and service.
Over the years, Ian has guided on several World Record Red Stag, World Record Buffalo and numerous other top ten trophies. Can he do it again? You bet! But we're not going to get carried away tossing the 'fancy record salad' because quite frankly, he's more about discovering what good things he can do for you.
