Working hard to get results are the hallmark of Gerald & Sue Telford, Fishing & Hunting. We are New Zealand’s premier guiding service for rifle hunting, bowhunting and flyfishing. Our tailor made hunting and fishing packages based in Wanaka in the magnificent South Island are backed by more than 30 years guiding experience.
We’re passionate outdoors people and conservationists who strongly promote a Free Range – Fair Chase hunting philosophy and catch and release trout fishing – apart from selecting the tastiest one to be cooked up that night of course!
Your partner or family will also enjoy the trip of a lifetime with a visit to our part of the world. Wanaka has a huge range of outdoor activities using the lakes, rivers and mountains as well as wine tours, spa treatments… and let’s not forget a bit of retail therapy!
The experience was a great balance of hunting, relaxation, and fellowship. Especially for the English speaking client, this is a very user friendly destination. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy all New Zealand and what the outfitter have to offer. Not only did I hunt with the outfitter but also enjoyed some tremendous trout fishing. This will be a hunt with no regrets.
I want to thank you two for everything you did on our recent Stag and sheep hunt to make it very successful and give me the chance to mark this off my ” Bucket List”. You two are GREAT people that have a successful business and you know how to treat people. Tony and Duncan are GREAT guides and you are lucky they are working for you and Sue. I have had a lot of questions about our trip to New Zealand and hopefully this leads to more business for you!!!!!!!
Just want to say thanks for a wonderful hunt and a great experience in the beautiful area of Wanaka and Lake Hawea. The accommodations were fantastic, the meals at your house were amazing and Tony and Duncan were fantastic to hunt with. Certainly a hunt of a lifetime for us, and the fact that we all hunted together made it even more special. Will highly recommend you to anyone we talk to that is interested in hunting in NZ for Red Stag, Fallow buck, Chamois or Tahr. I think Mark will be back for his Tahr and hope Liam and I can come back and shoot a Tahr and a Fallow Buck as well. Thanks again, you run a great operation with great guides. We had so much fun, and Liam can’t stop talking about it (imagine that !)
I had an outstanding hunt with Gerald and Sue. Along with great guiding, great trophies and great scenery, the Telfords are great people and hosts. I have bowhunted much of North America and South Africa and I know a great hunt and experience when I have had one. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the hunting and the excursions in beautiful Wanaka with Sue. The flight to the coast with Sue as pilot was breathtaking and much appreciated and enjoyed. The stags were majestic and magnificent. Thank you Gerald and Sue for an adventure my wife and I will never forget. Please be sure I am on your reference list.
Our trip to New Zealand was the most unexpected fabulous trip that I have ever been on! I truly thought I’d be hanging out doing a lot of book reading while Brian was off hunting. I think that I’m the one who had the most fun! You truly filled my week
We look forward to helping create one of your most memorable New Zealand hunting experiences ever.
