Napier Fieldmaster BOB SPAIN recounts his last Tahr Hunt in New Zealand’s South Island.
Tahr were first introduced into NZ by their government in 1904, a gift from the Duke of Bedford of just 13 animals from his herd at Woburn abbey.
They are now considered a major pest and are actively culled by hunters and

It’s a world away from most UK hunters both in distance and endeavour, a tough animal in a tough terrain hunted by tough hunters. Fantastic to read, Thanks so much Bob
