Doddsy’s Hunting provides a premier New Zealand hunting experience. We have access to some of New Zealand’s best trophy hunting terrain and a world class hunting guide to help you explore the country.
We call it an ‘experience’ because there’s so much more to it than just a hunting trip, your adventure will include good old Kiwi family hospitality and an endless list of non-hunting activities. This is all made possible due to our location in Lake Hawea, only a short drive from the popular Lake Wanaka Resort and Queenstown, the bustling adventure capital of NZ.
Barry Dodds (Doddsy) has been hunting all of his life; he’s been a professional guide around the region for years and has also hunted throughout Australia and South Africa - so he knows a thing or two about stalking trophy animals.
To experience New Zealand hunting at its best, get in contact with Doddsy. He can take you on the trip of a life time, stalking the internationally famous red stag, or his favourite hunting prey – the Tahr. Both are in abundance right on the doorstep of his Hawea homestead.
Barry and Tony Dodds are experienced and passionate hunters who have been hunting their entire lives.

Our guests have the option of two types of accommodation at our Hawea homestead. Either a modern two bedroom apartment, or a double bedroom with an ensuite within the homestead.
