In today’s edition of The Rich Outdoors, I sit down with the always knowledgeable Ryan Lampers to talk about something I have always been interested in but have yet to pull the trigger on, DIY New Zealand hunting. Last year Ryan and Brian Call journeyed all the way to New Zealand to hunt Tahr in a place they had never stepped foot in. This is one of those hunts that are actually very affordable and in this podcast, we break down exactly how to get it done without paying a guide or outfitter to hold your hand. Ryan is one of the best adventure hunters I know and not only do we break down NZ but this episode really does show you how to breakdown and plan really and bug adventure hunt.
This podcast is brought to you by On X maps and goHUNT.com hands down the most important tools for planning hunts for pretty much anywhere but New Zealand. On a serious note, Ryan and I both spend hours upon hours looking and both of these tools as we plan every one of our elk, deer, and even bear hunts.
