John Scurr hunting guide


After years and years of New Zealand hunting there is only one guy to hunt with. As I have said many times, if you want a big stag and anything else you wish to hunt in New Zealand, John Scurr is your man.

After extensive research in NZ Hunting, the name “John Scurr” always seemed to come up at the top of the list. My wife and I were able to bring back a room full of “memories” about exciting hunting on the south island of NZ thanks to John. We would enjoy sharing our stories about these reasonably priced adventures with anyone.

I had the pleasure of hunting with John Scurr on both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Not only is John a consummate professional he is also a pleasure to spend time with in the mountains and in camp. I wouldn’t hunt with any other PH when I return to New Zealand.

One priority hunt on my bucket list was to hunt Red Stag in New Zealand. My wife Lisa and I decided to travel to New Zealand and hunt with John Scurr. What a great decision! We both brought home trophy Red Stags as well as amazing Tahr, Chamois, Fallow Deer, South Pacific Goat and Arapawa Ram. John provided first class accommodations as we traveled through the North and South Islands of New Zealand. It was a great hunting experience and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality that John offers to his clients!

My son and I completed a Full Bag Hunt with John Scurr, and highly recommend him on all aspects of the hunt. From start to finish, Mr. Scurr had everything organized and delivered on all aspects of the hunt Personal Reputation means Everything to Mr Scurr, and his word is his Bond. Never met a finer Individual as well as Professional Hunter.
