The French-speaking island of New Caledonia offers one of the
most enjoyable and exotic hunting experiences in the South Pacific,
with the largest huntable population of Javan rusa deer in the
world. We take several record-book trophies every year, and you
will have a chance to look over dozens of trophy-quality animals.
We maintain exclusive hunting rights on
several private concessions that offer a chance at an outstanding
head. Beware some of the "cheap" New Caledonia hunts
you may encounter!
New Caledonia allows you to combine superb
hunting with the delights of a tropical island, making it an
ideal destination for couples.
We hunt from July into October. You can
expect the days to be warm, sometimes hot, and the evenings pleasant.
Days are generally sunny, with occasional brief afternoon showers.
French is spoken throughout New Caledonia, but
English is common. You will find New Caledonians to be extremely
friendly and helpful.
Accommodations are in comfortable resorts
or hotels. Upgrades to world-class seaside resorts are possible
if you wish. The island has outstanding diving, snorkeling, golf
and beaches. Noumea, its cosmopolitan capital city, offers great
French cuisine, fine hotels and great shopping.
Most airline connections to New Caledonia
are through Auckland, New Zealand, so you can easily combine
a New Zealand hunt with a week in New Caledonia.

Please note that New Caledonia is very
touchy about firearms and insurance. Refer to our "general
information" page for details.
