I have been a professional guide and hunted all over. The team at Alpine is second to none. Hunter or non-hunter alike this place will change you. Majestic animals and great people. We plan to make this a life long relationship.

We just returned from our Alpine Hunting lodge New Zealand trip. Nicki, Shane and the entire team made our trip one that we will never forget!!! I'm not a hunter but everyone else was (including my husband ). I was never bored as there is so much to do and see! You just get lost in nature! Scotty our guide is incredibly knowledgeable. The animals are HUGE and majestic .... it is breathtaking to see so many different animals grazing along the side of the mountains. Dan the chef served up gourmet meals (killer appetizers). Sophie and Nicole cracked us up :) they waited on us too much but we loved it !! and everyone got along like we had known them forever! Alpine is "Best In Class" and simply the #1 outfit in all of New Zealand .....I can't wait to go back!

Everything from the scenery, accommodations and food were wonderful. And lets not forget the hunting - just amazing! Most of all its the people that make it something to remember and that certainly is found here. We will remember this trip forever, thank you Shane and Nicki!
Joe & Carol Schultz, New Jersey
Went last March and it was amazing. Staff, food, and most importantly the hunting is second to none. You really should save your money and go to the best Stag hunting in the world instead of settling.
Chris & Karen Watkins, Mississippi
Thank you for one of the most wonderful experiences our family has ever had. The lodge is so comfortable and relaxing and all or you were so accommodating and welcoming. We had so much fun around the beautiful property an everyone was thrilled with their trophies! Nicki, I especially want to thank you for all the work you did lining us up for the rest of our trip back to Auckland. We got to do everything we wanted to do.

What a marvelous trip Sherry and I had with Alpine Hunting! A wonderful adventure of fabulous food, great accommodations, beautiful landscape and plenty of game animals. The adrenalin rush during the helicopter flight for Tahr and Chamois can not be described in words. Your staff was very professional and accommodating to everyone.
Wyatt & Sherry McGuire, Texas
Amazing. Terrific people. You feel like a family while there. Simply amazing. Have had the great pleasure to hunt many places this is by far the best!! Bring the wife. She will love it!!!
Matt Cowan, Missouri
Shane, you have developed and maintained a hunting facility that far exceeded our expectations. Nicki, your charm and hard work is a great complement to Shane. We could not have picked a better guide and companion. The warmth and companionship that we experienced made us not want to leave. We appreciate all your hard work and unparalleled hunting knowledge.
Bob & Marty Salisbury, Florida
I am still reeling from my adventure with you guys. A day has not gone by in the past month that I have not wished I was still there enjoying the slice of heaven, which is Alpine Hunting. You guys made me feel like part of the family and I so enjoyed every moment of my time with you all. This computer does not have the keys to adequately describe how great of a time I had, the hunting and the friendships I made, I will be talking about this adventure for the rest of my life.

I went with my sister and father and we had a fantastic hunt. Shane and Nicki have a beautiful lodge, great hunting areas and world class animals. I hunted with Bruce, my sister hunted with Scotty and my Dad hunted with Colin (who has since retired). They were exceptional guides of high moral character and professionalism. The hunt is as hard as you want to make it. Shane has numerous Red Stag of any class. If you want to travel by Polaris and spot and stalk that’s fine or if you want to go walk about and call in the roar that’s what they will do. NZ is a safe and wonderful country and we did not encounter any issues. Gun transfers were simple, flights were good. I’d tell you that going to the South Island and hunting Chamois/Tahr was one of the many highlights of my trip. I can tell you that alpine hunting is my choice destination to take my young family when we travel to NZ. My hunting buddy Scott and countless other friends have hunted with Shane and Nicki over the years. I have a special relationship with the entire Alpine Hunting family as they are not only friends to my family but they are family to me.

Our trip to New Zealand and Alpine Hunting was absolutely amazing. The Quinn's, Guides, Chef and cleaning staff are 5 STARS in our book. My husband and I both had great hunts, killed some amazing animals. The ranch is beautiful, the lodge is immaculate, the food and wine was perfect, it is a must to add to your Bucket List! Thank you everyone at Alpine Hunting for a trip of a life time. Love Pam and Mike Jensen PS- do not over pack your clothes, the ladies wash everyday! Make sure you take NEW/or CLEAN hunting boots ( when entering customs in New Zealand )
Mike & Pamela Jensen, Texas
Everything about my experience.. the hunting, the scenery, the food, but most of all the people, made my trip truly exceptional. The only problem is that it went by too fast! The culture of excellence that you have built with your staff will be virtually impossible to improve on. I will look forward to returning again in the future. In the meantime, I will fondly reminisce of my time spent in New Zealand.
Chris Miller, Pennsylvania
Thank you so much for your incredible hospitality. We had a wonderful time exploring this beautiful place. Everyone here has been a delight. Our every desire or need was anticipated before we could even ask. Memories were made that will be cherished forever. Thank you for providing an opportunity for us to unplug, relax and be spoilt rotten.

My brother Brandt and I had the opportunity to experience Alpine Hunting for the first time two weeks ago! To say that it is a top notch facility, staffed with very talented, kind, generous people would be an understatement. Me and my brother both had very high expectations for our trip coming to New Zealand for a hunting trip of a lifetime, and were certainly not disappointed! In fact I would dare say it exceeded our expectations in every way. The equipment the lodge and guides have is top notch, the food was amazing, the guides talent of field judging animals and over all hunting, the friendly atmosphere at meal times and leisure times, the beautiful landscape, and of course AMAZING trophy quality animals across all species offered. Hats off to Nicki, Shane, our guide and all of the other staff members that made our trip possible! Great friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime! YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH SHANE QUINN ALPINE HUNTING!!
Brayden Parry, Utah
You could not have made us feel more comfortable. Your lodge is beautiful, and all of the people working with you everyday were terrific. Although Debbie knew the lodge would be great and the food delicious, I think she was surprised and excited by the opportunity to accompany me in the field. She loved seeing all the different species and hearing the different sounds of the animals. The tour you put together was perfect and we had a great time in the last week touring around the North Island. All in all a perfect trip.

Gary and I took this trip in March 2018,we had the best time and we were made to feel at home right away, The food was excellent, and the accommodations were great. Gary was there for a red stag,he was not disappointed. Our guide was Luke,and he did a great job showing us around. Gary hunted and I relaxed.. the scenery is breath taking. Our guide took us fishing and toured us around looking at other wildlife, Gary even got a sika deer later that week. It was a 20 hour flight and Candi's first plane ride but we would do it again in a heartbeat. If you are thinking of a trip for red stag, sika or fishing we highly recommended Alpine Hunting.
