Bring your own or save the hassle and rent one of ours for US$100
Many of our hunters prefer to rent firearms rather than travel with them. We offer a selection of rifles from .270, plus a range of 30 caliber firearms all with excellent quality optics. Your guide will carry a spotting scope, but you will need to bring binoculars.
However, it is not difficult to bring conventional sporting rifles into New Zealand. A firearms license and import permit are available at the point of entry into the country. You must fill out an online application no less than ONE MONTH before you arrive in New Zealand. Click here to fill out your online application with NZ Police

You will need a copy of your NZ gun permit when you arrive at Auckland airport. You must declare your firearm when you arrive and proceed to the police desk in the arrival hall. NOTE - If your baggage is missing upon arrival at Auckland Airport it is CRITICAL that you still take the permit and clear your firearms with the police so that your firearms may be forwarded on to Alpine Hunting.

If you applied for a visitor firearms license and did not apply to bring firearms with you as part of your application, then you will not be able to bring any firearms into New Zealand with you.
