The Personal Touch

Owner, Operator, and Outfitter Barry Dodds lives to share New Zealand with clients so much that he guides most of the clients himself.  On the rare occasion he is unavailable, one of his children grab the reigns and guide the hunters.  This truly is a family business and while you'll arrive as a client, you'll leave a member of the Dodds family.

Exceptional Accommodations

Doddsy's Hunting Experience is just that, an experience.  You'll have all the amenities of home to include the home cooked meals.  You'll find yourself wanting to extend your stay and explore more of New Zealand after your hunt ends!
