Stefan’s passion for hunting started at a young age, trapping possums, chasing wild boar and stalking red stags. Stefan grew up in the North Island, New Zealand, on the Kapiti Coast and his love of hunting started to go international when he completed the Ultimate O.E, a guides’ training course that trains young men and women in the hunting industry in the US and Canada.

After his early start in hunting, he soon found himself chasing stone sheep, moose and many more species in the Yukon. After spending time in the Scottish Highlands guiding red stags and culling hinds, he encouraged many other young Kiwis to learn to hunt in Scotland through the Ultimate O.E. program. He is a hard-working Kiwi guy with an awesome attitude to life.

Stefan spends his off seasons guiding in Africa and Canada, or working in conservation in New Zealand, undertaking pest control. Stefan’s energy is infectious, his drive and passion are incredible. You are sure to have the hunt of a lifetime with him. We are very grateful to have Stefan on our team
