New Zealand elk are an important component of the
bigger New Zealand trophy industry.
Visitors to this country come to this end of the earth to
secure a red deer stag,chamois, bull tahr and
New Zealand Wapiti (elk).
Members of the Elk Wapiti Society
annually produce trophy wapiti to supply live animals
to the New Zealand outfitting community.
Growing trophy wapiti is not for the faint hearted
and subsequently it tends to be a specialist activity
among elk breeders.
A small number of mature hard antler heads
make it to the EWSNZ Velvet-Antler competition arena but most hard antler now tends to be sold on the live animal.
The Society offers to members a seasonal price
guide for values of New Zealand trophy wapiti and we are very proud of the quality of trophy animals now
being produced in the South Pacific region.
