Description:
Ever since their release at the head of George Sound in March 1905, nothing has aroused hunters' passion more than the greatest of all the deer species, the magnificent wapiti. A big bull taken in Fiordland's demanding terrain is New Zealand's premier big game trophy. Rampant commercial exploitation, eradication efforts by bureaucrats, poaching and politics, combined with the dedicated efforts of individuals and groups to save the wapiti, all played a part in the herd that exists today. The gift of ten wapiti from US President Theodore Roosevelt, himself a keen hunter, plus another ten purchased by T E Donne, Manager of the NZ Government Tourist Department, formed the nucleus of the herd. Today they range from Charles Sound in the south to Sutherland Sound in the north with Lake Te Anau forming the eastern boundary.

Simon Gibson has spent thousands of hours in the wapiti area over a period of twenty years and is well qualified to write this essential guide for the modern hunter. It is an important information resource for those who want to accept the challenge of trying for NZ's toughest trophy.
