Testimonials

"I have hunted with Glenn on several occasions and have been impressed with his knowledge and skill. His patience and perseverance have resulted in success on every occasion. Coming from Zimbabwe I doubted the thrill of hunting in NZ  - but with Glenn's guiding and support - I have gone back time and time again. Thank you Glenn for the amazing experiences."

"Experiences = Memories. One has to have experiences. If you want some great memories, have an experience with Glenn at Alpine Trophy Hunts!

Enjoy the best of what the South Island has to offer, my brother and I both got great Thar and Arapura Ram Trophies and the Wallaby pest control night was Outstanding, what a great night shoot, highly recommended ● great food and accommodations well sorted ● very knowledgeable guides, led by Glenn, anticipating your needs based on your own experience level, including getting me up to the highest level to get a shot at a great Thar! , lucky it was foggy because if I had seen where we were going it may have been a no go , but Glenn and his guys just work away at your pace and find a route that works, with plenty of “ we’ll just go up here a bit “ ! ● Nightly campfire discussions (hunters BS), cold beer and tall tales made for a fantastic hunt, unforgettable memories and trophies hanging on the wall at home that proves it all. Go get yourself some!"

"I first hunted with Alpine Trophy Hunts in May 2012 and took a beautiful 12 1/2" Bull Tahr". The service that Glen and his staff provide are second to none! His knowledge of the animals and terrain that we hunted was spot on...He made the hunt an experience of a life time. My friend and I had such a blast we went back in 2014 and are booked for April 2015."

"We weren’t disappointed – in fact we were delighted – Glenn made us feel very relaxed from the first time we met him (picked us up from Chch Airport) Within a few hours we were hunting – straight into it Day 1 . The action continued Day 2 3 and 4 – Tahr, good Red Deer and plenty of Wallaby's. It was a blast – really was. Hard work ? – certainly was when getting my Bull Tahr – the climb was superb and the reward ( my first ever Bull Tahr) was just sensational , what a amazing trophy animal to hunt Oh and yes he took us to his Taxidermist – Mounted Tahr for my man cave soon to happen We have been to a few – but no one as good as Glenn Do it again? Absolutely and have booked again with Glenn"

"I always dreamed of getting to go and hunt New Zealand at least once in my life. I remember getting the call from my friend asking if I wanted to pursue a Himalayan Tahr on the South Island. Alpine Trophy Hunts would be our outfitter he said. It was definitely the best choice I have made in my hunting career! First and foremost the South Island is stunning! The terrain we hunted was breath taking. Glen and his crew take pride in getting you your trophy of a lifetime! Their knowledge of the game was very professional. I'm hooked and will be going back 2015"

"When two hunters get to the South Island of New Zealand – they want the best You will get it from Glenn and his team at Alpine Trophy Hunt in Ashburton Picked up from the Airport – hunting two hours later and then 4 days of hard core hunting. My first Bull Tahr was so worth it , and yep we had to work hard for it in a most amazing place. The climb,, the stalk, the shot. Trophies at the Taxidermist, meat in the Freezer, and memories we will never forget. Want a referral from us ? This is it - Go Alpine Trophy Hunting with Glenn Ralston"

"Glenn from Alpine Trophy Hunts was one of the best hunting companions I have ever been with. I brought along two of my boys and he took time to make them feel part of the hunt and included them in everything. Safety was always paramount and he put us on to some fantastic animals. Next time out we will chase a Chamois Buck on the Wild West Coast of NZ and I’m sure Glenn will deliver."
