Precision Helicopters Hokitika is strategically located at the Hokitika Gorge in the Whitcombe Valley. The hunting is right on our back door, offering a competitive advantage to position you for hunting red deer, chamois and Himalayan Tahr. The genetics in the red deer of the Whitcombe has produced some great trophies over the years.

We recommend hunters invest in an In-Reach communication device. This enables more flexible arrangements with us around weather and hunting moves to ensure you get the best out of your trip. We also encourage hunters to carry a personal locator beacon.
