Elk Hunting In New Zealand Gold Medal SCI 403.5
The largest of our deer species.
Wapiti (Cervus canadensis)
Wapiti is the American Indian name for ‘Elk’. They were introduced to New Zealand from North America earlier last century. Wapiti (Elk) are the largest round-horned deer in the world and to look at the proud, upright carriage of the neck and head of a bull Wapiti, with the crowning might of his antlers, is to realise that here we have a magnificent animal.
