Kaweka Hunting Lodge

Game Ranch

Rob Holt and client

The advantages of hunting our large private game ranch are many. For example our hunters do not have to spend hours in vehicles every day travelling to different areas to hunt a combination of South Pacific deer species.

Pat Kennedy Professional Guide for Kaweka Ranch

Pat Kennedy - Professional Hunting Guide for Kaweka Hunting

Pat has been at Kaweka Hunting since 2011, both guiding and helping with the general running of the ranch.

From a farming background, originally from Poronui where his Dad managed the quarter horse stud, he is an all round outdoor man who enjoys most outdoor pursuits. Pat is also an enthusiastic pig hunter and when not working you will find him out with his dogs chasing wild boar. He is currently the president of the Hawke's Bay Pig Hunters Club.

Rob and Pat go back a good twenty years to shepherding days up at Ngamatea Station where they both enjoyed many hours hunting deer and pigs together in their time off.

Pat also worked as a scuba diver trainer......

According to Pat he is very modest, good looking with an awesome physique. We will let you judge when you meet him!

With his years of hunting experience Pat is a well respected member of our team and knows his way around the ranch as if he has been here for many years. With his great sense of humor and real Kiwi attitude all clients who have had the opportunity to be guided by him have left with a great experience and a grin form ear to ear.

Married to Nicki with a son in the NZ Army.
