That’s 365 days of incredible New Zealand turkey hunting in some of the most beautiful countryside in the world. Merriam turkeys are spread out all over New Zealand. There are plenty of them right here on Kaweka’s property. Many of the locals don’t participate in New Zealand turkey hunting.  That equates to very little pressure on them. Combine that and the fact that the only real enemy of the wild turkey is a small possum and with fewer and fewer possums, the turkey population numbers are high here in New Zealand. This makes for some great turkey hunting success rates here at Kaweka Hunting.
