Tim has been hunting in New Zealand most of his life, starting out as a small boy hunting turkeys, rabbits & hares on the family farm. This passion grew as he got older, hunting deer, fallow , chamio & Thar.
It has been a lifelong dream to start a New Zealand Trophy hunting business & thoroughly enjoys taking clients out hunting, sometimes to get their first ever deer. Seeing the thrill on their faces is awesome! Totally satisfying.
Frecks (Donna) was bought up down South in Wanaka, also hunting small animals with the family in her younger years. We met in Wanaka & in their spare time we would spend many an hour climbing the hills in search of Deer, Chamio & Thar.
We moved to Tim's family farm in 1994, after we married & have been here ever since bringing up our children - ‘in Paradise’
Our children – Michaela 20, Hamish 19 & Thomas 17 have all developed a passion for hunting. Not surprisingly really!
As a family we all enjoy the outdoor life including: Hunting, Fishing & Camping & love heading out to Franklins when we can.
In 2006/2007 we decided to start fencing off the Franklin block for hunting & opened officially 2008. Since then; we have meet some wonderful people who come hunting as clients but leave as new found friends, most of whom come year after year.
Simple & Rustic is what it is all about out in Franklins. Once out there you won’t want to leave!
For those wanting a little more luxury, we have our Glenora Homestead or the Glenora Lodge at the front of the farm.
Both Tim & I, along with our children (whom help Guide) look forward to meeting you here at Glenora Hunting Adventures for an adventure you will never forget!
A WARM & FRIENDLY WELCOME
