Thank you to everyone that entered and helped make the Te Anau Helicopter Services 2021 Fiordland Big 3 another success. Click here for to see the overall results.
The Te Anau Helicopter Services Fiordland Big 3 tournament is a hunting event based in the Fiordland Mountains around Te Anau, New Zealand. Hunters team up to bag a deer, pig and fish. Might seem easy to some, but the 'one that got away' just doesn't count!
Hunting begins at 7:00pm on the Thursday before Queen's Birthday weekend. Teams can hunt throughout the Fiordland region and also the wider Southland and Otago area to bag the three species; deer, pig, fish. Hunting teams must then get to the weigh-in before the 2:00pm cut-off deadline on Sunday.
During the course of the afternoon there will be pig carrying competitions for men, ladies, children, and a combined adult and child section - and possum-slinging too! Great fun and great prizes up for grabs.
The major prize of a customised trip for four with Te Anau Helicopter Services, and more will be by barrel draw under Police Supervision. This will be in the form of a shoot-out involving 4 random teams who have caught all 3 species.
