13-Year-Old Arrows Monster New Zealand Red Stag, Then Another

Two is always better than one. These red stags need to be seen to be believed.

A family that hunts together stays together. And that can’t be more true than for the Gourdin’s. On a recent trip to New Zealand, 13-year-old Aryanna arrowed not only one, but two monster red stag. And along for the ride was Dad and her brother, and they both had successful hunts as well.

On back-to-back days in late March, and with the outfitter Kaweka Hunting N.Z., Aryanna found the prize and made the shot. And what beauty stags these beasts are!

Here’s the first:

“I had the chance to harvest a beauty of a stag, and my brother and dad did, too! our @bowtecharchery bows and @wacemarchery broadheads did not disappoint and can definitely get the job done!”

Next up was this stag, which scored an incredible 404 inches!

“Once again with a beauty of a stag!! I am beyond thankful to be able to experience this!”

And here’s a video showing this second stag being shot:

Talk about a dream hunt! We are definitely jealous.

Anyone else thinking a trip to New Zealand is in order?
