Fantastic family friendly activity to do while in Nelson. We spent a half day with Marcus who was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide in the bush hunting wildly beasts including dragons. We even impressed ourselves after excellent coaching! It was a memorable experience!

I was, lets say, 'encouraged' to have a go at this by other members of my family. What an awesome surprise this ended up being. Quality tuition followed by a hunt in the bush for dragons (and a troll, giant wasp and a few other baddies). Great fun. Markus clearly loves what he does and it shows. Highly recommended, and I am sure pretty unique. (Also safe, and no trolls or dragons were injured on the hunt). One of the highlights of our trip, and I am sure unlike anything else you will ever experience.

Really good team building activity and fun to do. Anybody can join from novice to experienced archers. Intsructor knows his stuff and has a good sense of humor. Suitable for business trips and families. Good activity to also enjoy the NZ outdoors.

Marcus is a fantastic teacher!
We did the Dragon Hunt. And my daughter (15) and I had an absolute blast! The first hour is learning how to shoot and then off you go the 3d creatures are beautiful.

A great way to spend time with my teenage grandson - our second visit - and he still beat me. 4 hours of learning a new skill in the fresh air with plenty of exercise in beautiful bush and a great cafe on site to end the day

We had a great time. Definitely something different that will have wide appeal. Markus is a great teacher and a really genuine person. Nice blend of target practice and faux hunting 😉. Makes for a pleasant few hours of elevated adrenalin levels and fun. Bonus is the cafe on site (good old fashioned tucker on your table within minutes and at low prices that make you check again).

Brilliant day. So much more than aiming at bulls eyes when we got into the bush to fire at animal targets. If you enjoy the outdoors and a social challenge with friends this is for you.

Markus shared his love of archery and the native Bush of Cable Bay. After a brief introduction to archery we went in search of the elusive dragons. A great way to spend our day. We throughly recommend this experience

We had an amazing time doing archery with Marcus. He was such a knowledgeable and experienced person and made the whole time fun. It was an awesome set up and way more fun that just standing shooting at targets. It was fun to get out in some beautiful New Zealand bush and combine a bit of exercise and enjoying the bush walk, along with feeling like real life archers carrying our bows and arrows and shooting the 3D targets in different settings. Highly recommend for a unique experience.
