Tahr

The Himalayan Tahr, originally from the areas around Tibet , were introduced to the Southern Alps of the South Island of New Zealand around 1904 to 1906. The Tahr is considered vulnerable by the IUCN (1996) in its Himalayan home but is relatively plentiful in New Zealand and here is the only place in the world where this magnificent animal can be freely hunted.

Tahr is a majestic animal found on hillside rocky outcroppings with their long "lion like" mane blowing in the wind. This is truly a majestic sight. When put to chase, the Tahr hunter will be in awe of their climbing abilities. They make their home mostly between 4500 and 7000 feet in the steep New Zealand Alpines of the South Island between the Arthurs Pass and Haast Pass highways.

The Himalayan Tahr is close relative to the free range mountain goat and may be cooked in much the same way as goat or lamb.
