The West Coast is at Alert Level 2. COVID-19 Business Support
Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting
Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting caters and specialises in guided free-range hunting, primarily for Alpine Chamois and Himalayan Thar.
The West Coast provides a great opportunity for hunting success due to a unique and favourable environment for the animals and the knowledge and experience of business owner and lead guide, Dave Jellie, who has lived and hunted on the West Coast for years.
Due to concessions held and networking contacts formed with other professional guides, Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting provides a variety of hunt options throughout New Zealand for potential clients. Dave can also cater for and book hunting adventures in the Canadian Yukon.
Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting are in a symbiotic partnership with Wild Outdoorsman, Fishing and Firearms in Hokitika and Greymouth. Both branches are West Coast owned and staffed. Dave was advised by them to seek help from DWC in getting the business off the ground and he says it has proven to be some of the best advice he has received yet.
"DWC has been nothing short of fantastic by way of support, regular contact, advice and mentorship,” Dave says.
“When COVID-19 hit this country, Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting, like many other Westland businesses, lost almost all of the season’s work overnight. DWC has gone above and beyond to make sure this small business has a chance to survive. We are grateful for this and benefitting from the partnership between Wild Outdoorsman Outfitting and DWC.”
