My name is Jacob Edson and I’m from Otsego, MN, USA. I found Glen Dene through a friend and outdoor writer Brad Fenson. I hunted in March 2018 alongside Glen Dene guide Neil Connoly using my Savage Accufit model 110 in .30-06. The hunting and hiking was hard, but the reward was so, so worth it.
~What did you think about the lodge and your stay at Glen Dene? I was extremely happy with the accommodations, staff, hunting and really everything provided. It was a great hunt. The food was wonderful and the locations were beyond what I even imagined. I also really appreciated Glen Dene’s ability to mix commercial agriculture with conservation and sport hunting. It is a perfect model to see how well things can work in New Zealand when the different pieces can coexist.
~Would you recommend Richard’s operation to a friend Most assuredly. Glen Dene was a top notch outfit with excellent accommodations, great game and just an amazing setting as a canvas for these hunts.
