Outfitter - Fraser Cooper

Raised in the Marlborough high-country Frasers father Hugh installed in him the passion for the endless opportunities New Zealand’s outdoors had to offer and the secrets it held. Developing a hunger for the wilderness and travel Fraser pursued a career that kept him involved in the hunting industry year-round. Guiding for 12 years in New Zealand, Canada and the US and traveling to hunt in the UK, Africa and South America has built on Frasers knowledge of conservation and game management and provided him with a platform to offer a wide range of hunting opportunities. Whether looking for your first game animal, waterfowl hunting or pursuing that trophy red stag Fraser will take you on a journey to realise your dreams.
