Comments from our Guest Book
All of us would like to thank you once again for our New Zealand experience. The memories will last a lifetime and the trophies will remind us of our time with you.
Looking forward to seeing you again.

We’re having a good summer, just returned from a week in Florida. Too hot! Has your workload eased up a bit? I don’t know how you keep up the pace. We’re savouring our fond memories of your beautiful country and its people, and plotting ways to be able to return, so keep in touch.
Joel & Barb Schafer, NE.
Thank you both for a great hunt! Everything was wonderful, the touring, hunt and hospitality. Will send you another book once it is put together & printed which will take some time. Hope your hunt with Doug is as successful as our hunt.
All the best, Joyce & Bruce Phetteplace, NY.
Just want to thank you both again for such a successful hunt and warm, comfortable stay in your lodge. Will look forward to the receipt of the horns and capes and to seeing Judy in January in Billings. You are both top notch……so glad to have booked with you.
Regards, Linda and Doug Hakert, WY.
I just wanted to drop you guys a note and tell you how much Trevor and I enjoyed hunting with you recently. lt was the hunt of a lifetime for me and for Trevor as well. Stu-e, you showed dogged determination to get us our stags and we really appreciated it. Judy of course was wonderful and her cooking was great, Loved the desserts too. She’s quite a tour guide. Anytime you come to Tucson you should call us and come stay with us.
We will see you at the SCl next year.
With great appreciation,
Andy and Trevor Tedesco, AZ.
Gosh!! Where do I start? Kay and I had the most beautiful time of our lives. We owe it to the two of you. 335 pictures still wasn’t enough to show everyone the fantastic views and scenery. People are starting to tell me stop we have already heard about your trip. Am I bragging? You bet I am. You are both top notch people and friends. I have never been to a place that was as clean and friendly and just pure heaven. The trip home wasn’t too stressful. Seemed too quick and easy. The next time we come back it will be to visit and enjoy your company and eat some more blue cod, and some of that sinfully good pineapple cheese cake. let us know when you are coming back to the US again. We would like to make dinner plans. We both say; THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU, FOR THE GREAT MEMORY.

My friends here are really taken by the pictures. It was the most pleasurable hunt l’ve ever been on. Did I tell you that I got a rather remarkable tahr? We both appreciate the outstanding manner in which you took care of us, your respect and all of your help with my hunt. Your country is a beautiful one and we are glad that we had the opportunity to visit. We thank you both for taking the time to show us a sites of your region. Thanks again for your (both of your) kindness.
Looking forward to seeing you in PA. Barry and Shirley Martz, PA.
We want to thank you again for such a wonderful trip. When I describe our trip with friends and family, I tell everyone, it was truly, A Hunt of a Lifetime. Carson has not stopped talking about his Stag. Carson’s picture, with his Stag, is hanging up at the local car garage, the Motorcycle Shop and the Archery Shop. His teacher even had it up on the big screen, in his classroom at his school. This has been such a great experience for
him and l, we will never forget it, and you guys made it happen. Thank you all so much. You are good people.
Have a great and positive day!
Sincerely Scott N. Rehm, PA.
Becky and I are still reliving our hunt almost every day. lt was a wonderful experience provided by wonderful people. Be well, and let us know your schedule next year, especially if you plan to be in Phoenix.
Mike & Becky Hron, AZ.
We made it back safe and sound and are heading over to the beach for a couple of days of golf and relaxation. Thank you again for the hospitality and wonderful time in New Zealand. lt will be one of our favourite trips ever. Hope you all are having a great time with the new hunters there. Look forward to seeing you again. warmest
Regards, Ed & Margaret Valentine, SC.
Thanks for such a wonderful time while we were in New Zealand. You guys are the greatest!! We appreciate you people telling it like it is!! Judy, seeing those penguins certainly one of the highlights of the trip!!! I am absolutely, completely, happy and thrilled with the Stag I got… I am looking at the pictures right now. Of course the Fallow Deer is exceptional too. Thanks to the both of you for all you did for us! We enjoyed our stay very much!! Best regards, Ken & Emilee De Kam, MT.
We made it home with ” no probems. Thanks again for the great times and keep us in touch when you are headed to Billings and I will bring up some Walleye for you to eat. Let me know if I need to do anything from here to get those heads home. and have a great season.
“Just wanted to say thanks again for a great adventure. We all enjoyed it. You guys did everything in your power no matter the effort to make our stay the best possible at all times. I never imagined going into it we would walk out with friendships. Like I said before, “Disneyland!” my dreams were fulfilled, thank you and hope we cross paths again.
Jeff, Ryan, Rhiley, Justin and Scott.”
“We just wanted to thank you again for your professionalism and dedication to your clients!.
The accommodations, food and hospitality were all very good. The highlight was again the Tahr and the chamois hunt. Spectacular scenery, good company, fantastic experience and excellent trophies, all and more than you had promised as usual.
We will be back again. Doug and Kerry Wood.”
“Hey Guys. I had a fantastic time. Please feel free to use me as a reference for any potential hunters. I have been telling everyone of our exploits and showing pictures. They are absolutely “green”. Of course, I tell them that they too can enjoy a great hunt with ASJ just as I did. They mostly just look at me funny when I tell them everything we bagged. Thanks again for a truly great hunt and a memory of a lifetime!
“What a Great Trip! Hello Stu-e and Judy. I want to let you know what a fantastic trip I had with you guys. I appreciate all you did to make the trip possible, to join Mark with such a short notice. The company, food and hunting where second to none! I will be back with my family to hunt and tour New Zealand. If and when you are in the New York, Pennsylvania area please let me know so we could get together. Thanks!
“We thank you for making our red stag hunt the best we could have imagined, from the hospitality to the hunt itself, we could not have asked for more. A visit to Southland, NZ is absolutely magical, one I would recommend to anyone who loves to hunt. What Stu-e does on the mountain to get the hunter a perfect shot is nothing short of incredible. We thank you for everything!.
Joyce Westervelt & Bruce Phetteplace .”
“THANK YOU again for the wonderful time. We have gained memories of a lifetime and, I trust, friends as well. I’ll reach out to the boys to see what we want to do next year about the Archery mission. I grew fond of those Tahr and Fallow, so I may just go after them instead of a stag, we’ll see.
“We want to say Thank You for an experience that can be described as no less than FANTASTIC! The country, the people and the hunting experiences were beyond our expectations or anything that we dreamed of before our trip to New Zealand. The hospitality of the “Kiwis” is the best I have ever experienced.
You should see and hear Dee tell of her hunting experience! I haven’t seen her get that excited and animated in a conversation in years! We are already discussing when can we join you for more hunting adventures. Hope all is well, and that we get to see you this coming Jan. and can take you through Yellowstone Park for some wildlife viewing!
Gene & Dee”
“We had a great time with you guys and also in Queenstown, went jet boating, tour of lord of the rings, shopping, went out to dinner, and just thoroughly enjoyed our time on holiday. I hope your hunting is going well. Thanks again for the privilege to hunt with your business. Thanks
Mike & Cindy Keaty”
“I’m five days back home, all safe and sound. I very much miss my new found New Zealand friends. Hope all is going well with you; I’ve thought many times about that young man who had the “Hunt of a Lifetime” and can only imagine the challenges you’ve had bringing his dream to reality.
Thanks for the many great moments we shared; the ultimate for me was the taking of the red stag, though I very much loved the pub, too! Good hunting for the remainder of your season. Hopefully, soon you will find some time for yourselves. God bless.
Bill Hope aka Goldfinger.”
“Hope all is going well with the rest of your hunting season.
Lots of people have been very impressed with our pictures and your operation. Thank you again for everything that you did for us while we were there, and thank you both for such a wonderful experience.
Brent and Erin.”
