This was a really fun experience. From starting out at the archery range to then heading into the lovely forest. We all improved, but the point was really to have fun and we did. Marcus was great, and very accommodating to our rag tag group.

Wow we had so much fun. Marcus was a fabulous instructor. My teenager and I came away buzzing. Lovely bush with plenty of bird life too. Highly recommended.

This is our second Dragon Hunt trip with Markus. We loved the first time and were not disappointed in a return trip a few years later. Markus is a patient and excellent archery instructor who had us hitting targets again - some of us with better accuracy than others! The bush walk and 3D Archery Course is great fun and a fantastic way to realise that the techniques taught on the archery range do really apply in all conditions. Our teenage girls thoroughly enjoyed the trip again and we would not hesitate to recommend this activity. We will be back next time we are in Nelson.
