The famous Saxon Merino Pitt Island wild sheep have roamed free on Pitt Island for over 150 years. While now constrained to the isolated rocky cliffs - their preferred habitat - these wild sheep are not farmed in any way. Treasured as a source of food and recreation, islanders strive to preserve this now rare breed by promoting sustainable and managed hunting which not only helps to preserve the breed but brings vital income to the island. Flowerpot Lodge has exclusive access to this resource and works closely with land owners to provide a safe and enjoyable hunt. Download Hunting & Fishing packaged holiday information sheet below.
