In late 2017, we (Saran and Amy) took the keys to Hamills Taupo (Mad Mikes/Ridgeline Outlet… call it what you like. It’s Taupo’s favourite little hunting shop!). With Saran being a keen hunter and active member of the NZDA Taupo and Wairakei Fishing & Hunting Club, along with Amy’s background in marketing, it was an opportunity not to be missed.
Sadly, on 30 November 2018, a tragic arson attack on an adjacent store resulted in Hamills being gutted by fire and all stock was lost – only two weeks shy of our one-year anniversary. The plan was to celebrate by throwing a BBQ, but we didn’t want to light up the whole shop!
We are thrilled to be back open now with the shop looking better than ever, complete with your old favourites as well as a few new products on board. We pride ourselves on offering something for everyone – from lower price points to top quality, handmade New Zealand products. We have everything you need for your outdoor adventures and something for everyone in the family (even newborns!).
We’re always up for a yarn, so pop on it, give us a call or email to chat about your upcoming adventures – we’re happy to offer any advice.
