I live in a small town called Philippolis, which falls within the semi-arid sheep ranching
region in the southern parts of the Freestate, a Province of South Africa.
I got hooked on predator calling in 1991 and made a living for more than 14 years hunting
problem animals in the sheep farming regions of South Africa. I used calling as the main
method to control predators that caused serious economic losses to sheep farmers.
I started hunting problem animals, professionally, in 1995 and have hunted all over South
Africa. I also present courses and programs in calling to ranchers and hunters in South
Africa and Namibia.
I have a small ranch a short distance from Philippolis and am currently employed as the
Reserve General Manager of a 30 000 ha privately owned nature reserve in the Philippolis
I am an enthusiastic predator caller, hunter, fisherman and love the outdoors.
