Ewan was born and raised in Haast, the Southern most settlement of the South Island's rugged West Coast, where his father hunted for meat as a main source of income.
Ewan went on to become a Butcher in Lake Wanaka - which is situated in the Southern Alps where both the Himalayan Thar and the European Chamois were introduced. These two majestic game animals and their habitat, is what instigated Ewan's passion for alpine hunting.
Ewan has also spent time in Colorado hunting free range Elk and he looks forward to guiding his clients to securing their trophy animals.
