EWAN BLACK (EWIE)
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.
Ewie went on to become a butcher in Lake Wanaka – which is situated in the Southern Alps where both the himalayan tahr and the alpine chamois were introduced. These two majestic animals and their habitat are what instigated Ewie’s passion for alpine hunting and ultimately his unsurpassed ability in the mountains.
Ewie has also spent time in Colorado hunting free range elk and he looks forward to guiding his clients to securing their trophy animals.
