Your Hosts: The Fourie’s
Pieter and Magda both love everything about outdoor life. They are both passionate hunters and live the Full Draw Hunting Safaris slogan to the fullest – Hunting is not just a hobby, but an obsession.
Pieter Fourie – Outfitter
Pieter Fourie is your Outfitter with over 10 years of extensive guided and professional hunting experience. As a young boy, Pieter was taught the wonder of nature by his father, Peet Fourie.
Year after year of hunting together with his father and brother, a passion was born. On one of these hunting trips he recalls his father showing him a track of a Kudu bull. While his father demonstrated the size of the track against his fist, his father exclaimed: “This is a big Kudu Bull!”. Pieter was fascinated by his father’s knowledge and vowed that he would also learn all he could about the bush. His father installed a deep respect for the animal to be hunted, that you must learn from and about the bush, and above all enjoy life to the fullest. As school ended and Pieter had to step into the world of men, he choose to become a Nature Conservationist.
At Tswane University of Technology, he learned more about this field and how to keep South Africa’s beautiful Fauna and Flora in perfect balance. During this time he also did his Professional Hunters Course and passed both with Flying colours.
He worked for 2 years as a Nature Conservationist and as a Field Guide for Pilanesberg National Park in the North West Province. In his free time he was a freelance Professional hunter.
During this time he realized that his true passion laid in the hunt. That you can conserve nature by learning all that you can from the animals to be harvested. To keep a balanced ecosystem, creates the perfect hunting grounds. And by hunting in these hunting grounds, keeps the system in balance.
He then realized his dream, and became a full time professional hunter. He guided many a hunter towards their dream, hunting in the lush South African bush. Each hunter’s acquisition became his own. Each successful hunt was celebrated as if it was his first!
