TROPHY TRACKERS AFRICA! And there we were!
OUTFITTER & PROFESSIONAL HUNTER
After growing up in Botswana and Zimbabwe, Henri van Aswegen became a professional hunter and outfitter in 1987 and has hunted continuously since then.
In the early 90's, together with Dr H Ebedes he changed requirements for the relocation of elephants from cables and railway line anchor pole fencing as a minimum requirement, to electric fencing as a minimum requirement.
He was based in South Africa up to 1993 where most of his hunts took place but also included hunts to Botswana and Zimbabwe.
In 1994 he teamed up with C.J. McElroy, founder of SCI, to market and hunt Zambia. There mostly depleted areas were used and he was instrumental in building up game numbers. Within two years these areas had recovered so much that they were now in demand by other companies operating in Zambia.
During this time he donated two consecutive 30 day Big Five hunts to SCI
"I have hunted big game on five continents with many guides and professional hunters, and Henry van Aswegen ranks among the top two or three. I can think of no other PH whom I would have wanted with me when he and I moved into a lion blind before dawn - with lions roaring at the bait 35 meters in front of us." William R Quimby, Director of Publications, SCI, 1994.
