operators of the largest outdoor, hunting and firearm related retail and
wholesale businesses in Africa. Marco is an experienced hunter in as far as
African dangerous and plains game is concerned, but he is a newcomer to European
hunting where driven hunts are normal.
is a true wild boar aficionado. Having grown up in one of Germany´s top wild
boar regions, he learned all about this fascinating game and driven boar hunts
from a young age. In 2015 Frederic won the Wildboar Fever Academy at the
Aimpoint headquarters in Sweden and turned from a spectator into an actor in
Wild Boar Fever 8. “I am addicted to driven wild boar hunts. To me this
is the ultimate aggregation of passion, thrill and challenging situations.
Looking back to the filming in Croatia, Frederic says “Passing on the fever to
the new hunters and helping them with boar identification was an honour and
great pleasure especially when seeing how hooked everyone was after just a few
minutes into the first drive.”
Feliew, passionate about hunting since as long as I'm allowed to remember. I
first organized my university courses (forestry technician and agricultural
engineer) and now my professional life around hunting. My job now offers me
exceptional opportunities of hunting. Originally from south of
France, "expatriated" in 2008, when I was 25 years old, to East of
France to manage the hunting federation. In parallel, I’ve started
to make hunting videos and put it on Youtube, I was the first one to do it in
France. Hunting: a passion of passions!
