"Nicky Boehnisch was born and raised in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and grew up hunting with her dad since the ripe old age of six years. She took her very first big game animal at the age of 16, which was a beautiful Thompson's gazelle. Hunting was always part of her life thanks to her hunting mentor and big brother, James Henderson. James is a very experienced and dedicated hunter, having managed the hunting property where Nicky took that first prized springbok all those years ago. He is a big factor in keeping Nicky hooked on the sport." ~By Jeff Schlachter
