Hey hunters my name is Gasper Petric, I’m from the small European country Slovenia.

First thing I remember of my childhood was hunting with my grandpa. He is a legend of Gams Hunting.

So my first game at age 13 was Gams in my Urslja Gora. There was no doubt that I wanted to become a professional hunter.

Now I have 12 years of experience in guiding, tracking, and hunting with hunting license.

I hunt in the heart of gams revier, every day mountain and gams call me in to their arms.

With experience and love to hunt chamois I think that in my vanes is gams blood.

Now I’m 30 years old and full of enthusiasm for hunt, sharing experience and meeting new hunters and learning from them.

Now when I bacame WILD Jaeger Pro Staff, my hunting connections gets worldwide.

Kind regards !

My name is Norbert Simon and I‘m from Transylvania, the heart of Romania.

I don’t have a long hunting tradition in my family, but I’ve been fortunate enough to discover on my own the magic of the outdoors, first through other activities and sports that were and some of them still are an important part of my life, and then everything got to a whole new dimension once I started hunting.

In my country gun laws are very restrictive, so my hunting journey started with a passion for precision shooting as I started shooting air rifles.

Then, I had the opportunity to participate in a few hunts as a beater and with that, the virus was in for good. From there it was pretty much a snowball effect and after spending a year as a beater at our local hunting club, I finally became a hunter in 2011.

Since 2014 I’ve started to shoot bows and in the same year, I’ve completed the IBEP course so that I could bow hunt outside Romania, as in my country bowhunting is still not permitted.

My earlier passion for photography and videography mixed well with this new passion for hunting, so at the same time, I started a hunting channel on YouTube.

My efforts were not in vain as in 2015 I became a WILD Jaeger pro staff and in 2018 I became the pro staff of the year and with this, my hunting journey took a worldwide dimension.

Hi!

My name is Marius Monrad, now in 2020 I’m 32 years old, and I’m from Norway. I live in Tvedestrand, southern Norway with my wife and our daughter. Between family and work, I try to spend as much time as possible outdoor hunting and fishing, and I love sharing pictures from my trips on Facebook and Instagram.
Since I was in a stroller, I have spent most of my spare time outdoors. My father had me fishing by the time I was two years old and fly tying and fly fishing at the age of five. Nobody in my close family hunted, but a couple of them liked to shoot guns. Needless to say, I was introduced to guns at an early age. I also had a longbow that I shot as often as I could.
At age 16, I was allowed to hunt small game on my own, and I passed the Norwegian hunters’ education program. Since then, I have been hunting most huntable game species in Norway. My favorites are roe deer, red fox, and Eurasian beaver, but I also hunt many other species.

My love for the wild more or less took control of my life from an early age. I have a bachelor’s degree in ecology and natural resources from Telemark university college and currently work in a gun store selling hunting equipment. I have worked there for nine years now.
In 2014 I got the opportunity to combine my passion for hunting with my passion for archery. Bowhunting is illegal in Norway for some reason, but I got certified in Denmark and had my first bowhunting trip shortly after that. That trip changed hunting for me forever! The year after that I shot my first roe deer with a bow, and from then on, I was sold. No other type of hunting can measure up to bowhunting in my opinion!
I shoot PSE bows and have been doing so for about ten years. Nothing combines comfort and performance like a PSE, and that’s especially true since they introduced the ECS cams. If you haven’t tried a bow in the evolve-cam family, and still wonder what brand of bows to shoot, then you should try one!
As mentioned, I love fox hunting. Most of my foxes have been shot over bait at night, but in the last few years I’ve started to call them in. I recently started using Foxpro calls, both electronic and mouth calls, and absolutely love it.
July 15th and fox season opener can’t come soon enough!

My name is Steve Tournier, I currently live in the south of France.

I discovered hunting very late in 2013. The passion for hunting over the years has become a way of life that I share with my family and friends.

Not a week goes by without my mind not doing one with nature.

The hunt also allowed me to open my mind and to discover other continents, North America, South Africa, L’espagne, etc.

Traveling is like a childhood dream!

It is always a new experience for me and a unique chance to travel and see another aspect of hunting.

I hunt most often with a bow, we have an extraordinary chance to be able to hunt all the big animals of our country with a bow.

To be able to take an animal within 20m is quite simply magic and gives me unique emotions.

I love to hunt roebuck by calling them my specialties. I like to share the hunt with friends it is for me the most important.

To be part of the Wild Jaeger team and a new experience for me and an exceptional chance to test the sponsor material in my country.

It is an honor to represent Wild Jaeger in my country of origin; France.

Born 1973 County of Devon

I started hunting at the age of 8 with an air rifle at rabbits. As I grew the hunting grew with me and as I have grown I’ve learned to study and most of all respect the quarry I hunt.

Over the years I have covered a range of hunting from netting rabbits with ferrets, rough shooting, driven pheasant, duck hunting, up to shooting walked up grouse over red setters (pointing dogs)… too many to list but my passion is wildfowling (duck hunting).

I took up rifle shooting 25 years ago and to date have shot 5 of the 6 U.K. deer Species. I have stalked and killed Muntjac, CWD, roebuck, Fallow and Red deer… just the sika to add.

With a lot of my hunting, I have man’s best friend with me and over the years I have lost some very special four-legged friends.

I have trained all my own dogs for all the types of hunting I do. We all have very special memories of hunts and I have lots with my dogs;
(I call them my boys! Which at times when talking with people they think I have children!! Lol I have to explain that they are my dogs).

I do a range of fishing not as much as my hunting but now and then I get out to fish.

I am new to bow hunting, having had a go as a young lad, I am now hooked! With lots of research, I bought my first bow and taught myself how to shoot and set up a compound bow.

I started thinking where I could hunt as unfortunately bow hunting is not allowed in the U.K.

Whilst talking with a work colleague about hunting whitetail deer in America and looking into the cost and so on, he said why don’t you try Denmark!!

“Denmark??” I said.

Yeah they bow hunt there and it’s closer so not as far to travel…

I found WILD Jaeger on YouTube whilst searching for Bowhunting in Denmark, well that was it! I was sold and this is where I met Ricky Mills.
I contacted him through WILD Jaeger holiday/hunting trip was booked to Denmark. I then had to take my IBEP test to hunt abroad.

So I go to Denmark and meet Ricky and have a fantastic time hunting with him and on returning stayed in contact.

Which brings me up to the present day when Ricky invited me to become a WILD Jaeger Pro team member…

Country’s hunted:
– U.K.
– Denmark

Hunt with:
– shotgun
– rifle
– bow

Also Affiliated member of British Bowhunters Association and BASC

Reinis Kreicbergs was born in May 1992 in Latvia. Since childhood, I have been connected to nature, because my father taught me about fishing. Everything started with perch fishing, then breams, then pike fishing and trout fishing…and then I started to learn about carp fishing. Few times I had taken part in local competitions, two times I had got 1st place. Within 2 years I am planning to take a part in the Latvian Championship in carp fishing.

While I was in school, I was a professional swimmer. Some years I was doing Martial Arts – Aikido and Wing Chun. When I was 19 years old, I bought my first dirt bike, and for a few years, I was doing Motocross.

But…I had never thought about hunting because nobody in my family is a hunter.
One day my friend asked me if I would like to try to go to a driven hunt as a beater. My best friend was connected to hunting at a young age. I accepted his offer and since that day I have been really close to hunting. Then I passed all the exams to get my hunting license and got my first gun… this is how it all started.

My name is Egert Poll and I am born and raised in Estonia. I started hunting when I was about eight years old and that thanks to my dad who took me hunting with him and taught me everything that he knows. At the moment

I’m 25 years old and my hunting passion is only growing.
In 2004 I joined The Ääsmäe Hunting Club which opened many doors to hunting and also started my big hunting journey. A few years later I also joined The Hubertus Hunting Club. Thanks to being part of the hunting clubs my hunting grounds are 28,000 hectares big, which contains versatile landscapes and many different species.

I started animal calling about six years ago when I shot my first moose thanks to calling. At that moment I totally fell in love with calling hunt and I still study and try out new calling methods. For now, I have shot about 40 moose only with calling. My first fox calling whistle came when I was 22 years old and after trying it out, calling hunt for foxes became my favorite.

There is nothing more exciting and makes your heart pound than seeing the animal answer your calling. Only thanks to calling I have shot over twenty foxes. A year later I got my first roe deer whistle and in a few years, I have shot over ten roe deers just by calling. In 2017 I called out my first wolf and this was a breaking point in my life. I was alone sitting on a stand in the moonlight and started calling, it did not take long when seven wolves answered, the adrenaline just started going through my body when one stepped out and I let the bullet do the job. Calling hunt truly is insane.

I have been with Jaeger for my friends and other hunters, where I have called for the animals like wolves, roe deer, and so on. But it is not just calling that is important, I also need to know where animals move, where are their nesting places and when is the right time to start calling.

In years I have learned a lot throw my experiences and educating myself so that I could be better in calling hunt, but there is also still so much to learn.
I have been using FOXPRO calling whistles for a year now and they are the best for calling hunt. They work insanely well and made by predator hunters to predator hunters.

I am still young and I have been hunting for so long now, but there are also so many years ahead of me and I just can’t wait to see what is still yet to come.

I am born 9th of January 1995 in Serbia. Coming from a hunting family, I fell in love with the hunt since I was a little boy. Finished college at age of 24, got a master degree in Agriculture and Agricultural business.

Active hunter from my 18th birthday. Main hunting game for me are small game (quails, doves, duck, rabbits, pheasants), big game roedeers and wild boar’s favorite are predators (foxes and jackals). The hunting technique, I prefer most is stalking.

I love to be out there and enjoy nature. I am the owner of the WILD Srbija YouTube page, making of hunting movies is my big passion, hopefully, I will have the chance to travel hunt/film all over the world.

Hunting rifle caliber, I prefer most Is 223 rem. Absolutely the best for flat hunting ground I hunt. I am also using 30 06 for bigger game. And 12 gauge for small game.

I’m 48 years old but in great physical condition due to spending a lot of time outdoors and a physical job that keeps me fit. I have been hunting since I was 15 years old and I hunt all animals allowed here in Finland including small predators and pest.

Hunting takes place mostly in SW Finland, but also elsewhere in the country. Currently, I live 100 km North from capital Helsinki, in the city of Lahti. I go hunting during the season often, sometimes daily, mostly weekly. We have a private bowhunting club and this offers plenty of opportunities to go around this northern country. It’s called Experience Bowhunting Club. I was one of the founders and first president of the club.

My favorite target is whitetail deer and this beautiful animal increases heavily in numbers here. Best areas have 100 plus heads per 1000 hectares. I typically take about 4-6 of those annually to fill the freezer with venison. I also hunt predators among friends underground, using small dogs and then digging those illegal residents back to the surface.

Currently, the bow and arrow have taken more space in life, which is a fascinating method to hunt. I have been hunting with a bow last 15 years, also trips to the US included. RSA is on plans, but Estonia and wild pigs I have seen several times.

The camera on the hunt has not been too much used, but a new camera and swivel arm to three, etc will come in use when the current season continues. A drone would be nice at some point. I have been traveling thru most of this planet, despite South America, Africa, and Australia.

I had hunted in some countries, but laws and restrictions were hard to find by hosts…Geese, ducks, pheasants, pigeons, etc have also been on my ‘menu’ for more than 2 decades. Roedeers, whitetails, and moose are on lists also.

I also cook a lot of game meat and according to judges on way, they have loved the food of forest ingredients. Hunting is not a hobby for me, it’s a way of living and passion for me.

I have also education to make tanning to hides at my own, using saame, Indian and Inuit methods in a natural way. Also, trophies and jewelry from bones is my area of expertise.

I’ve been hunting since I was six years old. I went with my dad for 10 years and then I became a member of a hunting association. I primarily hunt wild boars, then, roebuck, fox, pheasant, wild duck and many others. In the summer I’m hunting and quails. I’m hunting exclusively for socializing and hobbies, I do not have material benefits from hunting. I also raise hunting dogs and keep four breeds. I have 3 hunting rifles. We have some rare game in the hunting ground, for example, chamois, bear, tetrao urogallus, wolf, lynx, wild boar, jackal, rabbit, pheasant, and many others. I own a Pajero off-road vehicle. My father is also a passionate hunter from whom I inherited this hobby. I also do fishing trout. I study the Faculty of Forestry in Banja Luka. I hunt across Bosnia and Herzegovina. I enjoy nature and hang out with hunters. Regards from Bosnia!
