Nick Kotze

​I was born in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and was privileged to grow up surrounded by Africa’s spectacular wildlife.


Having exceptional marksmen in my family, I was mentored from a young age on how to handle firearms and spent countless days in the field hunting problem animals in our citrus crops.


In 2009, I was lucky enough to represent my country in field sport shooting and won the gold in the junior category. After school, I did a 3 year Diploma in Nature Management, completed the South African Professional hunters course, and finished my National Pilot’s License.


Fast forward a few years of hunting dangerous game in the Limpopo Province, Botswana, and Zimbabwe - I was introduced to Pete Alfano who gave us the opportunity to start a new chapter in the United States of America. My beautiful wife, Sashkia, and my daughter, Livia, now call Kansas home.


In 2020, I had the opportunity to manage Hooray Ranch and also started my upland guiding career. And here we are at the present-day, managing and guiding game birds for Western Flight Farms.
