Eben Botma

Who Is Eben Botma?

I’m Eben, the friendly, always smiling, laid back, down to earth guy you see at most of the 3D shoots, and a couple of others. I Went to a hunting and fishing expo and competed in a competition, (casting with a fishing rod, air gun shooting and bow shooting), saw a bow there for the first time and thought… wow this is damn cool. Turns out I won the air gun competition and won a hunting weekend with a impala included. At the time I had no weapons and no one to take with which has got one. That’s when I decided to get myself one of those damn cool bows to go hunt with, the rest is as they say history…
