Melanie Vallun

Who Is Melanie Vallun?

We spent a holiday on my brothers farm in Kwazulu Natal in December 2009 where he showed us how he hunts bushpigs with a bow. My husband subsequently also bought a bow and the bug bit. Within 2 months the whole family had bows and we started to take part in Sanifaa indoor and 3D competitions. I haven’t looked back since and am now taking part in every competition I can as well as fitting in the much anticipated hunt each year.
