Who Is Thys van Niekerk?
Went to work in England in 1998 and shared a house with a bow hunting crazy Kiwi. Bought my first bow at the end of that same year in the USA, a Jennings Buckmaster. Played around with it and hunted my first animal in 2005. In Oct 2008 upgraded to a Mathews DXT and started to take part in Field Archery competitions. In 2009 bought my first Bowtech Constitution and my first choice of bows have been Bowtech ever since.
