Bob is a Geologist by training, graduating with a Doctorate from The University of the Witwatersrand in 1986. He has since worked in the minerals and coal industry and the international oil industry. He is currently employed by Tullow Oil Plc. as Commercial Manager (Africa) for the Group’s international exploration portfolio. He has been an avid Hunter and Wingshooter all his life, but to his deep regret, only discovered the joys of wingshooting over pointing dogs much later in life. His first German Shorthaired Pointer was Ch. Jagveld Katie, who arrived as a pup in June 1994. Katie has been an absolute revelation as a dedicated hunting companion and a versatile gundog, and changed Bob’s wingshooting forever…..Bob competes in Field Trials as much as the pressures of work and family commitments allow. Bob acquired an English Pointer in 2007 that he also hunts over and trials.

Trudi is also a Geologist by training. She worked in the international oil industry based in Dallas, until graduating with an MSc from the University of Texas in 1992, after which she moved to Cape Town and continued her career in the oil industry until she married Bob in 1994. She has been involved with animals most of her life, having started with American Quarter Horses as a young girl. It was a natural progression to move on to gundogs when she moved to South Africa, and the GSP quickly became her breed of choice. She is a dedicated Field Trialer and wingshooter, competing in as many trials and wingshooting as much as time away from her family will allow.

We are both members of the Kennel Union of Southern Africa, founder members and committee members of the Western Cape Field Trial Club, members and committee member of the Cape Field Trial Club, and members of SA Wingshooters and Cape Hunters and Game Conservation Association, and the Transvaal HPR Field Trial Club. Trudi currently serves on the Executive Committee of the National Field Trial Association. Bob also served on the Executive Committee for a number of years. We are both on the Kennel Union Judging Panel for HPR Field Trials and the National Field Trial Association’s Judges List for HPR Field Trials and Field Trials for British Breeds (Pointers and Setters). Trudi is also qualified to judge Kennel Union Retriever Field Trials at Championship level and is also a Kennel Union Working Spaniel Judge. We have both trained and handled our own dogs to Open Stake wins and places.
