Niki Atcheson
Niki Atcheson grew up in a Central Africa, in what is now Burundi and Rwanda, as the daughter of Dr missionary parents. Her father hunted and she caught the bug. Years later during the infamous Hutu/Tutsi genocide she completed her University training in Marine Biology in the USA diving all over the world doing seagrass biology studies. Niki began hunting after several NRA courses and hunting Washington State with her father, became a range master, and started hunting her beloved Africa for dangerous game. In particular Niki loves to hunt old dagga boy Cape buffalo and is headed to # 20 shortly. In the meantime she worked guiding for Eugene Yap of South Point Safaris on Mauna Loa. "I guided from 12,000 ft in pure lava fields to the dense lower jungles in one of the most remote areas in the USA. We hunted the genetically purest strain of muflon sheep in the world, huge wild cattle, turkey and other birds, wild goats, boars etc. The flora and fauna there were some of the rarest in the world and I loved learning about each of them and enthusing my clients about each one." Niki currently cooks, guides and entertains for her husband, Keith Atcheson, of Jack Atcheson and Sons International Hunting Consultants, and their personal Hunters Montana business. "I love taking people into the wilderness and hunting and teaching. Hunters are the greatest people in the world!" Niki also heads up a club of women, The Women of The Four Winds. Many of these women are also professional hunters and teach and share with each other. As well as meeting to discuss important environmental topics, legislature, first aid etc these dedicated women raise money for specialized disabled equipment to get kids and vets in the field in any capacity! "My other passions are gardening, languages, and true life adventure novels especially about women. Women Rock the world!!!" Over the years Niki also occasionally writes articles. Currently she is writing interviews for a new informational website, sportsmanonline.com. Prois's own Kirstie Pike will be featured in the next interview on the website so check it out.
