In retirement, perpetually smiling Werner Böing helps orchestrate driven guineafowl and rock pigeon hunts, flipping South Africa’s best hamburgers with catcher’s mitt-sized hands. Formerly, he was for decades among South Africa’s most elite environmental task force, the Green Scorpions. What drives someone like Böing, what lead him into this career path? What species kept them busiest, how were covert operation orchestrated, taking them at times into Southeastern Asia? What international agencies were involved? Why’d he quit Sunday investigations (I would have too)? What role does hunting play in the greater scheme of things, and what will become of South Africa’s most iconic species? A man of few words, Böing offers thought-provoking insights as deftly as a charging rhino.
