    Very sorry to hear this! Although I had only hunted with Pieter on two occasions, I considered him a great friend. RIP buddy.

    I really enjoyed meeting Pieter and his family and everyone involved with Pawprint Safaris when I was there in 2018. His passing will leave a void. My condolences to his family and friends.

    It is sad to receive this terrible news. A fellow Hunter, Outfitter, Professional Hunter and Friend has fallen but will never be forgotten.

    Our condolences goes out to everyone who has known Peter and our prayers goes up for his family and especially the children who are going through a very tuff time at the moment.

    I’m very sorry to hear this Charlie. I know he was a good friend. Cancer is a terrible disease. I myself have lost family members to cancer. My prayers to his family and close friends.

    I appreciate you posting this for the AH community @CAustin.

    It is very sad news I received last night.
    My thoughts are with Pieter's friends, his children and Suzanne (sister).

    I'm so say to hear this news. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and friends of which I am proud to be a part of. I hunted twice with him and always felt like a friend rather than a client.

    He will be missed by us all but most by his wonderful sister and his charming children who I know will be his legacy and keep hunting.

    It's at a time like this we should feel humbled by the fragility of life and get out there to live it.

    Rest in peace my dear friend

    I'm sorry to hear this. Condolences to his family and friends. My first wife died of ovarian cancer when she was 50. It's a terrible disease.

    Had the pleasure of hunting with Pieter and his crew in 2016. He was a pleasure to spend my time in camp with. All the best to his wonderful children.

    Very sad to hear this, I had the pleasure of talking with Pieter at SCI a few years ago, quite enjoyed his company. He will live on in the memories of those he leaves behind.
