Shaun Catton - McClain Lodge Hunting Guide & Professional Hunter
McClain Lodge is pleased to introduce Shaun Catton, our Professional Hunter from Zimbabwe. Shaun was born into a true African hunting family with hunting in his blood. From an early age, he roamed the bush with his family's native tracker. There he learned to understand the bush and the animals that live in it. It was on those hunting trips where Shaun honed his skills and developed a deep passion for the outdoors. After a few years of living in England for school, Shaun returned to Zimbabwe where he received his Pro Hunters License. He has guided numerous hunters on many Safaris for animals great and small. Shaun also has a South African Hunters license and has hunted both Zimbabwe and South Africa extensively. "Shaun was my Professional Hunter in Zimbabwe, and it is great to have him as our PH at McClain Lodge Hunting. He is truly an expert in his field. He trains our guides extensively," notes owner, Buddy McClain.
