Chris Phillips was one of those kids that could never settle to schoolwork. He was always dreaming about the outdoors and when he wasn't dreaming he was in the bush, which was not a good thing for the possums and rabbits he encountered.

He became (in his words) a shooter:
"My work history basically revolved around shooting. Now here, I wish to clarify an important point before one gets me mixed up with a real hunter. I have always considered myself a shooter more than a hunter because of the commercial implications of my actions and the resulting money that kept my finger close to the trigger. I spent most of my working life shooting with dog and gun, night shooting, trapping and occasional poisoning for Mount Wendon Pest Destruction Board, South Canterbury Wallaby Board and Environment Southland Animal Health Board. I've shot deer and pig for human consumption, hares and rabbits for the pet food industry and culls by way of private treaties with run-holders. Rabbits to roos and hedgehogs to harriers, anything that would pay the dollars. I wore out more than my share of 10/22s, Mini 14 Rugers and Remington .30-06 autoloaders?"

Outside of work hunting in a truer sense of the word has been an important part of his life whether relaxing or bringing up his kids and introducing them to the great outdoors while instilling an ethical attitude to the game they hunt.

Chris is currently working on endangered species programs in wild parts of New Zealand.
