SJB EN WILDMAN HOU SKIETDAG OP NOOITGEDAG

Suidkaap Jagters - Thursday, June 02, 2016

Suid-Kaap Jagters- en Bewaringsvereniging (SJB) het op Saterdag, 14 Mei ‘n baie geslaagde veldskiet op die plaas Nooitgedag van Koos Potgieter aangebied.  Die pryse is deur Wildman Hunting & Outdoor, gesetel in die Cape Gate sentrum in Brackenfell, geborg.  Daar was ook verskeie gelukkige trekkings gehou om almal die kans te gun om met iets huis toe te gaan.  Die trekpleister van die dag was ‘n Meopta teleskoop ter waarde van R10,000.00 as gelukkige trekking wat deur Freek Zeelie gewen is. Die opkoms was goed en die weer het ook saamgespeel om dit ‘n dag te maak om nie gou te vergeet nie.  Skuts het oor verskillende afstande na lewensgroot bokteikens geskiet;, twee van die bane se teikens was staalplate waarvan die verste op ‘n afstand van 335 meter was.  Die uitleg van die bane was nie moelik nie, maar tog uitdagend.  Daar was in vier kategorië deelgeneem, nl. Seniors, juniors, dames en veterane. Lees verder...

CHASA NUUSBRIEF DESEMBER 2015

Suidkaap Jagters - Tuesday, December 08, 2015

 


 



FROM THE PRESIDENT'S PEN

 
LOOKING BACK

 

The past year has been an eventful year for the hunting and wildlife industries. To a certain extent it has been a watershed year for our industry as the landscape within which we do our business has changed in many ways. The demands on representatives of CHASA have increased as we are required to make inputs on many fronts. We do not really have a choice in this regard as we will have to be engaged and visible if we want to stay one of the major players in the local hunting industry. We thus have to respond to signals from our external environment and we have to respond to the challenges.

Ons manier van jag is aanvaarbaar vir meeste mense, aangesien ons “biltong” (vleis) jagters is. Ons verbruik dus wat ons skiet en dit is meer aanvaarbaar vir die publiek as byvoorbeeld trofeejag wat deur baie van die publiek beskou word as ‘n manier van jag wat ten doel het om die ego te streel. Om die aanvaarbaarheid van ons manier van jag te behou en te bevorder, moet ons verantwoordelik optree en seker maak dat ons nie vir die anti brigade redes gee om ons aan te val nie. Ons moet besef dat dit ‘n voorreg is om uit die natuur te neem en ons moet nederig en eties optree.

Aan die einde van die jaar wil ek graag vir al ons verenigings en hul lede ‘n baie geseënde feesgety toewens. Mag u goed rus en die boodskap van kersfees in u lewe ervaar. May you also have a prosperous new year filled with many happy hunting memories.

 

Pieter van Niekerk

THE CHAIRMAN'S CHATTER
 

As the inevitable rush of early December gives way to the calm of the holidays ahead it is a chance to reflect on the year that was. In broad terms, this was not an easy year for many. Certainly most folk are feeling the economic pinch, and there is a real sense of angst in society with high crime, violence and international turmoil. Good news appears in short supply if one hops the various news channels.

Maar as jagters het ons die unieke voorreg om die spesiale dinge wat die meeste saak maak te waardeer. Nou is die tyd om, met liefde en toewyding, tyd met ons gesinne te spandeer en te geniet. Die kalmte en rustigheid wat 'n mens tydens 'n jagtog ervaar is seker een van die grootste geskenke wat jag aan ons as jagters kan bied.

Volgende jaar gaan daar baie uitdagings vir ons wees! Maar sal reg wees om dit aan te pak.

To each and every one have a safe, blessed and peaceful Christmas and New Year and look forward to again being the best custodian of planet earth when we return to our hunting activities in 2016.

WHAT'S THE BUZZ ON SOCIAL MEDIA ...
 

CHASA Chair Ad Hoc Statement to the 2nd Workshop on Intensive Breeding & Colour Variants

- 2 December 2015 - 
 

Although CHASA was not initially included as a presenter at the 2nd Workshop on Intensive Breeding and Colour Variations on Game Ranches held in Pretoria on 2 Dec 2015, after noting our displeasure in this regard at the start of proceedings, Chairman Stephen Palos was afforded a 5 minute slot to address the delegates just after the lunch break. This is a brief synopsis of what he said.

Hunting for the local South African hunter is not a product of Conservation Areas, as is the case in most other countries in the world, but rather a consequence of Private Farmers who have chosen to farm with wildlife. The massive escalation in game numbers in the last 40 years is as a result of a unique model, an innovation by South African farmers, that has made hunting readily and affordably available to the ordinary South African. The escalation not just in actual numbers, but also variety is a result of FARMING PRINCIPALS being applied to wild species. He noted that he himself may never get to hunt a buffalo, but sees buffalo, sable and other such species as certainly being available to his own sons at viable pricing as a direct consequence of these farmers. Only the wealthy few can aspire to truly wild hunts such as in Tanzania.

Almost every local hunter has at some time aspired to own his own game ranch. The fact is that farming for the local market with game would simply never be viable or else many more people would be doing it. These ranchers need other forms of higher revenue to help balance the income, and apart from true trophy hunting from foreign and even local hunters the only viable option is the intensive breeding of higher value species. To deny farmers these additional “arrows in their quiver” would render their business unprofitable. Mankind have been agriculturalists for some 12 000 years and there have been constant innovation and improvement in that time. There is no possibility of capping development now, simply because this particular chosen model happens to involve game species.

He acknowledged that there had been a spike in some hunting prices earlier this year, particularly after some seemingly astronomical prices were achieved for live breeding stock of fairly common species, but even before the season ended normality was beginning to return to prices and availability of hunting. We cannot interfere in the free market economy, but hunters must be circumspect about prices they are willing to pay. The market will certainly sort itself out in due course.

Should any real conservation risks exist as a result of intensive breeding and colour morph breeding, then these should be the subject of proper unbiased research with the invested industry (WRSA) and the Department of Environmental Affairs taking the leadership roles in this. Other stakeholders such as hunting and conservation NGO’s should exercise oversight roles, which could also be through existing forums such as HAWASA and the Wildlife Forum. He stressed that it is foolhardy to be soliciting a polarising debate on the subject prior to first completing this essential research. The way it is happening now the two “opposing sides” are going to each be rushing off to find or even “buy” science that supports their own stance. This does not bode well for the wildlife ranching or hunting sectors. Fundamentally, South African hunters must trust the farmers who have supplied the best hunting opportunities in the world to us for some decades now, and the farmers must continue to appreciate the local hunter as their prime revenue generator.

VRYSTAAT JAGTERS
INTERTAK SPORTSKIETKOMPETISIE

 

Vrystaat Jagtersvereniging het onlangs sy eerste intertak sportskietkompetisie gehou.  Twintig spanne, verteenvoordigend van ons takke oor die hele Vrystaat, het deelgeneem en die dag was ‘n groot sukses.  Pryse ter bedrae van R62 000.00 is ingesamel en elke span van die eerste tot die laaste plek kon iets kry.

Bloemfontein A het gewen met ‘n telling van 1945, gevolg deur Rietrivier A 1900 en Riemland met 1685.
 
Ons gaan dit ‘n jaarlikse instelling maak op 24 September.
 
Ons wil ander lidverenigings aanmoedig om ook so ‘n skietdag te hou – dit doen wondere  vir die gees en samehorigheidsgevoel in die vereniging en is ‘n uiters belangrike beelddraer van CHASA

           BIG BORE ASSOCIATION OF SOUTHERN AFRICA            

What a great year we had? We had so much fun and games this year, that we don’t want it to end. Luckily it is only the 2015 calendar that runs out but the days continue ad-infinitum. Therefore, as the Terminator said (modified): “We’ll be back in 2016”! However, we cannot forget what fun we had during the past year.

The 2015 ranges were so cleverly designed by Pieter Swart, that not two of the shoots were the same. If you take the limited space in which to design and create the challenging specialised Big Bore ranges in consideration, Pieter must be commended.  There were ranges designed for double rifles, magazine rifles, single shot falling block actions and combinations of the three! We’ve seen very good shooting and …. eehh …. not so good shooting! But at the end, we all had fun. The purpose of our shoots is not so much about winning but more to become conversant with your gun. Know your gun, its’ working, its’ strengths, its’ weaknesses and performance. Know your ability to manage the tool and its’ operating system with what comes with it.

The Eastern Cape chapter of BASA is going from strength to strength. Their cleverly designed challenging ranges were impressive.  This is a comment based on from what I’ve seen on the BASA FB page! From what I’ve seen, their simulation of real hunting scenarios is as close as you can get! The worst of these Eastern Cape oaks is that we can’t share in their fun!? It is a fact that I only had the opportunity to watch them on You Tube!  Maybe a few of us in the north should make an effort to go down there to participate in one of their shoots in 2016!

We had our last shoot of 2015 on Saturday 21 November. More that eighty shooters arrived with a fair amount of them first timers! Three ranges were set up and the first shots of the day echoed at 07h45. Range 1 was a 4-shot lion range and shooters had the opportunity to shoot it with Krieghoff double rifles of either 470 NE or 500 NE calibres on this range. These rifles were offered for the shoot by Magnum Arms. However, you could use your own rifle if you wanted to. Those that shoot the doubles enjoyed it tremendously.

The second range setup made for fun as a life size baboon target was set up at 25m with two clay targets hanging to its right. Now, a clay on a string is very temperamental because it moves in the wind and sometime turns sideways and offer a 1x8 cm target at 25 meters. If this sounds easy, do it while the clock runs, you had a miss feed, dropped a cartridge, struggle to close the bolt and hearing your buddies either cheering you on or screaming with laughter in the background! Did I mention that we at BASA are having fun at our shoots?

Range three was a very challenging “moving” range! That is target- and shooter wise! You were set up to shoot a pop-up hippo head in the brain (2.5seconds) at 30m from a sitting position. Then you had to stand up and shoot a side-on standing hippo, one brain and one heart shot. From there you moved to a third position to engage a “wounded” hippo at 30m with two frontal brain shots in 4 seconds! Simulating a charge, a similar looking hippo was to be shot at 15m with a brain shot in 3 seconds. Now this isn’t difficult if you have fully loaded magazine (5 cartridges) in your BRNO ZKK 602, 458 Express in your hands when the clock starts! It becomes a “bit” more challenging if you are only allowed to load one cartridge at a time for each shot! This was the equalizer between magazine-, double- and single shot rifles.

Some sponsors made it possible to hand out a few special prices in lucky draws and some items were presented to winners of different categories. We always appreciate their contributions and interest in our association. Although we are not high on competition, BASA still likes to acknowledge those members that perform well and achieved their goals in participation. The best shooters for 2015 were announced and they were as follows:

Top veteran: Anton Bell
Top Gun: Christo Els
Top Female: Lorinda van der Reyden
Top Junior: Ruan van der Watt
Top Girl: Sanchia Strijdom
Top Scribe: Bertus Els
Top 375H&H: Stephen Swart
Most Improved Shot: Phillip Venter

We would like to congratulate these performers. BASA would also like to thank each contributor to our course, all our members and visitors, the shooting and hunting fraternity and organisations like CHASA, for their valuable input and support during 2015. We wish our members, guests, sponsors and all above, a blessed Christmas and 2016.
