September 2015


 



FROM THE PRESIDENT'S PEN

 

CHASA is a very special organization and I am excited to be involved in the management team again. As we all know there are a number of serious challenges facing the future of hunting at present, and CHASA is the umbrella body that needs to face these challenges on behalf of all hunters. In order to fulfill this function, CHASA needs to be a strong, representative body that speaks on behalf of a significant number of hunters. One of the internal priorities of CHASA is therefore to grow its membership base.

Hierdie uiters belangrike funksie word op lidvereniging vlak uitgevoer. CHASA verrig oorhoofse, nasionale funksies en lidverenigings verskaf dienste aan lede op grondvlak. Dit is nie meer goed genoeg om op tak en lidvereniging vlak net ‘n lekker organisasie te wees wat lekker dinge doen nie, maar elke tak en lidvereniging het ‘n verantwoordelikheid om hulle ledebasis uit te brei. Hierdeur maak u CHASA ‘n relevante organisasie met ‘n groot magsbasis wat met gesag namens u kan onderhandel met die regering, SAPD en ander rolspelers.

Please strengthen our hand by making this responsibility a priority in your organization.

THE CHAIRMAN'S CHATTER
 

The “Driven Hunt” Debacle - Carte Blanche and National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
 

The South African Hunters Confederation (CHASA) has taken note of the posting by the NSPCA on their social media page as well as the expose relating to an apparent planned “driven” hunt near Alldays in Limpopo Province. We comment as follows:

The method of hunting loosely referred to as “Driven” and which this particular event appears to be based on does indeed occur in a number of biomes and for a number of species both in South Africa and globally. In these circumstances it is certainly a legal, accepted and sustainable hunting method and in certain areas has deep rooted historic and cultural significance. Both the NSPCA and Carte Blanche outputs relating to this form of hunting contain elements of sensationalism or emotionalism which we believe is perhaps a consequence of the drafters thereof having no proper knowledge of hunting methods generally.

We recognise however, that in this specific instance, in this biome and for the likely species, it is not a normal hunting method. While we have no direct further information, we surmise from what was shown that the landowners having recently acquired these estates as part of a land redistribution process are relatively new to the game ranching industry and are perhaps in need of some mentorship and guidance relating to their newfound opportunity. It is also quite conceivable that their prospective foreign clients come from a country where driven hunts are what they know, and perhaps asked for this, thus the combination of their lack of knowing of our typical “walk & stalk” style of hunting in that province plus the landowner or their management team wishing to satisfy the client’s wishes has lead them to a less than ideal method.

It must be said that animals will instinctively move away from advancing beaters, and will be that much further ahead should these beaters be rowdy. Having looked at the footage of the setup, we believe that if the animals are chased to the degree that they are actually running, there is almost no prospect of telling shots and we suspect the final bag will disappoint both hunter and landowner. Should however, these beaters be instructed to move quietly and slowly, there is every chance animals will walk probably some 500m or more ahead of the beater line and typically when reaching an open patch such as that cleared road, would stop on the fringes for a while before crossing, possibly affording anyone sitting with such a steady position to take very deliberate and telling shots here and there. This is said not to promote this as a hunting method, but to illustrate that the inferences that animals are going to be herded into mass firing zones where they would be “riddled with lead” and stressed to the extreme simply cannot be true. Nor can the statement that the meat will not even be used be true. In all instances with trophy or meat hunting the meat is never wasted.  Game meat already supplies many tons of healthy, sustainable and affordable protein in South Africa as more than 20 million hectares has converted from less efficient domestic stock over to game animals in the past 4 decades, resulting in a national ranched herd of game estimated to exceed 16 million animals.

We, together with other stakeholders in the greater hunting and wildlife domain, stand ready to offer our experience and assistance to these new entrants to this exciting and sustainable business, to help ensure their marketing and methods of hunting is done in a manner that is good for the wildlife, the country and their own profitability.

 
Stephen Palos
 

WHAT'S THE BUZZ ON SOCIAL MEDIA ...
 

Jeremy Mansfield, celebrity radio host has a following of over 34 000 on Facebook. He is extremely aggressive towards hunters and hunting. In answer to another generalisation by him recently, which ridiculously claimed research proving the desire to hunt and small male genitalia were related. CHASA Chairman, Stephen Palos responded:

Stephen Palos Jeremy I represent a lot of local hunters. I have noticed your rhetoric regarding hunting from time to time. You have a large following and are influential within a certain demographic, so what you say & do can affect things to a degree.

Your own forthright nature (such as when you directly label people a "doos") certainly animates the exchanges on controversial subjects, and I see then that many hunters return with VAT your curses. Frankly, this is only generating heat, not light, on the tedious old pro/anti-hunting debate.

May I suggest that you find some time in the near future (and I'm sure you are busy so recognise the sacrifice) to REALLY go engage with a few of the recognised stakeholder NGOs in the SA Wildlife sector. I am NOT saying that ALL is good within the sector, but sadly the tip of the iceberg, bad or misunderstood issues, have the potential to destroy something that is in fact quite magnificent. But for you to see all that will take a journey. You do not seem to fear adventurous, open minded journeys...

I must caution you; should your influence assist in destroying the activity of hunting the following is a likely consequence just within the South African context:

Of the 22 MILLION hectares of PRIVATE wildlife ranching land, about 1/3 "may" make it as pure photo-safari business. That is just about as much as our state protected areas, so the state would be competing for that eco-tourist buck and probably will come second, resulting in more constraints on state's ability to maintain conservation areas.

The other 2/3 would have no option but to revert to other land use. The better areas will change to extensive domestic stock (cattle, goats & sheep) To achieve that, about 10 MILLION head of game will have to go. The higher value animals such as sable may be relocated to the remaining wild spaces, but the vast majority of the common species such as impala, springbuck, blesbuck, wildebeest will simply be cull-harvested. Our national game herd will fall by about 50-60% (These numbers rose from just 500 000 in the 1960s to exceed 16 Million head in private ownership now)

The poorer land of the above mentioned will certainly be no good for much more than subsistence farming with the resultant overgrazing degradation we see in many places.

Employment on game ranches is about 2 ½ more people per unit than for livestock and pays typically nearly double the pay-rate. So, on these 15 million hectares there will be an immediate collapse of livelihood potential, resulting in more exodus from the rural to the urban areas. (Sort of like when big mines retrench, but on a much more massive scale)

Other than on the truly massive, extensive wildlife areas, the majority of the remaining eco-tourist farms will not be able to harbour many predators. Lion are largely out the question, and as many of the neighbours will now be stock farmers, leopard, brown hyena etc will be as popular as a pig in a synagogue so will be exterminated in the extreme. The nett result of fewer predators will require excess animals to be harvested somehow anyway. Will culling be allowed in this utopia of yours, or will starvation be the required natural solution on these farms?

Jeremy, there are hunters, non-hunters and ANTI-hunters. Hunting is NOT pretty. Certainly it is no spectator sport! I do not wish to make you or anyone into a hunter, but be wary of the possible effect of being an ANTI hunter.

Kind Regards
Stephen Palos
Chairman - Confederation of Hunters Associations of SA

Jeremy Mansfield Thank you for your erudite response Stephen. Unfortunately I can never condone killing for sport - ever.

Stephen Palos Accepted Jeremy and it was never my intent to get you to do so. What I do ask is that you take some time to FULLY understand the consequences of what will happen should you ever destroy hunting, and then perhaps without condoning it, not be quite so adamant to destroy it.
I reiterate; take the journey. I can take you some of the way, but for the full picture other non-hunting NGOs and officials will have to take you. PM me...

NOORDWES JAGTERS NUUS

NUWE TAK GESTIG

Op 20 Junie 2015 het Noordwes Jag ‘n tak gestig te Bloemhof.  Dit was hoofsaaklik ‘n SA Jagterstak gewees wat Bloemhof sowel as Schweizer Reneke bedien het.  Na beraming blyk dit dat daar potensieel tussen 50 & 60 lede in die klub sal wees, met Deon Beukes wat as voorsitter van die klub verkies is.  Die klub beskik oor ‘n Internasionale Kleiduif skietbaan wat tenvolle geakrediteer is sowel as ‘n geweer skietbaan wat oot 300m lengte beskik. Die nuwe lede is ook baie opgewonde dat hulle deel van die Chasa familie kan wees en daar word hard gewerk om alles in plek te kry sodat die klub ten volle op sigself kan funksioneer.
 
Junior Jag
In Junie tydens die winter skool vakansie is daar ‘n Junior jag aangebied te Ventersdorp. 23 Juniors het die kamp bygewoon waarby elke junior die geleentheid gebied is om ‘n blesbok te skiet, self voor te berei of te slag en die vleis te bewerk.  Ons het baie goeie terugvoer van die juniors ontvang asook hulle ouers.

Noordwes is trots om te kan se dat ons Junior getalle met elke Junior Jag groei en dat ons baie van Noordwes se kant af doen om die kampe aan te bied.
 
Skietdae
Op 18 Julie het Ventersdorp Jagters’n baie suksesvolle skietdag aangebied wat ongeveer 200 inskrywings behartig het en daar is meegeding met senterslag kalibers, kleiduif skiet, boogskiet en die .22 sportskiet wat daardie dag aangebied is.  Daar was pryse ten waarde van R12000.00 gewees.

Dit was ‘n heerlike dag gewees met braaivleis vure wat die heledag beman is deur braaiers wat sommer nuwe en selfs ou kennisse met mekaar gedeel het.

Die Bushnell/Tasco skietdag is op 8 Augustus 2015 te Klerksdorp aangebied by die Bisleyskietbaan. Daar was ongeveer 190  skuts wat ingeskryf het vir die kompetisie. Daar is na bok teikens sowel as gonge geskiet wat gestrek het tot 340 meter. Pryse ter waarde van R25,000.00  is aan die top skuts in die verskillende katogoriee oorhandig.  Ons het ook vele belangstelling van die publiek ontvang wat by voorneme is om aan te sluit.

Orkney Jagklub het op 15 Augustus 2015 ook ‘n publieke skietdag aangebied wat ook baie suksesvol was en wye belangstelling gelok het by die publiek.
 
Sportskiet
Aktiwiteite word tans te Klerksdorp, Orkney, Vryburg, Ottosdal, Ventersdorp, Westgold en Lichtenburg aangebied en die opkomste groei by elke aanbieding. Tans kan ons se dat ons alle vasette van sportskiet by Noordwes kan aanbied. By sommige takke word dit al tot 3 keer per jaar aangebied om die toegewyde skuts die geleendheid te kan bied om hulle statusse instand te kan hou.  
 
Ek is voorwaar opgewonde vir die mooi gesindheid in Noordwes Jagters en die goeie samewerking van die bestuur om al hierdie geleenthede moontlik te kan maak.  Ek is vol vertroue dat ons die nuwe seisoen met nog meer entoesiasme sal aanpak en probeer om nog meer hoogtes te kan bereik.  Ons is hier om die jagter te dien en na sy behoeftes om te sien.

LATEST NEWS

 

For the first time ever, on September 9th 2015, the CPW arranged a full day forum dedicated to the issue of sustainable wildlife management within the framework of  the  World Forestry Congress (WFC) in Durban, South Africa. The high level opening platform, as well as the four subsequent parallel sessions, covered a broad range of topics, the most notable being involving local communities in wildlife management, human-wildlife conflict, wildlife crime, and bush meat.

In his opening words, Mr. Braulio Dias, chair of the CPW and Secretary General of the CBD,
specifically referred to  the CBD Strategic Goal 4 as part of the “Aichi targets which encourage all Signatory Parties to the Convention  to achieve sustainable use targets by 2020”.
Jan Heino, CPW Vice-Chair and President of the Policy and Law Division of the CIC, presented the main outcome of the forum in a plenary setting of the World Forestry Congress. He thanked the session’s leaders, speakers, and audience for an outstanding forum which provided abundant, timely, and cross-sectoral information.

The main messages of the Forum:
 

  • Sustainable management of wildlife is an important part of integrated approaches to the multipurpose use of natural resources. It plays a decisive role in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals. Sustainable wildlife management provides crucial benefits for food security, livelihoods, natural heritage, biodiversity, and ecosystem conservation.
  • Combining knowledge, through multidisciplinary approaches and strong community participation, is required to properly design sustainable wildlife management programs that allow for the sustainable use of game and the trade of wild meat and other non-timber forest products. Legal frameworks and health protocols will be strengthened; law compliance, cross-sectoral collaboration, innovative market approaches, and best practices will be promoted.
  • The participatory role of local communities in wildlife management is vital and must be strengthened. This includes wildlife monitoring and the fight against poaching and wildlife crime.
  • The sustainable harvest of wild meat and other non-timber forest products is an integral part of conservation. It improves livelihoods, food security, and nutrition. It is crucial to gain a better understanding of the causes and effects of human-wildlife conflict based on in-depth analyses of each local situation. Only then can workable models be created to mitigate conflicts and raise the awareness of local communities to positively co-exist with wildlife.
  • Combating the illegal trade of wildlife requires:  (1) a coordinated effort at all levels to treat such crimes seriously by following the same protocol used to combat other serious crimes; (2) the involvement of local communities, recognizing that basic levels of security must be in place first in order for communities to benefit from the legal use of wildlife; (3) stronger interagency and cross-border collaboration; and (4) the deployment of innovative approaches, including the use of new identification and traceability tools, for the monitoring of wildlife populations, sustainable use, and trade.

The CIC organized an interactive and exciting field event in a separate afternoon session—the only excursion during the entire Congress! Participation was on an invitation-only basis, reserved for about 60 high-level experts of the Congress. The turnout was impressive. The excellent logistical support was largely provided by the local hunting association of KwaZulu Natal.

Participation was on invitation-only basis and reserved for about 60 leading personalities of the Congress. The turnout was impressive.

The main event of the excursion was a visit to a community/private sector game reserve called Tala Game Reserve, located about an hour north of Durban. After viewing the reserve’s abundant wildlife, the participants held a discussion on the reserve’s current concept as well as the future of sustainable use in not only South Africa but in Africa as a whole. The issue of rhino horn trade entered the discussion when the Government of South Africa requested to make a statement about the topic.
Ali Kaka, CIC Ambassador for Africa, acted as moderator. The panel consisted of three community members, Mr. Willy Pabst, and Dr. John Hanks. They stated their personal views on sustainable use, applauding the Tala Reserve as a model example. A lively, engaging discussion with participants evolved from there.
The conclusion of the discussions underlined, once again, the vital importance of sustainable use for the future of wildlife in Africa considering the increasing loss of habitat, and other forms of incompatible land use, illegal bushmeat trade, poaching, and poverty.

The CIC was highly commended for organizing this innovative event which definitely raised participants’ awareness of this pertinent subject.

PROBLEEMDIERBEHEERKURSUS

Suidkaap Jagters - Tuesday, September 01, 2015

Rooikat- en rooijakkalsgetalle op veeplase is steeds aan die toeneem. Vee – en wildboere verloor jaarliks miljoene rande as gevolg van skade onder kleinvee en wild. Navorsing toon dat landwyd ongeveer 5000 diere per nag deur probleemdiere gedood word. Aangesien roofdiere hoofsaaklik nagjagters is is dit geen maklike taak om die skuldiges op te spoor nie. Rooijakkalse is baie slinkse diere en boere moet metodes vind om die probleem aan te spreek om hulle te uitoorlê. ‘n Baie  effektiewe metode is die roepmetode. Dit verg egter kennis, ervaring en die regte toerusting en moet effektief en selektief toegepas word. Lees verder...

The Chairman's Chatter
 

The “Lion Thing” or The Enemy Within…


Dear Hunters


Between the release of the docudrama “Blood Lions” and the media frenzy relating to the shooting of a named and collared lion in a hunting area bordering a national park in Zimbabwe, there is hardly an individual who is not preaching some or other doctrine on the subject of hunting, and in particular the hunting of lions.


Please remember that we all have a responsibility to remain good and proper ambassadors of the practice of hunting. Also, remember that when you lack the facts, it is best to say so rather than spouting subjective opinion. The media is grabbing anyone with a “name” in the industry at the moment and luring them into meaningless debates where no possible good can come of it for the greater hunting & wildlife sector. Unless you are properly representative, with a firm mandate, of a recognised hunting body, you should rather refer the questions to an appropriate person.


Personally, I am aware that some predator breeders have formed an association which aims to self-regulate and clean up their “industry” to weed out the practice of canned shooting. I know that the Professional Hunters Association of SA have their own dynamic policy regarding captive bred lion hunting, and this is subject to constant review. I also know they have worked with the predator breeders to ensure responsible oversight of the whole practice. Further, government has taken their responsibility seriously and are extremely pro-active in the process of ensuring proper regulation of this sustainable sector of the hunting sector. For local recreational hunters such as the typical CHASA member, this sector holds extremely small interest as the vast majority of our hunting is for the more common antelope species, primarily with the aim to utilise the meat and any trophy being a welcome but secondary concern. It is my responsibility to ensure CHASA exercises their own oversight mandate as any untoward activity in a niche sector such as lion has direct negative perception consequences for all hunting. To this end I am always vigilant and involved in the appropriate forums.

What we MUST NOT do, is jump to condemn an entire practice just because it holds no interest for us. Lion is not a specie to be elevated to a mythical and preferred status of protection just because the vast majority of us have no desire to ever hunt one. If we allow emotional discretion to set in then be sure a time will come where a good emotional case will be made against you shooting that springbuck! We are not children, so don’t be fooled like one. If you asked any child who had just watched Disney’s The Lion King what happened to “Mufasa” you would hear the sad tale of his demise at the hands of his evil brother, somewhat like the killing of this “Cecil” in Zim. But conversely, if you asked if it would be ok to shoot the evil “Scar” you would certainly get the thumbs up!

Blood Lions will forever be a record of the worst of what man can do, and as hunters we must take the lessons and continue to strive towards higher standards and controls. The killing of the named & collared lion in Zim is the subject now of a criminal investigation, and we must hope and trust that truth & justice prevail. But these issues are not, and must not be, the label by which hunting is tagged.

Continue to practice responsible, legal, sustainable hunting and teach it on to future generations for it remains a legitimate intangible human heritage and the hunters who do it make the world a better place.

Dankie vir die Jag

Daniël Conradie - Junior / Herbert Conradie - Mentor
 

Ek was baie bly toe my pa my die e-pos wys dat ek ‘n jag met die gelukkige trekking gewen het. Ek kon kies tussen ‘n jag in die Karoo of Bosveld. Aangesien ek al saam met my pa in die Karoo en Kalahari gejag het, het ek die Bosveld jag gekies. Oom Robert Peachy, wat die kompetisie borg, het laat weet dat ek ‘n blouwildebees kan skiet by Abba Game Lodge, naby Modimolle (Nylstroom). My pa het vir Oom Chris Holloway by Abba gekontak en die jag gereël tydens die skoolvakansie van Julie 2015.

Oom Chris het  my pa meer vertel van die omgewing en plantegroei waar die jag sal plaasvind. Daar is baie bome en gras wat heuphoogte groei, dus sal ek uit die staande posisie moet skiet, en nie sittend, soos ek gewoond is nie. Gelukkig staan die bokke nie so ver soos in die Karoo en Kalahari nie. My pa het vir my ‘n lewensgrootte blouwildebeesteiken gekoop waarop ek uit die staande posisie geskiet het op die hart/long area met behulp van ‘n skietstok, op 50, 100 en 150m.

Ek skiet gewoonlik met 130gr koeëls met die Musgrave .270, wat ek by my oupa Johnnie geërf het. Ek het egter ‘n pakkie Sako Hammerheads 156gr persent gekry,  wat perfek is vir ‘n taai blouwildebees, en besluit om dit eerder te gebruik.

My pa het die lang en mooi pad deur die Oos-Vrystaat en Golden Gate gevat, sodat ek die Lammergeiers kon sien, wat net daar en in Lesotho voorkom. Na drie dae kom ons toe by Abba Game Lodge aan, waar Oom Chris ons welkom heet en na ons pragtige chalet wys. Ons kry hom 7h00 die volgende oggend en gaan skiet gou ‘n paar skote op ‘n teiken om seker te maak die geweer skiet reg. My eerste paar skote was ‘n bietjie laag en my pa moes die teleskoop ‘n paar klieks op stel. Toe Oom Chris tevrede is, ry ons veld toe.

Oom Chris het ons gevra om versigtig te wees, want daar is ook Koning Wildebees-splits, wat ons nie moet skiet nie (ons kon hul uitken aan hul rooi voorkoppe). Ons het eers met die bakkie gery tot by ‘n sekere punt en toe afgeklim en verder gestap saam met ons gids, Jafta. Oom Chris kon ongelukkig nie saam stap nie, maar gelukkig ken Jafta die veld en die diere se gewoontes goed, en was hy in direkte radioverbinding met Oom Chris, wat die bakkie beman het.  

Na omtrent 10 minute se stap deur die bos, het ons op die troppie splits afgekom, skaars 100m weg. Toe ons probeer nader beweeg, het hulle vinnig tussen die bome verdwyn. ‘n Hele ent verder sien ek ‘n trop blouwildebeeste aan die ander kant van ‘n oopte staan, wat beteken dat ons nie direk na hulle toe kan stap nie. Ons moes ‘n wye draai al langs die bome stap tot by die ander kant. Daar het ons hulle versigtig bekruip deur die lang gras en bome. By die naaste boom aan die trop, so 150m weg, moes ek vinnig regop staan en dooierus vat deur ‘n gerieflike mik in die stam. Voor ek egter kon skiet, begin die blouwildebeeste weghardloop, reguit in die bos in waarvandaan ons hulle die eerste keer gewaar het. Ons stap toe weer agter hulle aan.

Ons het hulle nog ‘n paar keer in die bos gekry, maar elke keer net voor ek skiet, hardloop hulle weg. Toe ons teen 11h00 se kant weer by die bakkie uitkom, eet ons eers ‘n stukkie en ek drink ‘n yskoue koeldrank. Ek voel sommer weer lus vir jag, toe Oom Chris sê ons moet klim, daar is heelwat ander troppe blouwildebeeste ook.

Na omtrent 15 minute gewaar ons ‘n mooi trop, maar hulle verdwyn vinnig tussen die bome toe ons afklim. Ons volg vir Jafta en kom skielik op ‘n troppie bontkwaggas af. Jafta sê toe dat die Blouwildebeeste baie saam met hulle stap, aangesien kwaggas beter kan sien. Ons hoor hoe takkies kraak en gewaar twee blouwildebeeskoeie wat deur die bome vir ons kyk, skaars 60m weg. Ek stoot die .270 se slot saggies toe en gebruik sommer die naaste boom as stut. Ek kan net hul koppe sien deur die nou opening in die bosse. My pa fluister dat ek vir ‘n kopskoot sal moet gaan en ek lê aan. Voordat die kruishaar egter sy merk vind, draai die koeie hul koppe weg en ek kan vir ‘n oomblik die een se blad sien. Tyd vir Pa wag was daar nie, en ek trek die sneller. Ek sien egter hoe albei koeie wegspring en onmiddellik verdwyn. Ek voel goed oor my skoot, maar Jafta kry net ‘n vaalrooi bloedspatsel. Hy en my pa begin die spore volg, maar ek soek eers nog bloedspatsels. Skielik roep my pa in ‘n gedempte maar dringende stemtoon. Skaars 50m van ons af staan die koei met haar kop omlaag en ek haal vinnig weer oor. Voor ek egter kan aanlê, val sy om. Toe ons by haar kom is sy reeds dood. Oom Chris, wat die skoot en die tref gehoor het, het intussen by ons aangesluit, en vertel my meer oor hoe om eer en respek te betoon teenoor die dier wat sy lewe gegee het. Terwyl hy die bakkie gaan haal, kniel ek en my pa saam by die blouwildebees en sê baie dankie aan God vir ‘n wonderlinge ervaring saam in die Bosveld, en dat alles goed afgeloop het.

Met die afslag sien ons dat alhoewel my skootplasing te ver agtertoe was en die hart gemis het, albei die lewer en longe getref is. My pa kry die koeël onder die vel aan die ander kant, mooi omgeklink en in een stuk. Die Hammerhead het voorwaar sy werk gedoen!
Baie dankie aan Oom Robert Peachy, wat die jag geborg het! Baie dankie ook aan CHASA, vir die R6000 petrolgeld wat hulle geborg het! Baie dankie ook aan Oom Chris en Jafta, vir al julle geduld, hulp en wat julle my geleer het oor jag in die Bosveld! Ek hoop ons kan eendag weer daar gaan jag.

BASA’s regular practical shoots are inspiring events; men, women and juniors compete shoulder to shoulder, (in appropriate categories), in our stress fire events that are specifically designed to test the firearm, the ammunition, the shooter, and interaction between the three in a challenging, but fun-filled and exciting format.

Our events include pitting the shooter against moving dangerous game targets in field conditions that simulate a variety of big game scenarios. The goal: Honing shooter and rifle to perfection for the rigours of dealing with African big and dangerous game.

The Big Bore Events are considered one of the best aspects of the Association by many, and our practical shoots are unmatched in fun, fellowship, and friendliness.

You don’t need to be a pro to take part either. Everybody is welcome at any level of skill, for one of the best and most practical Big Bore learning experiences ever.

Our Shoots Cater For These Calibre Categories:
Ultra Bore – .468″ +
Large Bore – .400″ – .458″
Transition Bore – .366″ – .375″ (+ larger calibre lever actions)

SUID-KAAP JAGTERS - EN WILDBEWARINGSVERENIGING

JAGSKOOL MET ‘N VERSKIL
 

Die afgelope skoolvakansie het gesorg vir groot opwinding vir 15 seuns vanuit feitlik die hele Wes-Kaap. Dit was tyd vir die tweede been van die uiters gewilde CHASA junior jagopleidingskursus van die Suid-Kaap Jagters- en Bewaringsvereniging wat reeds in 2014 begin het. Met drie swaargelaaide voertuie en ‘n bus het ons op 26 Junie vertrek na die Noord-Kaapse Kalahari. Deeglike beplanning was noodsaaklik, aangesien ons vir tien dae in die veld in tente moes kamp met geen fasiliteite, behalwe water. Alles moes saamgaan.. van veldkombuis tot badkamer en toiletgeriewe, skietbaantoerusting,  vuurwapens en natuurlik: die kos!

By aankoms is onmiddellik begin met kamp opslaan en voor donker het die kameeldoringvuur gebrand. Die eerste Sondagoggend is afgeskop met plaasverkenning met 4x4 bakkies in die rooiduine. Daarna is die eerste praktiese projek aangepak waar elke seun ‘n egte leer messakkie met die hand moes maak voordat almal ‘n pragtige STAHL jagmes ontvang het afkomstig uit die stal van die wêreldbekende mesmakers op Mosselbaai, Piet van der Westhuizen en Jan Nieuwoudt.


 Onder leiding van Len Nel is elke oggend afgeskop met ‘n stap in die veld om uit spore en mis te ``lees`` wat die nag alles in die veld gebeur het, tesame met interessante natuurlesse in flora en fauna. Baie tyd is op die selfgeboude skietbaan spandeer om die juniors af te rond vir die jagdag wat naderkruip waar elkeen geleentheid sou hê om ‘n springbok te skiet. Dit is ook voorafgegaan met praktiese kamoeflering, spoorsny, horingmeet, messlyp en vele meer. Intussen moes die studente in spanverband in die veldkombuis help met die heerlikste velddisse. Elke dag is onder leiding van kampmoeder,Elma Meyer,reuse potbrode in ‘n sandoond gebak. Tydens hierdie kursus het die seuns deeglik kennis gemaak met jag en kamp.  Mieliepap maak, groente skil, broodknie en vleiswerk is deel van die kursus en die kompetisie onder mekaar was groot en het gesorg vir ‘n wonderlike kampgees.


 Die kersie op die koek – die jagdag het aangebreek. Almal was opgewonde en deeglik voorberei. Binne drie ure was die springbokskiet afgehandel…15 junior jagters…15 pragskote…15 springbokke. Elkeen moes onder toesig van sy mentor sy bok keel afsny en oopsny. Die volgende dag was vleisdag, waar elke junior sy eie bok moes afslag, korrek opsny in die verskillende snitte waarna met die worsmakery begin is. Laatmiddag was alles afgehandel en ons was op pad om ons eie wors met springbokrugstring op die kole te gaan proe.
Weer eens was dit ‘n voorreg om betrokke te wees met die jeug, te kon leer by kenners en om vir ‘n tyd lank naby die natuur te kon leef.


 Baie dankie aan die opleidingspan: Wouter Marais,Wilhelm Zietsman, Johan en Riana Lindeque, Elma Meyer, Len Nel, Christo Engelbrecht en Sieg Minnie vir jul tyd en insette om vir hierdie studente ‘n ekskursie te kon gee wat hulle sal onthou vir die res van hul lewens. Dankie ook aan ons hoofborge: Chill Beverages, Margot Swiss, Plettenbergbaai Groente en Vrugte, Beaufort Wes Truckstop, Louis Oosthuizen, Groor Brak Busdienste  en vele ander kontantdonateurs waarsonder ‘n ekskursie van hierdie aard nie moontlik is nie.

CHASA Newsletter - July 2015


The Chairman's Chatter

Dear CHASA Members

There has been a lot of activity regarding firearm ownership issues this year. I have attended parliament on two occasions, and more hearings are scheduled after the recess. These relate both to the proposed amendments to the Firearms Control Act (FCA) as well as specific parliamentary oversight into a “turnaround strategy” at the Central Firearms Registry (CFR) Also, there have been various stakeholder meetings with senior police officials, up to and including the Deputy Commissioner of Police. Actions are underway to create formal, contractual stakeholder relationships according to Batho Pele principals
 http://www.dpsa.gov.za/batho-pele/docs/Know%20your%20Service%20rights/English.pdf
This development bodes quite well I believe.

On another front I was intimately involved in the formation of a proper forum for the various Sport Shooting Associations and we officially inaugurated the Sport Shooter Forum (SSF) on which Exco I serve as an “additional advisor” for the time being. I think this will be a valuable addition to our collective and unified efforts for firearm ownership generally.

There is also an initiative to list a set of all the regular bottle-necks and problems applicants deal with in terms of the CFR and other areas of firearm administration within SAPS. You may have noticed some other bodies (SAHGCA & SAGA to name just two) who have called for specific cases from members with problems. Rest assured, CHASA has, through the Hunters Forum, aligned ourselves with a long generic list of these various problem cases, and they will be “in the basket” when the special committee (SAPS & Firearm Representatives) start addressing them.


Good hunting and shooting.

Stephen Palos

Die Suid-Kaap tak van SAJSV het vroeër die jaar die voorreg gehad om die jaarlikse SA Ope aan te bied.  Jaco Brink (SWD Sportman van die jaar 2014) het met die louere wegggestap en is aangewys as die top skut in hierdie skietsport, wat baie gewild raak. Hy is ook deel van die Protea span wat later die jaar internasionaal sal meeding.
