providing a home for the professional hunter

As an accredited Professional Hunters Association, SA Hunters represents the professional hunters on various governmental committees and task teams, making sure that an enabling environment is created to effectively comply to their needs. SA Hunters also serves on several relevant international committees representing the needs of our members.

Registration for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

SA Hunters informed professional hunters last month that the SAQA unit standard for professional hunters will expire on 30 June 2024. However, the registration date for the recognition of prior learning has been postponed to 30 June 2025 giving professional hunters more time to register.

What we offer

  • SA Hunters offers our members services relating to firearm licensing and renewals for schedule 16 firearms for the purpose of professional hunting.
  • Our online personal profile system also sends reminders when application or renewal for professional hunters permits are due.
  • We are also a member of the Operators’ and Professional Hunters’ Associations of Africa (OPHAA) that adheres to the highest code of conduct

SAHGCA Code of Conduct for the Professional Hunter

As a Professional Hunter and a member of SA Hunters, I promise to observe the following:

  • Heed all written and unwritten hunting laws and regulations;
  • Never take anything from nature that I am not entitled to;
  • Acknowledge and respect the rights and interest of landowners and local communities;
  • Hunt with compassion and only use from nature that which is sustainable;
  • Actively conserve fauna and flora, soil and water that represents life, and treat it with respect and care;
  • Use a firearm competently and with discretion and respect for life;
  • Hunt with humility, respect my fellow hunters, and promote the hunting heritage;
  • Always behave with honesty and sincerity and do not allow profit-seeking to detract from these principles;
  • Never mislead a client or attempt to deceive him/her;
  • Always try to deliver on the services agreed upon with clients and to ensure their safety; and
  • Never behave in a manner that will bring the good name of SA Hunters and its member into disrepute.

I am committed to abide by this Code of Conduct and to respect and promote all the Association’s policies (e.g., the Association’s position on the intensive breeding of indigenous species and the hunting of game that are products of these intensive breeding practices, but not restricted to) and not to get involved in activities that go against any of these policies. I accept that should I disregard any of the above, my status as Professional Hunter within SA Hunters could be suspended, or my membership of SA Hunters could be cancelled summarily.
