SA Jagters Nuusbriewe

Uiteindelik het 2019 se jagseisoen aangebreek en skielik gaan dit so effens makliker hier in die kantoor. Lede is nou meer ingestel op jag as administrasie en ons kom dit agter aan die volume korrespondensie wat so `n klein bietjie minder raak die tyd van die jaar. Daar is ook duidelik `n koeligheid in die lug wat aandui dis die tyd om biltong op te hang.

 

Verkiesing
Die verkiesing is afgehandel en die resultate bekend. By die skryf van hierdie nuusbrief is die nuwe kabinet nog nie aangewys nie en ons weet daarom nog nie of ons dalk `n nuwe Minister van Polisie gaan kry nie. Ons sal maar die pers dophou en standpunt inneem soos die tyd ons toelaat vorentoe. Ons glo dat ons nie te lank gaan wag nie.

The 2019 hunting season has finally arrived. Our members’ focus has shifted from administration to hunting and we are experiencing a decline in the correspondence at our national office. The crispness in the air is also an indication that it is time to make biltong.


Election
The election is done and dusted, and the results are known. At the time of writing this newsletter, the new cabinet is yet to be announced and we have no idea if there will be a new Minister of Police. Let’s keep an eye on the press. We should know soon.

Skielik is ons by die einde van April en die jagseisoen is hier. Ek vertrou dat elkeen van ons lede genoegsaam voorbereiding gedoen het vir die jaggeleenthede wat nou ernstig aandag gaan kry. Maak asseblief seker dat u optrede in die jagveld en ook andersins absoluut veilig sal wees.

Autumn is in the air and the first leaves are already falling. The morning breeze is considerably cooler. Sadly, large parts of the western regions of the country are still suffering from a drought. A farmer from the Namakwaland region told me last week that they had not had any rain for the last nine years. We keep them in our thoughts and try to help where we can.
