About our Branches

SA Hunters (SAHGCA) is a voluntary member association that is managed by members at branch level. Each branch organises a variety of activities to suit the needs of its members. These include organised shooting days and competitions, shooting skills and related training, conservation activities, hunting opportunities, and social gatherings.

Family participation is part and parcel of branch activities where every member of the family can experience and take part in the SA Hunters culture of firearms, shooting, hunting and conservation.

Oor ons takke

SA Jagters (SAJWV) is ‘n vrywillige, lede-organisasie wat deur lede op takvlak bestuur word. Elke tak organiseer ‘n verskeidenheid aktiwiteite om aan die behoeftes van sy lede te voldoen. Dit sluit georganiseerde skietdae en kompetisies, skietvaardighede en verwante opleiding, bewaringsaktiwiteite, jaggeleenthede, en sosiale byeenkomste in.

Gesinsdeelname is deel van takaktiwiteite waar elke lid van die gesin die SA Jagters-kultuur van vuurwapens, skiet, jag en bewaring kan ervaar.

Join a branch

The 80+ branches are distributed countrywide in every province. New members are immediately welcomed into the SA Hunters branch community and are invited to participate in the activities to experience the full spectrum of the Association’s services and benefits.

Branches communicate their activities and events calendar in monthly newsletters, WhatsApp and on their Facebook pages. Each branch elects a management committee with dedicated portfolios for the various activities that it offers. Members can liaise directly with the branch chairperson or other elected committee members for information and assistance to enjoy the full benefit of SA Hunters’ membership and participation at branch level.

Sluit aan by 'n tak

Die 80+ takke is landswyd versprei in elke provinsie. Nuwe lede word dadelik verwelkom in die SA Jagters takgemeenskap en word uitgenooi om aan die aktiwiteite deel te neem om die volle spektrum van die Vereniging se dienste en voordele te ervaar.

Takke kommunikeer hul aktiwiteite en program in maandelikse nuusbriewe, WhatsApp en op hul Facebook-bladsye. Elke tak verkies ‘n bestuurskomitee met toegewyde portefeuljes vir die verskeie aktiwiteite wat dit aanbied. Lede kan direk skakel met die takvoorsitter of ander verkose komiteelede vir inligting en hulp om die volle voordeel van die SA Jagters se lidmaatskap en deelname op takvlak te geniet.

Branch Activities

Individual branches show creativity and innovation to provide services to their members. The Vrystaat Sandveld Branch at Soutpan is located in the heart of an agricultural community and provides services primarily to members who are farmers. Shooting days at this branch involve the entire family and usually end with a social braai once the meetings and shooting activities for the day are done.

City branches may structure their activities differently to accommodate the lifestyles of their city dweller members. Their shooting days are on Saturdays and the social activities are held on week evenings. Each branch structures their activities to meet the needs of its members in the best possible way.

Takaktiwiteite

Individuele takke toon kreatiwiteit en innovasie om dienste aan hul lede te bied. Die Vrystaat Sandveld-tak by Soutpan is geleë in die hart van ‘n landbougemeenskap en bied hoofsaaklik dienste aan lede wat boere is. Skietdae by hierdie tak betrek die hele gesin en eindig gewoonlik met ‘n sosiale braai nadat die vergaderings en skietaktiwiteite vir die dag afgehandel is.

Stedelike takke struktureer  hul aktiwiteite gewoonlik anders om by die lewenstyl van stedelinge aan te pas. Hul skietdae vind plaas op Saterdae en die sosiale aktiwiteite word op weekaande gehou. Elke tak struktureer sy aktiwiteite om aan die behoeftes van sy lede op die beste moontlike manier te voldoen.

Involving the Youth

The youth is our future. They will eventually take over the responsibilities to run the Association according to members’ needs and expectations. As hunters and nature lovers it is important that we equip youngsters to appreciate conservation, hunting, firearms and nature.

The challenge remains to stimulate their interest sufficiently to get involved in these activities. Parents that take their children on camping holidays, visit game reserves, go on hunting excursions, and participate in SA Hunters’ activities at branch level, establish a good foundation for youngsters to develop their skills and to nurture their passion for nature and wildlife. This will enable them to take charge of the Association’s culture and its conservation legacy into the future.

The importance of involving youngsters at an early age in branch activities cannot be emphasised enough. Active members usually include their children in branch activities. Some branches have been successful in reaching out to youngster from their communities that have no link to the Association. Through proper mentorship and good leadership, these unattached youngsters can become valuable members of the South African Hunters and Game Conservation Association and the leaders of the future.

Betrek die jeug

Die jeug is ons toekoms. Hulle sal uiteindelik die verantwoordelikhede oorneem om die Vereniging te bestuur volgens lede se behoeftes en verwagtinge. As jagters en natuurliefhebbers is dit belangrik dat ons jongmense toerus om bewaring, jag, vuurwapens en die natuur te waardeer.

Dit bly ʼn uitdaging om hul belangstelling voldoende te stimuleer om by hierdie aktiwiteite betrokke te raak. Ouers wat hul kinders saamneem op kampvakansies, wildreservate besoek, jagtogte onderneem, en deelneem aan SA Jagters se aktiwiteite op takvlak, lê ‘n goeie grondslag vir jongmense om hul vaardighede te ontwikkel en hul passie vir die natuur en die wildlewe te kweek. Dit stel hulle in staat om die Vereniging se kultuur en bewaringserfenis in die toekoms te lei.

Die belangrikheid om jongmense op ‘n jong ouderdom by takaktiwiteite te betrek, kan nie genoeg benadruk word nie. Aktiewe lede sluit gewoonlik hul kinders by takaktiwiteite in. Sommige takke het sukses gehad om jongmense uit hul gemeenskappe wat geen band met die Vereniging het nie, te bereik. Met die regte mentors en voorbeelde, kan hierdie onverbonde jongmense waardevolle lede van die Suid-Afrikaanse Jagters- en Wildbewaringsvereningings en die leiers van die toekoms word.
