The activity year runs from 1 November 1 to 31 October of the following year. Many members have participated in shooting and hunting activities during the year but have not recorded them on their profiles on the member administration system. Members are encouraged to keep their activity reports up to date.
Members with dedicated status who, for any reason, could not hunt or shoot this year, should inform SA Hunters via email for the association to issue non-activity reports.
Members whose dedicated statuses expire because they have not completed and reported the required activities are at risk of losing some of their firearms.
