The old “Transvaal” was and still is known as that part of our country where one can come and collect a piece of biltong, while at the same time also try and hunt that special trophy. The South African people traditionally love the bush, and we always long for a silent place on the bank of a dry river bed to just look at the stars. We want to instill this love for the veldt and the campfire in our children – and what can be more rewarding than to braai a nice piece of meat out of the animal you hunted today?

THE BUSHVELD HUNTERS- AND GAME CONSERVATION ASSOCIATION was formed in August 1969 by small number of people who felt a need to meet on an organised basis to:

1. discuss matters of common concern,

2. to compare on a regular basis the trophies hunted in the hunting season, and

3. to help each other when and where needed.

The original number of members were only eight, and since then the organisation grew to almost 2000 members today.

There are the following categories of membership:

Main members, which is main member plus family,

Senior members, (adult members), and

Junior members, i.e. students studying full time with no income.

Our Association has 7 branches, namely : Kremetart in Messina; Soutpansberg in Louis Trichardt; Letaba in Tzaneen; Pietersburg; Potgietersrus; Waterberg in the Nylstroom area; and Magaliesberg in the Pretoria area.
