    Bec Brammer hunts South Africa


    It doesn’t matter how much you read or how many people you talk to you can never truly understand something until you have witnessed or experienced it firsthand.

    After a recent trip I can now say that I am lucky enough to have seen how hunting in South Africa benefits the wildlife, the people and the country as a whole. Coming into the trip I hadn't realised that in South Africa there is very little public land where animals can live. The small amount of land that does exist is heavily poached, so heavily that the animal numbers are almost non-existent. Unfortunately I learned that the poaching can be just as bad on the Private Game Reserves.

    What do people envision when you say South African Hunting Property? I've heard all sorts of terms used by the media, hunters and the general public. Things like 'canned hunt' and 'shooting fish in a barrel' come to mind. People think high fences, paddocks, pens, enclosures, small areas, even tame animals. Well that wasn't my experience.
