The hunt followed a traditional European pproach in which beaters walk through the bush and drive animals towards hunters. An impression was created on social media that the game was being subjected to illegal hunting methods, which was not true, the association said.
The Limpopo Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism found no wrongdoing at the Polokwane farm where
the hunt took place. SAHGCA CEO, Fred Camphor, said reporting like that, “tends to paint all hunting in a bad light which is certainly not
desirable or justified. SAHGCA’s door is always open to the media and other organisations, and we will gladly provide them with facts about hunting in South Africa”.
