However, we advise any prospecting new member to seriously consider NOT TO JOIN NHSA if you cannot be reached electronically on your own Email address (be that on a computer, iPad device, or a Smart Phone), as we ONLY communicate with our members through electronic means.
All your interactions with NHSA must also be done electronically - we have NO capacity to do any work on paper.
It is also unethical of us to take your money for a service we cannot 100% deliver in your favour.

Cost for dedicated status courses maximum R580.00 (VAT included) for combined dedicated hunter & sport-person course with study material in printed manual format. Please make sure to complete the application for the preferred Dedicated Status Course first. Enrol for dedicated courses on your Personal Natshoot Portal.

PLEASE NOTE: NHSA does not allow membership under the age of 13 years, except if there are specific reasons why a parent or guardian of such a minor would want that minor to have membership. An individual specific written application and communications procedure will be entered into with the parent or guardian when such a minor applies to join NHSA.
At NHSA we do not communicate with members through third parties due to our adherence to the stipulations of the PoPI Act (Act 4 of 2013)
