GAUTENG COVID LOCKDOWN: DFFE HUNTING REGULATIONS
This Newsletter Replaces our Newsletter Vol 17 (24)
of 29-06-2021 with heading: Hunting in Level 4 Lockdown (Gauteng 2021)
The Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment has today published Regulations regarding the crossing of Gauteng borders for hunting purposes, which reads as follows:.
- Inter-provincial travel to or from Gauteng is permitted for hunting with the primary purpose of obtaining meat for consumption, and culling
- Game parks, botanical gardens, zoos and aquaria are open to the public.
Members can read the Regulations as published in Government Gazette no. 591 dated 5 July 2021, HERE
We still advise that you try and get documentation from the farmer/rancher that you will be hunting with him/her for consumptive purposes, or that you will assist with culling. It just makes the paperwork better if you should be stopped on the Gauteng border.
Members can also use the form kindly made available by WRSA - download HERE
The form can be used for culling too. We advise that members rather have more documents than required with them for if they should be stopped in a road block (an ID document is compulsory).
We also advise that you make a copy of the Gazette and transport it with you when you have to travel over Gauteng borders to and from your hunting destination
We extend a sincere word of appreciation towards SAAI who played a large part in getting the Regulations worded as they are. Thank you!
Please travel safely and protect yourselves against the gogga at all times (it’s still all around us) !
Kind Regards, Natshoot Office
