Hunting licenses
It is important for every hunter to ensure that he/she acts according to the hunting regulations as Specified for each province. Due to the fact that there are huge differences in the regulations of the nine provinces, it is important for every hunter to familiarise him/her with these regulations before going on a hunting trip. We decided to investigate the present
situation and after numerous phone calls to nature conservation agencies, game farmers, hunters and hunting associations, we managed to gather the following information. Please note that this information only applies to ordinary game for meat/biltong hunting.
A “Permission to hunt &transport venison ” form is required when hunting.

KWAZULU-NATAL
Hunting licences for ordinary game (impala,bushbuck ram & duiker)is valid from 31 May 2008 to 31 August 2008 (hunting season)and costs R8,00 per licence.Each hunter must apply for a hunting licence to hunt in the province. Should the hunting take place out of the hunting season,a separate licence is required and the price is R12,00.Special hunting licences are required for all protected game.

My ervaring is dat meeste mense wat met die permitte werk nie weet wat aangaan nie. In KZN koop mens jou visvanglissensie by die poskantoor en daar kon die vrou nie vir my se of ek 'n hengel of "spearfishing" lissensie gaan nodig he nie. Nie een van die plaaslike Ezemvelo Wildlife beamptes het geweet hoe om die hele vis met die boog skiet ding te hanteer nie.

Dalk kan die mense wat in die provinsies bly en weet wat om te doen ons bietjie inlig ...

Hier is 'n paar uittreksels uit die Mpumalanga Natuurbewaring Akte en die interpretasie daarvan deur Ludwig Swart, Manager Centralized Permits:

Artikel 18 Hunting or catching of wild animals in certain manners (1) (b) a bow and arrow or similar weapon or any other weapon

Discharging an arrow or dart: verbied die metode van jag;

Dit sluit dus Pyl en boog – Kruisboog – Pylgeweer(Dartgun) in.

Enige bevoegde persoon het egter die reg om aansoek te doen vir 'n permit om met n verbode wapen te mag jag wat op meriete

Oorweeg en toegestaan kan word.

Daar is wel wildsplase wat oor boogjag vrystellig beskik waar die grondeienaar skriftelik goedkeuring kan verleen vir die jag van

Vrygestelde wild spesies op sy permit vir die jag met pyl en boog.

Geen permitte sal egter oorweeg word vir die jag van die “ Big 5 “ Krokodil, Kameelperd, Hyaena nie.

Op skriftelike aansoek word daar wel permitte uitgereik vir boogjag op vis.

Artikel 53 Catching of fish otherwise than by angling verbied sekere metodes van hengel en Artikel 54 'Permissible tackle and bait' Bepaal die standaard hengel metodes.

Boogjag permitte word egter nie oorweeg vir waters onder die beheer van MTPA nie. (Natuurreservate soos Loskopdam, Nooitgedacht en Ohrigstad nie, asook verklaarde “ Fly-Fishing Waters” Artikel 65 (1)

Boogjag permitte vir vis is ook onderhewig aan n geldige hengellisensie, Artikel 56 Angling without licence.

Die lisensie kos R20.00 en is geldig vir een jaar vanaf datum van uitreiking.


Boogjag permitte is huidiglik nog gratis maar gaan in die toekoms wel n bedrag kos.

Die koste op jaglisensies word bepaal deur die betrokke spesie wat gejag gaan word en is in die wetgewing uiteengesit.

I looked at bow hunting in Kwa Zulu and was told that a proficiency permit was needed and controled by the KZN Wildlife Permit Office, this is a old law that needs to be changed but till then you have to get this permit.

These hunting regulations only apply to hunters using a gun. Bow hunting is a whole other issue in KZN. And seems that the guys enforcing the rules don't even know what they are... Could someone give a definitive answer?
