Our association's purpose is to promote responsible hunting, sport shooting and conservations of wild animals and wild places.

The Cape Hunters and Game Conservation Association (KAAPJAG) was established during 1984 by a group of hunters who were concerned about the preservation of game and the access to hunting places. Since then, the association has grown to become home to more than 3 600 hunters and sport shooters. 

In terms of the Firearms Control Act No 60 of 2000, The Cape Hunters and Game Conservation Association is accredited as a hunting and sport shooting association and may certify dedicated hunters and sport shooters. 

The association headquarters are situated in Durbanville and act as a centralised administrative centre for all our members. Our members mostly reside in the Western Cape of South Africa, but not exclusively. KAAPJAG has nine branches, geographically situated, in order to bring services closer to the members. The branches are all governed by a team of enthusiasts who reside within the branch area of influence. The branches are responsible for all member activities in the association, like members evenings, training, shooting events/competitions and workshops.

In terms of the Firearms Control Act 60 of 2000, membership can be divided into two distinct groups, namely:

Section 15: Occasional Hunters and Sport Shooters

In terms of the Act an occasional hunter or sport shooter may not possess more than four firearms. He/she may not possess a restricted firearm (semi automatic rifle or shotgun) and may not possess more than 200 rounds of ammunition for any firearm license, unless he/she obtains a permit to exceed the said limit.

Section 16: Dedicated Hunters and Dedicated Sport Shooters

Please visit our Dedicated Hunter and Dedicated Sport Shooter pages to view comprehensive information on how to acquire and maintain Dedicated Hunter and Dedicated Sport Shooter statuses.

Currently, there is no restriction on the number of firearms or ammunition a dedicated person may possess, however the status granted to such member must be maintained. If a dedicated member fails to remain in good standing with the association, such member loses the right to own the firearm which was licensed to him/her under Section 16 of the Act. Good standing means that the member must continue to be a member and submit sufficient activities annually to be compliant. A report must be submitted to the authorities annually of members who failed to remain in GOOD STANDING.
