Dear KAAPJAG Dedicated Hunter,


The Firearms Control Act (Act 60 of 2000) and the accompanying Regulation No: 4, determines that an accredited association must on a regular basis evaluate their members regarding their bona fides to be or remain a dedicated member. The association is compelled by law to determine whether its dedicated members have been active and submitted a report of their activities. Annually, on the 31 December, the association must submit a report to the Registrar of members who failed to maintain their dedicated status. Please remember that you must be able to prove use/participation when renewing your firearm licenses. It is therefore crucial that every dedicated member should maintain a record of activities.

We thank those Dedicated Members who have already submitted reports or logged activities on Hunters Log.

Requirements to retain dedicated status:

  • Cape Hunt dedicated hunters and sport shooters must be paid up in terms of their membership fees and must, have participated in two activities during the preceding 12 months.
  • Members who acquired dedicated status after completing the dedicated examination or, acquired dedicated status during 2022, do not have to submit a report for 2022, as the written exams and shooting tests are considered as sufficient activities.

Suitable activities to maintain dedicated HUNTER status:

Two activities required to maintain your dedicated hunter status.

  • All shooting events presented by Cape Hunt and/or other official events/functions of the association.
  • Any hunting- and/or hunting related activity that can be proven by means of a hunting license, letter of permission to hunt, photographs or a similar document.

Suitable activities to maintain dedicated SPORT SHOOTER status:

Two activities required to maintain your dedicated sport shooter status.
