The Cape Hunters and Game Conservation Association (KAAPJAG) was founded in 1984 by a group of hunters who were concerned about the preservation of game as well as specific hunting areas. Since then, the association has grown to become home to more than 3 600 hunters and sport shooters, who share in their love and passion for wildlife and nature.

KAAPJAG is affiliated at a national level to CHASA (Confederation of Hunting Associations of South Africa), representing more than 14 000 members and ensuring liaison with The South African Police Services, the Department of Environment, Forestry, Fisheries, and many other hunting and conservation-related bodies.

KAAPJAG’s objectives are the promotion of responsible hunting, sport shooting, and conservation.
