    Welcome aboard Jaco Prinsloo. Please tell us a little more about you as a hunter. For instance are you considered a "Designated Hunter" by the SA government? What animals have you taken in the past? Do you primarily hunt for "biltong?" What caliber rifles do you own? Are you aware that there are several AH members that live near you?

    Hi, well I won't consider myself as a designated hunter but more as a occasional hunter.. I do hunt for meat purposes instead of biltong only. My aim is always to better the price per kilogram with game than one will pay for beef. Have recently done the math that for household use its much cheaper and it includes, biltong, drywors, steaks, boerewors etc.. Also depends on what game you choose to shoot and at what price and the carcass mass you get out..
    Have shot, Impala, blesbok, kudu, wildebeest and waterbuck.. However if by choice eland and gemsbok will be my preferred choices. But sometimes pricing plays a big role and the I am more likely to hunt female game as well as other species . Mainly my caliber use is 30.06 at 180gr rounds.. Mainly amaing for headshots as the meat loss is less to none.. I have a believe that, if i works, don't change it..You don't need the biggest or most expensive caliber to hunt. Whatever works when needed will do for me..
