South Africa Hunting Licenses Information (including some info for Namibia)
Every South African hunter should ensure that he/she acts according to the hunting regulations as specified by each province. Due to the fact that there are big differences in the regulations of the nine South African provinces, it is important for every hunter to familiarize him/her with these regulations before going on a hunting trip. For this reason, the South African Hunters and Game Conservation Association (SAHGCA) decided to investigate the present situation and after numerous phone calls to nature conservation agencies, game farmers, hunters and hunting associations, managed to gather the following information. Please note that this information only applies to ordinary game for meat/biltong hunting.

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
