Should this be adressed by PHASA as well as us hunters, dont you think that there has to be a law to determine PAC hunts, and rules by PH asociations, how could it not be a red light if the same property gets 3 cheetah, two leopard and one lion PAC permits in the same month?
I am no Politician expert, but politicians everywere have the same tendencies, If there is only one person in the goverment in charge of issuuing this pac licences, there is for sure going to be a problem and a tendency, if there is a board issuing this permits and if the board is knowledgable of the topic, That will work ,,, what I mean is, Could this special PAC permits be issued or aproved by PHASA or any other PH asociation where aplicable?, this could end a lot of problems,,,

Its a good idea but just a dream at the moment no one is forced to join PHASA so what to do with a PH who is not part of PHASA ?

All I can say is this when you venture into PAC stuff it shouldnt be your first trip and it should be with an outfitter you have worked with before or as high credentials. And do your homoework for that discount in the price do some work on your side phone and send emails everywhere. If its a dogdy deal the ph will soon find out you are on his case and back out himself.

Hey guy’s

I think Frederik mentioned something very important here it is not mandatory to join PHASA.

Now PHASA can take responsibility for their members but if only halve of the operations in South Africa are members of PHASA it makes things difficult?

PHASA like any other organization needs funding so obviously the more members they have the more funds they have available to hire staff that will enforce the hunting laws of South Africa and also insure that clients as well as Outfitters are protected?

It would be a great idea to get PHASA involved in the whole PAC thing but that can only happen if we support them in return.

Best Regards
Louis van Bergen

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
