Purpose of SAHGCA shooting exersices

The purpose of the SAHGCA shooting exercises is for hunters to achieve the ideal situation of a one shot kill when they hunt. A responsible hunter must be aware of his/her limitations, which can only be established through regular practice and responsible actions (applying common sense) while out hunting.
SAHGCA provides regular opportunities for members to practise and develop their shooting skills to equip them with the necessary skills and confidence to hunt. The shooting exercises have been developed to imitate various hunting conditions of an assortment of species using different hunting rifles. The shooting exercises are aimed at imparting the following specific skills:
• Safe handling of a firearm: applying the same firearm safety rules that have been practised on the shooting range to ensure a safe hunt
• Use of aids: shooting sticks to improve accuracy
• The ability to shoot with confidence from a variety of positions, i.e. sitting, prone, or standing positions.
• Minimum calibre for certain species in certain shooting exercises: i.e. using 6.5 mm calibre for the Bushveld Shooting Exercise (blue wildebeest/zebra) under Bushveld conditions, and the 9,3 x 62 mm Mauser as the minimum calibre for the large calibre shooting exercise (buffalo)
• With continuing shooting practice from different positions at the shooting range, hunters develop shooting skills that will enable themr to determine where and when to shoot at their quarry. This assists the hunter in gaining confidence in his skills and becoming aware of his/her limitations.
