Note bag Limit is only the amount you take with you.

* = Allow special take off for damage control with special permit- max 5.

Daily bag limit for terrestrial bird = 20 bird with a maximum of 10 per species with a maximum of 40 in possession.

Booking for wingshooting is essential as we need to ensure that we have located the whereabouts of the birds as
they tend to move around and do not stay in a single location at any given time for long periods.

We welcome all wingshooters wishing to hunt some birds with us and ensure you that we have over the years
secured some of the best spots for the hunt.

The best advice is to rally up some friends who also enjoy wingshooting and book your dates with us in advance. The
more wingshooters on the ground ensures that the birds stay in the air and give everyone more opportunities at
taking their bag limit for the day.

The ideal group size is 8-10 wingshooters for 7day hunting. Remember a wingshooting safari can easily be extended
by 2 days of plains game hunting by pior arrangement.

Sunflower to driven hunts in our Gauteng, NW and Limpopo Province concession you can expect to have a thrill
time.

PigeonIf you really want to be tested by pigeons, you need to head to South Africa.

What's the most challenging bird to shoot? In Britain, most people would probably say a November downwind grouse. Well, now imagine those grouse on speed, and you've got the South African rock pigeon. The rockie also known as the speckled pigeon, is a little smaller than the woodie, but flies much faster. Whereas the woodie's normal speed is just above 30mph, the rockie's is upto 75mph – similar to the red grouse but
faster. It roosts in towns and on cliff edges, and flies out to feed, morning and afternoon, on whatever's available. At the beginning of the South African autumn, that's usually sunflowers, and the earliest ripening fields are a massive draw.

“ Rockies” can be as many as 70 thousand in a single flock on a good day. Wingshooters can expect to shoot upwards
of 500 cartridges each per day- even more,if your shoulder can take it” Rockies is quite a challence they fly upto
75mph
