Trophy of the Day
Common Springbuck

Springbuck / Springbok

The Springbuck is brown and white antelope-gazelle found in the South Western parts of Africa. Before the 1994 democratic elections in South Africa it was one of their national emblems. The South African rugby team still uses it as part of their emblem and are still recognised all over the world as the Springboks. The marsupialis epiphet derives its name from the pocket like skin flap that runs along the middle of its back from the tail onwards. Male animals trying to show their strength or to attract mates will go on a stiff-legged trot, while jumping in the air with and arched back and lifting the flap along its back. This ritual is known as stotting or pronking in the Afrikaans language.

Game Capture and Breeding

The most essential part of a successful hunting or game farm is the amount of game available to hunt or to view.  Numbers alone however won’t result in a success.  The game has to be well bred with good genes and be able to withstand the conditions where they are kept.

Equally as important is a proper game fence.  There is no sense in buying that prised bull or ram just to realise the next morning it has relocated itself to the neighbour’s farm as a result of an inadequate fence.

Therefore SA Hunt and Game aims to provide a link for farmers for Game Capture and Breeding. This will not only benefit the farm owner but the hunter or tourist as well.

Below is a list of Game Capturers and Breeding Farms.  For more information please visit the website or click on the name for the SA Hunt and Game website.
