ISSUES WELFARE ORIENTATED AND CONSERVATION ORIENTATED CANNED SHOOTING – NOT NEGOTIABLE; BAN WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT – UNACCEPTABLE PRACTICE ALIEN SPECIES – PHASE OUT AND DISALLOW THE PRIVATE OWNERSHIP AND BREEDING (EURO WILD BOAR, FALLOW DEER, RING-NECKED PHEASANT) INDIGENOUS SPECIES ALIEN TO ECO-REGIONS – DISCOURAGE AND PHASE OUT (WARTHOG IN EC, BLESBUCK IN SAVANNAH)

5. ISSUES HUNTING ORIENTATED DAMAGE CAUSING ANIMALS IN LOWVELD CORRIDOR – ALLOW SA HUNTERS TO UTILISE THE RESOURCE ETHICALLY HUNTING IN NATIONAL PARKS – DO NOT SUPPORT THAT HUNTING IN APNRS – SUPPORT WELL MANAGED HUNTING AS PART OF POPULATION MANAGEMENT HUNTING IN PROVINCIAL NATURE RESERVES – SUPPORT AS PART OF POPULATION MANAGEMENT & NOT SIMPLY TO GENERATE INCOME; ALSO NOT IN LIEU OF OTHER ECO-TOURISM ACTIVITIES

6. ISSUES REGULATORY RATIONALISATION OF POLICIES AND PERMIT SYSTEMS – LACK OF THIS RESULTS OF LOSS IN INCOME FOR CONSERVATION, LOOPHOLES FOR UNETHICAL AND ILLEGAL PRACTICES, CONFUSION AMONGST HUNTERS AND REGULATORS ON PERMITS AND RELATED ISSUES. BASIC APPEAL FOR NATIONALISATION OF THE PERMIT SYSTEM IN SOUTH AFRICA. LICENSE THE HUNTER AND SELL ANIMAL TAGS. HUNTER’S ASSOCIATIONS CAN LICENSE THE HUNTER ALONG SIMILAR PROCEDURES AS FCA DEDICATED HUNTER ACCREDIDATION. HUNTING INDUSTRY FORUM WITH DEAT. NATIONAL CODE OF CONDUCT BASED ON SAHGCA, SA WINGSHOOTERS, CHASA, AGRED, ETC., E.G. CALIBERS VS SPECIES SPECIES MONITORING ON PROVINCIAL AND NATIONAL BASIS – SHOULD BE SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND AND COMPULSORY FOR PROVINCES. SELLING TAGS WILL ASSIST WITH TAKE-OFF MONITORING. LAW ENFORCEMENT ON CONSERVATION ISSUES – VERY POOR DUE TO LACK OF RESOURCES AND LACK OF INTEREST. MAKE PROVISION FOR PEACE OFFICERS IN TERMS OF CONSERVATION AND HUNTING.
