Management / Cull Hunts

Management/cull hunts is an important part of South Africas successful control of healthy and sustainable wildlife populations. 

Most of the game in South Africa is privately owned and managed. Numbers of animals to be culled are established through game counts and vegetation analysis.

Large herds of springbucks occur in the Karoo flats and depending on the required number to be culled, we sometimes do driven hunts on these (minimum 2 hunters required). Other animals also regularly needs to be culled, which will normally be done by means of walking and stalking the animals.

Culling (except in some cases) is usually done on non-trophy animals, that being females or males with small “trophies”, (bad genes, broken horns or similar). This not only keep the animal numbers down at a sustainable level, but also help to keep the bad genes out of the blood-lines. 

If you are an incarnated meat hunter, and do not care about scoring trophy medals, then a management/cull hunt would be ideal and give you great value for money.

Please note that mangement/cull hunts can only be booked on demand.

Normally we can arrange culling of springbuck, impala, blesbuck and warthogs all year around, with the possibility of adding extra animals such as ostrich, kudu and wildebeest. Other cull animals may also be available on request. You can off course also choose to combine your cull hunt with trophy animals. Please contact us to hear more about the possibilities.
