About us


W&J DESEMBER 94wMISSION

To supply our readers and the main role-players in the game industry with relevant and up-to-date information in a reader-friendly format. In this way we strive to promote the concept of sustainable and economic utilisation of wildlife in general but more specifically in the South African environment.

Our target market is the "conservationist in practice": hunters, the game ranchers, wildlife managers and ecotourists, both Afrikaans and English speaking.

HISTORY

GAME & HUNT’s first edition was the December 1994 issue.  It was then called SA WILD/GAME and the overall objective was to promote the South African Game Organisation (SAGO) and to be of service to the game rancher.

The magazine is aimed at the broad game industry in South Africa.  The main role-players in the game industry, namely hunters, game ranchers and nature conservationists are served by GAME & HUNT with quality informative articles and columns covering fauna and flora; hunting and arms; game production and marketing; nature conservation and eco-destinations.  The reader is also kept informed about industry news – locally and internationally.
