Rules for Hunting with Safari Trails International
- It is by law that while hunting, no alcohol may be drunk during the day, not even a light beer with lunch. You may only drink alcohol once the day’s hunting is complete and rifles are safely locked away.
- An animal is determined if it is wounded or not, if any blood is found taking a shot at an animal, make sure you are comfortable with taking the shot, as any wounded animal must be paid for in full.
- If an animal is wounded, and you are not able to back the shot up, it is your PH’s responsibility to follow up with a shot if possible to prevent the animal from getting away and suffering. This is done at your PH’s discretion and is non-negotiable.
- When driving with your rifle in front of the vehicle, the barrel must
point downwards to the floor of the vehicle and must always be unloaded.
- You may fill your rifle’s magazine with bullets at the start of each
hunting day, but may only load on your PH’s instruction.
- When driving on a public road with your rifle to hunt on other ranches, it is by law that the rifle must be transported in a gun case and all firearms must be fully unloaded. ( e.g. no bullets in the magazine)
- If you are climbing over a fence, always check and make sure your rifle is unloaded.
- While you are walking and stalking animals, the rifle must always be unloaded and pointing up in the air or pointing to the ground.
- At the end of each hunting day, rifles must be handed in for safe keeping.
