Newsletter for 2016 hunting season

It was a challenging year for us to do business. On all fronts there were attacks on our hunting industry, hell-bent on destroying it. We as hunters have big challenges ahead of us to save our passion. No doubt we in South Africa and elsewhere are also partly to blame for some of the attacks by the animal rights groups.

The breeding of artificial colour variants and intensive breeding of some species for trophy size, put and take hunting and hunting in small areas, no doubt also helped to put pressure on the SA hunting industry and gave us a bad name with international hunters. We in Shikra Safaris pride ourselves that we are not associated with these practises and strive to give our hunters a unique and personal African experience where it is not only about hunting, but also all the other aspects of nature surrounding it. We apologize for the quality of the pictures in the newsletter, but it was deliberately done to protect our hunting friends from possible attacks by the animal rights groups. I also removed many pictures from the gallery of our web-page.
