The Bushveld Conservation Bureau


Welcome to our website

The Bushveld Conservation Bureau was established in Johannesburg in 1985, with our base in the Fourways area.  We are a not-for profit association and have an annual complement of more than 100 members. Our primary mission is to assist farmers who have “problem animals” on their land by using our hunting skills. When a farmer is faced with problem animals he normally has the choice of watching his crop or livestock be destroyed, or resorting to poison, gin traps or snares. We offer an alternative to these options as we can selectively control the problem animal population without damaging the environment or killing non-target species as poison would. We also supply the farmer with feedback on snares or other signs of poaching found, trespassers seen, sick or injured stock, damaged farm equipment or fences observed during the course of our outings.

We hold regular club shoots for all levels of skill, visit our "Club Activities" to find out more about the next upcoming shoot.

We are dedicated to actively promoting our cause and to providing you with relevant information. If you are interested in helping farmers control pests, click on our " Farm Booking Procedures"

Join us at our Wednesday night socials we get together every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at Norscot Manor, Bryanston from 20h00.
