wing shooting

Wing-shooting in South Africa has gained popularity in recent years amongst hunters headed to Africa to fulfil a plains game or dangerous game hunt.

The bird species most commonly hunted in South Africa range from the sandgrouse and quail to the francolin, guinea fowl and various species of dove and pigeons.

Two species of geese are available – the Egyptian goose and Spur-winged goose can make for a particularly challenging hunt.

The best Wing-shooting opportunities are during the months of June, July, and August, which coincide with the open seasons in most of South Africa’s provinces.

Being a social affair, Wing-shooting is best done in small groups.

All species are not available in all areas, and local province restrictions may apply, so be sure to make your preferences known when booking your safari.
