As an American citizen , not a Television Show host but just a friend of those that provide sustainable hunting and jobs in South Africa !! Always remember Conservation Matters !!

A couple quotes to consider ; “

“ A hunt based only on the trophies taken,falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be”
Fred Bear

“In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsman “
President Theodore Roosevelt

“ I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy”
Ernest Hemingway



Founded in 2005, SITKA® Gear was an idea spawned by necessity. Like many stories, this one started out as an epic journey that culminated with a clear vision. After 3000 vertical feet in the dark, with intermittent snow flurries and driving sleet, the morning climb ended behind a gnarled White Bark Pine to get some reprieve from the elements and a little food in the bellies. Cold and wet with sweat from that climb, it was more than obvious that discomfort like this was unnecessary. So, on that September morning, at timberline, surrounded by bugling bulls, the vision that became Sitka was realized. Drawing on strong backgrounds in the climbing, mountaineering, and general head strong assaults of the backcountry, expertise and experience were focused on bridging the gaps that existed between these endeavors. Sitka's driving goal is to not only bridge the technology gaps that existed from a fabric, construction, and product form perspective, but to fully immerse ourselves in driving new technologies and solutions for the modern outdoorsman. Our roots are in the mountains, but our solutions are global and the Dark Continent is no exception. Our vision is to redefine the persona of the hunter by being the most influential and most respected technical hunting and lifestyle clothing manufacturer and marketer in the world.

We could say that we simply make the best high-performance system of hunting clothes on the market, but it's more than just quality It's a philosophy: Turning Clothing Into Gear!

Limpopo Hunters Liaison Forum LHLF

The Limpopo Hunters Liaison Forum (LHLF) was formed in 1996 as the discussion platform between Limpopo Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET) and the Limpopo Hunting Outfitters. This forum of Hunting Outfitters, Professional Hunters and associated role-players liaises with LEDET on issues involving challenges and suggestions for the Limpopo hunting industry. In 2007, the training branch of the LHLF was formed with the purpose of training PDI Professional Hunters. Funding to train these PHs comes from the voluntary R5 000 levy paid by Outfitters when successfully applying for a CITES leopard tag. During 2014, the Leopard Hunting Zone system was introduced by LEDET, based on available scientific research provided by Panthera. The system was not perfect and additional ongoing research from the private sector was imminent. Dr Bennie Mzileni Maruping was appointed to represent the private hunting sector in South Africa at the South African National Biodiversity Institute. Research funded by the industry is a huge indication of Hunters Care. Consequently, the Conservation Research Fund was born. The LHLF also realises that, by involving all role-players, a better environment can be created to conduct the ultimate goal of responsible and sustainable hunting practices in an ever-changing world, where social media and political influences have to be taken into account.
