The way it works is two-person teams take turns in 30-minute intervals to find, stalk and kill the targeted animal with one shot. The team is finished when both members have taken a shot or the clock runs out. Bowhunting teams hunt separately from established blinds with a PH. The team that kills two animals with one shot each (irrespective of sex or horn size) in the least amount of time wins the contest.
This year's hunt takes place at the Forever Resorts at Loskop Dam northeast of Johannesburg. Contest activities include dinner events, an awards presentation and field trips to the schools and clinics supported by the One Shot Hunt Club. There's also an auction, which anyone can participate in by placing bids online at www.oneshot-huntclubsa.com. Up for auction are several hunts and game-viewing safaris in South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique, a bison hunt in Wyoming, taxidermy work and even a case of fine South African wine.
The One Shot Hunt Club South Africa is a registered non-profit corporation in South Africa and is affiliated with the OSHC Foundation, Inc, which is a US-registered non-profit corporation recognized by the IRS. The organization raises funds for school supply, computers, clothing and food for school children.
Interested hunters can still register for the event on the club's web site or call Kitscha at. The registration cost is $700 for shooters and $450 for nonshooters.
