  • Training for hunting staff:
Attention all Hunting Outfitters, following requests from Hunting Outfitters the Sutherland Hunting Academy will be presenting a hunting guide and professional hunting course for employees in their employ.  The courses will take place from Monday 17/02 to the 24/02 (7 days) for the Hunting Guide course and will be immediately followed by the Professional Hunting course (14 days) up to the 11th of March.  Students do not have to attend the Professional Hunting course as well since the Hunting Guide course is a stand alone course that also serves as an introductory course to the Professional Hunting course.  The course will be presented at the Academy in the Vaalwater area. 
For more info please contact David Sutherland at or 0833258956.
