23/1/15 - Hunting Report Card

CHASA has initiated a HUNTING REPORT CARD so that hunter offtake can be recorded during the season. CHASA will compile the information received from hunters and share it with SA Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources. Your personal details will not be provided.

Your participation will help to ensure future hunting seasons are based on a better understanding of hunting conditions and hunting offtake in past seasons.

Everyone who completes and returns a Hunting Report Card will go into the draw to win 100 cartridges of their choice, up to a value of $120.  CHASA will provide this prize.

Hunting Report cards can be downloaded here.


27/3/12 Quail Survey

Assistance is required from hunters for the continuation of the Stubble Quail reserach project.
An intiative of the SSAA, hunters are asked to contribute by collecting the head and wing of each bird and returning it to the SSAA for analysis. The survey will assist in providing vital information to ensure that quail hunting continues into the future.

5/10/11 Waterfowl and Wetlands Survey
CHASA member organizations participate each year with the annual Waterfowl and Wetlands Survey
This year the survey will take place from - Saturday October 22 through to Sunday October 30 2011.
The waterfowl survey is a relatively quick assessment of the duck population at 100 wetland sites each year. It's a great opportunity to visit your local wetlands, and provides us with some very useful information. Several different people can count at the same site, so please encourage as many friends /club members as you can. 

Useful Tips:
· You can count any time during the survey period
· Surveys of dry wetlands or 'zero' duck counts are still important results, so please send back your form(s).
· If your favourite wetland is large, select a manageable part of the wetland and fill in the AREA of wetland you counted (estimate) on the survey form. Please try to complete as many of the fields on the form as you can

Many of us will be out counting as intensively as ever, and we're counting on your help...
Download the
Wetland Sites for 2011,  together with the  Waterfowl data sheets.
Once completed you can email them direct to Paul Wainwright, or back to CHASA and we will forward them on to DENR.
