Als gebeur in dries / Everything happens in threes

 Ek gebruik gereeld die gesegde, “Verandering is die enigste konstante”.
So ook was die temas van my vorige drie rubrieke “Ervaar iets anders”,
“Avontuur” en “Iets om te ervaar”. Covid-19 en die staat van inperking
voldoen sekerlik aan dié drie stellings. “Ervaar iets anders” is vanselfsprekend, dus wys “Iets om te ervaar” dat daar selfs ’n hoogtepunt kan wees van “Ervaar iets anders” – dus sekerlik ook ’n avontuur op sy eie, net soos om te jag of met die natuur te werk. Covid-19 has taught us another three important things: you will die, you have to eat, and the importance of toilet paper! But crisis moments also create opportunity.
The use and flexibility of technology will be appreciated much more in
these trying times, which is what you are doing right now while reading a digital copy of GAME & HUNT magazine. People have now learned to work together and share because of certain restrictions, which will show mankind it is possible indeed to have less division (polarisation). The third of many opportunities is that most people will have a new appreciation for the outdoors and life’s other simple pleasures. Mens kan ook sê alles gebeur in dries, en dat die vierde gebeurtenis bloot die eerste een van die volgende drie is. Dit is moeilik om te besin oor die impak wat Covid-19 wêreldwyd gaan hê, veral wat die wild- en jagbedryf betref. ’n Jagter val binne die kategorie van ’n toeris, want hy reis ver afstande en betaal om een of meer aande oor te slaap. Die verskaffer van die bokke en akkommodasie is ook in die toerismebedryf, want hy voorsien oornaggeriewe en fauna en flora om te
besigtig. Met die verbod op reis en kalenders wat deurmekaar is, asook die feit dat toeriste op hul spaargeld staatmaak wat hulle noodgedwonge gedurende en weens die staat van inperking moes gebruik, sal die eerste drie jaar van sewe maer jare dus sekerlik aanbreek.
We proud South Africans are and will always be able to withstand and successfully recover from difficult conditions (for example the drought) and circumstances (economic and political). The fact that, for the first time in its 26 years of existence, there will be no printed version of GAME & HUNT magazine this month, is hopefully not an 

indication that this is the first of a series of three. Three cheers for our advertisers, readers and subscribers! Enjoy the adventure and experience of clicking, scrolling, reading and watching videos!

Geniet die avontuur!

The last few days had been an adventure of note – from sitting in a blind to hunting in the rain.

With each new season we try to harvest species we haven’t hunted before. When I received a call from Dirk Uys of Wildebeespan Bowhunting, I knew he had something special in mind.
