Get ready because the hunt is almost on

2019-04-17 06:00

WITH temperatures already showing signs of dropping and locals rearranging their closets to move the warmer items to the front, it is clear that the season is almost here.

And we’re not just talking about winter. With colder weather comes the start of hunting season and you know what that means. It’s time to get your guns out!

Enthusiasts have most likely already gotten a head start on their preparations, and there’s no time like the present to get the rest in place. Though hunting season is set to start at the end of May, it’s never too early to get started.

Everything you could possibly need, to get you from start to finish, is readily available in one location.

From firearms, ammo and camo to the spices, marinades and sauces needed to process the meat, the Co-op Mica offers it all.

So, with all the best equipment at your disposal, you can give your full attention to the thrill of the hunt when you and your party head out in search of a trophy.

The Co-op has a wide range of items available to get you on the road, including a Wildebees Camo range ideal for hunting in the Eastern Cape. And they cater for both men and women.

Add in camping gear and basic hiking equipment – if necessary, depending on your hunting grounds – along with your preferred tactical accessories, and you’re set. They even offer the braai equipment you’ll need when you’ve brought that trophy – and the meat, that’s very important – home.

For first-timers and anyone looking for a helping hand and some expert advice in the ammo department, Johann Buys is the go-to guy.

With 15 years in the gun trade and being a sports shooting enthusiast and hunter himself, the ammo specialist won’t steer you wrong when you’re looking for a firearm, ammo, accessories or other self defence and protective equipment.

The fast-growing department has a wide range of pistols, shotguns, rifles, bags, tactical holsters, protective gear and other accessories available.

Not to mention, they now also offer imported ammo and gunpowders, and the cheapest 9mm ammo in South Africa.

So, you’ll get a good product for a good price.

It’s a win-win all the way.

With little more than a month to go before the highly anticipated season opens, it’s time to get down to the Co-op and get your hands on the top-of-the-range tools of the trade.

For more info or advice on your hunting needs, visit the Co-op Mica, located in the Willow Road Shopping Centre on the corner of Circular Drive and Willow Road, or contact the sales team on 041 007 0580.
