PHASA & WRSA Member
Hanno van Rensburg is the winner of the 2013 PHASA "Uncle Stevie Award" with a Record Trophy Roan. The “Uncle Stevie Award” is presented for the most outstanding trophy animal taken by a client whilst hunting in South Africa with a full member of PHASA. Entries must be in respect of animals taken in the current year, under fair-chase conditions, in South Africa only.
PHASA (Professional Hunters Association of South Africa) was formed in 1978 by a group of pioneering men, men who became icons in the fields of both hunting and conservation: “Uncle Stevie” Smith, Basie Maartens, Coenraad Vermaak, Norman Deane, Nico van Rooyen, Bill Daly, Gary Kelly and Bertie Guillaume, to name but only a few. Today PHASA is the largest association of its kind in the world with more than 1 100 members.
Hanno also won the regional WRSA (Wildlife Ranching South Africa) Koedoesrand "Young Game Rancher" Trophy 2013. Wildlife Ranching South Africa (WRSA) was established in 2005, from the necessity of government's desire to deal directly with a national body and no longer with provincial bodies representing the South African game or wildlife rancher. Wildlife Ranching SA proudly gave recognition to Hanno van Rensburg as winner of the Green Economy 2013 Award. Hanno applied engineering and green economy principles in the development of facilities for breeding, eco tourism and hunting.
