Huntessential Wakkerstroom hosts the Annual Merkel Mcnab for the last 4 years. It is normally scheduled in the months of JUNE/July and it attracts all hunting enthusiasts from all over South Africa!!
The format of the MERKEL MCNAB is designed to celebrate camaraderie and hunting skills in very tough conditions.
Six teams of 3 members each participate in the days hunt, where the goal is to finish 3 disciplines within the allotted 12 hours available. The teams set out at 6am in the morning and must catch a fish, hunt a Blesbuck and shoot a bird before 6pm that evening. All of these disciplines must be completed by the team with each team member responsible of completing one of these disciplines.
The size and weight from the Fish, Bird and Blesbuck ultimately determines the winner!!!
