Moose hunting is perhaps the form of hunting Sweden is most famous for, and every autumn many foreign hunters flock to Sweden to join a moose hunt and experience its excitement in the enchanting northern forests. Most of them however will take part in a driven hunt together with many local hunters. On such a hunt the likelihood of actually shooting a moose is not very high.
Many hunters dream of getting the chance of shooting a big bull moose - and no matter what, it is an unforgettable experience to have any moose in the sights of your rifle, whether it is a bull, cow or even “just” a calf.
This tour is ideal for anyone who wants to experience a “real hunt”. You will hunt in the transitional manner, just as it has been done for genertions. It is a unique experience, in a beautiful landscape that will linger long in your memory. The hunting takes place on 4,500 hectares of uninterrupted terrain, west of the town of Gällivare in northern Lapland. The hunting district also borders a number of nature reserves and partially lies in Laponia, a Swedish World Heritage Site.
Once in a while, once you have shot your moose, it is necessary to call on a little extra help to move it. Today, this help comes in the form of a six wheeled ATV, which can deal with any type of terrain. In addition to hunting moose, you should have plenty of opportunities for rough shooting and fishing during your week hunting in Lapland. The hunting team will include both dog handlers and experienced hunting dogs, who can be relied upon to do a great job.
