6 days from €1,795
Moose hunting is perhaps the type of hunt that Sweden is best known for. Every autumn many foreign hunters flock to Sweden to take part in a moose hunt and experience the excitement of this spellbinding hunt in the huge Swedish forests. Many dream of a huge bull moose - but how ever you look at it, it is an incredible hunting experience to line up a moose in your sights, no matter if it is a bull, cow or perhaps “only” a calf.
The hunt takes place the following manner; two of the hunters walk together, each with their own dog handler, while the rest of the hunts wait at a “pass”. A third form of hunting also used, especially during the rut, is “calling -up” and it is fascinating to experience just how close to you it is possible to call-up a moose. The hunters change roles during the hunt between “moose hunting on foot accompanied by dogs” and “sitting over a moose-pass”.
This means that even if one is not in the very best of shape, you can still fully enjoy this hunt. There is absolutely no doubt that a combination of hunting with dogs and lying in wait in strategically chosen locations, will bring you into contact with as many of the district’s moose as possible.
And remember that on this hunt you are not participating in a big Swedish hunting syndicate’s hunt, but in an exclusive hunt arranged for our clients - i.e. a maximum of 6 hunters.
Accommodation during this hunt is in comfortable wilderness cabins. Full board is included, and you will enjoy many delicious local specialities during your stay.
Moose hunting opens on the 1st Monday in September and closes on the 30th November.
