We are pleased to be able to offer Moose hunting in the Eastern part of Norway. This prestigious estate has its origin dating back to the 16th century. The current operation on the estate is forestry, hunting and Deer farming. The estate owns about 40,000 acres of land with several cabins and fishing waters.

Hunting traditions are strong and have been for many generations. Today we hunt Moose & Reindeer here, but it is also possible to hunt Capercaillie, Red & Roe Deer, Bear, Wolf, Wolverine and Lynx in some parts of the season.

Moose Hunting Season

Norway Date From Date To
Moose Cow Season 25th September 23rd December

 

The hunting area is divided in to two different areas – upper area and lower area.

The upper area is a mix of old forest, marshlands, scattered hardwood forest and mountain. This area is suitable for Moose and Reindeer hunting. There are no roads and the landscape is beautiful which will make you feel like you are the only person in mountains.

The lower area is mostly covered with spruce forest with occasionally clear-cut areas. The roads in this area makes the terrain easy accessible and stands can be rearranged quickly. Best suited for Moose hunting

Hunting

Moose hunting season starts 25th September and ends 23rd December. The best season for hunting Moose is September and October. This is when the terrain is still dry and the weather is not so cold. November and December can also be good hunting months, though the snow and cold conditions can make the hunt more difficult. But if you are up for a new experience hunting on snow can be really exciting. The annual quota of 25-30 Moose annually is set during the spring.

Different techniques of hunting are used depending on the terrain of the hunting area. In the open and less forested upper area we can use spotters to locate game and then sneak into position.

The upper area is also suitable for hunting with a leashed dog, where the dog silently tracks down the game and creates shooting opportunities.

The lower area is more densely forested and we prefer to use unleashed dogs to search for animals and, unlike the leashed dogs, bark at the game to try to pin it down and signal to the hunters. This form of hunting will get you close to the game and you will really feel up close and personal to the action.
