Hunting experience at Vitsaniemi Gård: Different methods of moose hunting are used, each carried out at a different location. You join the local hunting team and hunt in an area of approximately 20 000 hectares of ground. Every autumn, close to 100 animals are felled by some 70 men and women. In order to shoot this much game the Kukkola team uses a method of hunting known as driving. This involves half of the team waiting on stands and the other half walking through the forest in a long line driving the moose towards the shooters. In a successful drive it is possible to shoot as many as 10 animals. Specialised vehicles are used to collect the animals and haul them out of the forest. One to three drives are carried out per day, depending on the success of each drive. The chances of spotting and shooting the animals using this method are very good. For the sake of safety, no guns are carried in the drive but it is not uncommon to see animals trying to break through the driving line. This method of hunting can be arranged from early September throughout autumn depending on the number of remaining moose out of the total quota. Suitable for 1-6 persons. Bird hunting is also available in abundance. Click here for quick link country guide.
