World-Class Wildfowling

Sweden is a Nordic country in Northern Europe, sharing land borders with Norway, Finland and Denmark; it’s the third-largest country in the European Union and the fifth largest in Europe; it also has one of the lowest population density. Much of its beautiful landscape is untouched, and the Swedish countryside is dotted with thousands of lakes, freshwater streams, mountains, rolling hills, and over 65% of the land is carpeted with forest. The landscape is varied and dramatic and offers a whole host of exciting opportunities for the travelling hunter; the country is often referred to as the ‘Hunters Playground’.

From the North to South of the country, the list of species is vast, and there’s enormous opportunity to shoot a wide variety of areas and terrain. Driven Pheasant days, decoying the world-famous Ducks and Geese, with ‘no bag limit’ and stalking the elusive Capercaillie and Black Grouse are all possible, and that’s just the birds. Organised forest hunts for the Moose have been game-changing over the last few years, in-fact the European Moose live in just about every corner of the country, and most estimates put the total population at some 300,000. Other species to hunt include Roe Deer, Red Deer, Fallow Deer, Reindeer, and Wild boars, to name a few.

It’s this variation, with the choice of either shotgun or rifle shooting, the chance of big numbers, and trophy specimens that have attracted keen hunters from all around the world, Sweden truly offers something for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's The Shooting Like?

The majority of the Goose hunting in Sweden commences in the early morning, over harvested fields and planted winter crops. The use of decoys plays a role in the hunt, as these attract the passing birds. Usually, the guns are either hidden in a lay-blind or specially made hides in the hedges.

Field shooting or rough shooting is excellent for a mixture of species. You can encounter Partridges, Pheasants, Ducks and Hares; this is productive over small drives, with a combination of pointing dogs and spaniels and is a fantastic experience for the passionate bird hunter.

The hunting of bigger game, such as Moose and Deer, is conducted using traditional Swedish methods. Moose, in particular, are targeted with a ‘Moose Drive’, performed with dogs to push the Moose out to standing hunters; this incorporates plenty of camaraderie and teamwork and is another popular reason why so many travelling hunters flock to Sweden.

High Volume Geese Shooting

It’s no secret that Sweden is one the best shooting destinations globally for Geese and wildfowl. The birds have no bag limit, and each year in Sweden, hunting days of over 200 birds aren’t uncommon. While there are no guarantees in wild Goose hunting, expectations for 20-40 Geese per hunter daily are reasonable.

The Geese migrate from the arctic to the commercial winter crops that span Swedens rolling terrain, as the endless high-calorie food sources such as disced sugar beets, corn, carrots, winter wheat and canola, provide perfect conditions for fattening. The vast expanses of untouched wilderness also provide some ideal roosting conditions.

What Geese Species Can You Expect In Sweden?

Sweden is one of the few places in Europe where you can hunt the Barnacle Geese; these species aren’t resident but migrants from Canada.

Other more traditional Geese species include the Greylag Goose and Great White Fronts, which offer the hunter the chance of a fantastic mixed bag.

The Season

The hunting seasons in Sweden runs over the autumn and winter months, from August to February; however, dates of the season and duration for a particular species can vary considerably between one part of Sweden and another.

For the Geese species early season, between August and October, will see you in with a chance of Greylag, Canadian and Barnacle Geese. Late season, from October to December, you can expect Canada Geese and Mallards.

Other Activities

Another reason why shooting holidays in Sweden are so popular is the vast range of other activities on offer for a non-shooting companion. Many famous Swedish cities, towns and villages, set in the stunning scenery and steeped in history, are often only a stone’s throw away from the shooting estates. They’re perfect for exploring and sightseeing, and you’ll find many quaint restaurants, boutiques and even spa’s. There’s hiking trails, nature reserves, kite surfing, golf, and even deep-sea fishing for the more active individuals.

How To Get There

As with all the shooting destinations in Europe, one of the great things about them is the ease of travel. You can fly from the UK direct to a considerable number of Swedish airports, including Stockholm and Copenhagen; here, you’ll meet with one of the lodge’s representatives who’ll transfer you to your local accommodation.
