What makes a good Shooting Holiday in Sweden?
Sweden offers a playground for hunters with its resplendent forests and hills, farmlands and coastline. From the North to South of the country the list of species is vast and the opportunity to shoot within a variety of areas is possible. Species include Driven Duck and Pheasant days, decoying the world-famous Ducks and Geese with the exclusive “No bag limit.” With shotgun and rifle shooting there is something for everyone. The Moose and Roe Deer are a game-changer with organised hunts throughout the forests and even the chance to stalk the elusive Capercaillie and Black Grouse. The courting ritual of the Capercaillie is very charismatic and can be heard in spring throughout the forests of Lapland, Sweden. A truly breath-taking experience.
