This picture is from an beaver hunt in Tufsingdalen/Hedmark/Norway.

Beaver is one of the very few species that are allowed to hunt during spring. That's because there are only beaver males that are active during the hunting season.

Arve is studying the work of a beaver. Some clear evidence of beaver activity in this area!

A way of hunting beaver is to float downstream with a boat on the river.

Arve has shot a moose in Østerdalen. We hunted moose for some years, but not any longer. It just became to much for us during a hectic season - it isn't time enought to do all...

Hunting in Kongsvinger

We shot 3 blackcocks that day - 06:30 in the morning.

Hunting at Thobjørns place in Kongsvinger



Joachim and his old vorsteher, Dixie. She hunted with us for some days this year and found several blackcocks.

Joachim & Dixie



This place is great place for blackcock. The blackcocks are shy and extreamly difficult to hunt - I guess that's partly why we do it...

Hunting cormorant and eider duck at Arnes place.

The incredibly shy cormorants were hard to get close enough, but we succeeded a couple of times.

In Norway we have good traditions of eating almost everything we shoot - from reindeer, moose and roe-deer to birds.

The cormorants and the eider ducks are both very tasty if you cut off all the fat.

Grouse hunting on Sørøya



Sørøya is an island far north in Norway - 70° N - and the nature is wild and beautiful - next stop is the North Pole...
