hunting inScotland


Hunting in Scotland was one of the greatest experiences we have ever had! For many days we hunted pheasants, ducks, rabbits, canada goose, snipe and woodcock by walking in the woods and fields nearby Perthshire.

The picture shows some of the hunting labradors we used during the hunts. They were of great help in finding the prey and retrieving.

Here, Arne and André have shot some rabbits and hares. The hares were a little bigger than those found in Norway.

This picture is taken on the second day. Arve is looking at what we shot before lunch that day (!).

And this is the kind of terrain we hunted in. The pheasants are in there somewhere...

Nils is shooting at a pheasant. You can see the smoke from the barrel. Notice the dog already on his way.

André has shot an old canada goose. No wonder the dogs had a small problem retrieving this one.

The next day we hunted in a mountain terrain. This day one of the game keepers also brought with him an old Spaniel. It was an experienced and useful dog.

He actually caught a rabbit on his own - the dog suprised the rabbit in a dense bush...

A nice terrain with both ducks, snipes and even grouse.

The hunting areas were varied and exiting. All day long we walked up the game, with some experienced labs always in front of us. But they were well trained and usually kept the distance no longer than useful with a shotgun.

In Norway we usually hunt grouse, but here they where the exeption.

Scotland had a huge variety of different birds - and a lot of them.
