Elk hunting represent popular tradition in Kainuu area. Hunters train their dogs to prepare them for the annual hunt that take place in October onwards.
The local hunting club Lentiiran Jousi is permitted a specific quota of elk every years – more some years, fewer other years. Metsähallitus (Ministry of forestry) is in charge of hunting and game management in order to preserve a proper balance with the environment. Kainuu region has a good quantity of game in the area.
During the hunt, elks are scouted mainly with help of the local hunting dogs. We will enjoy our thoughtfully prepared bag lunches around an open fireplace trading humorous tales of past hunting experiences and just relaxing in the silence, beauty and fragrance of the wilderness.
