Hunting in Finland

Finland boosts with the only native Forest Reindeer herds.

Forests reindeer or Caribou is found only on two areas and total populations are relatively small. This is due to different reasons but habitat chances and large carnivores, especially wolf catch probably more than expected. However, there are still a couple of licenses available every year. Average price for a bull license is auctioned for approximately 5000-10000 €. There are also female licenses available and can be purchased for much less. Bulls start to shed antlers in November. Let us know your interest in a Caribou license and we´ll try to get one for you.
