Hunting in Finland

Geese – Hunting on sea and fields

Finland hosts different species of geese and it is not to forget that the main migration route passes Southern Finland bringing millions of geese during different periods. Despite these facts hunting geese can still be very tricky. Geese exist in large numbers but since they migrate in period’s it´s impossible to say when and what field or what parts of the archipelago they are using at certain dates. Greylag goose migrates in August-September while Canada goose and Barnacle goose migrate in October – November. We do not specifically offer goose hunting but it is included in all of our waterfowl packages and it can also be added as an additional program on all of our hunts, if a good opportunity occurs during your visit.
