Hunting in Finland

Wild boars are increasing and they are found locally all over southern and eastern Finland.

The densest population is in eastern Finland, bordering Russia. This is also where wild boars initially arrived to Finland. We do not particularly arrange wild boar hunts but it can be added as extra days in eastern parts of Finland or to be shot when encountered in Southwest Finland.
