ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL

Hunting moose with one dog is a style of hunting that is unique to Scandinavia, as far as i know. The dog is a special breed (elkhund in Swedish), similar in appearance to a husky. Dog carries a GPS tracking device and can be tracked via a hand held unit. The dog will find and track or chase the moose and eventually hold it at bay (with any luck). Accommodations were in a historic resort hotel, first class with excellent cuisine. Trip very suitable for accompanying spouses.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL

As a hunting destination, Sweden is little known to American hunters. It has however, a rich local hunting culture and an abundance of game including moose, red deer, fallow deer, roe deer, mufflon boar,  reindeer,  capercaillie, and lesser species. Wolves cannot be hunted at present, but this may change as their population is rapidly increasing. Terrain ranges from typical central European habitat in the south to northern pine forests to arctic tundra.

Hunting areas range from managed estates to near wilderness areas, and accommodations from manor houses converted to luxury boutique hotels to spike camps. In the far north, hunters will be guided by the indigenous Lapplanders, more properly called Sami people.

Open season for most species ranges from September to January; roe deer (my principal objective) is open from May through August; boar is open practically year round. The principal game for local hunters is the moose (the Scandinavian subspecies, comparable from a trophy point of view to the animals one may find in Maine), and I was told that Swedish hunters take about 400,000 each year.

Local "specialties" include hound driven hunts for boar and moose. These are group affairs and are generally booked by Swedish or other European hunting clubs. Another specialty is for moose with dog, a specialized breed called aelk hund (moose hound`), where the dog will locate the moose and hold it at bay, barking, while the hunter stalks within shooting range. I was told this is an exciting but difficult hunt, since, while the moose will stand its ground against a single dog, it will break and run if the hunter is spotted. Local hunting ethics require that if your stalk is successful, you must shoot the moose regardless of sex or trophy size.

My hunt took place in central Sweden on a privately leased hunting concession (roe deer) and on an estate managed for wildlife (boar). Accommodations were in a country club/hotel and former manor house. A hunting lodge would also have been available. On each hunt I was accompanied by my guide/outfitter, Stefan Bengtsson, as well as by the holder of he hunting lease (roe deer) and a professional gamekeeper (boar). Conditions ranged from sunny with temperatures in the 70s to wind driven rain with temperatures in the low 40s. Before and during the hunt, there were opportunities for sightseeing, and the trip is ideal for an accompanying spouse or family. And by the way. English is widely understood in Sweden.

Stefan has access to numerous hunting areas throughout the country and is able to tailor a hunt in accordance with the clients trophy requirement, physical fitness, game availability, and expectations. As to accommodations I cannot praise him too highly. He exhibits at the SCI convention as well as other similar events.
