Dog-assisted Elk Hunting, 4 nights package

Elk hunting represent ancient tradition in Kainuu area. These days hunters train their dogs to help with the hunt, that take place in October onwards. Dog-assisted elk hunting trip in Lentiira provides opportunity to get familiar with local lifestyle and hunt tradition in the arctic lakeland Kainuu region.

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.

Elk meat is highly valued by local households and its availability is rather limited outside the homes of skilled hunters. Also Lentiira Holiday Village´s serves locally hunted game meat.

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.
