Late autumn, snow in the air. The last of the yellowed leaves are falling from the trees. The dog returns, but is soon off away again. The hunting days are short but beautiful. We walk slowly along a narrow ridge and then stop in a glade. The dog barks! A few hundred metres away, we see a large cock capercaillie in a pine tree.
Hunting for forest birds with “barking bird dogs” is eventful and rarely boring. It is a true dream for those who like to hunt actively. The mountain forests around Myhrbodarna in northern Jämtland offer great opportunities for successful hunting for capercaillie and black grouse, in an undulating landscape of mixed forest and marshes. Barking bird dogs mean that you can hunt all autumn, up until the snow starts to settle.
CAPERCAILLIE AND BLACK GROUSE Valsjöbyn is in northern Jämtland, close to the border with Norway. Not far from there is Myhrbodarna, the family’s shieling for more than a century. Hunting with us provides you with access to 15,000 hectares of hunting grounds in an extraordinary, rich landscape. Our skilled and experienced guides are motivated by making your hunting experience as successful as possible. After the hunt we meet in the lodge, round a crackling fire, for an informal and relaxed time before dinner, which is prepared using the finest local ingredients.
We would love to have you as our guest, on your own or in the company of good friends. The groups are small. Our hospitality is generous. You will increase your knowledge and experience some excitement, as well as having a chance to relax and just enjoy life. We know the conditions here and the beautiful places to see. You probably have an idea of what you are looking for; together, we can plan to details of your stay here with us.
