When the leaves start to fall in beginning/middle of October, the birds become a little more careful and move to other places in the forest. We now use a “barking tree dog”, a Finnspitz.

The dog searches far away from the hunters and when the dog locates a bird on the ground it runs towards it. The bird then takes protection in a nearby tree where the dog finds the bird and starts barking; up to 120 times per minute. While the dog barks and assures the birds’ full attention, the hunter can move carefully closer for the perfect shot. Depending on the distance we use both shotgun and rifle with caliber 222 Rem-6,5x55. Normal shooting distance is between 50-100 meters.

If the snow has fallen we will leave the dog at home and take the skis instead.
