In order to have a healthier moose population and at the same time increase hunting interest, Statskog is selling a record number of day passes for moose hunting.
Statskog is open to selling a record number of affordable day passes for moose hunting throughout the country until December 23. The goal is to prevent starvation and grazing damage, among other issues.
“This is the first time we’re opening up to selling affordable day passes for moose hunting in Statskog areas across the country. We will have the same price everywhere, no matter how attractive the hunting areas are,” head of hunting and fishing in Statskog, Jo Inge Breisjøberget, told the newspaper Nationen.
In most places, the hunting season ends at the end of October. In places where there are moose left within the quota after the team hunts end, Statskog will offer day passes.
Every year, around 30,000 moose are hunted in Norway during the hunting season – compared to about 40,000 ten years ago. In Norway today, there are around 59,000 moose hunters.
