Newsletter for 2017 hunting season
I just returned from a successful Capercaillie hunt in northern Finland, on invitation from my friend and colleague Jorma. As I was there in the Arctic Circle, some of the first snow of the winter fell. I realized with a shock that another year is gone and that it is almost time for me and Charl to go to the hunting fairs in Germany and Austria.
The past hunting season was fully packed during the first part of the year, but we had some unfortunate cancellations in the second half due to personal circumstances of some hunters, that will now visit us in 2018. On the political front it is not currently going as well as we hoped and there was some negative media coverage in Europe, which may put some hunters off from visiting our lovely country.
