For a long time, hunting was almost a vital necessity for Finnish families. Still today hunters get annually more than 10 million kilos of pure game meat from their hunt. Game meat is naturally low in fat thanks to animals active lifestyle.
Despite this game meat is aromatic and filled with flavour. If you do not hunt yourself or want to hunt, you can buy game meat from many online retailers or shops. Hunting clubs can also sell game meat.
Finnish Hunters´ Association highlights the effects of hunting on wellbeing and to the valuable work done by hunters to maintain the biodiversity of Finnish nature.
In Finland, hunting is carried out on the principle of sustainable use. Hunting is regulated by hunting legislation that takes into account the size and development of game populations.
Wild game never experiences a moment in captivity, it’s never coerced and it lives a truly wild life. The most important types of game in Finland are grouse, moose, mountain hare and white-tailed deer, as well as the mallard and wood pigeon.
