Capercaillie

Capercaillie

If the moose is the king among mammals, the capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) is definitely its equivalent among birds. Capercaillie can be found in large numbers in the pine forests of Swedish Lapland, all the way to the tree line in the mountains. Hunting for the stately capercaillie cock is permitted from 25 August to 31 January but the female may only be hunted until 15 November. Capercaillie are often hunted using dogs before the snow arrives. During the winter, hunting is done skiing using mainly rifles.

To register a trophy capercaillie here, it must weigh at least 10 lb (4.5 kg).
