To hunt/ to shoot in Saxnäs and surrounding area

The Autumn and the winter are the seasons for the hunter in the forests close to the mountains surrounding Saxnäs.

Regardless if you are scouting for willow grouse or ptarmigan in the mountain terrain or for capercaillie and black grouse in the forest; it´s a great hunting adventure to experience.

The experience of hiking over mountain moors surrounded by the splendor of autumn or skiing through forests wich are heavy with snow are amazing.

The mountain terrain around Saxnäs is characterized by it´s easy accessibility. The grounds are easy to hike and are easily reached by car and a short hike or by skis. You will find the traditional birch-dominated forests close to the mountains and at “allmänningens” woodlands it will mostly consist of spruce forests with elements of bogs and clearings.

You can combine your hunting with accommodation in our cabins or rooms at Kultsjögården in Saxnäs. Shooting license for the “statens” and “allmäninngens” grounds are available for purchase at our shop: Fiskecentrum i Saxnäs.
