The hunt for Capercaillie and Wood Grouse develops in late October. Hunting in spring is forbidden during the mating season.
Capercaillie hunting is developed through stalking and the use of dogs to help locate specimens usually up high in trees.
Hunting Capercaillie is developed through decoy at dawn and during the day by stalking.
In Finland the density of Capercaillie (Wood Grouse) and Black Grouse is high since they practically have no predators. They inhabit coniferous forests of central and northern Finland and year after year its population increases thanks to the care by hunting clubs and the Finnish government.
