A unique destination in Europe for Goose Hunting

Estonia is the paradise of Goose Hunting

Goose Hunting

Goose Hunting starts in September until late November but the highest concentrations are in late September and the first half of October when we organize the goose hunt.
The hunt starts in the morning before sunrise and can last all day and is done by attracting geese to fields through the use of goose-calls and decoys. Depending on the quantity of geese and their timidness hunting can also be done in the afternoon at the lakes where they go to rest.
