Women Flock to Moose Hunt

Published onsdag 30 augusti 2006 kl 10.54

A record number of women are expected to take part in Sweden’s annual moose hunt when it opens next week.

According to the Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management, women now make up a quarter of those passing hunting examinations. Some 300,000 moose roam Sweden’s forests during the summer months, and about a third are killed every autumn during the hunt.

According to a game manager who runs a network for women hunters, in the past women traditionally took care of the hunting dogs and the meat from hunt, and minded the children when the men were out in the forests. But now, she says, society has changed.

More than 14,000 women in Sweden have paid for a hunting licence this year, including a royal princess and a cabinet minister.
