Guided elk hunt with gun dog – a unique hunting adventure

Perhaps you will take the trophy?

Your heart is beating. You approach the elk and hear the dog about 100 metres away. You steal silently through the forest and hope the wind is on your side. As your breath makes contact with the light, a golden glimmer appears through frozen branches. You don’t know what to expect, and the excitement is indescribable as you get closer and closer. Suddenly you’re standing there – you, the dog and the king of the forest. You catch a glimpse of the splendid antlers between the branches, just 10 metres away. A few magical seconds feel like an eternity as you pull the trigger. This is the moment that counts. This is the moment you will write your own, unique hunting history.

Elk hunting with gun dogs

Elk hunting with gun dogs is a form of hunting that offers maximum excitement and many memorable anecdotes. It is one of the most difficult and most ultimate forms of hunting in which you can participate in Norway. You use the elk’s defensive instinct; the elk positions itself for the dog. If the elk starts moving, the dog will keep up with it at walking speed. If the elk runs, the dog remains motionless.

Large hunting grounds

Meraker Brug offers a large elk population and impressive hunting grounds. In autumn 2017, the equivalent of one elk was felled every other day by our hunters. You can enjoy beautiful, varied nature, and 1,200 km² of hunting grounds offer endless opportunities. Everything from dense young forest, primeval forest and open marshland to pine forests surrounded by mountains. Excellent grazing grounds and hiding places offer good access to elk.
