We know that expert knowledge of the landscape in which we work, and of the game we hunt, are what provide the right conditions for successful hunting.
On top of this, it’s also necessary to have many years of hunting experience and, not least, good moosehounds. After many years’ work as a hunt organiser, we believe we can claim this expertise, but we remain humble in the face of nature.
Hunting using pointing hounds is a highly traditional hunting method. It originated in Great Britain and on the continent in the early to mid-1800s.
Since time immemorial, hunts for ptarmigan have been conducted with pointing hounds in the Swedish mountains. Medstugan, the hunting lodge which is the base of our operations, has been a popular place for game bird hunts for centuries. The shot birds were hung in a specially-built “bird outbuilding”. This outbuilding is still in use and now has protected status.
Carl Fredrik Liljevalch commissioned the building of the Medstugan hunting lodge in 1896-97, based on drawings by architect Agi Lindegren.
Medstugan embodies a genuine sense of hunting traditions. Hunters have stayed here since the turn of the last century; there is a trophy cabinet that bears witness to how hunts used to be held.
