It's almost time for this year's hunting season to start and there's a lot you need to know, whether you're a hunter or not. There are rules deciding how you can move around in nature during these times and it can therefore be important for everyone to know what applies. And if you are a hunter, it can be good to keep track of where you can hunt and when.
Important dates for hunting
Hunting times vary across the country throughout the year. Generally, it starts earlier in northern parts than in the southern parts. When it comes to moose hunting, it starts in September for the northern parts and October in the southern parts. The moose hunt usually lasts for about two months.

What to think about as a private person
When it is hunting time, it is important to pay attention as a private person when moving in the forests. Mainly to not disturb hunters or hunting dogs, as well as the wild animals. It is best to stay away from places where there is a hunt going on, which is usually signposted. If you are close to a hunt, it is important to have your dog on a leash and to be alert at all times to not disturb the ongoing hunt. You can accidentally disturb both hunting dogs and hunters if you are too close - which can mean danger for you as a private person.
