More info

Even prehistoric man of the Old Stone Age (Paleolithic age) went hunting regularly. Hunting provided them with a food source and supplied them with valuable animal by-products such as fur, bones and sinews.

Advanced ancient civilisations revered divini-ties related to hunting, for example the Greek goddess Artemis or the Roman goddess Diana. In the Catholic Church, Saint Hubertus is regarded as the patron saint of hunting.

Nowadays hunters take on other responsibilities. The main aim of hunting is to care for diverse species. This includes feeding game during winter, when foraging is much more diffcult. But also population control of wildlife is of utmost importance to avoid damage to forestry and agriculture.

The Capercaillie, with its wingspan of up to 1.4 meters and a weight of up to 6 kilograms, is the largest grouse species in Europe.
