Hunting licences and firearm import
Hunting Permit and Licences
Wilderness Vuokatti needs a copy of the participant’s hunting permit from the participant’s home country by mail, fax or email two weeks in advance to get the Finnish hunting permit. A copy of a rifle shooting license must also be sent to us one week in advance. Right to hunt big game some other European country is also valid in Finland. A shooting test can also be organized by us at a shooting range nearby the camp as one part of the program. The participant also has to have a license to carry arms and the right kind of firearm for the planned hunting.
The flight company needs to be informed of the firearm when reserving the ticket. When importing firearm, firearm components and ammunition to Finland for hunting purpose, a written invitation from a Finnish hunting club (in this case Camp Puikkokoski Hunting Club) and a permit to carry firearm (the most common is an international firearm pass) shall be presented to Finnish authorities when requested.
