Congratulations on a great hunt, great pictures, and a fiance with real spirit. Those wolverine bags do look very cool. They also look like you could wake up to a reindeer stepping on you.

Thanks Cazador.

Actually, once we were both in our wolverine bags, one of the guides who was spotting only about 500 yds away couldn't find us any more (and his eyes are sharp!). They are also used as mini (and very mobile) hides for hunts.

Magnificient report, Orvar!
I'm glad you were successful. And THREE bulls! Wow! Smiler
Thanks for sharing lovely pictures and good luck on the rest of the Scandinavian Safari!

Ps. Almost every hunter I know uses the "Wolverine" bags. They're really amazing. Will keep you warm in all kinds of weather.

Congratulations! Great story, great pictures and great bulls tu2

I have the "wolverine bag" in the insulatet Thermo Hunter version in woodland camouflage. Great stuff for stand hunting when it is freezing cold.
It´s a bit noisy, but I can live with that.

Well done - what a thrill! And a busy few minutes of shooting at the end.

Was it a public area where all Norwegians can hunt? Sounds like it was quite competitive at times.

Boghossian: I will leave it to one of our Norwegian friends to explain how this works, as even after asking a number of questions, still not 100% and don't want to give you wrong into...

Thank you for that wonderful report and photos Orvar. I have one question though - after all the hard walking and the big packs you carry how on earth did you get the dead animals out of there?

Fantastic hunt, and a beautiful place, but my god, it is bleak there. Reindeer must be a resilitant beast to thrive there.

Makes the west of Ireland look like a tropical paradise.

I think that hunt is for someone made of sterner stuff than me.


Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they are not out to get you....

You have to butcher them on the hill and pack them out! Eeker

Great pics and report,
The landscape is similar where Trapper Dave and I are going next month for Reindeer with some other hunters. We got tags for two bulls and two cows.
I will send you some recipes, got a lot of them, from hamburgers to great steaks.
