The great Olaf talking about the moose on the ground.

First he gave us a brief talk in the hotel restaurant. He explained to us that elk they are similar in weight to the Spanish bulls, reaching up to 600 kilos. However, they are much higher and you have to measure them 2 meters at its highest point.

They feed mainly on developing pines of the forests in the area, preventing their growth and becoming a considerable headache for the Swedish tycoons of the timber industry.

Although they are not considered as a pest, they are issued a limited number of licenses for that the hunters They beat them every year. According to our dear Olaf, in a way it is something necessary. He is a scholar of these animals and rents his hunting patent to the numerous tourists - mainly Germans - who throw themselves all the year waiting for the end of the closed period.
