Hunting in Sweden is very popular. Sweden is home to almost 300.000 hunters of whom around 200.000 have signed up to the Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management. This is a voluntary body that is set up to help hunters in Sweden and their interests. A lot of the hunters in Sweden are also landowners and even over 50% of the lease shooting rights belong to co-operative associations.
It is possible for foreign hunters to bring their firearms to Sweden and use them for during their Swedish hunts by asking permission.
Hunting in Sweden is different from hunting in other European countries. The country is full of wilderness and the forests are dense
