Planning your trip

Estonia is part of the Eurozone, so citizens of the EU, USA, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia do not need a visa. You’ll want to plan ahead and work with your outfitter to supply the details of any firearms you are bringing so the import permit can be prepared ahead of time.

Upon arrival

Tallinn Airport is serviced by airlines from most major European cities. It is part of the Eurozone, so citizens of the EU, USA, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia do not need a visa. As in most European countries, upon arrival hunters must declare their guns and show a temporary import permit, which the outfitter can arrange. This will include the hunter’s name, passport number, and details of the gun(s), including caliber and serial number. The hunter will also be required to show a valid hunting license from his or her home country, a gun permit or U.S. Customs 4457 form.

Hunting

Estonia has large areas of evergreen forests. Moose are very popular to hunt, and most are hunted from high seats or by calling during the rut and using dogs. Wild boars, hunted via driven shoots and over bait, are very plentiful. European lynx can be hunted with tracking dogs in winter, similar to the way mountain lions are hunted in the western United States, and capercaillie and black grouse are also plentiful. Red deer, roe deer, foxes, European brown bear, and wolves are also found here. Goose hunting is also outstanding.

After the hunt

Trophy export

Upon request, the outfitter should be able to arrange most documents required for trophy export, and in many cases the cleaned and dried horns and skins can be taken home immediately by the hunter.

Ducks Hunt '19

Ducks Hunt '19 Estonia

Estonia is considered a paradise for hunting migratory birds. The reason for this is that Estonia is in a privileged geographical position. The large migrations of woodcock, geese and duck that come from Northern Scandinavia and Russia pass through Estonia, where they find ideal feeding conditions, habitats and climates. Every year, game hunting in Estonia attracts hundreds of hunters who are searching for a high concentration of birds, scenic views and highly professional hunting organizations. Estonia is one of the destinations most important for duck breeding in northern Europe with large areas where you can experience excellent duck hunting. Their hunt takes place from mid-August to late October. In October we also have millions of ducks migrating to southern Europe so that densities are multiplied. Duck hunting with decoys can be combined with the Goose hunting with decoys usually in late September and early October. Hunting season from 20 August until late October The package includes 4 hunting days and 6 nights accomodation
