Hunting moose is strictly regulated in Finland. In addition to the hunting right on a minimum of a 1000-hectare area, a specific hunting license provided by the Finnish Wildlife Agency is needed.

Most commonly moose hunting is done by groups of hunters. The hunt is organized by a responsible leader who quite often is the person who has applied for the necessary licenses and permits.

For foreign hunters, the most convenient way to hunt moose is to find a Finnish hunter who invites them to participate in moose hunting as a guest. For this purpose, Wildlife Service Finland is selling day permits for moose hunting. However, these permits can only be bought by the hunting group leader who has the hunting right to a certain moose hunting area.
