Here is an old Canadian goose egg I found. As you can see the egg is broken and has been there very long.
In the summer about 8 Canadian gooses comes to breed here they stays usually until the hunting season starts and leaves when someone starts shooting them. Usually when they leave they its about 20-30 goose. They are the biggest goose in Norway.
Here the beaver has built dam with birch trees. Beaver eat much birch and some people are very angry beavers because they eats all their garden trees.
The under fur on beaver is very soft. But its a lot of work to remove all the stiff hairs.
Ive heard that beaver meat is very tasty but it seems that some people who hunts beaver are afraid to taste beaver and they just throw the beaver in the trash! Probebly because they are so lazy that they dont bother to cook it!

Kit you need:A good binocular,warm and silent clothes,rifle or shotgun,plenty with ammunition and a good bait.
Bait:Its not all baits who workes good at even fox which almost eats everything. This time I have used some frozen gwyniad which I then crushed into very small pieces. Pig is a very good baits the best would I say also schrimp shells are very good. My experience with sheep(adult) bait is that the fox comes and taste at the bait one time after that he usually doesnt return at the same sheep bait but. If you use sheep I would recomand to use lam. It seems that the fox likes lam better and often return to eat several times at the bait probably because the milder taste. Fish as I used this time is also a good bait. Ive also heard about another way to make a bait which they says is a good bait.
First dig a hole in the ground one meter deep and one meter wide, then you take some dryed gras and put it in the bottom, then take some seeds or bread crums and put it in the hole, then more gras on top again. Usually after a while a mice colony will move in there and start breeding. Then you have the perfect fox bait.
Scab seems to be a problem this year all foxes ive seen had it. So its important to shot all foxes I see with scab so it wont be a problem next year also.

I saw that the hare rolled a round when I shot so I was sure that I hit the hare. But I couldnt see if he ran further or was laying on the ground now because it was really much bushes. I went looking for the hare but I only found some hairs on the ground so I was sure that he wasnt dead.
I searched after the hare in about 15-20 minuts then I finally found what I was searching for laying on the ground completly silent a meter in front of me! I finished the job then I skinned the hare and carryed the food home.
This time I used bismuth 12 gauge hail number.3 they worked very good as usual hadnt it been for that I hit the hare to low and it didnt die at once.
