White Tail Deer Stalking In Finland
Deer hunting is a very common form of entertainment in Finland and more than 4500 associations are involved in this business. There are many areas in the country where deer hunting is allowed in groups with a particular price that is charged for each hunter per day. The hunters are gathered at the resort before the day of the hunt and prepared on how to hunt and what sort of animals they are allowed to hunt. The hunters require Finnish hunting licenses and local hunting permits before they can hunt deer. Usually hunting of Finnish deer is allowed during the months of October, November and December. The hunting industry provides a good source of revenue to the Finnish government as it is able to create a lot of foreign exchange as many tourists around the world gather in Finland for the hunting season.
Finnish Deer Legends
Deer are considered the national pride of Finland. If you visit the Northern areas of Finland, you will get to hear many legends about this animal. The most popular legend is about a white deer known as Vaadine. The legend revolves around a girl transforming into a fuming deer by an ugly troll. Many hunters tried to kill the deer for its white skin but were unsuccessful until one day when one of the hunters was victorious in wounding the deer fatally. The deer after the fatal wounds transformed back into the girl because of the blood loss and was married to the hunter for a happily ever after.
Local legends also talk about Deer Monsters that are ferocious and intelligent creatures. According to legend, these strange animals are very difficult to kill and are even worse than poachers. Locals believe the left horn of these deer is sacred and much more powerful than modern medicine in curing illness and in prolonging life and youthfulness. While the right horn when burned can drive away evil spirits and animals like snakes.
