Memories from a successful hunting trip
hunters that never miss the exciting hunting season in Åland are Henrik
Schyffert, to the left in the picture and Erik Haag. After a successful
hunt they wrote this in the local newspaper Ålandstidningen:
"When we arrived at the cottage there was a welcoming fire in the
fireplace, on the table was a plate with home-baked gingerbread and one
night there was a newly smoked fish hanging on the door. Berit and
Jan-Erik, owners of the cottages at Kungsnäs, really know the art of
transforming the greyest November to days with a silver lining. And to
Jörgen P and Helena W, Daniel and Madeleine in Tjudö, Roy and the
hunting team in Överby, the skilled dog drivers and Börje Mattsson and
his daughter for the dinner in the Önningeby museum - you gave us a
super weekend! It's unbelievable what Åland has to offer in November."
