Reindeer hunt

The annual reindeer hunting season was opened August 15. The hunting areas are limited and the number of animals taken is controlled. The population between Sassendalen and Grøndalen, where the hunting areas are located, has been on the decrease during the last 5 years and there has been a low number of calves this year.
