Trapper station at Austfjordneset to be used again

The trapper station at Austfjordneset in inner Wijdefjord will be used again. The hut belongs to the Sysselmannen, who used to give it to applicants who wanted to live as trapper for at least one year. A few years ago, the station was closed. Reasons given were too high costs or legal uncertainties, both of which was not really convincing and the decision to close Austfjordneset accordingly controversial.

Now, a new trapper may move in. He or she should have experience with hunting and trapping, sledge dogs, good health and a CV without dark spots and may then apply to the Sysselmannen until the end of 2013.
