sea birds hunting


Seabird (Puffin & Guillemot) Hunting is a very popular sport in Iceland. Hunting from a boat, 100 birds per day per hunter is not uncommon. Iceland is the only country in the world where you can hunt Puffins. During the hunt you will usually be able to shoot all five types of Guillemot (Alcidae) birds: Guillemot, Black Guillemot, Brunnich’s Guillemot, Razorbill and Puffin.

Shooting at sea has been a traditional way of gathering food in Iceland. However, interest in this branch of shooting has been growing especially amongst those clients who have an interest in taxidermy and collecting bird trophies. These sea birds are also quite delicious to dine, witch makes sea bird shooting really worthwhile.
