Summary

The social sustainability and fluent co-operation with the interest groups is perhaps the most crucial issue related to the development of hunting tourism at the moment. Due to the wide public huntings rights and intensive hunting club ativities in Northern countries, one of the key elements for the success of the hunting tourism company is a good co-operation with the local population and more widely, understanding on the local hunting culture and rights of the local people related to that.
Also the ecological sustainability is a core value of hunting tourism. The biological resources set the framework for the enterpreneual activities and e.g. cause the seasonal nature to the activities.
