Hunting rights are available for purchase for catching small game, cervid, and pest animals on the lands and waters owned by the City of Kuopio, provided that the lands or waters are suitable for hunting in terms of their location and other use.

For hunting small game, the City has two licence areas for which one-week hunting permits are sold. The selling period begins in August. The price of a hunting permit is EUR 30 (incl. VAT).

Hunting licences must also be applied for areas where small predators (raccoon dogs and minks) can be hunted without having to pay the licence fee.

All hunting permits are purchased from the Service Area for Urban Environment customer service point in the City Council building, Suokatu 42, 70110 Kuopio. Service points
