Here is Erä-Eero’s take on the most popular visitors at the watching stand
—The wolverine is a curious and likeable creature. It moves about all through the year and can be seen day and night. The wolverine is initially shy, but once it starts to trust a spot, it will keep coming back carefully. The wolverine isn’t afraid of quiet noises, but talking will drive it away. Autumn is the best time as the cubs begin to gain independence and come play fight with other cubs.
—Bears start arriving when there is plenty of food available. Bears move about mostly during the berry harvest season of the later summer and autumn. Bears on snow are very interesting for photographers, because they are rare. The bear is quite the trickster: it will claw, dig, mess about, and get up to all kinds of shenanigans. This is the middle of a hunting ground, so bears are constantly alert when they come here.
—The wolf is a popular and photogenic animal. But also terribly shy. It will circle around at a distance of 20 to 30 metres. It won’t come directly to the carcass, but will rather let the wolverine pile up the food first. Once the wolverine leaves to feed its cubs, the wolf will attack. The wolverine will drop the food and run away or climb up a tree.
