Brevens Bruk AB’s land is extremely wild. The game that is both dominant and most visible to the area is the fallow deer. The fallow deer population is very strong and also keeps a lot of very beautiful capital deer. On the fields there are also a lot of wild boar, normal moose strains, an increasing red deer population and a lot of hares and capercaillies. The deer have been pushed back by the many deer, but have recovered somewhat in recent years. The hunt is mainly leased to hunting teams, but Brevens Bruk AB also has its own representation land where representative hunting and sales hunts are conducted. The company sells a limited number of larger hunts as well as stealth and guard hunts for fallow deer and wild boar.

Brevens Bruk AB offers fine fishing waters in Lake Sottern. The lake is 2,800 hectares and contains a 700 hectare Natura 2000 area called “Sottern’s archipelago”. The reserve was inaugurated in 1997 and was created primarily to protect ospreys and large loons that are well represented in the lake.
During the period 15 May to 15 July, access to the reserve is prohibited.

In Sottern there are plenty of e.g. pikeperch, perch, pike, lake, eel and roach.

 Boat docks in Sottern 

Brevens Bruk AB can offer boat docks in Sottern at Gillberga, Kilsmo and Knipphammaren.

The places consist of boat barriers at piers. There are plenty of parking spaces. Trash cans are available at the car parks so you do not have to take rubbish from the boat trip home. At each dock area there is a boom to which you must have a key to be able to put in your boat.

Since many prefer not to have their boat lying by the pier but instead put in and pick up the boat at each turn, it is now possible to only rent a boom key to one of the dock areas.

A place for your boat costs SEK 800 and a key for the boom costs SEK 500.
