Kazakh Eagle HuntersBayan-Ulgii, Mongolia
Hunting with eagles is an ancient sport. It reminds us of how close, until recent history, a man was with both nature and animals. This tradition, lost in many parts of the world, is enjoying a resurgence of interest among the Kazakhs and has spread to other ethnic groups who once hunted with raptors but lost the knowledge. You'll follow Kazakh hunters with trained golden eagles, the largest and most powerful of raptors, as they hunt fox and rabbit from horseback. Meet the hunters, their families and their birds, follow them on the hunt and learn some of the skills involved in the capture, training, and use of the eagles as hunters.
