Eagle Hunter - Art Wolfe Store
In late afternoon, Kazakh hunters train a golden eagle to respond to commands. For centuries, the Kazakhs, who reside in Western Mongolia, have taken eagle chicks from the nest and hand-trained them to hunt foxes, cats, and, in some cases, wolves. The prey's fur provides the Kazakhs with warm clothing in the harsh, but beautiful, Mongolian winter. As seen in Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge.
