Two men with their hunting eagles
Hunting with golden eagles has to be one of the most fascinating and primal connections between man and animal.
In one of the planet’s most desolate and harsh terrains (the Altai Mountains which run from Siberia in Russia down to Mongolia’s Gobi Desert) hunting with eagles is currently only practiced by a handful of Kyrgyz and Kazakhs.
