Sukuni metsästysperinne tulee hyvin todennäköisesti katkeamaan minun sukupolveeni. Olin kuitenkin yhden hirvestyskauden ajan mukana metsällä – kameran kanssa.
Hunting is not necessary anymore when it comes to staying alive, yet it still has a huge role in our society. Hunting is not only about getting meat on your plate and controlling moose population: it is also a valuable social event, something that usually unites father and son, and a big part of connecting with nature. There is about 30 000 people who apply for the hunting licence every year in Finland.
The hunting tradition of my family will probably end to my generation. However, I spent one hunting season in the woods with moose hunters - with my camera.
