Don’t miss — There’s a REALLY fine line between hunter and hunted.
If you’re from TEXAS, you’re probably familiar with the culling of feral pigs.
In the North, the problem isn’t pigs, but wolves.
Here’s part of the write-up that came with the video (hat tip Outdoor Hub)
For some background on this video, it was reportedly taken in Kazakhstan, where wolf hunting is still very popular—and arguably less controversial than it is in North America. Traditionally, hunters employ specially-trained golden eagles to hunt wolves, but the art of training those majestic birds is dying out. Many modern Kazakh hunters now use snowmobiles to pursue wolves, which is still a grueling—and as you can see below—dangerous method of wolf hunting.
In this video, hunters demonstrate their steady shots shooting wolves while zooming through the snow. It’s definitely a contrarian method of hunting, but with so much ground to cover and snow up to your armpits, it’s tough to imagine making this trek on foot.
Now, let’s get to the meat and potatoes of this video. Right around the 1:30 mark, things take a scary turn. You’ll have to watch and see for yourself, but let’s just say look out for the teeth:
Now THAT’s helluva a story he’ll bring back to his grandchildren.
(So long as he doesn’t meet another, quicker, wolf before he can have any.)
