Young Men Leaving Home and The Women Are Learning to Hunt With Eagles

Living in the Mongolian mountains young girls are taking up the roles their brothers would of filled if they stayed home to carry on the family traditions. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hunt with falcons.

Ashol’s father, Han Gohadok, explained that his eldest son was due to take over the hunting duties but, as he had been drafted to the army, it was unlikely her would return to resume them. Sadly Societies are in flux and what will come from this no one knows.

I so want to paint this girl and her Eagle and own my own hunting Eagle! Amazing story tinged with sadness.
