A woman makes sure that her child, the eagle hunter’s grandson is secure. Hunting with eagles is currently only practiced by a handful of Kyrgyz and Kazakhs in one of the planet’s most desolate and harsh terrains, the Altai Mountains. This form of falconry, the practice of hunting with the aid of birds of prey, can be traced back as far as 4,000 years in Central Asia.
