The hunt

Titti Bergman talks of her interest in hunting

The beginning of September is a hectic time for the reindeer herder. The herd is to be rounded up and driven to the enclosure to select the animals to be slaughtered for household needs. With modern vehicles, the reindeer are rounded up quicker than when reindeer and humans went everywhere on foot. Before the big bull reindeer are selected for slaughter, the reindeer owners take the opportunity to mark the calves that could not be marked in the summertime. In winter the reindeer ears cannot heal owing to the cold.
