Eagle hunting is a Altai Kazakh tradition dating back about 2000 years (Marco Polo mentions it).Kazakh people use female eagles as they are one-third heavier than the males and far more aggressive. The eagles are trained to hunt hairs, wild cat, ibex, foxes and wolves (eagles have eight times more acute than humans), and release them to the hunter, who clubs the prey to death. To train golden eagle – it is the high art. The caught bird gradually accustom to the owner.
