Hunting Deer With A Rifle? Psh… Try Deer Hunting With An Eagle

I see your rifle hunt, I see your bow hunt, and I raise you…

Hunting deer with an eagle.

I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve never seen anything like this before. We all know about running dogs while hunting feral hogs (or bears for the folks that do that), but never in my life have I seen an eagle, one of the world’s most pristine birds, be used for deer hunting.

A video has gone viral of a hunter releasing an eagle, as the deer sprints off in the other direction.

Sure enough, the eagle tracks down the deer, taking down its prey, and that’s ballgame.

This type of hunting is practiced in parts of Europe, particularly in Hungary, as well as Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Mongolia.

A few videos have surfaced over the years of this practice, but have been few and far between.

It’s WILD…
