The Grand tradition of the Kazakh people annually hold an exceptional feast called the Eagle Hunting Festival. This happens in the extreme air of the majestic Altai Mountains, among the river glaciers and beautiful landscape in Bayan-Ulgii province. Eagle hunting was mainly practiced only in the western regions of Mongolia. Each bird was intended to hunt a particular type of animals. Apart from foxes, golden eagles usually catch corsacs and hares. Strong, rapacious, well-trained eagles proved good for hunting hoofed animals and even wolves. Hawks are used for geese and bustards. Sparrow-hawks are as a rule used for hunting hares while goshawks are used for quails. Falcons and merlins proved to be excellent for hunting smaller birds. In the past, hunting birds were extremely expensive: a good golden eagle could cost 5-6 camels and a falcon cost 1-2 camels. Eagle hunting season starts with first night frosts and continues from November through February.
