More info

Even prehistoric man of the Old Stone Age (Paleolithic age) went hunting regularly. Hunting provided them with a food source and supplied them with valuable animal by-products such as fur, bones and sinews.

Advanced ancient civilisations revered divini-ties related to hunting, for example the Greek goddess Artemis or the Roman goddess Diana. In the Catholic Church, Saint Hubertus is regarded as the patron saint of hunting.

Nowadays hunters take on other responsibilities. The main aim of hunting is to care for diverse species. This includes feeding game during winter, when foraging is much more diffcult. But also population control of wildlife is of utmost importance to avoid damage to forestry and agriculture.

The moose (North America) or elk (Eurasia), Alces alces, is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a dendritic ("twig-like") configuration. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Moose used to have a much wider range but hunting and other human activities have greatly reduced it. Moose have been reintroduced to some of their former habitats. Currently, most moose are found in Canada, Alaska, Scandinavia, Latvia, Estonia, New England and Russia. Their diet consists of both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. The most common moose predators are wolves, bears and humans. Unlike most other deer species, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive and move quickly if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn can lead to spectacular fights between males competing for a female.
