Hajtóvadászat az alsómislyei hegységben / Chase hunt in the Nizna Mysla mountains

MAGYAR Január 6, Kedd. Reggel hét órakkor indulunk az alsómislyei (Nizna Mysla) hegyoldalba. Másféltucatnyi vadász, hét terepjáró és három vadászkutya gyűlt össze. Az eligazítás után elindulunk a hegy északi oldalára. Miso, a fiatal vadász mutatja az utat, én a nyomában loholok, két fényképezővel a vállamon próbálom tartani a lépést. Pár száz méter után megrezzen az egyik bokor, egy hatalmas vaddisznó rejtőzik benne. A kutyák szagot kapnak, erős ugatással jelzik a disznó hollétét. Miso céloz és lő egyet. A vaddisznó azonnyomban eldől, nagy az öröm. Tudni kell, hogy ez a fiatal vadász idei első zsákmánya. Tovább indulunk, több órás gyaloglás során csak egy-két fácán repül ki.

ENGLISH 6th of January, Tuesday. Early morning, 7:00 AM and we are heading towards the Nizna Mysla mountainside. One and a half dozen hunters, seven 4x4 trucks and three hunting dogs come together. The briefing is over, we are now heading to the northern side of the hill. Miso, the young hunter is leading, I am following him with two cameras around my shoulders. After a few hundred meters we are hearing some noises from the nearby bushes. There is a wild boar inside. The dogs sniff out the boar, they are indicating it with loud barks. Miso pulls up the gun to his shoulder, then shoots. The boar is shot dead, the hunter seems happy. We have to know, that this boar is the very first prey that Miso shot this year. We proceed with the hunt, but with little luck. Only a couple pheasants fly up.

MAGYAR Dél tájékában a hegyoldal keleti részére húzódunk át. Itt további két vaddisznót lőnek a vadászok, köztük Misi és egy idősebb vadász. Jönnek a terepjárók, a fiúk felpakolják a portékát. Elindulunk a vadászlak felé, finom kolbász, savanyúság, meleg italok és rotyogó gulyás vár mindenkit. A vadászok elköszönnek, én is összepakolom a felszerelést. 9,45 gigabájtnyi adattal, összefagyott, merev ujakkal és egy félig átázott túracipővel elindulok hazafelé. LOVU ZDAR! 

ENGLISH It's noon, we are now on the eastern side of the mountain. Misi and an older hunter shoot two more wild boars. The guys bring in the 4x4 trucks, the boars are loaded onto them. We are now heading back to the camp, where lots of food, hot drinks and the best Hungarian goulash awaits. The hunters say goodbye, I pack up my gear. I am heading home with some 9,45 gigabytes of data, frozen and stiff fingers and with a pair of very wet walking boots. LOVU ZDAR!
