Pourvoirie Club Hosanna : Immersion in the trapping universe
Hooké hunting EP10
We live a traditional trapping adventure in Hosanna, in northern Mauricie, where we meet Max Béland and his father Michel, two trappers who live by the forest’s pace. In their antique snowmobiles, we head off with them and follow them in their trapping lines. A great diversity of prey is present in the region : marten, otters, hares and wolves.
Once the traps installed, the wait begins. We take the time to go ice fishing for trout. With a few dozen lines at different depths, we get some nice fish in no time.
To go further in the forest and access tight paths that can’t be reached by snowmobiles, we head out in dog sleds to make the rounds on our traps. After heavy snowfall and walking through paths, we find something unexpected. We finish the adventure by skinning the prey we caught, a satisfying end to this hunting season.
