Hunter’s trophies from the forest around the village of Minzong, Arunachal Pradesh


Every male in Arunachal Pradesh, at least in the rural areas, is a hunter, and every self respecting hunter has a trophy rack. This was a trophie rack in a hut in the village of Minzong or Sumdul in the Lohit Valley in a remote corner of Arunachal Pradesh. Amoung the deer skulls is the skull of a bear (bottom left). In another hut, they had the skin of a Himalayan black bear spread out before the fire. The locals are passionate about hunting and wild meat froms an integral part of their diet.
