This book provides easy-to-follow directions for completing a successful aglu hunt. An aglu is a seal breathing hole found on the sea ice, and aglu hunting is a time-honoured traditional hunting method used by Inuit for generations. Experienced hunter Willam Flaherty guides novice hunters through the basic principles of this ancient style of hunting, including:
?How to pack a qamutiq
?How to dress for long hours on the ice
?How to identify and assess agluiit
?How to endure long waits by the aglu
?How to correctly shoot and butcher a seal
While hunting skills can only truly be perfected through numerous trips out onto the ice, Algu Hunting will give young hunters the basic information they need to prepare for their first hunting experience. This book will also provide young readers who are less familar with Inuit hunting traditions with a window into the traditional hunting practices that have sustained Inuit for generations.
