Dukha hunters pause to look for signs of game in the mountains. The reindeer are critical to the survival of the Dukha, as the people ride the reindeer into the forests to hunt.
Chinese animal-parts traders are increasingly hunting here. The traders kill brown bears for their gall bladders and paws and musk deer for their musk glands, contributing to the decline of local game populations. Dukha hunters now have to travel farther and longer to find food in the forests.
