Competitors from thirteen countries descended upon Krasniy Bor, Belarus on Sunday for the European Deer Calling Championships.
Participants compete in imitating a variety of deer moods, including a mating call or a cry of victory after a fight with another stag.
It is forbidden to use electronic calls during the competition, though any other items are welcomed.
«The event is called European... Еще Championship but it has a global reach because nowhere else such event is held apart from Europe,» said Aleksander Kazarez, a member of a Belarussian deer luring team.
The Belarusian Society of Hunters organised the event as part of a hunting festival where contestants compete in speed endurance and aiming accuracy.
