Master Hunter: Portrait of Mati Hõbemägi

Mati Hõbemägi was a head of socialist agricultural holding in Järva county, Estonia. After the collapse of the Soviet regime Mati decided to turn the page in his life. During a decade, Mati together with his supporters have made local forests known across Europe. Every year, hunters take about 200 tons of grain to the forests, make large forage areas and pay close attention to the fact that all activities related to the forests would be in accordance with laws and the code of ethics. Nevertheless, there are still people whose careless behaviour causes irreversible harm to nature.
