Small Game Hunting
Small game hunting, or hunting small edible animals, is mostly women’s work. Often accompanied by children, they go out to set snares or traps. Particularly in the fall, they stay in the camp with the children while the caribou hunters go into the forest. When the season no longer allows the hunters to stray very far, for example while the lakes freeze, they all go small game hunting together. Hunters who leave for long periods to hunt caribou also hunt small game until they kill a caribou.
