Researches on wild reindeer catching constructions in the Norwegian Lapp area / Ørnulv Vorren.

Title: Researches on wild reindeer catching constructions in the Norwegian Lapp area / Ørnulv Vorren.
Author(s): Vorren, Ørnulv.
Date: 1965.
Publisher: Luleå: Norrbottens Museum
In: Hunting and fishing. Nordic symposium on life in a traditional hunting and fishing milieu in prehistoric times and up to the present day. (1965.),
Abstract: Constructions include pitfalls (see p.319), decoys, converging fences, snares and self-shooters. Fences are mentioned from 1630. Decoys were reindeer cows on long rein to white-clad stalker. Fences were placed to exploit terrain and bottlenecks on migration trails. Pits were deep, set in row. Some deer were driven into water and killed swimming. Maps show fence complexes in Varanger area and pitfalls in Norway. Some pits were for elk, but some large pits were simply weathered reindeer pits.
