Festivals, fairs and traditions
Autumn is the start of the hunting season. The Pallars Jussà region is a rich area in big game hunting with species such as the chamois or the wild boar.
One of the methods most widely used in the Pyrenees is the so called "corralada", in which a lot of hunters take part. It consists of surrounding the wild boar by making noise and slowly closing the circle around it.
The boar tries then to escape through the paths it usually takes, where the most experienced hunters will be waiting.
The prey is normally shared with all participants.
