A group of village hunters (would be called poachers anywhere else in India!) enter the thick rain-forest around their village for a shikar session, in north-east India's Nagaland state. They use old bharua or muzzle loading rifles and age-old tactics, to corner their game - everything from a tiny warbler to a more substantial pheasant.

The villagers have shot a Drongo bird - who ever even thought that a Drongo was edible?
