Seal Pups, a springtime delicacy prized for their soft fur and tender meat. When pups start coming out on the ice, even small children can hunt. Packed up to travel, the families move slowly over the wet ice, through lakes of fresh melting, hunting on the way. Finding the breathing holes is a joyful game for everyone.
