It is said that hawk hunting, which was handed down as a custom in Manchuria during the Gojoseon Period, has been popular since the Three Kingdoms Period. In particular, during the Goryeo Dynasty, the government had a government office called Eungbang, which was dedicated to the hunting of hawks, and during the Joseon Dynasty, the government expanded it to provide internal responses. During the Japanese Colonial Period, it was banned because it was a unique custom of Joseon, but it was revived after liberation, but it has almost disappeared.
The area of Baegun-myeon, Jinan-gun, has many flying animals and is a plateau area, so when it snows a lot, pheasants that feed on hawks came near the village, so hawk hunting has been prevalent for a long time.
Now, Jeon Yeong-tae, a native of Baegun-myeon, has learned the traditional techniques of hawking and maintains his reputation as a traditional hawker.
