Several dozen hunters take part in the last session of driven hunts (Drückjagd) of the season in the Uchermark region, north of Berlin.

Early in the morning shooters are assigned to posts across the hunting ground. Then, pockets of beaters with short-legged tracking dogs bring the game on the move, driving them toward the shooters. Carcasses of boars and roebucks are then brought back to the basecamp where they are quickly hung and gutted.

Several turns follow with pauses in between. Before dark the catch of the day is laid on a bed of pine branches after which, in a brief closing ceremony, hunters are mentioned after their game tally.
