Thank you for the explanation. I used to live in a wooded area, and we had a lot of hunters. As much as I loved seeing the deer come into the yard, they do need to be controlled.

I have seen pictures of other royal hunts where the day's kill was laid out for viewing. Some people were shocked that the toddler Prince Christian was there. When hunting is done right and respectfully, I have no problems with it.

Indeed.

And Christian didn't see anything that children since the dawn of mankind haven't seen on a daily basis. We are just removed from nature nowadays.

Deers here in DK breed like they were paid for it! And if they weren't culled, nature would cull the population - in a much more brutal way.
When we first moved in outhere we had reddeer in the backyard too, completely freaking out our old dog, but now the hedge has grown up - and we are no longer waken up at dawn by a furious dog.

Reminds me of when our oldest was 4 years old and grandfather had received hens from the neighbor. With a hatchet he did whatever one need to do if you should be able to eat them. But when you cut the head of a chicken or a hen it can still run around for several seconds because its nerve cells in the spine is pre-programmed to control its movements.

Our daughter helped her farfar (grandfather) all the way to see how we get the food we eat. She did got some big eyes when they ran around there without heads But all we adults in the family have seen that too as little ones, and now our children, and we are all ended up relatively normal In Denmark, at least in many families, it's a naturalness that children see where the food we put in our mouths comes from.

When she was 7 years old she was for the first time with grandfather on a hunting in the forest. Because she had talked too much - and too high - and thus scared all the animals away the result that evening was meat from the freezer!

IIRC Christian was allowed to attend his first hunting with daddy when they were in Greenland back in August.

A BT video of the beginning of the hunt. http://www.bt.dk/royale/se-videoen-k...-til-kongejagt

As you can see there are traditions, like the hunting horns sounding before the start of the hunt. Frederik being the host greeting employees and fellow hunters. And before the hunt starts, Frederik, againg being the host, give a little welcoming speech and emphasize that safety has priority. After that he hands over to skovfogeden = the head-forester, who is the one responsible for the hunt, the location of the hunters, safety and Schweiss-dogs (*) finding animals who may only have been wounded.
The game at such state-hunts belongs to the state, so the hunters can buy any shot animals afterwards. Otehrwise they are sold to stores and the proceeds goes to the forest.

We are having a backroom discussion as to whether it's Rudolph the Reindeer Frederik has depicted on his novelty-tie. Perhaps someone with a more keen eye can determine for us?

(*) In DK hunters who wound animals and drivers who hit animals are required by law to contact the authorities and mark the spot where the animal was last seen. The authorities will then contact a number of hunters who have schweiss dogs, they will track down the wounded animals and dispatch with them. That service is free.
Schweiss dogs are named after the hunting expression for traces of blood from animals that have been shot. Danish schweiss dogs are very good indeed and similar organisations are now emerging in UK among other places, based on the Danish model.
Those of us who live in the countryside will from time to time encounter a sick animal or hit one by the car, so personally I very much appreciate that service.

^^^My parents lived in a gated community in Northern California that had a large herd of deer and flocks of wild turkeys within the fenced area. Every now and then a cougar would come in and help balance the population but viruses could also do their part in thinning the herd when necessary. The security staff could call in animal control to take care of any animal that was injured in a traffic accident. The speed limit was 25mph but since deer are often active in the morning and at twilight there were collisions now and then.
