Mating Call Contest

Using ox horns, snail shells and plant stems, eight men and one woman battled each other for the title of German deer calling champion, celebrating a centuries old hunting tradition.

Some mating calls however can be mistaken by similar sounds of constipation...

Andreas Toepfer was declared the winner Friday after contestants were judged in three deer-calling disciplines meant to mimic mating sounds.

"It's not always about shooting or hunting but simply about a nature experience where you can attract a deer to just a few meters away."

The competitors were asked to reproduce the calls of a red deer during breeding season, which runs from September into October. The calls beckon deer out of their cover in the forest.

This year Hildegard Zervos became the first female to participate in the 13-year old competition.

"It is a joy," Zervos told . "It's simply fun and one's a bit closer to nature."

Toepfer, who finished third last year, will advance to the European deer-calling championships in Slovenia.
