When a covey takes wing, hunters charge and blaze away with shotguns. The authors also saw Kashgai riders bring down running antelope with deadly fire. The mounts are Arabian stallions, specially trained for hunting. Here a tribal chief, riding a handsome gray, lets reins dangle while he uses both hands to fire. Behind him a companion tries a one-handed shot.
