Duck baskets are intended for safe breeding of ducks. The craft of the hunter has many traditions. Braiding and placing duck pits is one of them. 30 baskets were made and placed by hunters themselves. Because the baskets are above the water and do not offer easy access for other species than the duck, the duck nests are less easy prey for crows, cats and foxes. Hunters are voluntarily active in the area in various areas.
