Hunting pits are the visible remains of the hunting tradition of the area of Hossa. Some are individual, some of the traps are gathered in a several trap systems. The original diameter of the wells was mostly a couple of meters, the depth was almost the same. Nowadays, they are distinguished by low pits between ponds and ridges.
