9-year-old wins red deer imitation championship


This Dutch regional TV video is about the first Dutch red deer belling imitation championship, on 1 September 2013, in National Park De Hoge Veluwe.

Ten people participated, including two women, one Belgian and two Britons. The imitators were allowed to use hunting horns, other musical instruments, etc. About a thousand spectators came. The jury included a game warden and an opera singer.

The youngest participant, a nine-year-old boy, Sem Rijnhout from Apeldoorn, won. The first prize was a set of deer antlers.

This video shows Sem Rijnhout belling; a year later.

After all imitation, now a real red deer
