Those alpine wetlands always have been agricultural land. Of course harvest was low in form of sour grasses not suitable for the modern turbocharged cows, and so it was decided to drain the area. Started more than a decade ago, drainage is now in full effect and the land dry enough even for heavy machines with rotary mowers. With this transition the land lost its quality as habitat for deers, roes and the like – and with it, the hunting stand got useless.
