Special dogs were trained for the hunting, which, upon encountering a wild animal would bark to draw the attention of the hunter to the spot, while, at the same time, preventing the animal from escaping. The hunter would then come with his gun to shoot the animal. During night hunting, the hunters use a special type of lantern (ikang iso), attached to their forehead, the light of which would dazzle the animal and make it stand still, making it easy for the hunter to shoot and kill it.

 

Another effective method of catching wildlife, is the use of traps. These are set on identified routes of wildlife passage by expert trap setters. A bait, such as a cassava tuber, may be used to attract the animal to the trap.

 

Bush meat is highly valued and, generally, costs more per unit weight than that of the domestic animal. In recent times, the production of bush meat in the area has been drastically reduced. This is attributed, principally, to the forest destruction for farming, urban development and industrialisation, which reduces the natural habitat of the animals. The number and diversity of the wildlife have been greatly reduced, some species becoming almost extinct. Also, the number of experienced hunters and trap setters has also greatly reduced.
