What are the returns to hunters when they employ this technology and related hunting strategies? While none of the data collected in the three surveys discussed here are commensurate, they each present a body of quantitative information that we can draw upon to answer this question. The data accumulated in the course of ethnozoological enquiries suggests that a community of three hundred or so persons catches ﬁfteen animals in a month, about one-half of these being small birds and rodents (Table 2.1). These statistics are low, one animal caught about every two years per head of population, and many of these are small creatures. These data were not systematically collected community-wide and we might anticipate that they overlook many animals caught.
