Summary No matter how sophisticated or technologically advanced we become, there is still something within that beckons us to "the hunt." This desire creates the customs, beliefs, and rituals related to hunting--for deer, hogs, as well as fish and snakes, etc. These rituals and customs lead to some of our most treasured folklore.
