Abstract:This paper summarizes information on the contemporary practice of ambush hunting which was collected in 1976; it is based on interviews with a total of twelve Basarwa hunters from two localities in Botswana. Supplementary interview data were obtained from approximately 80 other hunters. Additional research efforts included the mapping of most of the ambush hunting locations used by the informants (to record blind, game trail, and kill locations), the description, measurement, and photographing of a number of extant blinds, and the excavation of a sample of ethnographically recorded hunting birds.
