The pygmy canopy honey. Meat from the bush in a traditional basket. The men make traps of wood and lianas to trap antelopes and boar. The meat is shared at the camp and the surplus sold. The pygmies also hunt with a gun for the Bantu salesmen. The hunt, with a permit, is open legally from May 1 to October 20. The natives are authorized to hunt all year for their needs with traditional means if they do not trade or sell the meat. Meat from the bush can be found in the markets year-round and throughout the country. Sangha, Congo
