Back in the early ages we were hunters and gatherers, so our lifestyle was looking more at animal behaviour and the weather. When we had rains at a certain area, usually around September, we would go and prepare a temporary shelter knowing that there would be green pastures and a good concentration of wildlife. The eland was the main animal to be hunted; it is big and could sustain the whole extended family, and during that time the elands would have enough meat and fat. The bone marrow would be used as edible oil or cooking oil. This hunting would normally start around November when the animals had gained weight and were healthy because of the green vegetation they had to feed on.
