In his work of 1929, made on the base of a huge amount of factual data, Z. shows that hunting, fishing and other trades have their own special magical concepts and practices. Hunting magic, according to the researcher, originally arose from the necessary precautions associated with uncertainty as a result, and sometimes with risk and danger during its implementation. In this regard, the idea arose of the need to “deceive or not offend” a game animal that can take revenge if it gets angry; therefore, speaking about it, people had to use allegorical expressions. Besides, it was necessary to observe special magic rules in relation to hunting equipment, hunting as a process (as well as fishing, etc.) and cutting prey.
