Hunting birds with a hammer attached to the end of a long, flexible pole is a definite challenge but these fellows have made it into an art. They take it very seriously. In the "land a little left of reality," the ritual has become much more important than the prize. Whoever has the best costume, more than who gets the bird, wins.
Many people ask about the fish. It's a decoy. It just is. The final question, however, is always about the sixth bird hunter. Most people can only find five, the sixth one is so good that you can't even see him!
