According to Mr. Peter Jwanle, Secretary Abwor Dyis Community Development Association, “Kwat Pas the name tag, it means always the last hunting, when it is in aspect of fighting those Animals that come around to eat the crop in the farm land. If that hunting is done, there is no any other hunting again. Hunting using bow and arrow we don’t use gun but we used the natural weapons to fight those Animals that usually come to destroy our crops.”
