A Kashyyyk greyclimber in a hunting trap

"I hope there's nothing out there that's particularly hungry."
"I wouldn't count on that. But from what I know about Rodia, the locals have hunted all the big beasties to near extinction."
Shella Rinou and Kelric[src]

Hunting was the action of trapping or killing creatures. Hunting was often a leisure sport on civilized planets. Often the hunted quarry would be used for food or apparel. Those who hunted large creatures were known as big-game hunters. In the case of uncivilized planets, the most undeveloped of civilizations were forced to hunt creatures as a necessary source of food. On some planets with deeply traditional cultural system, such as Kashyyyk, hunting certain creatures was a sacred rite.

In the case of Kashyyyk, young Wookiee warriors would single handedly hunt the Katarn, a quick and deadly creature, to prove their worth. It could be very profitable if large or rare animals were hunted. Many creatures, however, were illegal to be hunted. With such a large galaxy, though, galactic hunting regulations could only do so much. Bounty hunting was of similar practice but involved sentients.
