I said: 'We are those people who shoot (at hunt).' He said: 'Whatever your arrow catches for you, eat it.'" He said: "Then I said: 'Indeed we are a people who travel. We come across Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians, and we do not find utensils other than theirs.'

He replied: 'If you send your trained dog and you recite the Name of Allah upon it, then eat from what it catches for you. But if it eats from it, then do not eat it, indeed he has only caught it for himself.' I asked: 'O Apostle of Allah! ﷺ What do you say if our dogs get mixed with other dogs.'

Muhammad bin Yahya said: "Abu 'Asim was asked about Mujath-thamah and he said: "To ensnare a bird or something and then shoot it."
