Default First kill of the season

got my first kill on new permission today, she was very out of breath for a few minutes and then she started to pluck, shes also flying 1.5o z above her hunting weight so to be fair she did great.

took a while for me to get the rabbit off of her and reward her, hope she doesn't feel too robbed.

Just wondered how you people go about exchanging kill for food after the catch?
