Sahih Muslim Book 7, Hadith Number 2704.

Chapter : Hunting is forbidden for one who is in the state of Ihram.

Ibn ‘Abbas (Allah be pleased with them) reported that al-Sa’b b. Jaththama presented to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) a wild ass as he was in a state of Ihram, and he returned it to him saying: If we were not in a state of Ihram, we would have accepted it from you.
