Assuming, again, you mean what spirit do you get (the fetish could be anything useful, presumably a spotty one)? Actually, using the Bear spirit example in the rules, you get what trait of the Leopard you were after. An Ambush spirit, a Leaping spirit, a Climb Trees spirit, a Motionless and Silent spirit, whatever.

> What about an ancestor spirit who was a great hunter?

A trait or Ability he/she was well known for. Stalk, Walk Silently, Sureshot, Carry Big Deer, whatever.

I'd agree. But the Shaman/Spirit Talker would have to find one within his/her Tradition, or else deal with the resultant problems (it'll be 1-use unless it's Integrated, most importantly). With an Ancestor, you could just go politely and ask for help...

Something small, hunched over, and very, very still... with very small eyes that follow you wherever you go...
