I was told that cowboys not only used bandanas to protect their mouths and noses from dust etc but that they also used the colourful designs to identify their kills on a buffalo hunt. As they shot a buffalo they would drop a bandana beside it to identify their kill later. Is this true?

Never heard this one but I guess anything is possible - it is certainly now worn as a fashion item when of course this wasn't originally the case but it had the first function that you mention. Not sure about identifying animals though.
