I just watched Jared Allen (DE from the Vikings) kill a bull elk with a spear, on TV. What are your thoughts on spear hunting?

    I saw Tred Bart kill a hog with a knife. I wouldn't personally recommend it, but I don't have a problem with it.

      I don't have a problem with it, as long as it's a clean kill. Of course I don't want to give it a try anytime soon.

        If it's legal, was he in a penned ranch?

          I think it would take a lot of guts to try and kill an elk with a spear. What if you missed or just wounded it? Someone was probably standing by to shoot it if it charged, but it's still pretty wild.

            I do not have a problem with it as long as it is a clean kill and legal. Something I do not think I would have the heart to do. My hat goes off to those who do hunt like that. If that is not under the deffinition of a man, I don't know what is.

              I do not know if the ranch was penned or not. He was in a tree stand when he killed the elk. He did, however, kill a buffalo with a spear from the ground.

              Both kills looked as clean as any bowkill I have made or seen.

                Not my cup of tea. But, if it is legal and he wasn't in a holding pen more power to him.

                  i would give it a try if we could in ohio, safer than a gun, at least its only gonna travel as far as u can throw, unlike a bullet.

                    This is impressive. He has essentially embraced the hunting techniques of our primitive ancestors, from a time when a spear was cutting edge weaponry and survival of the fittest was based solely on physical achievement. It’s always cool to see a man forego the high-tech gadgets of modern day and pursue his quarry in the simplest manner.

                      Hey, the fella went “NATIVE!”

                      If it’s legal, go for it!!

                      What kind of camo was it?

                      Was it FIG LEAF?

                      Must be nice to throw a spear yet alone a ball!

                        I still think there should be a season where we jump out of a tree and cut the bull's throat with a good sharp knife. Hang on tight so you won't have to trail him.

                          If Kentucky had a spear season, I'd be out there!
                          Anything to get out in the woods.

                            I encourage this, and I'm thinking about trying it. I've killed a few rabbits with a small spear I made, and if I can get my hands on a nice big spear, the deer better be polishing up on their predator sniffing skills.

                              What show was it? I guess I would have to see the circumstances before offering an opinion. In general if you can make a clean kill on a fair chase animal I don't see anything wrong with it. The more challenge the greater the reward, that's what got me into muzzleloading and then bowhunting.
