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 think it is generally a rigged set up for the camera. So in other words, cowardly. I saw that Tred Barta crap. He bragged about how he was going to kill a wild hog with a knife. Then what did he do? The loudmouth coward had a pack of dogs hold the hog down while he jumped in and out slicing the hogs neck, and making damn sure his pussy ass didn't get hurt. That soured me on him and any of his stuff.

      Nuthin' like the old ways...
      Takes sand to do that, it does.
      As far as the Ted Barta thing , I didn't see the video, but I understand bringing the hog to bay with dogs is how it has always been done, with knife, spear or hunting sword. and it still takes sand to do it.

        I would hate to feed the family with only a spear. However, no doubt wild animals back then did not fear man as much as they do today. I mean in Alaskan wilderness the Grouse barely get out of your way. Alaskans kill them with a rock, stick or 22 revolver. I posted a pick of one sitting in a Spruce tree only about 10 feet from the camera.

        When I was a kid growing up in Florida my dad was a bulldozer operator. He cleared land for Citrus groves, cattle pasture, etc. Dad always had a ball peen hammer on the crawler and would throw it to kill rabbits. One day he brought home a giant bull frog bagged with the hammer. The legs was the size of chicken legs and (once fried)too tough to chew. Another time riding a tractor to feed cattle the old man stopped, pulled out his 38 special and (1 shot) killed a quail that was running in front of the tractor. I was there, the quail was delicious. We also ate lots of turtles,fish and other game.

          I guess I just like centerfire technology too much. If someone goes out into the wild with a canteen, a knife, and a spear, and comes back with food, more power to them.

                As long as they know what they are doing and can make a clean kill then I don't see anything wrong with it. Seems to me that it would take lots of practice.
