    Even the American Indian developed a bow and arrow.

    I would bet a few of those guys would say the same thing if they watched you or me go hunting.

    I couldn't agree more about the stone age intellegence.

    Interesting video. I just returned from working in Africa a year ago. I saw all kinds of game that killed by using dogs and short spears. The dogs would run down the game and the people would finish them off with the spears. No real big game like in this video, but lots of Kudu, wild boars and even a baboon. Meat is meat I guess. Kudu and wild boar by the way is not bad. I passed on the baboon.

    The baboon does not sound so good. I suppose they do the whole monkey brain thing also.

    That's the way your ancestors hunted. Then the bow was invented, and today we use a firearm. Hunting is hunting, we either do it, or we become vegetarians! What I thought was interesting was that it took so many spears to take down a large animal. I suppose you can only get so much penetration with that technology. Looking at the weapons used, and the size of some of the animals I don't think much got into the kill zone/vital organs. Most probably just succumbed to blood loss.
