    Yea, rather than shooting them deer in the hip (as shown in the lower right) we aim for the chest.

    Would they be aiming for the femoral artery, in the hind leg?

    I think that's what it's called... :neuspeuter:

    Reminds me of cartoon I saw once about the evalution of hunting. Showed a primitive man with a spear, then a longbow, then a muzzleloader, then a rifle, then a muzzleloader then a compound, then a longbow and last a spear again. Each man got more modern. I sure wish I would have saved it. A picture is worth 10,000 words when I am talking!:stickfight:

    Well ~ I was more focused on the hunter on horse-back, hunting with spears, as far as coming a long ways...but since you brought it up, couldn't those be crude drawings of elk?! Pretty good size, since they're larger than the horses the cavemen are riding...

    When I see these drawings, I'm totally amazed by our ancestors.

    No Cabela's or Bass Pro, no camo, no weather channel...nuthin'!

    Nuthin' but hand-made tools & gear, pure guts & survival. No guts = no survival...forget the glory.

    And no styrofoam, shrink-wrapped meat, either...hunt or die , or should I say, hunt successfully ~ or die.

    AND ~ if you weren't a successful hunter, I guess you had no hides for clothing, either. Just have to run around nekkid, I guess... :hysterical:
