The first rifle I ever fired was an AR-15A1 in boot camp.
Later I bought a lever action, a M1917 Enfield, built a flintlock. Now I find myself with a bow - and finally noticed the trend. What's next, a spear?

A spear with atlatl, one without, a stone knife, a stone chopper, a rock. That's about as far as you can go.

How about a club. You know, caveman style. I hear you can get a wife that way too :evil:

I hear that there's guys out there who hunt hogs and ferrel pigs with dogs and a knife. That's pretty devolved if you ask me. I'd also love to see it in action and maybe take a try at it.

AR-15A1 => lever action => M1917 Enfield => flintlock => bow => spear => rock => bare hands...
Then you'll have to hunt by trying to absorb your prey through osmosis. :D :uhoh: :scrutiny: :D

Wouldn't he end up trying to scratch/claw/bite something to death somewhere before the osmosis though?

I've heard spear/knife hunting is pretty darn exciting... take a look in the hunting forums for stories.

On some level I'd be greatly amused by somebody attempting to bite a deer to death. On another level I'd be horrified if he succeeded. Or if he failed spectacularly in certain... disentrailing ways.

You could always catch fish by "wiggling" or whatever it's called... getting fish to bite your fingers and grabbing their jaw.
