A History Of Hunting


hw4Hunting game for food, clothing and shelter is a big part of the story of the human race. It predates the human civilization we know today in many ways. There are many discoveries that are being made that confirm that notion. An Asian fossilized spearhead discovered recently was dated at over 16,000 years old, for example. There is also evidence that we used larger animals for food almost two million years ago.

The earliest form of hunting involved, as far as the experts can tell, didn’t involved weapons like spears or bow and arrows shot from a distance. Believe it or not, our ancestors caught their food using the same method we use to catch the bus to work when we’re late. We ran after it. Before he learned to use long range weapons, early man had no other way of catching his dinner than being persistent and wearing it down over a long trek, sometimes even in the oppressive midday heat. Some early hunters would chase antelope over 20 miles in heat over 100 degrees.

Persistence hunting would be the order of the day. African hunters would chase a Kudu, which is an early version of the antelope, by startling the animal so it ran away. They would chase the beast at a fast pace, and, while the faster Kudu would always be further ahead, the hunters would catch up to it when it took time to rest in the shade. The hunter would eventually finish the animal off with a spear, but not until he was at close range. This type of hunting is still practiced in Southern Africa.

If you think about it, this is the same tactics shambler zombies use to walk down prey that starts out faster, but with no secure location in mind to escape to, eventually runs out of gas.

We can learn a lot from primitive hunters. What if you had to escape zombies into the woods with little more then the clothes on your back?

One of the most important tools that you can not do without is a knife. You can use a knife for many different things such as cutting various things, building a shelter, killing food, as well as protection from other creatures both animal and zombie.

If you find yourself in the woods and needing a handy weapon such as a knife you can also make them yourself in many different ways.

One of the most popular types of homemade knives can be made of stone. Simply find a stone that is pointed. Once you have selected the stone you are going to use to create a knife your next step is to lash the stone to either a stick or wood, creating a knife end with the stone.

Another popular knife you can create is a bone knife. These are very popular amongst survivalist and can be easily created from any type of bone that you can find, such as an animal bone. After you have a bone you then take a rock or wood and shape it into a pointed knife. A bone knife can be very useful in making punctures.

Note: Never use zombie bones to build a bone knife as the bones are infected and will pass the infection onto whatever the knife is used for.

Another type of knife that you can make when stranded out in the wilderness is a wood knife. You want to make sure that you choose a type of wood that is hard and dry. You want to take your piece of wood and use a stone or other type of wood to shape the piece of wood to a pointed end. A wooden knife is one of the most common choices of weapons to use when stranded in the wilderness, because they are easily created and the materials are literally right at your fingertips.

You can also make a knife with bamboo. Bamboo is very easy to shape but still provides a strong point to use as your jagged edge of your knife. Taking a stone and shaping the knife with a sharp point is very easy to do, that is if you can find a source of bamboo in the area that you are lost in.

You can also find scrap metals abandon throughout the wilderness that you can use and have been proven to be very effective in protecting yourself from other predators, as well as building and cutting things. The metal acts just as a real knife does and if you are lucky enough to find some spare metal around, you can easily shave it down into the shape of a knife with a very sharp point.

With changes in human society, hunting evolved full circle where we used to hunt for food and clothing skins, now we hunt zombie and for provisions. As we began again to grow our own food and keep animals, hunting becomes a specialized task. Not just the traditional masculine endeavor anymore, hunting became a specific duty with professional zombie stalkers acquiring precise training to survive the hunt.

Hunting has had other effects on our recovering modern society as well. Various animals have been used to aid the hunter, but none has become as important to us as the well trained zombie hunting dog. The use of the ancestors of the wolf to defend the camp, retrieve prey and be our loyal companions has set the dog apart. Its domestication, which took thousands of years, is considered a remarkable accomplishment. The tie between hunting man and dog goes so far back that the very word for hunting in ancient Greek is derived from the word dog.
