DIY Bow Hunters
American Hunter-Gatherers I have found a nice site on Bow Hunting. Bow Hunting has been a technique used for thousands of years worldwide to provide food and truly takes skill. It is difficult and often requires tracking skill to recover the kill. Due to the fact of placing an exact shot even the most experienced hunters must prepare their hunt accordingly. Many states and territories have bans on Bow Hunting so check your local regulations. The opposition considers Bow Hunting as cruel. As a Hunter for food the means in which we choose to hunt cannot be swayed by compassion but the need for our own survival. I would say if the tools of the grocery store and fast food joints were erased the view on how you would hunt to eat would not be argued. Being and American Hunter-Gatherer you have to have an arsenal of the mind, body and weapons to be able to live in any environment. If mankind had not created the tools in which we use to kill game throughout the millenia we would be bones in an animal den and nothing more. Naturalist and non-hunters, vegetarians could rely on gathering, and farming skills but would also have to rely on crops to grow and still hunt for seed and plant. As I stated Bow Hunting takes skill and the practice of archery. All Hunting skills including fishing takes the knowledge of "How To" it is not inherited but learned. Bow Hunting is an Honorable way to provide food it just takes harder work and greater skill to achieve success.
