Compared to a gun, it actually is a terrible weapon. What did you expect, you have to run up close to animals and stab them to death. Most animals detect you and run away before that. I think the only people who use spears are africans and the guys that use dogs to hunt down hogs. It's only ever useful in a few types of hunting.
Fucking liberal faggots. It's just a tool, there's no such thing as an "assault spear." I habe every right to own a spear, it's in tbe constitution! Take you sissy nospear bullshit back to commiefornia with your Prius and your gay tranny boyfriend.
>>665216 The problem is that spear control legislation is written by people who don't understand spears. I'm all for keeping Spears out of the hands of criminals and terrorists, but you can't have a bunch of arbitrary rules about shaft circumference, center of balance, etc.
I mean just because my fauchard has a fork doesn't make it some "military grade" spear.
A deer stand in a tree, and a food plot /feeder right below the stand you would need a few seasons of allowing the deer to use this plot undisturbed, you would need excellent wind conditions, but it would be possible to get a spear throw at one from a stand.
the trick would be getting enough balance that high up to do it. There are some videos out there of north american spear hunting.
>>665143 >Hurr durr I want to hunt with a spear because reasons
Hunting with spears is hard, laborious and dangerous even if you actually know what you're doing. Your cold steel assegai also has no crossguard and probably a shitty shaft connection which will mean that your spearhead might break just when you need it.
>>665143 I'm not going to rip into you like everyone else for wanting to hunt with a spear, if thats what you want to do then thats fine, i think everyone in this thread would actually like to experience that despite how much they might call you out on it.
But no it's not really a good hunting weapon. It's the first weapon ever made, and it was quickly realised by primitive man to not be the best at hunting. You're going to need to get very close to an animal, which is very hard, and then once you stab it, it will be very pissed off and probably attack you.
I don't know what makes that an "Assegai", it's just a spear to me. It doesn't have a crossguard which means you won't be able to hold anything at the end of the spear, it would just go all the way through.
If you really want to do it, get some javelins and practice with them, and take a gun for backup.
They may be a meme company for you, but damn, the shit they put their stuff through is quit impressive and brutal. I can't seem to find the youtube vids for them, they must be under a different name or have been taken down a long time ago. But, the big fat guy was the one doing the abuse tests.
>>665191 Correct me if my anthropology isn't accurate, but aren't spears the invention that brought humans to the top of the food chain? You know, since we could use them to take down mammoths and defend against tigers and shit?
>>671123 yes and no, solo hunting with a spear is not going to work well compared to group hunting. Spear hunts work best when you have a team to trap the game and keep them there while your other team goes in for the kill, co-operative hunting. Hunting game big enough to need a spear also means big enough to harm you and a spear may not be enough to stop it. Hunter gatherers mitigate against injury and danger where possibly, so I would imagine the solo hunter going for smaller game with other methods mostly bar obvious luck with a big animal trapped, old, unaware and close enough for a kill strike attempt (like from a pit up into it), etc.
>>673440 >>673723 also it's best to wait for the right moment. first the male eats once he had his full it's the females turn and still much is left of the kill then you advance. the male is the fighter the females are the hunters the male won't fight if he had his belly full the females won't fight period. not very wise to try take food from a hungry male.
