As a person who was dumb enough to actually hunt deer a season with a spear, I can tell you, most definitely, that spears suck.

So you are saying that a 40 yr hunting vet with a stick is better than a noob with a dead zeroed 308. Rolleyes, its every bit the weapon as it is the hunter.

i didnt say the vet nor the noob...........the better hunter would be the one that used what they had the best

example: a cave man with a spear or a native american indian with a bow and arrow was a better "hunter" than any today including the vet

No u said its the hunter not the weapon. Word for word. Simply not true. A modern hunter with modern equiptment is far superior to any antique spear or bow period.

i stand by what i said........"better hunters" not "better killers"

we snipers hide and wait for our prey to present itself (targets of oportunity) then kill it.........no hunting involved....unlike our more highly skilled "hunter" (though primitive) ancesters.
