Hunting Mastery Selected Tips
Deer hunting is an interesting thing that reminds you of those golden old ages of 19th centuries, where a handsome hunk well equipped with all hunting material rides on horse searching for his target animal either for the purpose of displaying his masculine powers or for enticing and wooing his lady love.
Interpretive schools had in common a tendency to emphasize the importance among humans, then as now, of social cooperation, either as an essential ingredient in defense against predators or as an integral component of successful hunting. Another frequent element in these rather anecdotal scenes displayed the use of intelligence and guile by hominids to compensate for their relative lack of strength and of such inbuilt weapons as dagger-like canine teeth. Understandably for those days when the human fossil record was tiny, ancient and extinct kinds of humans were most commonly viewed somewhat as junior-league versions of ourselves, with at least echoes of our own vulnerabilities and strengths. Well, all of this makes a good story, even though there is precious little evidence of the regular domestication of fire before about 400,000 years ago (or maybe, according to the latest reports, a little more). But are all good stories necessarily true And more specifically, is this one true If...
However, in the 1960s, investigation of the eastern margin of the Cordilleran glacier and the western margin of the Laurentide ice sheet indicated that there might, at times, have been a long, narrow ice-free corridor between the two great ice barriers. The idea certainly grabbed the popular imagination and was soon reconstructed as a kind of 'superhighway' between cliffs of ice. Once opened, it was imagined that a sudden flood of big-game hunters would have flowed down the corridor following migratory animals such as mammoth, caribou, musk-ox and bison right into the ice-free heartlands of North America. But in recent decades the picture has become a lot more complicated and interesting.
The discovery of many animal bones at a number of American sites seemed to support the idea that the early human occupiers of the continent were ruthlessly efficient big-game hunters. It has been claimed that the remains of whole family groups or even herds are present at some of these sites. However, it can be very difficult to prove whether the animals did actually belong to single groups and were slain by a single 'mass kill', or whether they were 'recruited' more gradually over a longer period of time.
After spending 25 years as 'homemaker and mother' to her three children, Carolyn joined her better-known husband Eugene in 1980 in his search for comets and asteroids. Eugene, a geologist who is considered the father of planetary impact geology and has 29 comets to his name, was killed in a car accident in 1997 while hunting for impact craters in outback Australia.
M45 arose around 35,000 years ago in a man born in central Asia. He descended from the M9 Eurasian clan that had moved to the north of the mountainous Hindu Kush and onto the game-rich steppes of present-day Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and southern Siberia. Although big game was plentiful, the environment on the Eurasian steppes became increasing hostile as the glaciers of the last ice age began to expand. The reduction in rainfall may have induced desert-like conditions on the southern steppes, forcing this group to follow the herds of game north. To exist in such
The Bimini Islands lie just off the Atlantic coast of Florida, some 40 miles from Miami. This island paradise offers visitors the chance to fish, shop, boat, or just relax in the sun with a cool drink. Former residence of Ernest Hemingway, a man known for his ability to enjoy the good life, Bimini also claims to be 'the big game fishing capital of the world.'
Named after a site in La Gravette, France, Gravettian culture represented a new technological and artistic phase in western Europe. Archaeologists discovered sets of tools different from the preceding era (Aurignacian culture). These stone tools had a distinctive, small pointed blade, which humans used to hunt big game. Gravettian culture is also known for voluptuous carvings of big-bellied females often dubbed Venus figures. The small, frequently hand-sized sculptures appear to be of pregnant women and may have served as fertility icons, or emblems conferring protection of some sort, or may have represented goddesses. These early European ancestors used communal hunting techniques, created shell jewelry, and used mammoth bones
