Thank you for posting your pics, it's interesting to see a hunting style, and game, so different than what we're use to seeing here in the U.S. I was at first taken back by the dead baboon, as I've only ever seen them in the zoo, but do understand that it can be a very aggressive, vicious, and nuscience animal. Are there different seasons for different game there or can you hunt most any game year round? Thanks again for the insight into your world of hunting.

I believe sekelbos will chime in here, basically you can hunt throughout the year on private land, provincial laws differ from area to area on public land. Best time though is between March and October due to it being the cooler months (fall/autumn and winter)

This big dog baboon went rogue and had to be culled [with the necessary permission] .I followed it up with my spear in the dense head high tambuki grass with limited visibility,as I [wrongly!] thought that I will find it dead.

It very nearly got me that day because I could not believe that any animal with a wound like that could still have the survival instinct [adrenalin ? ] or just plain meanness to live that long and move so incredibly fast, far and well after that 30-06 shot.

Most human beings would have died on the spot with a wound like that!

It just shows you to never become complacent in the wild and NO animal is dead until its dead!

Thanks for the explanation of the hunting seasons there. It makes sense that one would hunt in the cooler months, just as here.

Have you ever had any problems with other large predators moving into the area after a kill like that? I'd think the smell would be carried rather quickly through the bush, attracting other hungry animals.

Sekelbos, love the spear - make it yourself or did you buy it? I'm really keen on getting something like that!

I also just love the spear,and I think for the purposes of this blog [SHTF] its important to know what alternatives to a gun [or no/low on bullets] are available,what said alternative tools are capable of and then maybe try your hand a bit practically at them,just for that one day 'what if...' situation...

[later on I plan to put some bow and arrow picture up as well,time permitting..]

In the beginning I've made my own spears out of the flat spring of a toyota land cruiser, with lots and lots of sweat and filing...[lol]



Later I've bought a cold steel boar spear. I personally like the multi-purpose bigger blade and heavier spear more than the lighter throwing spear.



Its personal preference I think ,and definitely horses for courses, but the bigger one makes a fearsome wound channel and cut up and damage all types of internal organs and things while penetrating deeply and consequently ,while being dragged by the animal,the heavy spear handle also let the blade cut fearsome internal secondary wounds that assist in killing the prey quicker [maybe a bit gruesome to mention here,but its the practical reality out there!]



Apart from the hunting side, to me this big spear is also more multi-functional in the sense that it will work excellent in the role of a camp/home self defense tool as well!

Aaah,to take some rest at the campfire out in the wild after a hard days hunting on foot!
Unbeatable!!

This is one of my first homemade spears, with the hardened dry skin of a warthog at the bottom near the blade..

Yup. I wait in the treestand with a KaBar and I pounce when the unsuspecting bambi walks underneath. Bucks are a little trickier as you have to worry about getting skewered by the antlers.
