    Well, I don't think it's very difficult to guess who my childhood hunting hero was....

    Alexander Sasha Siemel [Aleksandrs Ziemelis] (1890-1970) was an adventurer, hunter, guide, actor, writer, photographer, and lecturer.
    He spoke seven languages and boasted of having experienced more adventure in a single year than most men had witnessed in a lifetime.
    He is a legend among sportsmen, having successfully hunted more than 300 jaguars or 鍍igres, as the big cats are colloquially known in parts of Latin America擁n the Mato Grosso jungles of Brazil.
    Siemel's accomplishments in pursuing the large and often dangerous jaguar (the biggest cat in the western hemisphere and third largest in the world) are all the more impressive due to the fact that on many of his hunts he was armed only with a spear.

    good day sand rat from just across a couple of dunes and a small salt pond...[lol]

    pig sticking was a very popular sport in the 1880's in the Brit army in India with teams hotly contesting the cup!

I asked him what he shot them with. He said, "Coach, I used a spear!" I walked away shaking my head.
