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.

Years ago, I was a young high school track coach in Texas. I had the privilege of coaching one of those athletes that makes people think you know what you are doing. He was one of four high jumpers in all of Texas that year that had cleared 7 feet. We had an off weekend in the middle of our season with no track meet. The next Monday I saw my high jumper and asked him what he did over the weekend. He said, "Coach, I went pig hunting." I said, "Great! did you get any." He said, "Yes sir, I got two." I asked him what he shot them with. He said, "Coach, I used a spear!" I walked away shaking my head.
