Persistence hunting

Persistence hunting

Any time you go to parties out here in Portland, inevitbly you’ll run into people that think the are “all that” at running or biking.  Now there are lots of really good bikers and runners – and I run a 5k daily to stay in shape/good health.  But when I think of a good runner, I think of these guys.  Couple of interesting notes:

  • The hunt happens during the heat of the day
  • The belief is the man can out last the prey because he can sweat to cool himself and replenish water while running -whereas the kudu cannot and overheats/becomes exhausted.  Would this work in cooler climates?
  • He’s wearing average old shoes at 3:38 – nothing fancy
  • The chase takes 8 hours.
