What about gators? I used to watch Tarzan do it most Saturdays when I was a kid and it didnít look too hard. Tarzan always won....

From my recolactions Tarzan's wounds after wrestling a lion to death were less than I have had trying to give one of my cats a pill.

Think the Plains Indians and the buffalo.    Itís no big deal to shoot one from 200 yards in a railroad car with a .45-70.  But can you imagine grappling with one using rocks and pointy sticks?"

It depends on how hungry I am.

No matter how it ends, you wonít be hungry any more!

 The First Nation people were smart enough to not confront a buffalo until they had bow and arrow and later horses. Before the bow they used to drive them over cliffs. Buffalo Jump. Still very dangerous. Yeah in those days I would have been very hungry. Buffalo are big and unpredictable and I am basically a Python "run away" kind of guy.

The Ulm Pishkun (First People's Buffalo Jump) in west/central Montana is one of the crazy coolest things I have ever seen...  Thinking about the young scouts crawling thru the grasses in wolf skins, charging a herd of buffalo with nothing but the sound of your voice and a pointy stick for a weapon...  The planning and effort of rolling the boulders in position on the causeway to form the big V...  and the thought that if the herd zigs when you meant them to zag; might mean they veer off and your tribe missed out on the biggest meal payday of the year..  It was a very powerful place to me.

A coyote, if I have to. I routinely chase them off a baseball bat when a primal yell will do. I'd throw down bare-handed to protect one of my babies against one, though. :thewife:
