With bow hunting, the deal is too often that the animal is wounded and bleeding and has to be chased--if the hunter can even keep up--until it dies of exhaustion and blood loss.Humans are among the best long-distance runners in the animal kingdom. Our distant ancestors probably hunted precisely this way, called persistance hunting, wounding animals and running them down over hours. Our bodies are keenly designed for long distance running, with springlike legs and efficient evaporative cooling. Persistance hunting is thought to have evolved 2 million years ago. http://www.slate.com/articles/sports/sports_nut/2012/06/long...
