Half Fanatic #846
Not sure about that, but I did catch a jackrabbit in New Mexico when I was about 14 years old by just running him down till he got tired. Really.
But I cheated - had tennis shoes on...

* sigh* ...I LOVE that clip, haven't watched it for awhile. This was the first time I noticed the hunter was wearing shoes!
Barefoot and happy
Persistence hunting is something I would like to try some day.
Don't underestimate the level of tracking skill necessary. There's an account in "Born to Run" of two guys who try it in Montana, and the prey animals are too good at mixing into the herd and disappearing. That's how they deal with predators of all kinds, us included.
you mean like this?

Ha! Poor choice - pronghorn have been recorded running 55 mph and they can maintain 45 for miles (one hypothesis is that they evolved to escape dire wolves). Might be better to pick, say, an elk.
Although pronghorn is even tastier than elk...yum...
