Ancient Aboriginal megafauna art and shot placement guides!
      #369501 - 23/09/22 09:58 PM

Ancient art of mega fauna in Arnhemland. I've hunted there many times. Some of this art is also an ancient form of x-ray. Shot placement guides of the hunted species. Showing organs and where to hit a beast with ones spear.

its a stunning example how environment friendly "primitive" indigenous people real are, most of the big beast were eaten until they were gone for ever.

How racist! . They were civilisations wecare told these days. Just no wheel, no writing, no well built dwellings ... No cloth No metals no no no ....


Hunting and eating out of existence is possible. But so is a drying climate. With the large inland seas disappearing, what once was lush jungle became savannah and desert.

Seas rising, if it was actually true,could return Central Australia into jungles.

I don't think they show the "shot placement guides" cave paintings. I had lots of photos of them from caves East of Kakadu on the edge of Arnhemland from the 1990s? But the external HDD drive's power unit failed and can't access them. Need to get the HDD risk out elsewhere to see if it still works and files are intact. Or rephoto them. Maybe next year?

they try to survive each day with the lowest use of work, killing the big is the best to feed your clan.
don't damn them, it was part of the master plan to make man the crown of creation.

If you were starving you'd go for the biggest & easiest target you could find, plain & simple!

Actually allegedly the hunter gatherer Aboriginals practiced "conservation" in terms of not depleting wildlife and presumably edible plants. So ecareas were reserves for harder times. Eg allegedly the desert Aboriginals kept Ayers Rock/Uluru environs for harder times. Good permanent waterholes at the base of the rock. Resultant wildlife. If hunted excessively, no reserve.

Locally the Aboriginals lived here in cooler lands during summer and the Murray plains, warmer inland, during winter.

Hunter and gatherers often practiced restraint. Do not eat all the fruit, not all the grass seeds, yams etc.

Some have speculated hunters and gatherers worked less hours than agarian farmers. More free time. As nomads also less likely to be enslaved by chieftains, kings etc. Tied to the land, with a collar ...

Agarian societies do cope with times of shortage better. IF excess crops are stored and not squandered. In Africa often a good crop means no crop is grown the next year. Eat up the reserves, rather than add to the reserves.

Hunter gatherer existence often had a shorter life expectancy. Old people on a sedentary farm can be looked after. Old people unable to walk, ride, etc in nomadic, and hunter gatherer societies are often abandoned.

Yes in tough times certainly hunter gatherers did whatever was needed to survive.
