    Deer in my yard. No weapons. How to eat them?

    Primal Fuel
    As title indicates. No gun. Maybe dig a trap? Can't persistence hunt because they will run off of my property.

    Flubby tubby gums latching onto me
    For all that I've done wrong, I mastodon something right...

    Do as the bobcat does. They're 20 pounds, but can take down prey 8x their body weight. They have killed deer. Jump on that sapsucker and bite 'im.

    There are snares you can make, but I've never tried them.

    Invest in an atlatl. Saw a 7-year-old boy take down a dear with essentially a pair of sticks.

    Be careful when you grab them. Hooves are very sharp.

    Atlatl will take practice, but I'm intrigued.

    You have a car?

    I guess if you can't hit one with your car, maybe you could drive to town to get a bow or something?

    Turn a wooden broom into a spear. Cut off the bristles, and sharpen...

    Or chase the deer down. Remember hearing something about that, paleo man chasing down food that was faster than him, because he had the stamina.

    Can't get them with the car. Too many trees.

    If I had money for weapons, I'd have weapons. I'm canned-fish Primal, not fru-fru Primal.

    A home-made weapon may well be in order. Spear or atlatl...maybe a big rock?

    Persistence hunting, as I hinted at earlier, is limited to my five acres. It would take a few hundred acres to tire a deer, I'm sure.

    Beer?

    Maybe you could ferment some corn or something. Get 'em good and drunk?

    That's actually an amazingly great idea.
