        so what, its still chasing down prey to exhaustion regardless. saying it only worked in africa means it worked for 70% of human history, more if you count non Sapien species

          No one said it just works in Africa, my guess is it only works in almost entirely flat places with no terrain at all, with adequate gazelle/deer/antelope populations, intense heat, and almost no major vegetation or brush.

          However the only actually documented cases were in that one tribe in Africa. So until someone kills a pronghorn or antelope or something in some other case we can only say it works in that one location.

      You both don't understand what you're talking about.
      Persistence hunting only works in extreme temperatures like those in Africa and Australia. That's why you find actual persistence hunters in these regions. Go further north where it's colder and you won't find any persistence hunters because it's too cold.
      When it's cold animals won't suffer from heat exhaustion. Just about any quadruped can beat us on foot at -5 Celsius because bipedalism is inefficient and slow. Endurance hunting works because most animals lack the ability to sweat and can't cool down without laying down in some shade. Thermoregulation is not an issue for them when it's fucking snowing.

        The only somewhat confirmed case of it is in one place in Africa as far as I am aware.

        There is a guy who attempts it in deserts in the American southwest and has yet to be successful, unless that has changed recently.

          What the fuck are you talking about? There are people who beat horses in a race on a warm European day. Horses are way faster and have better endurance than the deer in Africa.

          so youre saying it does exist. but only in specific instances

          We are slower than quadrupeds and expand more energy to cover the same distance however we lose body heat faster than they do because we sweat. Heat exhaustion isn't as big of a deal for us as it is for most animals. Unless the animal jumps into a cold river or we don't keep up the pace and it's allowed to rest in some shade we'll eventually cause it to overheat and stop.

            I've not seen very much about people vs horses, but as far as actual persistence hunting goes other than that one special place in Africa, all who have attempted exhaustion hunting have failed. That's simply a reality unless someone has succeeded in the last few months I didn't hear about. It is simply the case that only in very isolated situations does exhaustion hunting actually work. I realize how fundamental this lore is to the "distance running community" but it just isn't there wheb you look into. Maybe it is technically possible in some particular situations- but it is not a viable or tenable form of hunting.

              There's archeological evidence in northern Mexico and Siberia as well, but it's not currently used because we maxed out a different part of the skill tree.
              If we evolved for anything, it's long distance travel on flat ground and throwing things accurately. Turns out the calculus needed for tossing stones combines with pattern recognition to form... consciousness?
              It's fine if you hate running but this cope is unbecoming. I hate deadlift and would rather squat then run. Both of us will make it bro

                Sorry for TLDR. It has been attempted in Mexico and no one ever succeeded. It has been attempted in American deserts and no one has succeeded.

                In fact the only recorded occurrence of persistence hunting is in one very isolated circumstance in Africa. Examples of it in the modern world basically don't exist otherwise.

                It has nothing to do with hating runners (I don't) however I do hate this tendency to create meme-lore based on pseudo science for everyone's retarded lifestyle. Some runners just enjoy running but it is unfortunately a hobby that has become very "lifestyle" oriented and that is the reason alot of people do hate long distance runners.

                Anyways all the people who attempt it say the same thing- the animal sprints away far faster than a human can run, gets tired, lays down and gets a breather, then hops up and sprints away again OR the animal goes over a hill or ridgeline and the runner loses visual and has to sort of briefly track the animal during which time the animal has usually rested. The problem isn't heat it is terrain. Why don't you just fucking read about the people who have actually tried it, or better yet, try it yourself and prove me wrong.

                If you succeeded you'd be one of the only people to have achieved it and would likely gain 15mins of notoriety for this reason. If it was a viable form of hunting it would not be this difficult. While I think humans do have some physical characteristics making them moderate distance runners in the animal kingdom, I think the case could be made that it is more likely their niche as predators was probably as a stalker and as group oriented strategic short distance herders. Not coursers like wolves who chase to exhaustion but the tracking and intelligence skills would allow humans to chase into bottlenecks and other groups in wait. That or outright staking and dry gulching animals from cover. That is the human hunting niche. Not running for 20 miles to maybe get one antelope.

            Wolves especially have way better endurance than us in cold weather. Without the risk of overheating they will run faster than us and for longer periods of time, and this is the case for most quadruped animals. Without Africa's extreme heat we can't practice persistence hunting because the animal won't overheat when forced to run long distance. We rely on extreme temperatures to chase down animals as we can cool ourselves down while moving through sweating which is probably very difficult for the IST brainlets to understand.

              As far as modern humans are concerned they can't exhaust game animals even in some of the hottest locales. It takes almost completely flat terrain, with no stands of trees. There are very isolated locals where this can be done. You can take 100+ degree temps and have a worldclass runner chase a deer or antelope and if they so much as go over a slight ridge you are going to have to track them and they will get a rest and you are back to square one. These places get as hot as Africa where this has been tried. The issue isn't just temperature it is terrain.

              This is not me saying this- I'm paraphrasing the experience of one of the more well documented runners to attempt this. Let's say ancient man was more fit than a high level modern runner, this would still not solve the tracking issue.

            No they are not. Wolves literally of starvation and are cannibalized by their pack because they run out of energy.

            Bipedalism + sweating is why humans have the endurance edge. Its why we were able to afford the calories required to develop a complex brain/nervous system.

                Apparently that's exactly right if you look at the skeletons of Neanderthals. They don't have any of the physical adjustments you'd get from throwing spears or archery.
                Ancient humans usually had two different shoulders because you'd only really throw with your dominant arm and this would leave your other arm undeveloped so either Neanderthals didn't have the ability to throw or they threw with both arms equally.

        Persistence hunters can be found in Africa and Australia because they're literally too fucking dumb to come up with a more effective way of hunting game.
        Europeans developed traps, more accurate ranged weapons, pack hunting tactics etc... Thousands of years ago while some dumb African tribal fucks still burn shedloads of calories chasing wounded gazelles all day long.
        European stock has evolved to hunt in short, tactical bursts. Hard, intense sprints and activity followed by relatively relaxed walking and light jogging ultimately for a short period of time. Running down prey is such a daft, energy slack way to get your calories when you can have the hunt over and done with in 20 minutes and spend the rest of the day eating and fucking.

    Humans are literally one of the only animals that sweat through the entire body to keep cool while moving for a long time (eg in a long distance run). Most other mammals start panting after a minute of chasing

            They can't even pant. If you run after an antelope for about 10 miles it'll be unable to continue moving. They've been seen stopping after only 2 miles which is nothing for a human.

                African dogs do that there. The point is that most herbivores just cover the ground too quickly to be run down. Tracking is incredibly unreliable and usually lends itself to "finding some animal" rather than "finding the one you've ran down". A hunter needs a constant supply of sugar heavy food and water to do this. Even organisms that evolved specifically for it resolve to it only when circumstances are dire (i.e. wolves). There are just too many ifs and buts for it to be a dominant hunting strategy for the most dominant species on Earth.
                It wasn't the thing that set us apart, and neither was it the dominant strategy, nor did we evolve specifically for it. Humans ultimate evolutionary ability is versatility. We can resort to persistence hunting, if needs be (for example if we see a wounded or exhausted animal), but we weren't made for it. We cover ground too slowly and burst too poorly, we don't have innate tracking abilities (to the point we resort to using other species for it) and neither are we particularly food efficient.
                That cope got created because with limited evidence versatility and it's roots are really hard to explain, and anthropologists (like most humanitarians) tend to grasp for deductive reasoning, because simple general ideas are easy to "verify" (explain) in limited evidence circumstances. Then fucking pop science catches up to them and we get those retarded claims.

                You are claiming that a human can run at the top speed for 44 miles. I find the proposition utterly ridiculous. We can run for 44 miles, sort of, but the speed at which we will cover that will be utterly abysmal by any canid standards. In fact it will be abysmal by a healthy hog's standards.

                It doesn't need to. It covers ground quickly enough it will finish the job in ten miles tops. That's actually energy sustainable, logical way to persistence hunt. We can't do that at all. We can't track quickly enough, we can't burst quickly enough (any animal worth it's shit will lose us), and we can't track it afterwards reliably.
                We also have significantly better ways to hunt available to us to pretty much never need to rely on thin shit (trapping, fishing, scavenging).

                Never said that. There probably are some tribes that pull this off reliably. There just are significantly more tribes that do other things reliably. It's the beauty of a human as a species, we are incredibly versatile, and every time we don't attempt to specialize we actually advance further than other human populations. To the point where it's exceptionally hard to tell why are we so versatile in the first place.
                What you're presenting is a classic deductive pitfall. It's impossible at this point with the evidence we have even to establish cause and effect of this evolutionary adaptation, let alone it's impact on our evolution.
                It is certain, however, that there are significantly better adapted species for that type of activity and they don't use it as their main survival methods.

                African wild dogs and cheetahs. If there was a competition between a wild dog, cheetah, and human to see how many animals they could hunt in a day, it would be embarrassing for us. A wild dog and cheetah actually have the speed to run prey down, which in nature is WAY more effective than human persistence hunting. It doesn't matter that humans can run for 6 hours to kill one gazelle when other animals just stalk, pounce, and kill. In fact most of human history that's what we did. Paleolithic motherfuckers don't really have to nutrition required to be burning 6,000 calories running all day. It's much more efficient to creep up on a watering hole with 10 dudes and gank a buffalo with your spears and rocks. We are persistence hunters, but not in the way you're thinking. We're persistent in that we can sit somewhere for 15 hours waiting for the perfect time to kill, not being a top marathon runner.

                Keep in mind that we aren't adapted to hunk on 10 kg of meat at once either. If that was our main method of feeding and we had to survive using it predominantly pre preservation, we would probably have a somewhat different digestive system accounting for very infrequent but larger meals. Instead we have more similarities with a pig, a universal omnivore, that eats very frequently.

                Do you consider our digestive tract that hardly eat more than 2kgs of solid food, and straight up incapacitates you when you eat large meats with solid intervals (a couple of weeks, say), a well adapted system for infrequent, but large meals (like, let's say a whole antelope would be for a large group of hominids would be)?
                Why in the fuck did we need to eat marrow anyway? We're supposed to be amazing at endurance hunting, best ones there is, yet we barely can eat a third of our prey at once since our digestion doesn't take large meals well, and yet we ate marrow, so much so it is pretty consistent across most finds.

Even then, given success rates presented and weight of the prey they barely can consume all that without preservation, leaving no need to consume marrow. Yet they did.

                We aren't. Wolf is significantly better at it in it's habitat, simply because it does not require any such adaptation. Spotted dogs are better than us in our own habitat, because they can simply use night to do it and do not require any such adaptations.
                The length of the distance is irrelevant to this particular activity, or rather it is suboptimal. We can do it, we just don't do it particularly well in any habitat. It's the beauty of a human, it can do a whole lot of shit in any given habitat, it just doesn't do it quite as well as the thing specialized in it.

                You clearly don't understand how carnivores work. The predators are usually smaller and slower than their prey and they can only catch whatever is too weak to run away.
                Humans on the other hand aren't restricted like this, we can catch even healthy prey because of how good we are at running. If anything we end up using less energy as we don't give up and abandon the hunt.

                A wolf can track prey much better than a human. A wolf can course prey over large swaths of varied terrain.

                A human cannot do this. As purely sight hunters, humans would not be able to course prey unless on a wide flat unvaried landscape with no breaks in line of sight. If humans were persistence hunters we would have much better noses.

    I can't really say if humans are natural "long distance" runners, but I will say that the whole exhaustion hunting thing is retarded.

    There is no proof at all that this form of hunting is viable. There was one weak account in Africa where conditions were perfect but all the people who have tried to recreate it have failed. High level runners putting alot of thought into it on numerous attempts always fail. It doesn't even make sense from a calorie perspective. It is a click bait tier meme from the distance runner crowd that exhaustion hunting is a thing.

              I am certain we didn't do so on a regular basis, otherwise we wouldn't have survived this long. But I am pretty sure it happened on quite a few occasions. And a thing like that doesn't happen to something like an adult pig or an adult goat.

                also forgot to mention we were like 110-130 lbs on average (which synchs up with the average weight for marathon runners) so it was a lot less load baring stress over time.

                If you were on your feet all your life and ran through puberty to adulthood and beyond albeit not maybe marathon distances you'd have tendon adaptation that no modern man even the most oogabooga tribe could match. So you wouldn't die from that either in any statistically relevant number compared to the myriad of other threats that. People try to much to think about what it would be like from the standpoint of throwing a modern person into the shoes of ancient people rather than try to entertain what a person who spent all their life in that era would be like.

                How do you even measure average of a couple of fossils? How in the hell do you know? There is like one surviving fossil of Homo ergaster, for example. That one is tall and reasonably light (although heavier than any hominid before him), but to assume they were all like him is jut completely wild.

                because we've basically tried every height/weight intercept and our getting taller actually didn't coincide with a lot of weight increase. We can see that we lanked out and contracted across most of our existence. Unless you just depart what smarter people have speculated and just go straight to UFOs and dinosaurs didn't have proto-feathers let just assume most of paleoanthropology was done in good faith.

                It actually did, or rather we increased in weight significantly when we became bipedal. We have significant variance in current human population, Twa to Tutsi with pretty much a foot of average difference in essentially the same habitat. To assume any kind of an average based upon a single surviving skeleton is a ridiculous proposition only fit for pop science.

                We kind of steadily gained weight onwards from there, some more than others (Neanderthals are assumed to be heftier than Sapiens) but a Heidelbergensis is generally assumed, at least by skeletal features , to be more robustly built than ergaster.

          Because it is not a part of the explaination. Chimps do have eccrine glands across the body and use it to regulate body temperature, just not quite as much as we do. Adaptation occured earlier, and you can't say when because it doesn't fossilize.

              It's for neither. It just is. We just evolved in a different climate, where thinner hair (with a much thicker one on the head) and even more sweat increased survivability. There is no nessecery quasality between better thermoregulation and long distance running. It helps to either walk, run short distance or run long distance. It gust helps in that climate in general.
              Why did we get it then? It's impossible to say, we had sweat all over our body way before we even migrated north, most old world apes have sweat glands all over the body, why we in particullar evolved about ten times more of them is impossible to say without making a very broad assumption.

    Based sexts of truth.

    Anthropologists have known this for a long time, however at one point a guy wrote a paper that said “instead of just walking long distances they probably used a combination of walking with running” and media picked it up and falsely spread the idea that we evolved to run.

    We are made to jog or walk long distances, we’re talking paces of like 5-8kmh.

    Running, as in full blown running fast for long ass distances isn’t something humans are made to do.

    As cavemen we would wound an animal with traps or spears and jog after it for hours until it dies of exhaustion. We didnt fucking RUN at 15kmh for 3 hours

      We weren't made to jog. Walking is for long distances and running is for short distances. Jogging is not a calorie efficient way of moving long distances and it's unnecessarily taxing on the body.

    >no other animal stalks prey down to exhaustion
    >every other apex predator uses a combination of ambush, sheer strength and incapacitating abilities such as poison to kill their prey
    >somehow humans do practice this incredibly inefficient unreliable hunting technique
    persistence hunting morons are pathetic

      funny thing is that even predators know to stop chasing when the effort isn't worth it anymore
      persistence hunting is some absolute cringe nerd larp

    Tracking prey
    Walking long distance
    Using tools

    Anything else is useless

      Track prey, familiarize yourself with game trails, water sources, calls, animal behavior. Dry gulch from tree/cover or herd animal into bottlenecks with other hunters waiting. This is the way mankind hunted I'm sure of it.Moderate distance running would be useful and consistent with such a strategy. This makes more sense than persistence hunting considering our slow speeds, lack of scent tracking abilities, caloric expenditure etc. We are moderate runners anyway you look at it.

      I frown on stalking because I think in any area with considerable brush it is impossible, but this past year I was turkey hunting with trad archery gear one evening and on my way back in, I see a group of deer down this winding firebreak and decide what the he'll let's see how close I can get. So I positioned myself behind a big cedar that jutted out into the firebreak and slowly crept in. I probably got within 20 yards of them. This experience sort of changed my opinion on the viability of stalking but it was mostly just luck. Persistence hunting though I think is actually a pipe dream. Stalking is at least realistically viable as a hunting method.

    >The persistence hunt is still practiced by hunter-gatherers in the central Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa. The hunters run down an antelope, such as a kudu, in the midday heat, for up to five hours and a distance of up to 35 km (22 mi) Wikipedia
    So 22 mile persistent hunts in 5 hours? 4 mph is just a brisk walking pace. Joggers BTFO

    All evidence says otherwise.
    Humans hold the record for longest distance in a day.

    Literally the opposite. Wasn't one of the tactics hunters used chasing the prey until it collapsed out of exhaustion?

    just because you idiots cant do it doesnt mean older humans couldnt, we are in general weaker and more pampered than they were, stopping out of choice because we have no fear of starvation

      The issue is not human conditioning it is tracking and the fact that there are better ways to hunt. I mean you'd almost have to be retarded to do it that way imho

    True, the idea humans, the highly intelligent social tool users, evolved to mindlessly run after prey all day spending thousands of calories on a potential failed hunt instead of just sitting in a bush with a bow or spear and leading herds into ambushes is retarded.

    Maybe the shitty retarded ones did, and the ones smart enough to ambush prey and make intelligent use of of weapons moved on to agriculture and pastoralism.
