Spear Hunter Sets Sights On Africa

SUMMERDALE, Ala. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For one man, hunting with a gun is child’s play.

Gene Morris is a 73-year-old retired colonel who calls himself the “greatest living spear hunter in the world,” and has been hunting huge game in Summerdale, Alabama, for more than 20 years.

Morris, who’s hunted all over the world, has a soft spot for his hometown, especially the Spear Hunting Museum, which he started, and according to museum curator Sharon Henson, Morris’ manly maneuvers with the spear are only outweighed by his persistence.

She says, “I don’t know any other man with that kind of stamina.”

And while Morris can stay home and mow down monstrous mammals like antelope and moose, it’s his upcoming African adventure that’s got him fired up.

Morris plans to use his African spear safari to fulfill his goal of killing one of each of the world’s deadliest animals, like a lion or elephant.
