was a favourite sport
amoung Egypts noblemen. Hunting provided them with excitement
, animal skin
s to hang up, and a good meal
The animals they hunted for were Wild Bulls
, and Rabbits
. The weapons
used were spears
. The hunters were accompanied by long-legged hunting dogs
If the hunter wanted to make sure of his hunting success, he would build an enclosure of nets and posts, he would then drive the animal into it, and finally kill the poor animal for leisure.
If you were into hunting on water, the Nile was perfect. Hunters on papyrus boats, could harpoon hippoptamuses and crocodiles, and catch some fish aswell.
