Former NFL Defensive Lineman Jared Allen Spears a Bull Elk

Watch as NFL pro Jared Allen takes a primitive approach to elk hunting.

Jared Allen is an intense guy. That’s pretty clear when you watch him play football in his heyday, but it’s even more apparent when you watch the guy hunt.

Allen has long been an avid outdoorsman who sometimes takes a hardcore approach to hunting (He’s reportedly killed a bear with a knife and his bare hands). In the video below, Allen takes a page out of his ancestors’ playbook as he hunts a bull elk with a spear from a treestand.

This clip was posted in 2009 when Allen played for the Minnesota Vikings. He also played for the Chicago Bears and most recently, the Carolina Panthers. He retired officially on February 18, 2016. Allen is also featured on our list of 10 NFL Players Who Love to Hunt and Fish.
