jeremiah johnson Elk hunt scene
I’m pretty sure that elk died. No trick photography or cgi. Dead elk.

Any other movie has a real scene like that.

Google “cannibal holocaust”.

I think there’s also a really old western that killed a bunch of horses (they may have gone over a cliff iirc).

In Southern Comfort, those Cajuns definitely shot and were field dressing real pigs.

In Game of Thrones, the stag Tywin Lannister is cleaning in his series debut was a real freshly slaughtered stag.

Has to be some old westerns that used real footage. Hud had a few scenes that looked real.

I remember reading about how they used to get horses to flip over by tying a rope to the front foot and letting it hit the end at a full gallop. The riders has to be good.

re: jeremiah johnson Elk hunt scene
In Apocalypse Now an ox was sacrificed.

Real life hunts were seen in The World in His Arms (1952, Alaskan seals) and The Last Hunt (1956, buffalo). In the latter film buffalo were actually seen being shot, though from a non-gory distance.

You didn't really see much of anything in TWIHA -- the filmmakers were very careful to show little more than seals cavorting on a beach.

Those scenes were supervised by the Humane Society or some similar group. You don't really see anything; it's all suggested by the editing.

There was a similar device known as a "trip wire". This was in the very early days -- various animal rights groups would later clamp down on these practices. I believe several horses were killed on The Charge Of The Light Brigade (1936) which got a lot of negative publicity. After WWII rules for handling animals would get much more stringent.

The people doing the sacrificing were real tribesmen from the Indochina jungles that Coppola called in as extras for Kurtz' camp.

In "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse," the tribe also sticks a bunch of wild pigs for sacrifice for the crew. It's nuts, but it adds to the total physcosis of that film.

re: jeremiah johnson Elk hunt scene
