The Spear Hunting Museum, which opened quietly in December 2006, is as much about its founder as it is about spear hunting. The founder is Gene Morris, who proudly calls himself "The Greatest Living Spear Hunter in the World." He drives a Chevy Blazer that he purchased, according to the museum's curator, Sharon Henson, because it was the only car with a blank tailgate on which he could have painted, "The Greatest Living Spear Hunter in the World." Morris's other nickname is "Spear Chunker," which is written on his hats, on the labels that are affixed to his camos, and on the license plate on the front of his car.
