    No hunting but I throw one a few times a year. This is a great survival tool that is quicker and easier to make than a bow. And potentially very powerful. Good vid.

    Yeah I told her to use the one that did not have the y on it the lower the dart is to the atlatl the more accurate you can be.

    Was out of town when our Archaeological Society had an outing ...with demo of a couple of atlatls...
    Looks like something that could be very useful and fun.

    I bought a kit and built one. I threw in the yard and took it to camp a few times. Haven't really messed with it in awhile.

    I hunt ALMOST exclusively bow. So, obviously, I would love to lay one down with an atlatl. That would have to be on a lease for me to try it though.

    Bishop, If I ever make you mad for any reason would you please tell me so I can apologize? You can hurt a guy with just about anything laying around. I don't heal so quick any more. I'd just as soon apologize.
