One thought on “July Atlatl Events!”

  1. I just want to thank you for the hours of awesome fun I had today practicing with my new Atlatl, I have done tons of reading in the past and have always had an interest in ancient tools, weaponry, and hunting equipment. The Atlatl that I purchased today is of the highest quality and craftsmanship!!! I am hoping to practice enough with it so that I may be able to hunt with it in the near future, I sustained a shoulder injury years ago in my left shoulder, leaving me unable to Archery hunt, however now with this new tool I am able to shoot one handed and am quite hopeful that I will be able to use this new method once I gain the accuracy and skill needed!!! Many thanks again!!
