Looking forward to 2023, the Thunderbird Atlatl staff is setting up our calendar and planning trips for the year! We already were able to travel to Ohio earlier this month for a project with Kent State University. We had a great time with Kent State students and staff with a research project involving stone and copper projectile hafted on atlatl darts. We appreciated the help of students using atlatls to cast many darts for research on what turned out to be a rather rainy day.
We will post links to the research results as papers and results are published.
If you missed the shipping deadlines but still want to get an atlatl set for someone, Thunderbird Atlatl has gift certificates available
We can send the gift certificates out to your recipient by email immediately to arrive asap. We can also follow up with a paper gift certificate mailed to your recipient. We are happy to mail out your gift certificate if you prefer that type of delivery.
We are looking forward to the new year at the Thunderbird shop and wish all of our customers a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year.
It is getting pretty hectic at the Thunderbird Atlatl shop but we have a great staff of elves working here! We are fortunate that we have people coming in to help us during this busy season. Now is the time to purchase atlatl gifts while our inventory is good. Use the coupon code SAVE10 and save $10 on orders over $100 through Friday, December 9.
We are working up some other special offers as the season continues. We are shipping most of the orders through UPS ground or the post office via priority mail. Unfortunately, shipping has dramatically increased over the last year as shippers face increasing fuel costs and payroll costs. Every box we ship over three feet long gets an oversize fee of a minimum of $15 before shipping costs are added. It is actually more economical to order more items than fewer as the oversize fee is a fixed cost and has nothing to do with weight.
We are missing our beloved canine helper, Tina, again this holiday season (our second without her).

We are busy packing so please order early so we can get your orders out quickly!
Happy Thanksgiving! Over the busy holiday weekend through Monday, November 28, take some time and check out some of new items in our online catalog. We will be working on continually updating the catalog over the weekend as we prepare for the holiday season.
If you are ready to order before the holiday rush, we are offering a 10 percent coupon discount for orders of $100 or more through midnight Monday, Nov. 28. Just write in THANKS22 in the coupon section as you check out! The discount only applies to items purchased and does not include shipping.
Arrowhead Earrings, sinew, adhesives, large packs of hafting resin and, of course, our wide, variety of quality atlatls and darts!
Remember to check over the weekend for specials and new additions and save 10% by using the THANKS22 coupon.
It was a busy summer for Thunderbird Atlatl as we ventured out to a few of our favorite venues and got to spend time with atlatl friends.
We continue working on shop renovations. Plans are to finish our shipping area in the next month and get ready for the holiday rush.
If you are thinking of ordering a present for the holidays, we strongly urge you to order in November as we do not know how reliable the shipping services will be in December. In 2020, the shipping services were sometimes taking up to three weeks to deliver items they promised to deliver in three to four days. Shipping improved in 2021 and seems to be better in 2022. However, all the shipping services (faced with the same increasing prices we all face) have increased prices in 2022 as they try to cover their increased costs.
We are unable to accommodate any custom or special orders during this busy season. If you have questions, please call us at: 1-800-836-4520 or email at email@example.com
