walks with goats- thats awesome, thanks for the pics. I appluad you. I know only what I have seen on t.v. about atlatles, and you mentioned you are not accurate yet,but im sure its just a matter of practise and time, and you seem determined.
Poster didn't say "she was betting her life on using an atlatle to hunt and defend herself", she is merely passing on great information about a primative but very effective skill. And the purpose of her post is to see if anyone else is using one, I know I read a post last month on another lady that was wanting to actually legally take game with one. A blowgun is no match for a 50 BAR, but we still like shooting blowguns.
