Hey everybody. Sorry I'm a couple days late. Been busy the last couple of days. So, this month we're going to try something really interesting: atlatls. So, for those of you who don't know what an atlatl is, take a look at the following video: [video=youtube;IVZBZBKE4yA]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVZBZBKE4yA[/video] There's literally tons of info out there on this, specifically on YouTube and on Google, so go take a look. You're bound to find a set of instructions that you can follow. So, here's the challenge: By your own hands, build an atlatl and at least one dart (you may use modern archery arrowheads instead of knapped arrowheads if you wish). Here's the kicker, you then have to shoot the atlatl at a target (range is your choice, but I'd like to see somebody do it from 25 yards or greater) and preferably hit the target. Nothing bad happens if you don't hit it, but try to hit the target. When you've done this, try changing some things around to see if you can improve the basic design at all. Be sure to post and show us what you come up with! Also, as a small post-script, my try stick is underway at the moment. Life got in the way and I wasn't able to finish it in time. I'll get it done up and post it over at the try stick post for those of you to see it if you'd like.
