    Atlatls are very cool. Amazing what the mind of man can conceive.

    I skipped most of Astronomy in Physics, but I thought Red Stars are just cooler stars for one of several reasons...

    I know a ton about bows and bowmaking, but I am an amateur in the atlatl world. I love ancient weapons and the atlatl is one of those about which less is known. Since the handle and dart shaft are mostly made of wood, few pieces of evidence about them survive.

    There are stone dart tips buried in mammoth kill bones, and then there is the controversy over the north american unique innovation of the added (to the thrower) weights or banner stones.

    Alright, so back to practice...

    Having only mild problems with shooting a dozen arrow flight with the Z7 power bow.

    However, having a weird problem with practice broadheads patterning 6"-9" lower than field points.

    Why do I think I have an arrow spine problem...

    I hate this spooky 2nd and 3rd derivative crap that goes on with archery gear.

    Myself, I am not a deer hunter. I prefer duck hunting, pheasant, quail, and geese. I love guns, all kinds, but particularly shotguns.
    My younger brother is a gun collector and a gun smith. His son was a cop and a collector of military arms.

    I like people who hunt. For the most part, that is. Everything that I kill is used. Nothing is wasted. And in my view those who hunt deer do the same.

    My Dad was a cattle rancher near Kinnear, Wyoming. He loved hunting sheep.

    I grew up wing-shooting Pheasants with a few quail, grouse and some (running) rabbit hunting thrown in.
    To this day, I am a rather incorrigible trigger slapper.

    I was given a nice Bear compound by a women across the street, I helped, i asked about it on the wall, she said to take it, I tried declining, she made it clear that would be rude. It is either 80 or 60 # draw weight (hard to read the handwriting) I have not loosed an arrow yet. It looks solid, strings look good. Here is a pic.

    Looks identical to my first bow Bear Trophy Hunter from the mid-90's. Mine also has draw length, weight, and cable length. Mine is also very difficult to read, more like looking at the indention in the sticker where they wrote the draw weight, it also says 80#, which I don't believe.

    I was a 30-something when I was pulling this bow, so who knows. The string is way too ratty to pull it back and measure the draw-weight.

    That is a hoot, I recognized the bow right away!

    Everything looks good and solid but I'd feel more comfy with a person who knows more than I, looking over it first, before I fire it.


    I have drawn it back, several times.
