Hunting Deer with an Atlatl

by Daniel E. Schmidt, D&DH Editor

This is one of the most dramatic deer hunting videos I’ve ever seen. A 7-year-old
Pennsylvania boy takes to the woods with his family, and he collects a mature doe.
The twist? He shoots it with an atlatl!

What are your thoughts on hunting with primitive equipment?

One thought on “Hunting Deer with an Atlatl


    Good job!
    Hunting like it was meant to be. problem. Just like the old days. Once you are able, you are out there. Especailly with that type of weapon from a safety standpoint, you don’t have to worry about a bad shot hitting someone or something.
    The weapon…disgusting?! Really!?! Better than a high powered rifle w/ scope at 200 yards. Talk about challenging and evening the odds, you can’t get any better than this.Posted by: Daniel
