Alan trying his hand at throwing an atlatl spear. Atlatls were used by Paleo-Indians to hunt the gigantic ancient bison (much larger than those we have today). Alan and I could have spent all day having spear throwing competitions. It is much more difficult than it looks! The skeletons of these bison as well as Paleo-Indian spear points have been discovered at Hudson-Meng.
