DescriptionCome try your hand at an ancient form of hunting! The atlatl is a 10,000-year-old type of weapon that predates the bow and arrow. Regional members of the World Atlatl Association in conjunction with First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park provide visitors and competitors with a chance to learn about this unique weapon, plus primitive bows and tomahawks and to compete in youth, men's and women's categories for prizes from the First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park gift store.
