The HuntPrimitive Hunter Atlatl set is a scaled up version of the Starter Atlatl set and suited for hunting Deer/wild hog sized game animals. The Rivercane main shaft is approximately 7′ long and includes an additional removable foreshaft system to easily switch between practice pointed foreshafts and Stone hunting pointed forshafts when you are ready to hunt, and easily switched back again, always preserving your stone points for the hunt. There is approx. 1 foot of exposed foreshaft to bring the full spear length to about 8′ long, carrying a sufficient stiffness and weight for real hunting application. It is Atlatl sets just like these that Ryan Gill uses to hunt and kill big game with in the featured HuntPrimitive films.
The thrower component of the atlatl system is longer than the the starter atlatl, and is built to balance the longer/heavier Hunting spears. The back side of the hardwood thrower also has a flat spot carved into it for the addition of a bannerstone if you should ever need or desire the use of one.
These kits are available in 2 or 3 spear sets, and with or without the addition of stone hunting pointed foreshafts. They do come with a practice pointed foreshaft per spear, so no need to order those separately. Additional or replacement foreshafts can be purchased by clicking here.
