If you are on the lookout for your next survival project, why not make your own primitive atlatl that can be used for survival hunting.
The atlatl is a throwing spear that has a hook on one end and a handle on the other. By essentially lengthening the arm, it provides additional leverage to propel a dart much farther and faster than a one-handed throw.
A well-made atlatl can throw a dart over 100 yards at speeds of over 100 miles per hour, and can be made easily with materials from your surroundings.
With a little practice, the atlatl is a primitive weapon that everyone should know how to make in a survival situation.
All you need is a straight stick, a knife, a couple of feathers, and some sinew or cordage.
