VI. Making The Shot

Actual experiments with re-constructed, aboriginal bows and arrows, atlatals and butchering tools, on modern bison and elk, provide some indications about the use and effectiveness of stone tools. These experiments have left numerous questions about the effectiveness of the atlatl in terms of effective penetration. We have also found that classifying projectile points in terms of size to indicate weaponry type (large projectile points being used on atlatl shafts v.s. smaller points being used on bow and arrow shafts) may be more complex than metric classifications suggest.
