Whoosh, Back to the Pleistocene!

It looks like you will soon be able to hunt big game with spears and atlatls in Montana.

Just remember that the old-timers usually went out in groups--unless they were defensive ends for the Minnesota Vikings (YouTube video.)

Didn't Montana already allow atlatl hunting for a number of years? I think they even had something like a three-day special season just before bow season opened. I had understood that it was canceled a few years back, basically because virtually no one was interested. But perhaps there's been a revival since.

Honestly, I don't know. But I think that Congress should act to close the atlatl show loophole.

Before someone throws a spear through it.

Well, Japanese scientists are going to bring back the woolly mammoth. So sharpen your spearpoints and get your loincloth from the cleaners!
