Atlatl makes meat!

Hey all, I finally put all the pieces together and made it happen. This guy came in to 4 yards and I managed to put a dart thru him. He went about 40 yards and tipped over.

Outstanding. That is a good looking rig you have. Did you make it? What type of broadhead are you using.
Great trophy also.

Yes, I made everything but the broadhead which is a 165gr Simmons. The atlatl is Osage with a water buffalo horn spur and wrapped in a bullsnake skin. The darts are ash and weigh about 3000gr. Here is a closer pic of atlatl. Dave
