    A long time ago hunting was very different. Back in the days of spears and bows and arrows, something called an Atlatl was developed. It was a tool to launch a spear, faster and farther in hopes of catching dinner from a safe distance. We'll find out all about it from Patrick McGuire and Evie will even give it a try.
