The atlatl is a primative weapon used perhaps as long as 8,000 years ago in Pennsylvania as the weapon of choice. Today, replicas of the weapon are being made and yesterday the Pennsylvania Game Commission went against the committee’s recommendation and gave preliminary approval to use the weapon for hunting deer. A final vote will take place in April. The preliminary vote was unanimous.
