Valley of Fire Atlatl Endurance Challange

The atlatl, which predates the bow and arrow. The atlatl was commonly used by natives of the area while hunting bighorn sheep at Valley of Fire.
Persistence hunting is a hunting technique in which hunters use a combination of running and tracking to pursue prey to the point of exhaustion. While humans can sweat to reduce body heat, their quadruped prey would need to slow from a gallop to pant.
Among primates, endurance running is only seen in
humans, and persistence hunting is thought to have
been one of the earliest forms of human hunting,
having evolved 2 million years ago.
Join competitors from around the world as they test their endurance in pursuing their prey. Competitors will run a 1-mile fun run/walk, 5k, or half marathon trail route, and end with a precision shoot-out, as they test their skills in the ancient hunting tactics.
Please call[masked] for more information.
