Jackson’s throwing sticks

16 Feb

Jackson practicing with his throwing sticks. He hits the cone 3 out of 4 times!
Native Americans would use weapons similar to these to strike small animals. If it didn’t kill the animals it would at least stun them long enough to run up and finish the job. Hopefully Jackson’s aim is right on during our adventure. It would make a real nice meal if he could hit a few squirrels or a rabbit. Better than worms!
