I have heard that there are sport hunters that practice taking game with primitive projectile weapons including long bows, slingshots, aumentum, atlatls, spears, and even throwing sticks. I'm curious to compare the performance of each style of weapon that is being achieved by modern hunters. Are there data on:
- Optimal projectile weight?
- Projectile momentum at the moment of release?
- "Effective range," and its corollaries: maximum range and accuracy?
