Harpoon Throwing With Maligiaq!

Here is an example of a different type of harpoon that is propelled from a throwing board. It is the same type of shaft, but a slightly different technique when being used in the hunt. There are many different types of harpoons and hunting style can vary from hunter to hunter. As time passed lunds also known as skiffs were more commonly used also changing the way that the harpoon is used. From a kayak it is thrown from the knees usually, whereas from a lund it is lunged from a standing possition.
