Although this “throwing stick” has an historical use for hunting, today it’s known mostly for recreation. If you throw a Boomerang incorrectly, you might be chasing it like a dog. If you throw it correctly, and it finds its way back to you, you may be ducking to avoid decapitation. Boomerang tournaments test competitors’ distance, accuracy and speed, while also showcasing tricks and techniques. But you can just find a wide open space and try it out for yourself!
