    I have the itch for a Hill style longbow. I’ve owned them before so I know they are slow and some have hand shock. I’m looking at a HH tembo. I can’t decide what grip to go with between the trad straight grip, dished or locator. Locator might fit me better since I shoot low wrist recurves.

    My first bow was a Howard Hill "Westley Special", 50#@28. I shot it for a few months, split finger instinctive, and got nowhere with it. Eventually I put it away and forgot about archery. About six months ago the bug bit again, and I have been shooting barebow recurve (USAA rules) in a league...

    Wife and I are pretty picky with our tags. Here are a few of the 50+ we passed on this morning. Was looking to fill a couple antlerless unless a big buck came out. Not many big bucks in my area, they don’t usually make it past 3.5.

    I have some hard rock maple shafts coming in for my 68"/53#@28" Jet Safari Premier Hill style ASL and was feeling a little anxious regarding what sort of point weight might be needed as in recent talks with Kevin Forrester I spec'ed them at 65# spine and they'll be tapered for 30"s long when...

    I wasn't going to video to much this year at Denton and didn't even bring my bigger camera out. In fact I didn't video anything the whole first day. So many people came up and thanked me for the prior videos I kinda felt bad :) so on Saturday I started videoing using my small camera I use for...

    Gentlemen, I just purchased a used Howard Hill Tembo, 70", [email protected], it arrived to my door yesterday. It is a beautiful bow but I have one concern and a question that maybe you guys can answer. The grip on this bow is very narrow and knife edged and while drawing and shooting it kinda makes my...

    Due to injury and age I have had to lighten my draw weight and have been shooting mostly light target recurves shot barebow 3 under. But I found in classifieds a light Howard Hill Redman, yew limbs and a cocobolo riser. It is only 66" long and I draw it to a weight in the mid 30s. My draw is...

    All I can say is Denton Hill was a blast this year. Was it the great weather ? Was it the great turn out ? Was it because my good buddy Ray won the Eagle Eye I think it was because of all the great people that I have been so blessed to get to know and what they have brought to my shooting...
